New Betta.... PICS! white,marble, or dalmation crowntail?

Well, I havent been on in a while an a lot has happned... I posted yesterday about my female, Tihs passing away earlier this month

One of my last post before then... I think like cloe to 2 months ago? I mentioned a gorgeous white crowntail that had just come in from a new breeder.... well, when I went back for him he was not there

Well, Wednesday my boyfriend took me to walmart... to just look... and youknow how that goes.... origianally I picked up a white veiltale.... I have had be luck with white bettas, but this guy was perfectly healthy (all of the bettas from the new breeder are)

then it happened, my eyes fell ontop of a cup, very icky with algea and poop.... and inside wasthe white crowntail from almost 2 months ago!!!!
Im guesing someone hid him with the plan of coming back for him ad never did (I have seen this happen a lot)

Well, he was all clamped up and laying on the bottom of the cup, but when I picked him up he flared SO nice at my thumb

So, needless to say, I walked out with the poor thing


he is VERY bloated and has SBD, he needs a name so PLEASE give me some ideas!!!!

-he is mainly white though he has faint lime green on his fins and on one side of his body some black spots-

I am concerned about the fact it looks like the base of his tail is bruised.... I am keeping him in his cup for now and have been switching the water gradually over to my water with API stress coat + water conditionor and 1 tsp of espom salt


well, heres some pics


































Name ideas???

Lol, I've had horrible luck with white bettas... he is from a differt breeder though so I am praying it goes better (fingers crossed)

Hes a seriously interesting guy though, Im fasting him for a couple days (hes bloated) and he was SO angry to see me feeding the other bettas, lol

:) he is not as bloated today (increased the espom salt for hm and my other CT Hurrican)

but he is SO skinny :(

Im finishing his 3 days of fasting just in case and 1 week of espom salt.... may end up having to treat him for parasites :(

But he seems happy (he tried to kill my turtle, lol)

Still undecided on a name... though Mystery and Frost are options ;)
