I almost lost the whole project...not due to lack of saving (I'm actually pretty good at that). Damn file broke. But here it is! Now the story;
These are Skye's 'fillies'. I stumbled upon the upper lady (Stargazer, aka Spoonmelon) on AquaBid. CLEARLY there was something wrong with this fish (remember, I draw the actual fish, so ye,s her head looks like that!!) and I linked it to Skye. Together we came up with a way to get her, and then her sister, off of AB and into a good home (Rebecca's :) ) And we won! They're both living happilly, however long their lives will be.
But to any breeders who see this - shame on you! Making a buck off of big-hearted people! If you see a fish that may be seriously malformed, please save it the misery of what could be a difficult life! Cull responsibly!
Just the same, Skye and I are happy to have them home. ♥ Here's to Stargazer (top) and Stardust (bottom) May you swim happily to the end of your days.
