I should've gotten him a cute neighbor sooner
So the other day, I was complaining about how one of my rescues just wouldn't come around for anything. I would like to recant that statement: Apparently all it took was a pretty girl!
I put Ginger's QT next to Don Quixote's on the computer desk, and WOW! He's eating, swimming, and even had the gumption to flare at my fiance!! lol just last night, he swam and hid when I tried to feed him. Now, he's on -live- brine shrimp, and eating till his belly is nice and round.
I'm going to hazard a guess that judging by his size, he wasn't quite weaned off of live foods yet, and that's why he'd only eat his flakes if they were moving.
I'm quite relieved that he's doing better, and I think that by saving Ginger, I "accidentally" saved him too, finally. ^_^
