Goodbye Rescue Fishy

This unnamed fish lived for nearly 7 months after I rescued him from PetSmart, blind, starved, and infected with a fungus. He finally succumbed to dropsy this evening, but he fought for his life for a long time. After his rescue his fungal infection was cured within a month and his sight was regained in one eye, allowing him to eat and interact like any normal fish. His fins never did fully relax or grow back, but boy did he fight for his life. I learned so much from him.

SIP fishy.

Yes, thank you for giving love to a fish that most people would have ignored. What a sad, sad beginning, but a beautiful and touching end to his story!
