Rewards for Myself :)

I went to several Petcos today looking for a pretty HM to reward myself for my grades this semester, and finally found one that I liked. He's got the most serious face... I'm not sure if it's a desirable trait, but I think it's quite adorable. You don't really get a sense of how much iridescence he has from these pictures, which is a shame, because it's what made him stand out from all the other HM boys. The second one gives a hint of it, but it's stronger than it looks there.





And I ended up getting this Double Tail as well, because I thought he was so beautiful. I'm sure this is something people say about their Doubles all the time, but I saw him and thought he looked like a butterfly. The animal, though--not the pattern. Obviously. He needs an appropriately light name, but I can't come up with one at the moment besides "Flit."

They're both beautiful! Is that a big dip on the DT's body?

Both really pretty fish! There does seem to be a dip on the DBT's body- around the head area.

Nice fish!!!!!!!

Oooof, that DBT boy has a seriously bent spine. Shouldn't affect him in the long run too much, but poor boy.

Your HM looks so much like my Apollo only his body is a more golden and he's a DT! Separated at birth? lol I think Flit is a perfect name for your DT by the way :)

Yeah, I didn't even notice the spine on the DBT until after I'd gotten him home. It doesn't really seem to bother him, though, and he's still beautiful. :) The HM is still adjusting, but Flit's already blown a nice little bubblenest in a corner of his tank, so I'm actually less concerned about him and his weird back. This was the first time I'd ever seen DBTs that hadn't bitten off their own tails, so I guess that's why I find him so entertaining to watch just swim around and watch the way his tail moves.

I still love my veilteils, but I think the doubles may be my new favorite type. They're just so interesting!

Yup I love my DT! He always looks stunning. And he swims constantly... they're fun to watch. Well you really lucked out on finding those bettas!
