Well, he eats the flakes regardless so I'll just give her some if she won't let me keep him. I really hope she will though, she doesn't care anyway so why even bother??

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

I sure hope she lets you keep him. I'm sure you've become very attached to him.:)

Unfortunately, he had a bit of a relapse last night. I went to bed happy because I was seeing some real regrowth on his fins, and when I woke up this morning I found that they had disintegrated a bit :( I kind of feared that this would happen because he had finrot when he was in his bowl (he ripped his fins and they got infected, just it didn't move very fast because the water was so cold). I had hoped that just the clean water would do the trick, but apparently the higher temps eventually let the bacteria gain the upper hand. Anyway, I am prepared so I dropped a tablet of fungus clear in right after I discovered it. Maybe I should have added a bit of salt in the first place...I'll have to keep that in mind the next time.

That's a Fish Story. I have a female betta fish, and I'm getting one from my friend. He will be in a 20$ 1.5gallon loke my female. I got a 20gal for x-mas so I'm making that the best that I can.

<--Hehe, that's my puppy, Charlie, before he turned moose. He was attacking his teddy-bear, whom I called Mr.Snuggles, with one true possessed look on his face. Many days later, he ate Mr. Snuggles. RIP Snugg Snugg!

P.S. that's my grandpa's knee in the upper right corner.

Alright, the fungus clear seems to be doing it's job. The edges of his fins are smoothing over and there is a tiny bit of regrowth in certain areas. I can't wait to get rid of the green water, but he does not seem to be affected. He actually blew a large bubblenest overnight :) I am really anxious to see some real regrowth, (and to see his colors again-stupid green water), but I can't do anything at the moment except be patient. I'll post some pictures when there is some real improvement.

Update: His fins are still looking better. I'll post pictures soon. I think his name actually should be something like pirannah because of the way he attacks his food!!

How about Jaws! Haahaa. One of mine, who passed on last year, "attacked" his food like a shark attacking its prey. lol I'm glad he's doing so well.

He's still doing really well. And, today is the day that I can do a water change and add some carbon to get rid of the green water!! Yay. That also means that I can add the new gravel and decorations that I got for Christmas. I didn't want to add them before because the fungus clear stains things green. I'll probably post pictures of him and the tank later once I get it set up. He also blows huge bubble nests every night :) It's so cute.
