Smile More of Desmoda flaring and update

So far he's doing sort of well - he is just now recovering from a mysterious period of swim bladder upset and bloating despite the fact that I've been feeding him just once a day with one Hikari Bio-Gold baby pellet (he can't eat any bigger pellet XD), but he seems to love his newly restored 3 gallon tank. He tends to watch me as I play the family PS2 and is always curious about the things I put on the table next to his tank (he swims down towards whatever I've placed beside him for a second and then returns to his prior position).

In any case, here he is in a rather impressive flare - his fins haven't looked better! Unfortunately this was about two weeks ago and recently the tip of one of his pelvic fins (the long 'streamers' on the underside') decided to drop off. It's too bad - his pelvic fins have lovely white-blue tips, and I hope that the other tip doesn't follow suit!

But here is my beautiful sweetie, still a bit short-tailed but looking better than he has. :)

He is very pretty. I have a boy who suffers from bad swim bladder problems. He only gets fed once most days or else he gets super bloated.

Yeah, I'm still figuring out what the best combination is for my own fish. I did hear that stress can cause constipation or bloating, which might have been the cause for this SBD episode - the temperature fluctuated somewhat sharply after two days of unnaturally hot weather here. I just hope that it doesn't become a huge trend for him! :(

Thank you - I love my Desmoda. ^^

Thank you! I love his coloring as well - when I first bought him he was much much redder, but I do love the iridescent purple that he developed. Again, thanks. :)
