Smile Another Rescue Fishy In The HOUSE..I just Had to Help HIM..

Now I need to Identify him, he is huge, actually in very good spirits.. and his name is Crimson.. well take a look ..here he is.. And here is his story..My daughter who attends the local YMCA has a 55 gallon Aquarium, that has not been taken care of for the past 2-3 weeks, and I started noticing the green water, you could not see any fish, so I walked over to take a closer look and I saw not 1 not 2 not 3 but 4 betta's and a goldfish with popeye, and a lobster with only 1 claw..and I was horrified, heater was not working, thermometer broken, and I'm sure the filter was broken.. so with all this going on, I complained to mangers, and staff that works there, and this is going to make you laugh or peeve you off, "They spoke to the Aquarium Specialists" and said "Until you cannot see the back of the tank, the water, and the fish are fine" Who the heck are these "Specialists"

Wow..so with that I decided to help a special fish in that tank, I know they have not been getting fed, so I started to come in with pellets for the bettas, and mind you there were some males, and females, but there was this one, that always came to the top and followed my finger, and would respond to me when I come to see him, so I decided to make him mine..No one will be looking after the rest of the fish in this tank, and I just had to save at least one..This one..

He's now in his salt bath for Fin shred, because he was getting nipped ~ but he is for the most part doing well, and I am just dying to see his full finnage come back, so I am trying to figure out, What is he?? HM? or VT?

So, If anyone can help me out, you can see where all the fins are gone, but he still has great color, and long ventrals..

He's gorgeous, even with no tail!

All I can picture is you scooping him out of the tank and putting him in your purse, ha ha ha....

Good for you for saving him :D

And those aquarium specialists need someone to "specialize" them upside the head.

I'm aghast at "Aquarium Specialists"!! I do not know a single fishkeeper who would condone that type of tank. You are a dear for "stealing" their fish. He does seem like a beautiful red veiltail. His fins look like they are growing back very nicely!
