The new crew at my house!

Well, I went from zero to four within a month and my hubby promises me another next month! These fish are too darned addicting! On the plus side, the hubby thinks this is the coolest hobby I've had yet (my forum name isn't an accident ) so he's kind of enabling me.

I've gotten four boys all from Petco and while I'm taking care of them all, one of them is technically my son's. He picked out this pretty boy for his own:

Sapphire the crowntail (I love how his rays fork at the end!)

Topaz the double tail halfmoon (that's his real color in natural light!)

Opal the halfmoon (his tail's not split or feathered at the edges, the angle is a bit off so the folds appear to be ruffles). I love the color of this fish, he looks like a red fish that someone took a paintbrush full of white paint to, including drips! The red is much more distinct if looking at him from the true side.

And last, but not least, the fish that started the obsession: this is Beryl, the double tail halfmoon. I had to show a before and after picture because while I thought he was beautiful when I brought him home a month ago, the change in him has been quite dramatic and I think he's pretty stunning now. It was really unexpected!

Beryl before:

And Beryl this morning:

I can't believe the different personalities these fish have, if I had more room I'd have a lot more of them. As it is, there is a lot of bubbling going on in my dining room and kitchen

Yeah, Topaz preyed on my mind all day because I really went to get one fish that day and my son picked Sapphire. When I was setting up his tank and talking to my husband that evening I was telling him about the gorgeous fish that I really really hated to leave there and he finally sighed and said "go get him before he's gone". I was out the door in a flash and had to drive 20 miles back to the town to get him, lol.

I wish my petco had fish that looked as nice as that! I really like your HM boy, that coloration is cool!

You have some really gorgeous fish. Makes me want to go out and get another betta too! Only problem is my mom won't let me because she doesn't think I can care for them all; I only have 2 right now. 1 in a 5 gallon and 1 in a 1 gallon (going to be a 2.5 gallon come Christmas) Figured I could place another one in the 1 gallon since sadly the betta in the 5 gallon is getting quite old. He's like 2 now. Anywho, really gorgeous fish, makes me jealous!
