Got my AB fishy today...

And he's looking a bit rough.. :(
I got him from Blimp33 and they seem to be highly recommended, as well as the transhipper hopdiggity, so I'm just going to assume he didn't take well to shipping.

His dorsal fin looks a bit rotted and his colors are nothing like what his picture showed. I'm hoping it's temporary and that I can perk him back up after acclimating him to his new forever-home.

Pics later when he's feeling better. Wish me (and him) luck please? :( Any tips for perking him up would be great. I've got just about all imaginable foods, water treatments and other stuff so please let me know if you have any ideas.

It's pretty common for HM's to munch on their fins while in transit. He's probably lost a little color do to stress, he should color up soon.
