Poor little dude ....

I saw this pretty black boy at my LFS, and the thought of just walking away from him was too much. He's all bloaty and is floating around .... I'm going to fast him for a few days to see if it helps, and then feed him some brine shrimp and daphnia for some fibre.

If he has a permanent SBD problem I'm going to get him a shallow bin tank and some fake plants and stones to make him as comfy as possible.





I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that he gets better .... Wish him luck!

Aww, he's a pretty guy! Reminds me of the ocean at night. :)
Good to hear he's swimming somewhat normally now too.

His ventral fins are beautiful! Reminds me of the lines of reflection of the moon on water.
I'd call him either luna or nox (moon or night in Latin) I have a thing for Latin names

I can't wait either :)
I think his tail is okay, there aren't any signs of fin rot on him. I've decided to call him Kappa.
