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!!
