okay I just wanted everyone to know I have read all that was posted! ;)
Anhel- I appreciate your concern A LOT for the wellbeing of my fish. I didn't take your reply so harshly. Unfortunately, just because one person is capable of caring for many fish and has a lot going on in life doesn't mean everyone else is able to do that much too (I had this discussion with my boyfriend too the other day, because he is able to do a lot more things than I can handle so he doesn't understand why I can't either)`
I saw someone posted that in the pics my guys looked pretty good. the picture of the green/yellow was soon after I got him so yes, he is quite a bit more raggedy unfortunately :( I feel really guilty that he doesn't look so handsome anymore, but he was fine until a couple months ago when my health issue and other stresses started hitting me really hard. I am TRULY TRULY ashamed of what he is like now compared to a couple months ago. I feel like I am making excuses, but at the same time all my body wants to do right now is lie on the couch for all eternity dealing with stomach pain. I am not having a fun time.
I will post a more accurate pic of both of them today so you can see them in the 100% condition they are in. I can see why Anhel is disappointed at my description of them being "a bit raggedy" and I am ashamed, but I am CLEARLY not capable of even handling their cases of fin rot at this point. and I need to take responsibility for my actions my giving them to a home which CAN treat them like the babies they are.
Believe me, if I take an animal into my home I try to give it the best home possible. I am not the kinda person who gives up on something I love, but I am trying to look at this situation positively. Trying not to look at it as giving up, but giving BETTER for them as a good pet owner should always try to do.
