My new guy is doing well. I'm going to feed him in a little while. He ate a pellet last night. I just fed him one to see how he'd do since some don't eat for a few days. He moves around pretty good despite having virtually no anal fin, a tiny dorsal and a nub for a tail. Poor little guy! I'm so glad I got him!

My new guy is doing very well. He's eating well and isn't shy at all until the camera comes out. I'm still trying to get some decent pics of him.

I'm rehoming Little Dude. He'll be going to Indiana to his new home tomorrow. He'll be well taken care of.

That's good that your rescue is doing well (and I'm sure he will blossom with your masterful care!) and that little dude found a good home.

I'm glad to hear he's doing better (or betta). It's amazing what some clean water and some TLC will do for these fish.

Some are saying it looks like a bad case of finrot and other people are saying it looks like fin biting. He's swimming around fine and eats good and seems healthy otherwise. There are no red or black edges on what's left of his fins indicating fin rot.

I had one that looked similar. He had no fins left to speak of and although there was no sign of active rot left, he didn't have a chance to regrow them in the store cup. I named him Brillo for the scraggly wiry looking fins that he had left.

After I had him for a few months, he turned into a georgeous halfmoon. It was an awesome change.
