He is so beautiful and haunting. Recently been thinking of getting an import, what a catch...no pun intended xD

It took a bit of time, but it was worth it! The breeder and transhipper I worked with were great. As a first timer I was scared, but it was overall very pleasant!

He looks great.. happy to see one going through the mail system so well!

How did he come?

Be interesting to see if he stays all white.

Thanks again all! He left Thailand on a Thursday, arrived in Georgia on a Friday and arrived at my house on a Tuesday. He made the trip really well, but now I am having troubles with him :( His fins are getting ripped up! I think he's biting but it doesn't make sense to me. There is of course the very real possibility that he's catching himself on the malaysian driftwood I have in the tank...but his anal fin is totally intact....it's only the caudal fin that's getting messed up. Part of me thinks if it was the driftwood, he'd be experiencing rips everywhere? Argh!

I decided to take the wood out, just in case. I hope that helps!

Not that anyone's following this...haha...but I took out the wood, added a little pagoda-style decoration for hiding and also put some sponge over the filter output to put the water at almost a standstill. I added some API Stress Coat yesterday. Chalky seems happier - swimming towards the top much more and blowing some bubbles - plus there is white regrowth on his fins already (regrowth is white, right?). I still can't be sure if his damage was from the wood or self-inflicted, as I never saw him bite himself...but who knows what was happening in there when it was lights out. Le sigh. I can only hope his fins will regain their original beauty. Is there any hope for that with damaged fins?
