And then there were 2!

I went to the the store yesterday with no plans and came across a Crown Tail which is the first time i have EVER seen one in South Africa. And if there are others around im sure they are sold very quickly! This one was sold but the person hadnt come in as yet so I snatched him up because the store owner knows how long I have been looking for!

Shame, he had a friend in the tank nextdoor, also a Crown Tail who was in terrible condition...if i had the space and money i would have taken them both.

That's a shame :( Well, there is no such fancy kinds in my part of the world, just the usual veil tails, but I think I have got the deltas (but not sure really lol) by accident cuz they don't look like veil tails to me.

No I have lost the link, can you PM it to me again and the suppliers name? I can see how addictive they become, I'm so loving them! I wanted a different colour but in this case I couldnt be choosey and I scooped him up before the other person came in to collect her fish!

I never really realised just how big my first one had grown until I got this little guy who still has a lot of growing to do!

I've put my 2 in a divided tank - provides them with some entertainment as well as they like to flare at each other. My older one is happy to retreat to his cave and ignore the new one but the baby is like a red rag to a bull!
