I noticed Petco has a whole stock of "baby betta" which are basically betta fry that have bent spines like this! They are almost U shaped and there are less and less of them each time I go in (I doubt they're selling them). Does he seem to get around ok?

Yeah. He is doing alot better and his swimming has improved. He has no problems going back and forth but still has some difficulty swimming up. If he is permently like this, I'm going to pick up one of the longer but shallow petco pet keepers that are in the reptile section with the green lids. He seems happy, regardless.

I seen the baby's too but alot of them looked sickly :( I dont know if its water quality or if they are actually sick. Im thinking water quality has alot to do with it. Once I got sluggles into some clean, warm water with aqumel plus - he started to improve.

Not sure if he has internal injury or SBD, try Epsom salt in the mean time (if you haven't already) in case it's SBD as you don't want it to become chronic. Looks like he is going to be one handsome boy! Good luck with the move and keep warm.

Cheers!

I had to up the epsom to 3 teaspoons before I saw any improvement but I think something somewhere may be damaged. He still has some swimming issues...
