I want a baby double tail!
He is back to normal!! I fed him one small flake that I crunched up for him.
He looks perfect now.
I love them!! And babies are so fun! Other than the fin type you have no idea what you're getting. With the smallest one I could barely tell he was a double tail. I went looking specifically for them because I didn't have one and I could get the babies for 2$ when an adult is 6$ plus you get the fun of not knowing. So I went specifically for double tails and they had only about 4 they had way more veil tail and crown tail babies. And so this guy I stared at forever to make sure. And I couldn't pick. The bigger one looks like he's going to have red fins
Which I don't have yet. I have white/pink, blue, and green. And the small one has the red fins but the edges are darker (not black like finrot)
And while the babies are more work, I do water changes every 1-2 days 80-90% it's so much more fun
