Before and now of Aki the walmart fish and Kinzoku the Giant Plakat

So some of you may know of these two guys both are my most recent purchases. Aki is from walmart and Kinzoku from petco. Kinzoku simply refuses to unclamp his fins. His water temp is fairly cool though still figuring out my options on that. But he has darkened a bit so I am happy and he seems happy. Aki took some time to adjust but is now happy and smitten with Sakura his neighbor.

Aki wasn't thrilled to be photographed tonight and the pics are a little dark being that its dark outside and he doesn't have a hood light on the tank. Any ideas on his coloring?

First is Aki
Before

Later


Now. You can see he has darkened a bit


Kinzoku
When I got him


Now





And Sakura just cause I love her

He almost looks like my pink copper Margaret. She doesn't have those gorgeous lips.

Yea Margaret is a funny little thing. I had no idea she was a copper until copperarabian told me. The first pic is a frontal view of margaret. Please excuse Patty's big head. She's a ham. and the second is a body shot of margaret. In bright light she looks light pink on camera but in dim light she looks just like your's

Geez I was looking at the wrong fish you wanted to know what people thought of the first one. omg im so oblivious sometimes. I think that one looks like a mustard gas almost. I have been seeing them with bright blue and yellow, bright green and yellow. Yours looks dark yellow which is new.

Margaret is so cute!
I was just showing off how my boys have changed over the last few weeks, and I got a good pic of her and decided to throw that in.
A mustard gas? I don't know never seen an orange/brownish/dark yellowed one. I am leaning towards a mutt, but would love to know what he has in him. I know he has some dalmation, possible mustard gas.

They look like they have darkened nicely. on the first boy, yea it's hard to tell because the yellowish is so darn dark. Here's a good one. I got a mustard gas recently that is a bright blue/green with the bright yellow. Never seen anything like it. I can't get any good pictures of him though! Your last fish is very very gorgeous. I love the cartoony lips betta's can get sometimes. It's hilarious.

they have. I know I am leaning towards a mix of many things lol my sister has described him as a pukish color. I lean towards a very yellowish brown. He is not stunning, but he grows on me every day.

I don't see anything wrong with him. I think he's different. He isn't like all the rest.

No there is nothing wrong with him and I love him tons! I think he grows more beautiful, there have been a few times I go up to the tank and am like wow you are becoming beautiful. But then I am a bit biased lol
