Is my Perry young, or just small?
This is my first fish and I'm having a blast with him. My friends and dogs think I'm crazy, but Fish Perry ( he was named after the Honorable Judge Perry from Orlando ) is really adorable. He's very plain looking compared to the gorgeous fish I've seen here, but I think that adds to his incredible appeal! The thing is, he is quite small compared to the others I've seen, barely an inch long from tip of cute nose to base of tail. Is he just a small fish or young? He does seem to be gaining weight and growing slightly longer. I've had him about a month.
We had a bit of a rough start, but he seems happy and frisky. He dances around the surface when he sees me ( I know, " it's the food, silly " ), and sometimes he swims these really cute loop-de-loops through the leaves of his favorite plant. Blah, blah, blah....I could go on and on!
Does anyone know how to tell his age?
