That's terrible! I'm very happy that my mom just looks and admires, but doesn't interfere or do anything with my boys unless I ask her to. I can't believe she's so irresponsible with her fish and yours.

I know, it drives me insane! She left a huge mess after, and I had to clean up after her.
I'm mostly over it by now, the only thing bothering me is that she thought she didn't do anything wrong, didn't understand why I was mad, and didn't apologize.
Ugh ;/

Anyway, the tears in Athena and Artemis' dorsal fins aren't too bad. Artemis has only 3 tears, while Athena has a bunch. I'm sure they'lll heal up in no time. My females always seem to heal faster than my males.

Marine is doing fine, he's still marbling I think, so everyday is a nice surprise.

Good to hear that there isn't too much damage done, though no apology is very annoying!

Oooh! More pictures of Marine coming soon?

Sorry for the lateness.
Pics as promised!
Ladies first, as always.

Athena fitting perfectly in the lens:



Athena avec Venus:



You can the little nips in her fins here:



Healing!

Theia:









I like how it focused in on her dorsal:



I have no clue why her fins are clamped. The other girls are fine. The water temp's at 78F, but I moved it up to 80F. Hopefully that'll improve her condition.

Themis:





Venus:



Artemis wouldn't stay still enough for a shot.

Marine's marbling progress is really amazing me. He's definitely turning darker.



Although when he gets closer to the light, you can kinda see his colours better.



Compare:



His top is completely marbled now.

Oh wow I am so jelly of Marine!! Gosh he's gorgeous!!! I don't care what he turns to be, that blue is amazing with the black/white. I especially love his anal fin now lol as weird as that may sound XD

So it looks like Athena is actually a DTCT, not quite prominent gene's but the CT is definitely there with some web reduction. Those aren't bite marks, it's web reduction from CT being in her genes! That's pretty awesome!
