I think he got stunted from living in that shot glass sized cup at Walmart for so long when he was still a baby. I remember seeing him at Walmart for at least a few months before I finally bought him. He has been in a 5 gallon ever since I first brought him home up until a week ago (now he is in a 1 gallon, he seems to like it more. Plus, he is so small that he actually has alot of room). But he has never got any bigger.
Could be bad breeding too. Because the upper part of his mouth is deformed to where he cannot close his mouth. It looks like he is whistling. And when he flares only one side works.

Then a dalmation should be next on your list when you go to the petstore and swear you will leave empty handed but end up, well, not. :)
That is exactly how all of my trips are.

Wow! Poe looks like he'd taste like tropical fruit punch if you licked him. Yum!

(I don't really go around licking fish, lol - but he looks yummy, in a good way - ok, no worries - I'm not going to eat your CANDY COLORED fishy - I just want to lick him a tiny bit)

I think I need a fruit snack... later!

I never have "extra" money to do that with, and the only setup I have available is a 1 gallon with a heat pad. It works fine, but I don't think I'll be getting another until I can at least buy a slightly larger tank. Unless, of course, I find a guy as small as Glitter. He's about 1 1/4 inches in body length. His tail is the same length as his body. We both have mini fish.

Again, too bad shipping tanks is so expensive. I have a filtered (also cycled) 5 gallon with black gravel, silk plants, fake stump cave, and little glass shells that I no longer need.

That sucks, Aluyasha. It's quite a bit lighter than a 15 gallon. Could you just check to see how much the shipping would be? I'm curious. I couldn't get it this month (broke again), but maybe next month, if the price isn't prohibitive.

I love dals. They're probably the coolest color variation... outside of marbles of course...
Here's my other dal, (my little angel of death), Azrael.
He was a walmart "rescue". His eye was infected and he had some nasty fin rot when he was brought home. Now his tail is almost fully healed, and his eye is fine. He's got these crazy emerald green eyes. I love them!


Here he was back in November:




This is him a couple of months ago.

I did check yesterday (was also curious) and it said something like $40
