He moves the fins a little, but doesn't stretch them out normally. His fins were clamped at the store (one of the reasons I got him as I wanted to make sure he was taken care of and not stuck in a bowl and overlooked). He's currently in a 1 gallon tank while the 5 gallon that will be his home finished cycling. The temperature is good and he has a filter. I'm hoping just the better living conditions will help, but was wondering if there is anything else I can do for him to speed up healing.
