My fighter McCree. Day of rescue in March, 1 month progress and 8 months later in Nov. He’s happily in a heated, filtered and heavily planted 10 gallon.
He had fin rot and ich when I rescued him. Walmart refused to sell him to me or give him to me free. So I went back and did self check out. So yes, I did pay for him since they flat out refused to sell him to me, yet put him back out the next day. I emailed Walmart with photos. Their customer team contacted me via phone and I went off about their poor practices.
This little guy is so inspirational. Even in that terrible shape, he was an energetic wiggle puppy the night I rescued him. He never lost hope.
