Show me your RESCUES!

On this thread Please post your rescue pictures before and after recovery! This thread is not to replace the emergency treatment thread, but to only share successes. Also, please let us know your treatment for the rescue if any.

I will start with my two: Mr. Greenjeans and Red. Mr. Greenjeans was obtained for free from Petsmart on 8-4-12 in deplorable condition. Mr. Red was given to me by the Petsmart manager in September, because they could not do anything more for him -- all he could to is float at the top.

Mr. Greenjeans was treated with time and clean water. Mr. Red with just time and shallow water. He nows has a full one gallon tank soon to move into a 3 gal.

Rescues sometimes work!

Wow, great rescues! Good job! My rescue is crush<3 i got him from walmart. He had severe swim bladder and swam alot like red was in that pic. I gave him epsom salt treatment for 3 days, then his swim bladder was cured! Next was the fin rot. It wasnt too nad at first. Just some aq salt and he seemed fine. But then it started spreading , and i needed to medicate. Now crush is happy and healthy! His fins are growing back and he is now a very "unique" color. But we love him:

Magkiarp wasn't in as bad of shape of some of the other rescues on here, but he was the colorless short finned guy with lots of poo and debris in his tank.. He kind of floated toward the top of his aquarium the first few days that I had him, and he didn't have any interest in food.. I was worried he wouldn't make it.. but then wham! He was healthy and happy!

back in 1/14/12:



Most recent pic I have of him:
