I am so glad you saved him!
It really bothers me that so many people think fish are a disposable pet. I have had a few different fish that I nursed back to health. A couple were injured by my turtle one night when he went on a rampage biting the fish in his tank but not eating them (they were bought as feeder fish for him but grew too big). I asked the people at the pet store for advise and after they told me to flush them they just said to use stress coat. The fish did make it and I took them to a different pet store to be sold as pond fish.
Then Fuzzy fell out of her tank, Little Guy ripped himself to shreds on the pond return net, and Greta came with anchor worms. Everytime the one woman I work with said "flush them". I didn't listen and they are all fine. Oh except Fuzzy has ick but she is doing much better. That is why I love this site so much. People really care. And there are such knowledgeable people here that are able to help -thanks again Sasami for all the advice!
I am sure your handsome little boy will be full finned again in no time! Little Guy is.
