Talking Road to recovery! Good news!!

Yes, for once I can happily report that the little guy we bought a few weeks ago at Petco with his fungus and clamped fins is now back in action! I followed the advice and QT'ed him in AQ salt with daily water changes and a few days ago we saw him fit to go into his new home finally. Since then he has been swimming around carefree and enjoying his new surroundings. No more nasty little QT container for him! He spends his day swimming around and I catch him entertaining himself at the micro bubbler catching bubbles as they come out. Don't ask, my wife and I think he may have a screw loose. He spends hours doing that..

Anyhow, before and after. When we bought him he had a nasty fungus, hole-in-the-head and he also had a tear in his caudal fin that went all the way to the base. As you can see it is healing quite well now and hopefully it will mend completely but only time will tell.

We named him Polo.. he was a buddy for poor Marco who passed away recently.
