Just checking in with an update on Ted the rescue betta!
In short, he is doing GREAT!! At two months of being home with us, set up in a 20 gallon split tank with fellow spoiled prince betta Simon, his metamorphosis is amazing!
When he was rescued he was a pale, whitish transparent sad little boy. After two months of clean, warm water, attention, love, good food, he is living his best life. He is daily growing out new tail fins, gaining iridescent rose-gold shimmery loveliness, and most importantly, he knows it! He is swimming around like a king, occasionally going up to the edges and flaring at Simon and then swimming away.
They all have this potential, every sad, listless pale little fishie in the cups at the pet stores. We have to stop the way these beautiful, sentient, smart little creatures are bred and sold commercially.
Anyway, ‘nuff said. Attached are a before pic and some more recent ones of him having a great time!
