finally got the tank for my resuce

someone brought him to where i work, said take him or we're gonna have to flush him. so i took him home.
he was in here for a few days.



welcome to your new home charles.

its a bit open but its heated and filtered.


hes a bit stressed out but if he made it in the vase thing he'll do fine in there. just need to buy some decor.


last picture...... for now.

I just recently did the EXACT same thing..someone brought in a fish, and basically said the same thing, take it, or I will flush it..and My rescue, was a wedding present, originally in a (Wine glass) then they transferred him to a VASE..with broken glass pieces.. and I put him in a Kritter Keeper, to give him a AQ salt treatment for fin rot..and then moved him into his new tank, as soon as I saw he was ready to get to swimming, and he is doing amazingly well..I am even surprized, My happy lil Sapphire..Blue VT!!!

Luxury digs compared to his former ones, I bet. I'm sure you have items in mind, but given that he's probably older, one of those hammocks (either the craft mesh if you are handy or the leaf hammock if you have three bucks) or the floating log would let him have a spot to hang out in/on that's near the surface.

He does have some long fins, doesn't he!

we sell those hammock leaves at work. ill buy him one. i was thinking of just buying fake plants and giving him some places to hide behind so he isnt being stared down by my dog all day haha.

i was thinking the more natural looking set up. plants and a cave or something like that. not a sunken ship or skull.

and his fins are pretty long. thats why i thought it was such a bummer when the lady said they would flush it because i assumed it was on the older side.
