U can use Kordon fish protector if you have some to heal the bruise.

Ok thank you, I will look into it. I plan on ordering a bunch of medications/remedies for my upcoming rescue-tank anyways.

First bubble nest on 4/22/13 and that's when I knew he was a boy:

Today, love his tail, I think it is called butterfly ?? since the edges are back to "nude" color of the body which is more nude than the reddish pink as shown in real life:


They are rewarding to rescue. I think I will name him Chris Cross.

He is really beautiful! You're lucky you got a male, I really wanted one of my 2 babies to be a male.

Yeah, but I was hoping it to be female for my sorority. He's trained to swim into cup for feeding time. Now I have to start another tank for him only...

I bought another baby the other day.
I've had 6 babies total, only one has died (first and smallest one) and I gave my 3rd away to Skyewillow when I met her the other day and am giving another, my 2nd ever, to a friend who wants to use her for breeding.
I have 3 left that I will keep for the rest of their lives. #1, a female VT (I think, maybe delta) who is a "black" orchid butterfly, but her body is more grey with blue irid. She has some sort of issue where she swims nose up and tail down, but is starting to gain strength now after a month with me. The 2nd is a super red VT male, he's a pretty flirty boy! Already blowing huge nests and trying to flare at the full grown HM in the tank next to him. 3rd is my newest addition, he's a classic Cambodian, pink body red fins, I've only had him for a week and he looks like he may only be about 6-8 weeks, but is most definitely male and I can't wait to watch him grow. I'll try to post pictures soon!

thanks, hope this will be an encouragement to those who like PetCo baby rescue. Not all of them turn out great in terms of looks and some have physical issues (like my Nano) but at least they all have a second chance to live life fully. Just think of the fact that they might be culled since they were not the strongest and fittest babies...
