    Two new rescues! Ones in really bad shape!

    Post by MoonShadow on Sun Nov 27, 2011 12:37 pm

    These 2 came in today in our new fish shipment at work! I couldn't just leave them there, so home they came with me!

    This is Tang, he's just gorgeous, really healthy which is surprising considering the bag he was shipped in sprung a leak and when he arrived there was just enough water in the bag to keep him from drying out. I couldn't believe he was alive!! So he came home with me! He's just gorgeous!

    This is Sailor... he's got one of the worst cases of popeye I've ever seen on a betta! The poor thing! The left side of his head is so swollen from the infection that the scales are sticking up... but he is swimming and eating so that makes me happy! Hopefully I can pull him through this!

    well done you for rescuing them. The popeye isnt really that bad, one of my old red bettas was worse than that. 2 doses of treatment and he is swimming like a good one. Bit tatty round the fins but he has been poorly....x

    Sailor Day #3 - on day 3 (yesterday) Sailors eye sort of "popped" and began bleeding. I have him a 100% water change and hopped the eye would drain, I added salt and methalyne blue into the water to help prevent infection. This morning his eye looked a lot better, its 1/2 the size it was when I got him on Tuesday.

    poor sailor Sad that gotta hurt! hope he pulls thru hun, he has slight raising on his head scale by the look of things too, got my fingers crossed!

    Tang looks great compared the bent/clamped fins on getting home, I'm not surprised you've taken a shine to him!

    What Aquatic/pet place are your working in? is it a chain one or small provate place.. would you consider giving us a review?
