ON A SIDE NOTE!!
LOL
here's my new guy! the first pic is from this morning.. i thought he had black gill at first and i started to get worried. then i finally got him to eat a few bloodworms and relax. a few hours later i noticed some color, so i grabbed my camera. and he flared at me! he may be a pale little bugger, but he's got a black beard! and one heck of an attitude lol
i was going to name him luna moth (his colorings are almost the same minty green), but now i'm not so sure..

His fins are pretty, I like the blueish tinge to them. So glad you got a new one. Can't let that tank go to waste. Hmm . . . you can divide it and get another!

It seems like the guys relax a lot faster than the girls. It took Goldikova a good week or more to stop getting stress stripes. And I STILL don't know what color Rags is going to be. Right now, she's not stress-striped as much but she's still kind of a mud color.

A big black beard. Call him Brian Wilson, after the San Francisco Giants closer. Sorry, huge Giants fan. Huge baseball fan. ^_^ I like the color of his fins, though, they're very ethereal, almost like a ghost or something. A minty ghost. With attitude.

ok, so here's Roxie.. i'm seeing folks talk about stress stripes and such, but Roxie has always had her stripes. does that mean she's in dire need of a cigarette and a valium?

Maybe she's stressed 'cause she doesn't have a boyfriend. She needs a tub of ice cream and a chick flick. But she's a tough girl too and tough girls don't cry. They get stripes.
