What a gorgeous fish you have! Rose-tailed, right? Beyond the double-tail, I mean.

What happened with his eye, may I ask?

He's a big, big boy, holy moley!

His right eye is perfect, his left is kinda telephoto due to the distance and depth the swelling left. I've seen him using the left eye and I can get his attention from that side but it isn't mobile.

He's actually a mutt of a half moon and double tail it seems. I've caught him at 205 spread before, you can see in there he's got more than 90 between his caudials.

I had him split tanked with a young crown tail for about two weeks but when I call sherbert's name he lufts his fins up a little and the crown tail thought he was flaring all the time.
When I got him from petco he had less than a half inch of fin left, G only knows how pretty he was before they got burned off.

He's so pretty! I love his fins, and his color is absolutely gorgey! You've obviously taken VERY good care of him :)

Odd I've never pointed them out.

The plants around him are little banana plants, you can bury the banana bit in the rocks and they get SO happy.

Popeye, he was in the girls' tank stretching his fins and managed to find a burr or some such on the inside of my 9-way basket. By the time I caught up with the infection his eye was pretty bad, it shrank back down further than it is now, I think I'm gonna run him on kana for four days... it seems to be swelling.

Something you just can't see in the video is his green reflective sheen. I love shining my LED light on him.

ty for your comments too! I cleared my camera today and loaded this vid back on it so I can keep showing people.
