An under dog story :)

A couple months ago this guy was in really bad shape, his fins were torn and damaged, and he was missing a bunch of scales on one side. He was in a tank with a big jd and One particular night some stuff went down! I was sure it would have died in my tank so I took it to my dads tank to see if it would come back. It was in a 30g with some little tetras and a guppys and slowly recovered, always extremely reclusive and timid, Once he looked to be in better shape I put him back in my tank (this time with a similar sized green terror) and his whole personality switched. From whimpering away from little tetras to pulling rank over the green terror! Down the road I may have to sort out more issues as the fish mature but it's always nice to see a full recovery from such a bad fight... And then see the fish take charge in it's new environment!!
