I think I'm going to find a way to take him on the plane with me to Chicago this weekend. With a close call like this, I am afraid to leave him with my mom to watch for a month.
Also, he has started flaring at his neighbor, Whisper. He wasn't showing off much, but the fact he has the strength to flare his gills is amazing. What else is amazing is that those same gills that were in so much pain yesterday can now be flared. I have had the two of them out of sight of each other with a blind, but since he was showing movement again I wanted to see what he would do. I'm so happy my trooper is pulling through. He's a fighter, that's for sure!
