So today we went to the store to find some plants for Tauro's tank... And... Well..... You can see where this is going...
They had too many fish for the amount of tiny jars and so 5 or so fish were being kept in plastic containers less than 5cm deep. Their fins were sticking out of the water.. It was disgusting. We told the girl working there that it was unacceptable and she gave them some new water. Not ideal but better than nothing.
The 5 fish looked healthy but sad, so I had an idea.. There was one boy in a cup that I had my heart set on, so I asked the girl to bag him up an give one of the 5 his cup.
I wish I could have done more, the 5 boys were placed behind some products so people wouldn't see them..
Maybe we'll take some jars in tomorrow and tell them to give the other 4 some more space..
Anyway, this is my new boy. He's yet to be named and totally open to suggestions! He's living in a 6g tank next to Tauro's with a piece of paper inbetween because they were determined to smash glass to get at eachother! :P
He's super friendly and not nearly as afraid of me as Tauro was initially. I love him, even though he's a bit scruffy looking :)
