I also say VT for now since I can only see two ray's in his tail but it's hard to tell in the smaller photographs and I know they don't normally stay still.

Okay, I bit the bullet today and got a baby. Both the baby and an adult I got were haunting me as I walked about the store. Good thing I have two tanks, and I was actually there looking to get one! I had meant to only get one. LOL

Anyways, pics of the baby to come. I'm doing a very slow drip acclimation for it, even slower than the drip going on the adult! It was swimming around and unclamped in the store, and is doing so now. :) And either it's in the middle of a fin growth-spurt (more likely), or it's a crowntail (less likely). :) And there's hints of a blue body and red fins, but who knows how it'll turn out!

He sounds like how my little Tony was when I first got him (minus the swimming part lol) but I thought he was going to be a CT too but now I don't know what he'll be! He's not VT because VT's only have two rays and he's got four so far so we'll see!!!

Can't wait to see your baby!!

Thanks! I want to be extra-careful acclimating him, which is why it's taking so long... The adult was done and ready to be released in 1.5 hours. lol

The baby is so cute. I can't wait to be done taking pics so I can post them!

Baby's in his/her new home! Spent about 4.5 hours dripdripdripping, and then went in. S/he's already had one meal, and will get another before I go to bed. :) S/he had a blueish tinge to the body and a reddish tinge to the fins at the store, but between being freaked out by the ride home, and the bad lighting at night in that area (the tank only fits C7 bulbs, and all of those available right now are nightlights) you can't really see any color on him/her.

And the big boy that also wouldn't let me leave without him:

Ooh he's pretty.

Bubblefishy's tank is in my daughters room and last night she was being a pain at 10pm, insisting she needed her sheets changed (anything to stay up, lol). So I had to turn a lamp on, and i couldn't find him in the tank...i looked and looked and finally found him sleeping inside the floating log! It was so cute!
