So It was 2 am and I could not sleep. I decided to do some grocery shopping and I couldn't help but walk by the fish section. There was one female who was in maybe an inch of water with clamped fins and sad eyes. I can normally prevent myself from impulse fish buying...but it was 2 in the morning lol. Of course I just had to buy her and I named her Jillian.
She is very big, much bigger than any female I have seen being sold in stores. Her body is a little bigger than my full grown DT males. She has black spots like a dalmation. I have been wondering if she could be a plakat maybe? She was labeld as VT but im still not sure. She also has much longer ventrals than I have ever seen on a female.
I tested the water of the cup she came in and the ammonia was at 8 PPM!! I could not belive it! It actually may have been higher than 8 (if that is even possible) The color in the test tube was a navy blue almost black. I can't belive she is compleatly fine, not even a trace of fin rot. I can't belive the employee's there think its perfectly ok for them to have just an inch of water to swim in. I am glad I got Jillian out of that cup.
