Yea...I actually floated him when I dosed the water. He is a weirdo. He actually likes going into his cup haha.. Then resists getting out of it. I really hope he makes it through well, because he is so strange in a good way! He is happy when out of it but it's like trying to get a toddler out of the bathtub hahaha

My EE is a strange little fella, he's so odd. He's playful ad cheeky and he likes human contact, he always greets me when I come by and he hates suction caps. <<

Your boy sounds strong and adorable, he'll make it through.

Thanks guys!! I hate worrying but I know he will come out OK even if he loses an eye..but lets think positive. He is currently having a staring contest with my bearded dragon, Agent13 haha.
On another note I'm wondering as I'm looking at him at putting things together.. tell me what you think
1. He was at the store for a long time
2. His ventral fins are both curled at the ends which makes me think he was in cramped conditions for a LONG time.
3. The Petco he is from didn't have an awesome fish guy(has a bachelors degree in this field) till 3 months ago(and I suspect this fish may have been there possibly longer then that.)

Does this all start sounding like more likely bacterial infection/exposure from long term bad improper care? This is speculation and I obviously don't expect more then an educated guess from you guys either....??

Sitting in his own filth for that long? Might just be bacterial.
