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! :)

He is thin isn't he? Poor baby. Well, just keep up the food and he'll start looking better in a week or two :) He's very pretty.
