What do you think about the name Maestoso? It means "in a majestic manner" in Italian (I think)
I actually love it! I the italian language, there names and words just roll off the tongue nicely.. Maestoso. And he is looking goood! I wish crush would color up that fast!

He is very pretty. I love his metallic coloring.

What was his issue? just his head turned weird?
I love seeing the photos of his color coming in.

When I got him it looked like he had a bit of a spinal deformity, but I think that was just because he was emaciated. Since he has gained weight, I haven't noticed any problems with his spine or any issues swimming. When I got him, he had problems swimming (he just floated sideways at the top of his tank), was super lethargic and clamped, and his fins were in shreds.

With proper care, it's been less than 2 weeks and he has gained weight and his fins are starting to grow back. He has also colored up like crazy.

In the pictures from today he was moving around a lot and flaring, so most of the pics I got are blurry ones of him looking sideways. These couple pics were the ones in focus.

I just use a Nikon Coolpix s6100 - it takes awesome pics for being a point and shoot. I think it proves that you don't need a super fancy camera to take good photos!

The new fin growth is so exciting to see! He is a little spunky guy too! I'm slightly concerned that he is going to tear his new growth by flaring at every little thing he thinks moves, but I guess if it makes him kinda happy...

And yes, I think so. I've been calling him that so I guess it's sticking!
