It's so sad to think how many deaths occur because they aren't looked after in the shops.
Too much suffering and pain 😭😭😭

Glad he's in great hands! Lookin good, Fin!
Look at Fin's face and expressions in the pics. Every time Kevin posts an update with pics, I crack up. Fin is just soooo cute :)

Yeah, I agree. It really breaks my heart. I want to take ALL the sick/weak looking ones home, but I know I can't.

Fins fins are growing

Firstly, the photos you see show a purple hue to his tail. Whilst this is true, in some light it shows up as a metallic teal and it's AMAZING. I will continue to try capture that colour so you can see.

Secondly, check out that fin growth! Whilst he has perfected swimming and balance without the use of fins, it's certainly nice to see them growing.

I use the end of a chopstick to feed him, and even from a distance, when I pick up the chopstick he goes NUTS!!!!!

He's been working on his bubble nest (although he does it covertly...I'm yet to catch him blowing bubbles). He enjoys patrolling the perimeter of his tank and interacting with people. He sleeps on his leaf hammock ❤️

I so bad want to open up the other half of the tank to him to play in, but I need to be patient. I want to see a lot more Fin growth before I put him water where the filter has any pull.
