New Fish!! *pic heavy*

Soooo, I caved. I've been thinking about getting more for a while. Originally just a female or two, but I ended up with a female and a male. I went to Petsmart for a filter, got 4 ghost shrimp, a snail, a HM male, and a female.

I had my puppy there with me, so it was difficult to spend my time looking for one. But I am pretty happy with the two I got. Still trying to think up good names. Maybe you guys can help me narrow down my ideas!

Also curious what the female is, she wasn't labelled as anything except female.






For him, I'm thinking:
Hades
Morpheus
Saber
Thaddeus
Slade or Slate

I think my favorite is Hades and Morpheus . . . :-/






For her, I'm thinking:
Athena
Sweetie Bell
Apple Bloom
Acacia
Aphrodite
Calypso
Galena
Helena
Nerissa

My favorites are Athena, Acacia, Aphrodite, and Helena.

And a couple of pair pics for good form:



Love this one ^


Yes I am aware their current housing is too small, but its just for their quarantine time. Male may end up with a half of Kevin's big tank, or maybe the female will. The other will get their own that I have in my brothers room. Haven't decided who yet.

Eventually the female will be a mate for someone, but I'm in no way set up for breeding, plus they need to be "beefed up"

Nice Fishes!!!
Oh, and on your male's fin, did you see the tear?
If you want it to heal, of course you do, you need to keep the water EXTRA clean.
You should probably keep them in their own tank to themselves. The female might get eggbound. And if this happens she might die.
And for your male, you should also treat the tear with AQ and clean water.

Yeah, I did see the tear. I added some of this stuff (forget the name) that cleans the water and promotes healing. With the smaller container, it'll be easier to change the water every day.

& I'll keep the tank thing in mind

It's actually pretty rare for a female to get egg bound and die.
If you want to use her for breeding, it would be better to have her in her own tank though. If she gets too used to being around a male it could make things difficult.

They are lovely though. Personally, I like Morpheus and Calypso. The last pic is nice. ^_^
Love how he has the "racing stripe" like two of my dragon boys do.

Thanks and no prob. I misread things all the time haha
The other day I was reading something and read "Mom's eating, babies well." as "Mom's eating babies well". haha

I think I've decided upon Hades for the male and Helena for the female. I think Calypso would be better for a bluer female. And maybe one of his sons is a Morpheus, It was a close second lmao
