Wow everyone, thank you all SOOOO much for your comments! I am so new to this haha. This is a great community and I appreciate everyone's input. His tail is definitly symmetrical in two identical halves. DBT sounds good to me! I also think he is just months old. He measures around 1.1 inches in TOTAL length. He seems to love his nice big tank and heater, but he is so little I think I will wait a few days to turn on the filter.
I am just so stunned at how much I love this little guy. I have been a horse/dog person my whole life and always thought fish were the more impersonal pets you could own. But seeing the clear difference in how happy this little dude seems already makes my heart melt. He doesn't have a name yet, but I am sure his personality will continue to shine. Thanks again everyone!
