He's looking fantastic in your avatar! I would never guess he was ever in bad shape.

Yep, I finally dug up the ol' digicam from the closet and took a few:
1.) Wispy's new tank....unfortunately, I had to ruin his cute little bubbles when I changed all the water this morning (gotta do 100% water changes for him until his permanent home becomes cycled.....I wish my MIL would ask me or let me know ahead of time that she's going to get us a pet.. I hate not being ready). He was very displeased when I removed him from his new home into a smaller kritter keeper during the change.
2.) He's put on a few badly needed ounces....his tummy filled out nicely:
3.) He still needs some more padding around his sides though. At least he lost that angular look:
Thanks for your help & replies everyone! :)
