In Celebration of Bowser's First GotchaDay!

I was going to wait to post his pics for Jan 16

I impulse bought Bowser on Jan 16, 2012 at PetSmart. I was in with my sister and we were both getting a betta, I had just returned the ghost shrimp which all died in my tank (and subsequently the osmosis shock which killed Laki). There was a fiesty apricot dalamatian but as much as I love them he was a crowntail with sharp fins. I like some CT's but his tail was too crowntail-y for me. Then after some choosing, I had Bowser and another lined up.
I picked Bows because I had the name picked out before I went. I knew whatever fish I was getting would be named Bowser (to go with Lakitu who I still had and thought would pull through). So he seemed the right color. And I liked his tail! I did now even know what a combtail was but I liked the shape.
After a year he is still my baby. I don't know, maybe because he was so alive and spunky while my Lakitu died but I did not grow as attached to B as I did to Laki. For his gotcha day I plan to give him bloodworms and maybe if I get to a pet store and find him something I will get him a plant or dec or soemthing. Maybe I'll get some form of live food if I can find it. Regardless, here's before and after Bowser!

**First 2 are the Jan 16 2012 (day I brought him home)
**Last two are today Jan 12 2013

Thanks. Lakitu was my heart boy, forever in my heart. (also for kickstarting this gross hobby we all have lol)
Thanks!! He is an eye catcher. Very contrasting against all the green. His tail is after maturing an awful lot though. Now it looks messy, part of that was from my mom's less than par care for my 2 week vacation during xmas.
