UPDATE: Sammy.... found under a Walmart sink

While visiting a local Walmart (about 30 mins from me) of course I had to go check on the bettas... the conditions of the bettas there were poor.... most of the bettas had been tossed in a cup with another betta and all were sick or injured.... while checking on them, I began removing the bettas who were in cups together and adding water to the ones who needed... odly, there was an odd number of cups so when I went to get another cup (from under the sink in the fish section....) I found an occupied cup... inside of it was Sammy... a poor little boy with severe fin loss and who was severly underweight....
So here is HIS transformation


Sammy the day I got him: November 17th 2012























Sammy as of: January 19th 2012




















Sammy as of: January 21st 2012
















TODAY (Feb. 1st 2012)



This is Sammy as of today, his fins are 100% grown back and they came back PERFECTLY.... he is still obtaining color in the tips, but hes looking great!

Wow! He is one lucky fish! Very pretty!

I have only seen 2 fish in a cup once. I told someone there and they were just amused. I was p*****. And they check if there if there is 2 fish in the cup and charge for both!! I think that wrong as both are usually damaged. I hate walmart though I have found some of my prettiest fish there

Is it the way the lighting is or does their color change when they're sick?

What a handsome and lucky boy! I was at the local wal mart today. The bettas there were in tiny cups and filthy water and were either sick, dying or dead.

The walmart I got him from it happens alot, I was just there today and there were three cups with two bettas, and employee came over and fixed it, they are in the process of moving their bettas to a more public area since this is continuously happening mine at least are caring about it....

one of my rescue boys, Hercules, was one of the bettas placed in cup with another betta, first time I ever saw it and both were alive, when I went to purchase him, the guy at the registar checked... then leaned over and said that he had seen this happening a lot.... he only charged me for one... he happened to be a fish lover and new chances were that Herc would die....

Their color changes when they are stressed or sick... one of my rescues Fin was gray when I girst got him, he had NO fins left when I got him, his fins are stunted from the finrot that caused the loss, but he does have fins now and he is now a blue and violet
