He looks more like a plakat than a halfmoon right now, but I already see new growth coming in. It just takes time.

Also, if the guppy is on his own you won't have to worry about his food being stolen.. you can try feeding him a high-protein diet to help spur growth.


edit; Cool! I live up in Kent.. my dad used to drive down to New Britain when he worked for CL&P.

On no what did you do?! Did you have to use tweezers? I would have panicked it that situation. SO glad you were able to save him, he has a great "mom" lol.
