AUUGGHHHH FRED. Why must your fins be so big and heavy and delicate. It seems like it's so much easier to just keep him in the little .5gal(but he's not happy like that). Small slit in his anal fin now from just being really active I'm assuming. It will heal. Jeez, he's going to be mangled! Maybe I should get the mr aqua tank instead so he can just live with smooth rocks, no filter(I don't mind doing a complete change, 5gal is small.) and a bunch of plants.
I think half moons are really beautiful but darn...their finnage is so heavy and fragile. >.< My next fish will definitely not be an HM. I want an HMPK (dumbo)/spade tail/cute marble/etc. The symmetry/branches of those guys are gorgeous. Need to go look at pictures of mac auley's fish xD Maybe that will get me lovin those HM's again.
