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?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Nice of you to do ...The new Mother Teresa for fish...i have brought in stray dogs, covered with mange, from the street and treated and kept them. So why not fish?

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

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 :(
