    This will be a thread with updates on his progress.

    Hey guys! I was in PetCo getting some fish and at the checkout line one of the employees(she knows me really well) came up and asked if I wanted a betta. Obviously I couldn't turn her down on the offer...
    Here he is!

    He needs a name!

    He has some bad finrot, I'll treat that with lots of clean water. It looks infected so I might use dose a little bettafix(half the suggested amount). He also looks over fed, so I'll fast him tonight and tomorrow.

    Any thoughts are welcome, also, if anyone has any name ideas, let me know:)

    Thanks Bibba! I had to put him in a 1G bowl so I can keep up with water changes, he seems a little sad. I have a spot in my divided tank ready for him when he gets better:)
