So I've had an open spot in my 10 gallon divided 3 ways for a couple of weeks now. I was planning on waiting a while before getting another male because I do not have a safe way to heat a quarantine tank. But I saw this guy at walmart. I tried to talk myself out of buying him buy saying that one of his gills looked like it was sticking out too far, and that I didn't have any way to heat him. But as I walked away, I just felt so bad. He was the only male left, and even though he looked cold, he still had energy. I went back and forth on whether I could actually leave him there, and finally decided that I couldn't.
I even held him close as we checked out because it was cold. He's nothing special, and probably not an awesome find, but for some reason I was drawn to him. His name is Oliver.
So what do you think? He's floating in his section of the tank, and he's already getting worked up over his neighbors. I'll have to add some plants.
