Well Oz was shipped out to his forever home on Tuesday and arrived safe and sound yesterday!! Which I am so so happy about, shipping fish always gives me a minor panic attack! In 8 years of shipping I've only had 2 DOA's but I still get nervous every single time I drop a fish off at that post office, and I swear I don't breathe right until I get word that they arrived safely!
Boomer will hopefully be going to his forever home this weekend, I have to say I'm going to miss him very much, he's made some of the fastest and most dramatic progress of any rescue I've ever had!
Here's one last before and after shot of him!
The girls tank had a minor outbreak of Ick, but they are fine now, my fault I wasn't being careful about the amount of fish I was adding and I think I added to many too fast and they all got a little bit stressed out!
We have a new addition to the rescue, an adorable little boy that I have named Charlie (after my favorite character in Lost lol) He was found at Petsmart suffering from fin rot and extreme emaciation, he was just skin and bones, the poor little man! He's already doing so so much better, he's eating, he's already put on weight, he's flaring at lemon in the tank next door and he's gained a lot of color! He's going to be one beautiful fish when he's all better!
