Penny is in a pre release pool and is steadily gaining weight.

Penny did so well in fish school that she is now in a pool!

A feisty girl who thinks she’s ready for the wild! She is quickly gaining weight and will be ready for fish in no time.

Penny has already gained a little weight and is progressing well in rehab.

Small and feisty! Penny is always on alert and ready to check out anyone who comes by her tub.
