And that he wanted the tank so bad but he dosent wanna keep killing fish he had no test get no water cond. No nothing so i told him we`d call him back talked it over with my husband and instead of buying the tank we went and spent the 75 dollars on a test kit some prime ( 4 bottles) a extra net , heater, a couple cichlid rocks and a piece of drift wood ( bc the tank pic were pretty bare )(and also gave him our extra water changing hose). I called him back asked if we could come over and look at it. When we got there it was a guy about 40 in a wheel chair we gave him the stuff and i showed him how to test his water how to use the prime and what not. The guy was over thrilled and started to cry thanking us and he also said if he still cant get it right hed just give us the tank ( which we agreeded we'd still pay him) he was greatful for the hose the most he said it will be so much easier than buckets with a wheel chair. Im so glad this ad caught my eye.i helped him do a water change and the fish started swimming more and he was thrilled. And i told him any time he needs help to just call myself or my hubby and we left both our numbers...
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! That is so wonderful for y'all to do & for him to appreciate it so much makes it even better!! Way to go!!!!

This made me smile you both are such beautiful people to be so selfless and I don't think that man will forget the kindness that you two as strangers to him have shown him just lovely.

Thank you everyone befor we moved into our new house we use to foster dogs and since we've moved getting settled and what not we havent found a new rescue yet and my hubby has sum of his cheek taken out n put directly into a savings account that we use to use for the needs of the dogs we fostered. But its just been building up past couple mons so we figured we still had to do some good with it. I hope he really calls us if he needs help bc id reather go help him with water changes and stuff so he can enjoy his tank reather than take it. We also told him when his tank cycles we will take him to our awesome ifs to replace his lost guys.
