What is it about these little fish that capture your heart with one look? My will power has been strong, but maybe it was the spirit of Thanksgiving that told me, take this one home, he's got so much spunk and hope left. I can't let them take it away... By them I mean whoever was in charge of Meijer's fish....
I must say, I was never into crowntails much, but the colors, I've never seen one quite like him. And that face.. The pout of those lips... He was mine the instant I saw him :) I dubbed him Nimbus, since he has a sort of cloud like look to him, though and if anyone wants to confirm, I suspect he's a marble which is exciting. I've had one other and his change was crazyyyyy
But enough chat.. Pix! Oh but first his ammonia level in his cup was between 4.0-8.0
In his cup, he was pretty bloated with lots of food/poo at the bottom
And into his hospital 'tank' being as I'm treating with aqsalt to help with what looks like either a wound or infection near his head... This pic is also most color accurate, he's like pastelish or powder blue with salmony pink/orange tips
And the lips ;)
And before anyone says anything, yes its not heated. I have no heaters small enough, however he's in my reptile room that's kept nice and toasty. He's very active and also not shy at all. Swims right up to me and watches me in the room. Such a cute little bugger, he'll move into a heated critter keeper after his salt treatment finishes and his injury/infection clears up
