UGH! My poor fishy had an accident!! He's still alive.... I was just @ my computer getting ready to change some of his water and I could her a little tink-tink-tink
on the glass.. and I look up to see he's stuck between the glass of the tank and the fake rock.. looked like he was just swimming in the narrow bit in between, and got stuck when it narrowed further.. Anyway he was THRASHING around with his whole little body!!
So I pulled the rock back to free him as fast as a could, and he darts away to the corner, but about 3/4 of the scales on his head have come off!! And they're swirling around like tiny little black dots :( .. so where his head before was all black it now looks almost marbled from where the scales came off. I'm trying to attach a picture, but it doesn't show the damage very well (you can see a bit between his eyes and just above).
Now he's hiding at the back of his tank and does not look good ... I sucked up the scales to get them out of the tank.... But is there anything I can do for him? Do you think he'll be ok? ANY help appreciated.
