Overall Progress Tripod is progressing well despite having a missing flipper. This injury is fully healed, but it meant Tripod had a tendency to swim in circles!! We need to keep encouraging Tripod to swim the opposite way by tempting it with food and changing the water flow in the tank, so that it builds up enough muscle strength have the coordination it will need when it is released Tripod is eating well, gaining weight and is able to dive and rest on the bottom of the tank, but does not yet have the stamina for deep, active dives.
