Enough of those silly babies ;) here's some updated pics of my crew.
First off.. General Lee. He is my baby <3 he sits right on my desk next to my bed so he's always up with me at 5am every morning and is the last fishy I say good night to. He's getting upgraded to planted so he's pale in these pictures because he was in a holding tank while I set up a 1 gallon temporary tank. I might even get him a 5 gallon to upgrade from his 3 gallon.
I'll be sure to update again once he's in his new planted paradise :)
Now onto other fisheez.
Bubba <3 Poor guy is so shy. He always has vertical bars. So I put him in between two lovely ladies to get his confidence up :)
AAHHH a flare! This is literally the FIRST time I've seen him flare since I bought him back in November.
Now Lieutenant Dan (formerly Jenny). He was the "female" I got that I had originally planned to breed bubba with. Glad I didn't try!
Flirting with Freckles
Myrtle.. still getting over a bit of fin rot.
Freckles.. my newest addition. She and one new female will be in a divded 10 gallon with Myrtle :) I'm not doing any more sororities until I have tanks larger than 10 gallons.
And Finally.. Lionel Logue. Gotta have my orange dal :)
Thank you if you managed to muddle through all these pics. I just wanted to get them all done in one big thread :) I'm missing Tallahassee and Bowie but they're both recovering from bad cases of fin rot :( so I don't want to stress them by taking pics.
Freckles came from petsmart. My Mom convinced me I needed to get her :p I resisted but finally decided to get her this morning. She and one more female will go with Myrtle into a divided/cycled/planted 10 gallon.
She's a VT so I won't be breeding her (if I even decide to breed again this summer) but she's so freaking cute! She's been at petsmart all this week and last week (when my Mom saw her) so I figured she'd make a nice addition and I miss having more than one girl :)
My Dolly and Polly are CTs from PetCo. Polly was TINY when I first got her (See my avatar pic, haha) She's gotten almost as big as Dolly now who is the largest female and is eggy for the first time right now. I love those little faces that they have, just like Freckles.
Dan is gorgeous. I though he looked kinda boyish when he arrived and a month later he started finning out and flaring and I knew LOL. I'm considering spawning him with my blue female this summer if I'm not too busy. I'm curious to see what that would throw.
I dunno about bubba ever since he arrived he's been very submissive. I'm hoping that changes now that he has two ladies to show off for. I was so happy to catch him flaring lol
