I got my fish Indy a little more than two weeks ago today, and he's been coming along in leaps and bounds since then! I decided it was about time for another photo session, so...
At first I wasn't entirely sure of his tail type, and I didn't want to stress him out too much by making him flare.
Ok, so here he is a few days after I got him, on 5/28:
Already he was looking better than the day I got him. Still skinny. Still has that dark patch on his side... not entirely sure what that was about!
And here he is today!
Flaring... at a weird angle...
Wish he would have stopped moving so much so that I could get a good picture of his flare from the side... I've come to the conclusion that he is /definitely/ a fantail. Not a super delta like I'd hoped, but it doesn't matter because he's a pet anyway <3.
I have NO CLUE what that dark patch on his side was (You can see it in my avatar, too - the day I got him). But... whatever it was, it's gone now... He's still super young and his fins are getting longer every day :D. I can't wait to see how he looks in another few weeks!
The dark edges on his tail that you can see aren't tail rot. I think it's just where the color reaches the edge... But his tail's definitely not getting shorter, so xD
