I just got mine on last year, taking them off next year. Lucky!

He trusts me enough to pet him and walk behind him and whatnot. But he doesn't trust me enough to get in my house. ): If he doesn't trust me that way, then he'll never let me put on stuff to clean his wounds. It'll sting him so much. D:

Good luck whatever you decide to do, maybe Canada would like colorful VTs. I wish I had that color on a HMPK. :p

Got mine on February last year, so about a year and a half. Not bad :o
Mine are clear ceramic. Never ever ever get those. Not only do they cost more, but they also stain after eating. Thank God I don't drink coffee/coke often or else they'd stain permanently. That's embarassing
Guessing you have metal? XD
Lol last week, my orthodontist was putting on my last wire, and he casually mentioned I could have coloured elastic chains. I was like... What? All year you could've told me, but no. I get yellow/clear chains that make my teeth look yellow. I was just so wowed.
Guessing yours are metal?

Too bad about the kitty :( Maybe one day you can adopt him yourself? :D That would be awesome. And yeah, if you hurt him (accidentally of course) by clearing his wounds, he'd probably never trust you again :(

Ceramic braces? :I What are those? lol And yeah, I have metal. I get to choose what color the bands are. xD Sorry about your experience. lol

My parents said I can only have a dog or cat once we move, which means I won't be able to see him. >:(

Yup. And the house is a mile away from where I live currently; so he won't be able to know.

And they're okay! Just not colorful. lol

Lol as long as I get them off!
Trying to feed my fish today, and neona comes in, as always.

But today she got smarter. Usually she meows and begs for the shrimp pellets and omega one flakes, but today she knocked over the whole jar of shrimp pellets AND the HBH betta pellets! Grr, cleaning up was a mess and she got a couple! She's such an adorable evil mastermind. Sometimes she'll walk into my room carrying her treats (that I hid) or fish food in her mouth. Drives me nuts but its cute.

Night all!

Marine made his first bubble nest! Yay!



It never macroes in on his face, but it shows the colours/texture nicely.



Another photo I found cool



Not the best quality but a full photo



And finally the top of his head. Is he getting more blue??



Compare:



Yeah he definitely is!

Also the transparency of his tail before :



seems to be fading, I think the blue/black is replacing it. Or maybe I'm just paranoid lol. Day 1 pictures page 4

If he does marble, I'm definitely gonna take photos and track his progress. Can't wait to see!

Beautiful! I want to live in Canada now. ^^"
He does seem to have more blue, does he also have blue iridescence at his tail transparency?
