Rescues

Well I swore to myself I wouldn't get anymore fish till after christmas, my parents are getting me another 10 gallon, and when I did I'd make sure they were ones that really called out to me......

Well today I desided to check out the local Pet Supermarket and Petco, HUGE MISTAKE. The Pet Supermarket is terrible. The water in all the cups was yellow and just disgusting and it was just terrible. My friend and i took three of them, two in really nasty water and one that had been randomly dumped in one of the community tanks who's fins were torn. The guy that netted the one told me I could put two females and a male together O.O. We got out of there as quickly as possable.

Here's what the cups looked like

On a much more positive note I absolutely love my local Petco. All the cups were crystal clear, the fish looked great and the employees are amazing. I found a gorgeous purple veiltail boy and when I picked up his cup it was dripping and cracked in several places. I took it over to the sink and figured if I couldn't find anyone I'd change it myself. My aunt found a female employee and informed her and she thanked us for letting her know and headed straight over to change it. It was great, I wanted to hug her for actually caring.

Congrats on your new rescues, those poor fish were kept in such awful conditions!!! I expect that they are much happier now

Wow. I think they are going to end up looking gorgeous. It's horrible how nasty their cups are. Keep us posted on their recovery :)

The other one is doing quite well. He's very active, eating well and his color looks amazing. I've named him Necrofrigian or "Necro" for short
