Question New Boy!! :D

Here's my new baby!!! He was my brother's fish for 6 months. These 6 months have not been kind to him. My brother FINALLY gave him to me today, and I set him up with a 3 gallon tank, heater and decent decorations (ok, so not decent. It was the best I could do on short notice!). But when he did have him, he got really bad fin-rot and now he looks like a plakat crowntail. He's still really fiery, but he doesn't look good. Do you think his fins will EVER grow back??? I don't think he has fin-rot any more, but I will add aquarium salt just to be sure.

I don't know what to call him, though!!! Any ideas???

awww good for you for taking him & helping him get better :) I think his fins will grow back, it will take time though. The name Slater or Snape just popped into my head. lol

Thanks, but he's not that pretty. He was once, but I really don't care. He's got a great personality, and thats why I LOVE him!!

Awwe, glad you saved him =]

I love the name Bo, but I have always liked the spelling Beau. Because it's like Beautiful. lol.

So, he's actually Blue. And he's got a bit of red at the base of his fins, but that might just be the fin-rot. I named him Bo, I was thinking about Beau, but it sounds a lot like a girl's name. Because it looks like Beautiful, you see?
