Figured I would post this here, since they are really not an emergency.
Picked up two boys tonight while I was out at the pet store getting some Stress Coat. One is in horrible shape (referred to as a "Hughie" in our home" and the other would be in that shape in no time if he didn't come home. I figured it's the holiday season, they deserve a chance at a happy home for Christmas. I don't plan on keeping these boys, but rather help them get better and find them new homes.
First is Jack... I have NO idea what color he is but he's certainly a VT. He's the better off of the two, bad Swim Bladder Disease but he's able to swim a bit. He's forever at the top of his tank, looking pathetic. He's been there at least a month. His color is washed out, kinda creme with black outlined scales. Best is, a washed out Chocolate. The video makes him look orange/yellow. I'll get better photos once I track down my camera (thank you Children).
Second is Kris. Now Kris is quite upsetting to see. Any Betta lover would tear up at the sight of him. He has severe SBD, he's floating at the top with his body turned sideways. He has LOTS of spunk left in him though, I hold hope he will make a full recovery. He reminds me of Hughie, as Hughie was our second Betta which came to us in the same manner. Going to give the little guy something to prop himself on tonight so he can save his energy. I remember poor Hughie used to wedge himself between the thermometer and the tank. Anyways, a couple of prayers for him would be appreciated!
