This is Gunner. I found him at my LFS in a tiny display bowl covered in fuzz, with fin rot and not moving unless you tapped the glass. That was Friday. I thought about him all night so I went back and to get him Saturday morning. They didn't want to sell him to me because they 'don't sell sick fish'. After talking to the manager they bagged him up and I brought him home!
The fuzz cleared up overnight with clean water and salt. His fins have stopped rotting and he has the biggest apatite. He's on my night stand and every morning since I got him a wake up to him 'wagging' his tail and swimming happily. I'm so glad I got him. His personality is shining now he's feeling better. I hope he makes a full recovery. He's fast becoming my favorite fish!

Would anyone like to share their technique for getting your pictures? When I try I just get a blurry representation of a fish. Anyone, share your expertise?
Namaste,

Idk about everyone else but I use my iPhone 4 camera and snap away until I get a good one. Though, sometimes it takes 20-30 photos. Lol.

I use my canon rebel and get as close as I can without using zoom. Then I let the camera auto-focus as it does a better job than I can! That camera is awesome for a beginer but it takes amazing photos.

This is the best photo I was able to catch of Brave Sir Robin with it.
