Update on Lee and a new girl!

Lee came to me as "Annabel Lee".. well Lee is a he and not a she hence the name change. He's doing really well and is continuing to gain weight and add color. He's even more handsome than I ever thought he would be and I'm so happy I adopted him.

"Go away until you have food"...









Right now he's still residing in his 2 gallon temporary home. I'm setting a tank up for my Mom to have and giving her a couple of my other fish so once that tank is set up Lee will be moving into a cycled 3 gallon.

And now for the new addition. I just got this gorgeous little girl today from one of the really nice people in GABBA. I'm going to spawn her with my marble HM male (Rio) in a week or two. Right now I'm calling her "Angel".. we'll see how she treats my boy during spawning as to whether she keeps that name or not LOL












I think she's an 8-ray but my eyes may just be playing tricks on me. She doesn't look it but she is a marble. She has a tiny red dot on her anal fin and some red on her ventrals. I think she's a really good match for Rio and she has some excellent fins to work with

(I'm taking finding her as a sign from the universe that I need to do another spawn this summer )

Thanks :)

I fell in love with Angel as soon as I saw her. I asked how much she was and Jen just gave her to me. Fish people are so generous! We (the group) couldn't decide if she's a marble (she used to have a little more red) or just has red loss. Either way I think she'll complement Rio very well.

Lee is the most beautiful PK I've ever seen (yes I'm biased). I love his color and he actually has great fins. He's going to be my new desk buddy when I go back to school :)

Lee is a male Plakat. You can tell by his body shape, long ventral fins, bubblenesting, flaring (with a beard), and the lack of an ovipositor. I knew he was a male the minute I saw him. The owner I adopted him from was under the impression he was a female.
