Am I a softie?

Here we go again. When will I ever learn. I bought a new male blue ram. He was very thin and seems being bullied to death by other rams. He's now under my care.

I tend to become a softie(am I? )when it comes to fish kept in poor conditions.

Others were 4 black angels with tattered fins and one discus who suffered heavily from hexamita. Those are now ok after being under my care. Maybe I could be a fish nurse or am I soft in the head?

Correction. If you are referring to the same gender, it's St. Martin de Porres.

Now I'm confused as to which one of the 2 saints are we referring about.
Never mind.

St Francis associated with animals, so is St Ignatius (often depicted with a wolf) for St Patrrick special mass where people bring their pets to church.

But, yes, you are a good person, Blue, to take in the sick fish :) At the pet store i work at, i have seen a few fish that are missing an eye I have a one-eyed blue gourami that I 'rescued' from the store, but today saw a small, fan tailed goldfish with one eye, a black moor with one eye, and a dwarf gourami with one eye. I guess i can't save them all, though i doubt anyone will want to pay for a fish like that :(
