My New addition

Meet Miles, I went to Petsmart Friday night looking for a rescue and they had so many pretty guys and gals but this guy just called my name. He was very sad looking. I wish I had taken a pic of him in his cup. He was so pale. His body and tail was white and the tail had just the dark outline around the edge. I had no idea he could color up so fast. Friday night after prepping his tank and getting him situated I noticed he had some trouble swimming. Almost like he had a bad swim bladder. We could not really swim at all he would more like float and them fall over on his side. He was really struggling. I figured he would not make it through the weekend but everyday he has gotten better and man is he pretty. He doesn't do so well with the filter on so I have kept it off the last 2 days and he has been even more active. This morning he had bulit a bubble nest overnight so I will take it as a sign he likes his new home.

Well introducing Miles

Thanks ya'll. I will try to get a better pic. I took these at 6am before I headed to work today. I need to clean the outside of the tank so I can get a better one. I will update the pics as soon as I can.

nice, I think he's doing great in there :), he's a DTHM, so it's already quite hard for him to swim as fast as...for example a PK, so if u're going to use a filter, it will be easier for him if it flows mild current. You can also try to modify your filter if it's too strong for him, cover like half of the "intake" or all of it then make small holes on the coverage, to make the current milder :)

Thank you! I really enjoy watching him change everyday, I look forward to going downstairs in the morning and "waking" him up before I go to work. He is the 1st fish / tank I have been "allowed" to put downstairs so I am proud of that. He must be pretty for that to happen!
