Rescued a cutie!
About a week ago I saw this little cute albino red shinning between some common tiger oscars in a dirty LFS in a dirtier tank, add to it Ich and a hollow belly maybe because of being kept hungry for long time.
got him for $2 and brought it home in the quarantine. now hes in my 40g with parrots and rainbows. at least its a better home for some months. hes 2 and half inch long now.
eats well and acts normal but his belly looks a bit deformed. theres a small hump on the anal area. it occurred after the first feeding. seems when I started feeding him after being kept hungry for a long time his intestines got extended unusually :( I think I should feed him less than normal for a while to help him get better.
also he has got some blacks on the fins and tail edges during this week, I have no experience with albinos but I think its not unusual as I've seen an albino red with black edges on the Hikari cichlid Bio-gold+ cover! lol
here are some of his pictures.
