Shiloh's great recovery (finally got a pic!!!)

First four pictures, are the pictures from the day I got him.

He had two gashes on his face plate, missing chunks of his beard, missing scales, fins, and over all a mess! I chose Reggie, before him... Then couldn't forget this little guy. I went back and sure enough in the dirty bowl he was still there! He had been in a tank before.... but with aggressive fish (I forget which...but either gourami or cichlids....).
He still can only half-flare, but better than before. He had more problems... Ich, which we fought off, and tail biting! He does not like small spaces. He ha his 20 gallon, and recently a fancy long finned guppy male joined him... And they're buddies! They scavenge the rocks for food together!

Last picture, is Shiloh now. his fins won't grow any more, but he is healthy, active, and beautiful a wonderful purple boy! I will add more pictures, if...he'll...just...stay...still!!

OMG why is the multi's that suffer? He looks like my Ludendorff! Ludey and I also went through months of treatment and healing, his tail was melted rather than chewed and it's growing back with a kink in it. Great job though, fishy is very pleased by the looks of the pics <3

haha when I first got him, I sat down before putting him in a tank of any sorts... and he was watching tv with me o_O He jumps for food, he goes nuts when someone looks at him, he's generally a happy fish :3 And I have no idea!! I never knew he had orange in him but he does. purple, red, orange... x.x Whatever attacked him though, left some nasty wounds. But, they are healed. I wonder if I could exercise that face plate by getting him into sessions of flaring..?
