The other day I saw the loveliest little plakat at the petstore, and I felt horrible for her because the water in her cup was filthy and she was shoved behind some other crap on the shelves... and so I got her. :D
Well, at least I think it's a she! Could anyone offer input on this, because I know plakats do have some differences between sexes, but I was under the impression PetsMart only sold male fish. I love her markings, she reminds me of a wee little koi.
And here's the definitely male that I rescued from the same place:
Right now I have them both in a sort-of 'hospital tank' while I make sure that neither have anything wrong with them, then they'll be introduced to my 10g and 15g, respectively. :)
