I did a Wal-Mart rescue today. She was the last female betta and she is a crown tail. Her color is faded and she has a touch of fin rot. SIGH, I couldn't bear the thought of some 6 year old getting her and killing her right off the bat. So now she is in the critter carrier that Lila was in. Lila is now with Spike. I am going to try to treat her without meds because it isn't that bad. I am using a little aquarium salt and some stress coat. She eats well so I am not worried yet. I think she should perk up soon.

I was in Petco over the weekend and aaaaaaaalllllllmost came home with a veil tail boy with pretty bad fin and tail rot. My boyfriend said the same thing - why would you want to bring home a fish you KNOW is sick?! But I felt so bad for him. Either someone will buy him who doesn't know any better and he will get no treatment. Or he will get no treatment and die in his cup.

Dang, maybe I'll go back and look for him tomorrow now that I'm thinking about him again...

I'm right there with ya! lol That's a lucky little girl you got there, I hope she does well.

Great job! I applaud rescuing sick bettas - we know most people will just look them over and the pet store staff will more likely shove them to the back out of sight to die than treat them. We'll be back in the rescue betta biz again after some new otos go thru quarantine, now that we replaced the old hospital tank that had a potential fish tb betta that we tried to rescue in it.
