King's druggy recovery! (Pic heavy!)

Ok so about a week, or so ago I got a betta from petsmart that was barely swimming, barely eating ect. And I posted some pretty bad pics of him.. when he wasnt in the best of health. Turned out my petsmart bettas were being over medicated (Their shipper put to much!) So he was basically drugged to the point that they couldnt think stright and died. Now after being in clean water, He is moving around, poseing and blowing bubble nests for me XD

So I couldnt help but share! My Double tail betta King!






His true colors!


He is still recovering from this cotten fungus.. (sorry forgot the name of it) But he has only had it a day and most of it has fallen off... You can probably see a small part of it at the edge of his dorsal fin on his body. That's the rest of it.. I almost ended up buying more meds for him to kill what ever it was growing on him. But a good friend of mine at my petsmart (who is also a betta lover) gave me his opinion and we both decided to just stick with water changes and salt.



Anyway I wanted to share the photos of King and his bubble nest before I am forced to destroy it in the middle of the night as I do a water change lol! :)

Thank you! :) When I found him he was just laying on the bottom with his dorsal fin laying over his body as if it took to much energy to swim normally. He's made me so proud seeing him swim like a healthy betta! :)

What a beautiful lad you have there! Gah, I can never get over Bettas with full, almost silk looking fins. Have a name for him yet?

Thank you :) His name is King, I figured it fit since he has a bit of comb tail in him. With the extra long dorsal fin it made me think of a crown. Plus he wiggles at me when I call him King ^_^

He's a pretty little boy. Great of you to rescue him. What is the name of the plant that occupies about half of the third shot? I really like and am looking for something like that to put in with my boys.

It's called Mint Charlie :) It seems to grow pretty quickly but is driving me crazy because some of the leaves are coming off :/
