I was at the pet store today to pick up something for my cat and, naturally, check out their fish (just because! we're all guilty)
Anyhow, I don't even know why I ended up looking at this tank of zebra and leopard danios, I had no intention on getting any for my tank. Buuut, as fate would have it, one little fella caught my eye- a hunchback. He's a bit more bent than the two posted in this forum but seems healthy as ever and oh-my-goodness spunky! He swims around great, keeps up with everyone else in the tank (I got two other danios to keep him company) and is ravenous as any other. Watching his funny, quick, wiggly swim made me laugh so much I HAD to take him home! (assuming it's a male, we shall see, Quasimodo all the same)

It's only been a few hours since I've gotten the lil hunchback, so I'll be back to update eventually =) Hopefully with pictures

oh, an aside on the lil Quasimodo:

I realize the possibilities of TB and diet issues and a couple other potential diseases. I am extremely cautious about the fish I buy after a few bad experiences. I watch the fish I want for a long time at the store beforehand, I check out the other fish they are with, anything in the tank, even at my usual and very trustworthy fish store, it's a process.

My Quasimodo is extremely vibrant and active, as any normal danio, and has no physical signs of diseases or parasites. The other fish don't mind the lil guy either, no serious survival or territorial issues are going on.

I have a really carefully varied and balanced diet for my fish so I know everyone's dietary requirements are well met. My fish are seriously spoiled.

I'm interested to see how things go.
