  • ugh... had too

    So I been searching for a wire brush long enough to clean my tubing... couldn't find anything in the length I was looking for... nothing at home depot, Lowes, Walmart, PetSmart, LFS...well nothing long enough... So of course I have to look at the fishes... DANG IT, There was a baby angel with no dorsal fin well a nub, no anal fin well another nub, ventral fins in half and tail fin over half gone... and only half his pectoral fin... pure black but the current in the tank is whaling him around BUT...You see him fighting.... I felt terrible....I had to give this little fighter MORE of a fighting chance, I asked the lady how much so she got the manager... she said 2 bucks, I said no way, how about one.... it isn't like anyone else ius going to buy him and I need to give him a fighting chance... they took my 1 dollar offer and made sure that this angel will not be covered under store policy... I had to laugh about it over a dollar...

    Please pray this "little fighter" makes it...

        I like that name! Plus he looks like a spear tip or something. Can't beat the price, hope he works out well for you.

            If he is healthy enough to fight, he will need lots of garlic, vitamins and pristine water conditions aka very low nitrogen.

            Is he isolated? If not get some egg crate or move him to his own tank. Any stress will do him in with his weakened state.

            I would also treat him with antibiotics.

            Best of luck!

              Do you have any Indian almond leaves? They can help him heal his fins if there is a change to repair then and the tannins would help boost his immune system!

                From what I heard he has been alive for a week this way BUT I really dont believe it... I have him in a QT tank with 2 other angels... 1 DG, 5 guppies, and a goldfish... I need more tanks... I haven't set up the 40 or the 125 yet BUT I just picked up the 40

                Errrr... bummer, poor little guy didn't make it... at least he didn't die at the pet store and left stuck to the filter all night

                      It was a long shot... but no matter what I hope he/she knew that someone cared.
