Victoria Schild was shopping at a local Walmart when she saw a fish rotting away at the back of the store. Schild’s heart broke when she saw the fish. It almost lost its fins and tail and was on the brink of death. She could not just walk away and decided to take the fish home.
“I felt incredibly sad for the little guy and decided that I didn’t want him to die in there, just rotting away,” Schild said. “I was 95 percent sure he was going to die that night. When I got home, I started researching everything that I possibly could to help him recover, and probably within a week of clean warm water, medicine and basic care he started getting better!”
Surprisingly, after a few weeks of TLC, its condition improved and its fins and tail started to regrow. “I knew that underneath it all, there was a beautiful little fish. But what won me over was his will to live and his spunk”
The little guy is now beautiful as ever.
