Kilo's first flare

He's never flared. Not once. And now I think I know why. I was cooking taco meat and I walked over to his tank and leaned down with a measuring spoon in my hand and apparently that was suspect. He flared and he's got this TEENY WEENY little beard. I mean, it's easily half the size of my other guys. And he's twice their size. Think he's embarrassed? I was like... "AW! Lookit your lil beard. It's so cuuuute." and he swam away from me in a huff. Alright, that part's probably made up but he DID swim away. Anyone else with a King that's got a mini-beard?

Edit: I had just fed him frozen bloodworms. Maybe he was feeling fierce.

Aww.. that's cute! I tried to get Poe to flare yesterday but he just looked at the mirror and went back to looking at me for food.

ETA.. I just put the mirror up to the tank and Poe flared! He was so cute!! His beard seems normal length though. I gave him his brine shrimp and he kept flaring.. what a cutie. I'm going to try to get pictures of him flaring later.

Aw! Yeah, get pics. Kilo's a big smooshy teddy bear I guess. I'll have to live through Poe's flare! Although Whiskey flares at me ALL day. He's doing it right now.

I got pictures of Poe flaring! He's so cute! He'll flare if I put my finger against the tank (Fish used to do that).. none of my other boys will do that unless they're in a bad mood (aka fast day). He also built a big, thick bubblenest! I guess he likes his digs.

He's quickly becoming my favorite. He reminds me so much of Fish in his personality. It really makes me want to get some Giants and breed them... I just need a couple hundred dollars to get a good pair

I'll put the pictures up in the "He's Finally Here" thread I posted yesterday.
