I got these guys two weeks ago from really bad conditions, they are brothers, they were put together with the rest of their siblings in a cramped tank and were filthy and injured. These guys are thriving with me and I wanted to share their progress! I got them when they were less than an inch big, they're still tiny and have a lot of growing to do but they have recuperated amazingly! Sterling is a steel blue DBT and Tranny is a blue-green VT (who had gender issues)... Sadly their brother died of an unknown disease possibly fur coat syndrome but I'm relieved I could atleast save them.
Ok Sterling first:
This guy is a stoic little boy, he is very calm and even eats like a sophisticated fish, no attacking and one worm at a time; he's all zen like :P
See still tiny, that's a normal teacup btw
He gets vertical stripes like a female?
You can probably see why I named him that, he looked like a girl and was always clamped up, had an eggspot and everything! And he would never flare- now he's all man fish! And his colours are wow!
And today he left me a little gift too..
My boy's all grown up! Sniff!
