About three weeks ago I rescued a blind male spade-tailed plakat from Petsmart. He had a few deformed fins, but I wonderful personality. I am so glad I begged my mom to let me take him home :)
However just a week after I brought him home, he got himself stuck in one of the tiny draining holes in a flower pot in his tank. :O He was so firmly stuck that when I lifted the pot out of the water, hoping he would just slip out that you could hear his head and tail flapping against the pot. :'( I had to get my mom to use both hand and pry him out of the pot.... I now realize it was a bad idea to have a flower pot with tiny holes in it in a tank for a blind fish....
His injuries were really bad, the scales on his gill flaps and the top of his body were scraped clean off and bleeding a little. :( The first 1/8 of his anal fin was ripped off too :(.... It really broke my heart to see this little guy like that :(
Now he's almost complete healed! :D
