I am back home in the wonderful land of Texas, and boy does it feel great. My kittens are cats, the koi are HUGE, guacamole the pacman frog is gigantic, and my room has a new friend! :) My fish!
Now, the real pictures will come later when I get the card reader, right now is just some iphone photos I got when I first got home:
He's ridiculously active. At first I thought 'wow, he's so tiny he just seems like he'll get lost in that tank!' Oh no, every inch of that tank is utilized as he patrols his territory. He doesn't like his marimo ball...lol! I see him flare/attack it occasionally! He also never hides, EVER. He has a nice cup hiding spot, some bunched up plants to hide in, all these little nooks he could hide behind..No, he just sits out in the open proudly, I think he believes he is a shark, nothing can mess with him! The only place he seems to hide(though he really moreso just likes BEING there) is around the heater(nice and warm and toasty)..he wraps himself around it and glares at you from behind it..It's really cute!
He definitely bit me when I was messing with his heater, that was sort of hilarious and felt bizarre. He's a violent little guy, NO tank mates for him ever!
He really likes the current in the filter, he plays in it a great deal, that side of the tank is his favorite to explore!
He's a little more red than he was in the aquabid photo, but not quite as red as the photos I seem to take(my phone and camera tend to take warm pictures).. He sort of reminds me of red velvet honestly, but with a bit more of a blue hue!
He gets very excited when people walk into the room, he'll stop whatever he's doing and dance back and forth in front of the tank, he's like a hyper 6 year old! Although he's definitely a bully, it's awesome.
This guy has a ton of personality, I love it, it's great to finally see it in person after only seeing videos and pictures online. Woo!
And as I type this he is threatening the thermometer. Oh Dion, you big scary bully!
