I got a new boy (and a thanks!):)

First off, I'd like to thank you all for your kind words after Lilith died. I'm still pretty upset about it, and put off cleaning up because I knew she wouldn't be watching me, even mum who doesn't really get why I like my fish was rather sad, but all your kind words cheered me up, so thank you so much :)

Second, my brother was out looking for some royal whiptails today for his tank, and some apisto double reds, and he found this beautiful male fighter which was marked as a dragon long fin. He is stunning! His body is blue which in the right light has this beautiful gold & silver shimmer to it, and his tail is blue and yellow/gold. Sadly he has a little bit of fin rot, but hopefully I can clear that up. And I'll post pictures once I've released him into the tank.

And now for a quick question; he looks to me like a standard VT, so what is the deal with the "long fin" comment they made, because google didn't show me anything :S

Thanks guys :)

The deal with the long fin comment is called marketing

He sounds beautiful! Post a picture!

Lol, how lame. It meant nothing to me, I got him cos my brother and I thought he was pretty :P Still want a crowntail or half moon though :P

I'm just about to release him into his tank, and then if I can find my memory card, I'll get some pictures and post them when I get home from the shops.

Oh I forgot to mention, kept with my Supernatural theme, and called him Castiel :)

Ok, so my brother was looking at him today, and now reckons he is "black with a massive silver head!" In the pics he looks like he is purple! Apologies for the pictures, I had to use Mum's horrid camera!



looking rather purple :S
