I'm such a sucker!
Oh, so, first, Charmy's doing great, the little brat. He and his tankmate both decided it would be awesome to eat the sinking algae wafer pieces I put in for the snails. Brats.
His fins are growing in nicely, and he may yet prove to be a crowntail!
But on the why I'm a sucker...
I picked up two new rescues today.
Gyarados is a gorgeous turquoise DeT. I had seen him at Petco a while ago, and let the staff know about him. They pulled him to keep an eye on him, and today I got him for half-price because... he's blind!
And I also got Finneon. He's a royal blue CT. He's in bad shape. He's laying on his side, he's flopping around, every so often he does barrel rolls. It'd be cute if it wasn't so worrying. I'm not sure he's going to make it through the night. The manager gave him to me for free, since she knows how hard I try for them.
Gyarados is still in his cup, waiting for his 1.7g KK (NPT) to de-cloudify. He's in good shape, just special needs. As much as I hate keeping him in the cup longer, I want to water in his tank to settle before he goes in, so he might stay in there overnight. I'll wrap it in a towel if I have to leave him there.
Finneon is in a 0.75g KK, no decor, approximately half-full. I'm slowly switching out the water to 1tsp/g epsom salt. Everybody is conditioned with Prime and Stress Coat+.
If he doesn't make it, then I know that he was warm and clean for his last night. If he does, then he's a fighter, and I think I might have a chance!
