That's great if he did. I just didn't want you to think that in most situations he would get the proper care. If you know the animal care manager (he should manage all the animals, not just aquatics) then you probably know what he'll do and the care he can give. But, if you went to a store that you didn't know the people... he'd probably not be treated correctly and likely die as a result. Not from a lack of caring by the employees, but because a lack of knowledge to treat disease (this is a huge problem) and a lack of access to most treatments.
