I rescued a Watermelon for $35

Walked into my local pet shop where I buy my dog food, not my fish, they are horrible at keeping fish. I always walk by the aquariums anyways and I saw this big fellow in a 20 gallon with nothing but plastic stones and neon colors gravel. He was totally stressed out. I asked the girl on duty where he came from and she could not tell me. I had a feeling her was a watermelon but I could not be sure. I had to bring him home! He has been living the good life in my 90 gallon for about 3 months now and has gotten huge! ( I have a friend selling me a 210 to upgrade to). He's about 8 inches by now I'd say and very fat and happy. He has also grown lots of hair and whiskers, which is why I keep referring to him as a male. I have always wanted a watermelon. I cannot believe I stumbled upon this beauty. Thanks for looking!

well done for taking on this pleco he's looking really good. It's awful when fish arent treated right by those we trust to sell them to us in a good condition. I rescued a pair of adult Mustard spots last week, both from a tank without wood. It has only been a week but the male is doing very well, putting on some belly, the female is still needing a lot TLC, I hope to also have some pics of a vast improvement in them both very soon.
