I took pics when he was sick but I couldn't post them. It made me too sad. Now that's he's better I can share his recovery too.
I said in another thread, he's still really thin and I know this. I don't know if he'll ever be the buff man he once was but I'm okay with that. He's not as thin as he was by a long shot.
He's happy and active and he's eating 4-6 bloodworms a day. So I'll claim victory and ignore his old man hump. :P
Sick old dude. He stayed on that heater mostly the whole time. He couldn't eat, he couldn't swim to the bottom. He was just hanging on to life. I really thought I was gonna lose him:
Sick, skinny, old dude on the second day of Kanaplex, springing back to life. You can see by his back hump how thin he'd gotten. I actually thought he had dropsy cause his thin-ness was making his back scales stick up:
Tango today, hoping for food and cruising. His tail is growing in all curly. His back is rounding out again slowly. He's still very transparent. I'm thinking of putting him on Mysis shrimp for a couple days a week to fatten him up. Any thoughts?
Closeup of cute curly tail regrowth. I miss the long tail but the curling is kinda cute. He doesn't really care either way. He likes an unbaffled filter now so it's probably better that it's short.
This choked me all up. I love my Tango.
