Tell me about it. I agree with you so much. Some petstores are disgusting places.

Getting him to eat is a struggle, but he is eating a little bit. Right now the plan is to fatten him up, heal his fins, and send him off to logisticsguy.

Glad you rescued him! I once bought a fish missing most of its caudal as well, but he unfortunately died five days later of a horrid bacterial infection that he gained from his cup. :(

I remember tesla. That was a sad story but he had a nice last few days.

Hopefully this boy doesn't get any worse.

I got him to eat a nice amount of nls grow tonight!

Congrats Matt. Glad you rescued him good luck.

And just a quick question, I have to leave for family vacation this summer. Do you think the fry could handle a shaky car ride to my uncles?

If you package them correctly, keep the temp stable, and keep it from bouncing around then it should be fine.

How should I package it? Put a blanket underneath and around it? Or use like a bit if the thermal wrap I have from CJ?

You need to get in into another container... A box or something... Then stuff it with blankets so it doesn't shift around.
