Regrowing fins

I’m a little concerned about Alpha.  Most of his tail and a good portion of his lower fin were missing when he came to live with us.  My impression was they were damaged when they captured him.  I’m worried because I can’t tell if they are growing back or not.

Now, I’m not a fish newbie, I know what ick, fungus, etc etc look like, and he’s not got anything visibly wrong with him.  He’s active, interested in his environment and in us.  He eats good.  His color is good.  But I worry that his fins seem just as damaged as before.

Could they maybe never grow back?  I still need to supplement his diet, I want to get him some brine shrimp or something to help with extra protein.  I do need a new heater, but the temp is stay very consistently in the 75 to 80 range.  I wish I could get a really good picture of the damage.  Maybe someone might see something I’m not getting.

Anyway, does anyone have any more advice, maybe something extra I can do, besides just keeping the water good etc etc.

THIS IS MARRIAGE!!

Thats right!

Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.

He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”

Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT

LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT. 
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.

^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.

I would check first too if I was married to Cersi.  

Just making this correction AGAIN.
Women got their names on their gravestones IF THEY GAVE BIRTH TO A SON.  I don’t know if they never had a son, but died in childbirth, MAYBE they got their names on there, I don’t know.  But I DO know that they did if they had sones.  I’ve seen numerous specials on this subject (Sparta) when that movie came out, and that was mentioned multiple times.  THEY NEVER MENTIONED DYING IN CHILDBIRTH.
I just… I feel like you’re leaving out an important detail there.

I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.

..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.

“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”

I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..

..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”.

Whenever I see guys posting this crap, I want to find a picture of a really unattractive girl, one who’s fat, has bad hair, bad teeth, and yet is smiling radiantly, and say “This is a really, really nice girl.  She’s funny, she’s got a good job, she likes to do fun things.  Would YOU date HER??” Because I notice the guys that complain about being ‘friendzoned’ and shit are usually the ones who have some fat, unattractive nice girl as a friend, who’s LOVE to date him, but he only wants supermodels.

These guys are unbelievable.  The funniest ones are the ones that go on and on about all this, and then end their little profiles with things like “no fat chicks”.

Well, supermodels end theirs with “no douchebag ‘nice guys’.”

"You’re a…girl?" 
"Woman. My name is Mulan."


Still pissed off that she left Aurora to join Robin Hood, and then was nowhere to be found when Robin Hood became a big part of the storyline. *grumbles about shitty writing*

ANNNNNDDDD that’s why I don’t watch anymore.  Not Mulan, the crappy writing.  I feel like they have no plan, they just wing it, randomly discarding ideas you’d swear they were building up to, only to take a weird left turn for no reason.. and it’s just dumb.  I want to like it, but it’s just dumb.

a comic done by christianne benedict, posted on the womanthology art forum. brilliant!

YES. Jesus, thank you.

I cannot tell you how many times I have had to point out what the audience at conventions actually LOOKS like to people in the industry. They can do signings in a booth full of every kind of person all day long, every color, every size, every orientation and more, and STILL go online and talk about how only white straight males read comics.

IT IS PROFOUNDLY UNTRUE AND INSULTINGLY IGNORANT.
