I got this little guy from a local petsmart when my mom forced an old 1 gallon tank on me (I've learned a fair bit of betta care and he is moving to a 5gal soon), not knowing how bad shape he was in. I picked him because he was silver....and he turned red in a clean, heated tank. though petsmart told me he was a HM (the first I had heard of such a thing..I also saw dragons that day), but despite his health being noticeably better I'm a bit worried about his fins.
His tail is short and ragged..and the top (dorsal right?) fin is a bit narrow, limp, and paler than the rest of him...and his color is still pretty far off from anything I've seen anywhere else...a light red that seems to have a whitish shimmer to it....can someone tell me if there's something wrong? or do I just have a strange little fellow?
