Jack is HOME!!!
 
Jack is home, and he is doing awesome, we were a bit worried at the LFS, cause he was laying on his
side in the holding tank, but I read that they do this when the water temp is to low, as soon as the water in his bag got to the tank temp he preked right up, and when we let him loose he starting exploring right away, I took a vid, I have to edit it, but here are some pics for now..

I would like to take the time to thank everyone, The water levels are where they should be cause of the advice I recieved.

Anyways, here are your pics.. Enjoy, I will post the Youtube link when I get it u/l

This is the tank where they had him, the water temp was way to low.

Vickie, adding a plant we bought, so he would have something to hide behind if needed, we are getting a pirate ship for him, and some other deco's.

And this is the first pic I took after his release, the vid will show him swimming around and exploring, after a bit he took food, which is a very good sigh. he is such a gorgeous fish.

Good luck with the new fish.

As an FYI after watching the video... I would recommend slowly acclimating fish going forward. You should slowly add tank water to the container that the fish is in so the fish can slowly adjust to the difference in water parameters.

Good luck to your daughter and Jack! I love albino Oscars.
