thanks guys!

And his tank currently has salt and Stress Coat. He's a pig! Eats like crazy lol

How long do you think before I add him to the 10 gallon?

I think 3-5 days after he's fully healthy should be good. He needs to keep most of his strength up since a 10 gallon is pretty big, divided or not.

UPDATE: Banana is definitely swimming around a lot more! His pectoral fins are cute. Instead of a round shape, they're more oval shaped, so they can be seen halfway down his body. He's also still eating a lot, thankfully.

His fins are turning a darker color so fingers crossed he mightt change color x3

The yellow I see just might be an offset white, which means it's possible he's a marble, or he just lost all his color. Time will tell~

its crazy how much they can change with just a little TLC....mine looks alot better than he did when I 1st brought him home and he wasnt even the worst one in the bunch (actually he was one of the better ones cuz I was so new @ fish I was scared to bite off more than I could chew with a sick one) sometimes I feel guilty about not taking a sick one and nursing it back to health but I wouldnt have known the 1st thing to do and probably would have done more harm than good. I applaud those of u who rescue :)

I felt like I needed to get him because when I went to the pet store for Jingles, I actually almost got him, but at that point I basically ruled him off to die soon. Well, little would I know that he would still be there every time I went to the store afterwards. I know the owner doesn't ever think of flushing her fish, nor will she do anything to hurt them. She changes their cup everyday, even thought they are small.

So, when I saw him, I knew he'd probably surprise me. Unfortunately, it was snowing and was windy out and I went to the grocery store after, so he had a bit of a bumpy ride. I'm just happy that Day 1 is over and he's doing much better :)

Day 3 UPDATE: He's unclamping more, his caudal is showing more and more that he's definitely a veiltail.

I've noticed that he likes to surf along the sand on the bottom and doesn't really swim at the top of the tank. However, he is active. Not as active as the others, but active enough for me to know he's okay :)

Fed him 3 Omega pellets so far and he's showing no sign of bloat so I might feed him later. Thinking of doing another water change tomorrow, or should I do one today? He's in the .5 gallon with Stress Coat and some AQ salt.
