New Rescue - In BAD Shape!!

Got this poor little man today at petsmart, the water was sooooo dirty that I couldn't even see him unless he was right against the side of the cup. He was on his side in the cup gasping. He is EXTREMELY emaciated, he has white stringy poo which points to either an internal parasite or internal bacterial infection, and he looks deformed though it may be because hes just soooo under weight.

I've named him Holden, I'll keep everyone updated on him as he, hopefully, recovers!

Geez, he looks like he's had a rough time. Good luck with your rescue. If he recovers, he looks like he's going to be a complete stunner. If he doesn't, at least he will be warm and comfortable! Will be watching this thread!

Aaaaw...I'm so glad you took him home. I'm sure he is already on his way to recovery, and feeling better just with clean water.

Holden ate a couple pellets today, he already looks a little better then he did yesterday, he's swimming more and no longer bobs back up to the surface of the water!

He's going to be stunning when he's all back to normal :)
