Talking Your Fish. Then and Now.

I don't know about you, but I love watching these fish change from what they were in that sad little petstore cup to what incredibly gorgeous fish they are now.

Even those aquabid beauties are awesome to watch grow up.

There was probably a thread similar to this a while back but it's definitely long dead, and I'm guessing the majority of us have new fish to brag about. ;)

So let's see your before and after pics!

I should show off my new guy, Azrael. When I brought him home (only about a week ago) he was fin-rotty, lethargic, skinny, and had something really wrong with his left eye.

Here he is the day after I brought him home:



And last night. He's gonna be gorgeous once that tail heals up!



So let's see yours!

Well I've only had Adamu for a week and a half, but I'm already noticing some changes since I got him. First of all his colors are MUCH brighter and have become more iridescent then before. Also he looks much healthier, and is flaring and speeding around his tank whenever I walk by xD Although I think he took a chomp out of fin - -" Bad boy.

Before:



After:





I think he is biting his fin - -" See that big chomp taken out? Eh maybe its because he doesn't like the filter. Who knows... :/

RANDOM PIC OF POLARIS FTW!!! He so cute..... my little baby. I think he's only 3 months old.

Hahaha yeah he's as nasty as he looks. He'll most likely try to kill me in my sleep, just like Spookyfish from South Park lol:

Woah Nebuchadnezzar is NIGHTMARE FUEL. That fish is on steroids........... watch out Metalbetta.

Adamu seems like he's on steroids lately, swimming up and down the tank like a madman- err- fish. He even flares when I walk by - -"

I can't sit at the bar without Azrael freaking out. He's an aggressive little turd but doesn't look nearly as intimidating as Nebuchadnezzar. I'm still convinced that in that picture that that's BLOOD on his CLAWS. Not ventral fins. CLAWS. XD

Lol Metal. Hey, glad to see Azrael's eye is getting better! He is one cool fish. Do you think it was just an injury or did he maybe have a parasite of some sort?
