The most AMAZING thing!

On Wednesday, March 30th, I went to pick up a beutiful betta. His name is Finnegan, and he is a red plakat/humpback. I was so attached to him, but soon tragedy struck.
On Thursday, March 31st, I went to a dentist appointment. When I came back, he was GONE. He wasn't in the tank, and he wasn't on the floor anywhere. I had pretty much given up hope, but on April 4th, today, my friend came over to help me look.
We looked in the filter, and sure enough; there he was.
We took him outside and put him on the deck, preparing to bury the grave. Suddenly, he flipped. My friend shouted HE'S ALIVE!
Sure enough, he was alive. We took him back to the tank, where he has settled in perfectly. He was trapped in a filter for four days, and now he is in very good health, considering what he had been through.

Just wanted to share the miracle :p

Wow that's great! I lost my first fish to the filter intake, you're so lucky he made it! That must have been quite an ordeal for him, does he have any injuries?
