Confession...

This is going to sound terrible, but I sort of regret getting a Half Moon. Why? Because he's very inactive due to his heavy tail. Also, since he's a Cellophane, it's really hard to see him. No, I won't take him back, I just feel kinda disappointed. Also, he doesn't have any personality and he still hasn't eaten. He's like a robotic fish. I know I sound awful, but I needed to get that off my chest.

Since Jan 1st. Don't get me wrong, I still love him. I don't hate him or anything. He's just not what I was expecting.

He sounds like a rosetail hm, which is something I don't like either. Normal halfmoons are great!

I don't think he's a rosetail. He's just BARELY a Half moon. But he does have the wavy edges on the tail like rosetails have. I think he'll be happier now that I have him in a 3 gallon, though. He seems to be a little more active now. I hope he ends up with more personality than he has now, and that he'll actually EAT something! lol

Frozen bloodworms will make any new fish your friend. Just give him time. It's still a big new world to him. Logan won't take any bloodworms from me. Nor will he eat in front of me. I come up and he just kinda freezes. Like a roach on the wall. :)

I tried bloodworms with Miki. He didn't even seem to know they were there. And he's NOT blind.

Logan is the same. In fact, he runs from them. LOL. Forgive our newbies. They just don't get it yet. :P

That's why I have adblock. I hate stupid ads. Yeah, I hope he does warm up. I just went near him, and he FLIPPED out. He's so easily startled!
