I like all of them. But... darnit.... I started calling him Senor Fish despite myself. Except I say it like this........Seeeeeeenor Feeeeeeesh! I also call him Lil Dude.

Streak would work because he never, ever stops moving. He makes my other guys look like total bums!

He's doing fine today. He's glass surfing but we all know how they do that at first. Everyone's having a spa day because Angela sent me two huge IAL leaves. I brewed them and gave everyone spa water. It smelled like tea.

I like Romeo. I think the hubby is torturing me with awful names so I'll go back to Zulu.

Yay! I'm so glad he arrived safe and sound! He is the coolest-looking fishy ever. I think Zulu is a very pretty name.

Well I woke up this morning and the top half of his tail is shredded. There's a big chunk missing and a lot of tissue between rays is missing. Tail biter maybe?

I checked params yesterday, 0,0,5. When I saw him this morning I checked again, 0,0,5. For cycling, I've been taking 4 new ceramic rings from Tango's aquaclear 30 every day and replacing them in his filter so there's new, strong bacteria being introduced every day. I also stole some big rocks from Tango's tank and put them in. All my guys have tail problems and the water is always fine. Poor Senor Feeeeeeeesh!

He is SO GORGEOUS!!!!

I LOVE you and your husbands debates! XD They're always funny! =] I really like Senor Feeeeesh and Streak; but Zulu and Romeo are really nice too! =]

Do you know if there are other breeders with striped fish? If so I hope they're trying to isolate the gene and make it stronger! I'd love to have a betta that looks like a zebra one day! :D <3

I know. :/ It set in so quick. I'd suspect that there's something wrong with my kit but I got a .5 ammonia reading from Whiskey's tank a couple weeks back. I'll keep checking every day. Now his dorsal is starting to shred.

Betta_afinity said the little guy came from Thailand so maybe she'll get more like him. I'd keep an eye on her fish on Aquabid.
