No name yet!
First of all, Sue is lovely. Secondly, I had the same problem with one of my males (Macaroni, I'll try and get a decent pic of him tonight). He was sold as a female and had a terrible case of fin rot. I treated his fins and added him to the sorority, and could not for the life of me figure out why my other females seemed so distressed. Ooops! He's happily in his own 5gal now. No more drama. :p
My dumbo eared plakat (Lucius) is blind in one eye from pop-eye too. When I feed him he hovers around, pointing his good eye at me. It's pretty cute. He's such a sweet little fish.
