Unhappy I couldn't leave him there....

We have a new addition. I was at Wal-Mart picking up some stuff and decided to look at the fish. I was not planning on getting another at the moment but I saw this little sick guy I felt so bad for him. Actually all of them are sick and they were in horrible conditions. Their water was dirty, cloudy, reddish, and very gross. I was very upset with the conditions. We left and I could not get the fish out of my head so I had to go back. I took one of the sicker ones to try and save him. I think he has swim bladder and he has a problem swimming around. He is very cute and very small. I just couldn’t leave him there… I wanted to take them all but I couldn’t of course. There were dead fish all over and I complained to two different people because it was disgusting and someone needs to take care of those poor fish. I was angry with that store.

Here is my sick lil guy. He needs a name…










Looks like he wants to give a kiss:

Well his body and fins seem healthy but he is not very active and he swims all weird. He kind of floats to the top and his back seems a little curved or something. He sometimes lays on his side at the bottom but most of the time he floats his head at the top so he can get air. He seems very weak. I am pretty sure it is swim bladder. He did flare for me so that is a good sign right?
