The purchase of the Silver Surfer.

This is Silver. I swear I don't name the males. I sadly let my husband do that and have ended up with Thor, Hulk, superman, flash and now the silver surfer.

I have had silver about three days and he has been lovely so far. He is in a 5 gallon heated and filtered tank and currently spends his time avoiding Oscar the Moss Ball and staring at his intake hose. He is currently silver but I think my husband is going to cry. I believe he is going to have a pink irid.

The pics are blurry because the tank is scratched the water is not cloudy or dirty. The tank was a freebee that came with two working filters and it doesn't look bad in person *shrugs shoulders* free is free.

Thank you I almost passed on him because he was laying on the bottom of his cup and didn't want to move. I found out it wasn't because of an illness, he is just a very relaxed fish. I am glad I didn't pass on him. He is funny, he isn't afraid of anything and plays in the filter current which is comical. He also like I said loves to stare his intake hose up and down.

Sadly he died a couple days ago. He was lethargic at the store. I was hoping he would come out of it but I guess I was too late buying him. Only had him a week and he couldn't pull through. Poor fella. It was one of those things were you don't know what happened. He was lethargic and didn't show any other signs of illness. At least he knew what it meant to swim instead of just turn around for a couple of days.

Oh that's terrible. At least you gave him a good home to live out the rest of his days in. :)

That's what I am thinking about now. I knew he was a little off when I bought him and he swam excitedly for a couple of days at least. He explored and had a good time. I think it was his immune system.
