When I first saw that I thought it was some dirt or sand in the wound, but later I saw a very thin, short brown, string-like material hanging out, which made me think he was excreting through this opening. I cannot think how he got pierced, if that's what it was, but it must have resolved itself. He was never one of those fish that hung around on the glass, so now it's a matter of "watch and wait" to get a look at his underside. That's the only way I'll know for sure how far healing has progressed.It is absolutely amazing that he survived - I thought he "just" had fleshwounds, but I saw now on the pictures that he also had a hole into his body cavity.
Well, I wrote about it here in journal form, but it could be adapted to an article of some kind if there's interest.Are you thinking about writing about your experience?

Someone suggested that I post comparison photos to recall everyone to the way this all began,

Here he is the day of the injury,
around August 10, 2006:
And here he is today, about three months later:

I'm using a smaller photo size than usual, but this thread is still photo heavy,
so apologies to those who find loading them slow and difficult.
I'm a pretty good writer, but in this case the pictures tell the story, don't they?
