New Fish Mikey Shipped Me From NJ

It took a few days to get the video and photos uploaded, but here they are as promised. This is the fish I bought from Mikey's store in New Jersey and he shipped to me. There was a little snag with the shipping and for some reason it took a day longer than it was supposed to, but he is here safe and sound. I think he may have been a little bit traumatized by the ordeal because he's bottom sitting a little bit. I have put 0.1% salt in and am monitoring it, and if it doesn't get better I'll start a D&D thread... but, in the meantime, here he is and I think he's beautiful!

Thanks Mandy! :)

 

Oh, I should mention, I don't think the trauma had anything to do with Mikey's packaging. He did a super job! The bag didn't even lose any air. :) I think the sort center where the express packages come into my area may have some issues. This was the second express package I had arrive late in two months. :(



So pretty.

 

Thank you :)

:wub: I hope the bottom sitting stops! Poor baby! What's his temp at? I would get it to 78-80 if not already there. :) he was in roughly 82-84 degree temperature all his life at my co workers :o Edited by Mikey

I have a heater on there that is set to 79. He may not be used to that yet as it's a bit cooler than he's used to. Unfortunately, that is the only temp the heater runs at.

He seems to be perking up a bit this evening. Maybe he just had to adjust a bit. Right now he's swimming around up off the bottom. This is the first time since he arrived. This is good news!



Awesome! He will grow out beautifully! [emoji813] hope those black stripes stay put. :teehee

 

Me too! They look really cool.
