That is an incredibly sad yet happy in the end story! From the way your family treated that fish when you left, it sounds like you had very good reason to get the heck out of there. I'm so glad you were able to save your fish in the end! I hope he manages to live a long happy life!

He will live the happiest life I can give him. My goal is a hightech super dense planted tank. I'm thinking about building my own leds for lighting.


Here's more pictures!
Happy nester

I wonder how shiny he will become

Glad you went back and saved your baby :) Don't beat yourself up for what happened - there's no way to change the past! The little guy is safe now, and that's what's important.

I love his tank, it's adorable, and he looks to be in very good spirits! :)

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Here is my start up plant list, that I will probably be ordering this friday or so.
-Anubias Nana http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...815&pcatid=815
-Cardinal Plant Lobelia Cardinalis "Dwarf" http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...18&pcatid=3118
-Hygrophila Hygrophila Corymbosa http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...19&pcatid=1619
-Broad Ludwigia Ludwigia Repens http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...16&pcatid=1616
-Ludwigia Peruensis Ludwigia Glandulosa http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...59&pcatid=2959

Was also considering upgrading to this set up http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...m?pcatid=23677 and move him to the kitchen in the corner of the counter. It's under cabinets so it's not much use kitchen wise and I can mount a LED set up to the bottom of the cabinet.

If I don't get that set up then I will be ordering the Fluval Pressurized CO2 20 Kit http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...m?pcatid=23680
Thoughts?
