Sorry about Oto. I think you should rename Fred to Jaws.

I know what you mean. Think of something to make it seem less sad. Or just have your freind come over and spazz at that fish for being a . . . you get the picture.

He seems to be doing just fine. His mouth isn't quite closed yet, but it's only open a little bit. We've decided to call him Tenacious Fred the Undead...

I LOVE his newly expanded name, and am SO happy to hear that he's doing better!!! Is he eating and behaving normally? Coloration good? Any signs of redness/swelling/infection?

Be on the lookout for a possible damage shed... the issue was on the inside of his mouth, so you may not see one, but he also spent some time out of the water and hopping onto the floor, so he may need to refresh. Just a warning, as when they do a forced shed, it tends to be a bit more . . . dramatic . . . than when they shed skin that is already due to come off - and that's violent enough!

Sounds like he's recovering perfectly, I'm so happy! I'd continue to keep things as stress-free as possible for a few more days - just to be safe :)
