Difference of a Day

I got this little guy from Petsmart last night around 5:30pm. Less than 24hrs later, he's got color coming back to his fins, the stress lines are gone and he's eating like a champ.

Last night, 8:45 pm:


This afternoon, 2:45 pm:


Anyone have suggestion for names?

I like his colors, I would name him a deep sea name like minnow or sharkie, something to do with sea.

Wow. It's crazy how a little TLC and clean water can do! He's a looker, can't wait to see what he looks like when his tail is back to normal.
As for a name, I think he looks like and Eliott or a Chuck.

What a little cutie, glad you took this little guy home. He needs some love and I'm sure he will get it from you :)

It's wonderful that he went to someone who would take good care of him; he looks so improved. n_n (Sorry, I don't have any name suggestions~)

Wow, he looks a lot better! I liked the suggestion for Bruno but I also like Simon. Or maybe Dovahkiin...

Him this morning, shortly after I woke him up:


He actually is a little redder than it shows, but my camera isn't so good so I'm chalking it up to that.

He's much more active and he's such a character--it took 10 attempts to get that one picture, LOL! He swims quite fast, begs for food, and loves to hang out inside the cichlid stone. He really makes me smile, and particularly over the last few days, which I've needed, and I'm trying to find a way to keep him with me since I'll be making a move in the dead of winter. Unfortunately I have to rehome some of my scalekids (nervous about getting them from NY to FL alive, parents own the condo I'll be living in and they requested I downsize the number of pets, etc), but I'm trying to keep 2 since I've been allowed my 10 gallon and I'm hoping he can be one of the 2.

Those were all great name suggestions! I'm leaning a little toward Simon but a friend suggested Gabriel after the Archangel from Supernatural. I'm calling him Troublemaker for now.

:D If you're anything like me it won't matter what you name him because I always have about 2 or 3 nicknames for all my pets and they always end up being called them anyways =P
