I jumped on it when it posted- before I saw anything else. I remember (was it yours) that I saw & adored. We only have room (keeping low stocking densities) for two more fish. Goromo & Goshiki.

Im flipping stoked.

I am planning on putting it down. I don't think it will do well in the long run.

Its a pretty brutal wound. Poor thing.

Just give it to me if you are going to put it down. I can atleast try to save it, and if I do, I can give it a good home.

Melissa,
and Russ
before you give up on the fish, look at the pics that Mary (Cowiche ponder) to of the fish called gilligan that lost most of a gill plate. She healed it up and it turned out really well. I don't remember if the whole plate grew back on gilly or not, but I think there are before and after pix.
I think it might be worth trying, those plates do grow back.

Thats totally up to russ. If he is willing to try- I see no harm

There is nothing i can do as I don't have the space to keep it. If you would like to see if it grows back that would be fine. Let me know as I will probably put her down after I get back from Japan.
