I thought I would update you on the boys I adopted from you on June 18th. I told you that the white one passed the night I got him. He seemed OK out of the bag, but developed ich and was dead within 12 hours.. Some fish just can't handle the trip. We put him in the front yard in the sunlight... he was only with us a little while but I placed him on the porch, in the sun ( I just do this for all my fish sometimes.. they seem to love it, and I can get good pics) and he was more active while he was there, so I figured he should be in the sun.
Micah, who has been renamed Robin, is doing wonderful! He's so bright and happy! His fins are so long he has a little trouble moving, so his 5 gallon section of the big tank has 2 leaf hammocks. He just LOVES making bubble nests. I'll mess one up moving his heater or a leaf and within a few hours he's made a new one twice as big!
This is the pic of Micah you used. He's called Red Robin (or just Robin :) ) now.
Robin the day after I got him.
This is Robin today. His tail is growing out very well, he is getting larger and filling out. He eats well but isn't very active. He has a little trouble moving with his large fins. I'm pretty sure that if his tail was to grow out fully he would be a rose tail. Which is a shame, but I love him anyway!
I'm going to post updates on the other boys when I have the time!
