First platy!

This is Marty my new mickey mouse platy. He was the smallest in the pet store tank and I felt bad cuz I saw he has red gills ( from ammonia I'm guessing ). Figured I'd bring him home to a clean tank so he might get better!

Nice picture of the little guy. He's so lucky to be adopted by you. He was maybe picked on at the shop that you bought him from since he is the smallest.Now he gets a lovely tank to grow up in and cared for.

Aww thanks. I don't know why but I'm noticing that I've been picking the smallest baby fish I find. The guppies I got were some of the smaller ones as well. I guess someone has to love the runts.
