Old boy

This is a fish i had years ago, his name was Deimos. I just wanted to share his amazing color change with you guys.

When i got him:


After a month, literally... almost to the day.:

May he R.I.P... i miss him. (these were in 2009... and he was in a 5 gallon)
Uhm, also, he was a half-moon. XD Just for my own sanity i had to put that on here, it was bugging me. I never did manage to get any flared photos of him when he was still white.

Was he a marble guys? Im not sure... I had never seen one color up so much. I mean i have seen them darken, but never go from snow white to splattered in red. XD


dunno if this should be somewhere else, since he isnt a current boy... :P

Its in the right place, yes- posts with only pictures go in this section.

Id say he's a marble- theyre the ones that change colors like mad, and do so sometimes very often.

Yeah, it took my boy Jadde about a month to change from all-white (with a few light spots of red and blue, when I got him) to quite literally Thailand's flag.
Makes me glad I gave him a middle name of "Siam" xD

He was gorgeous, though. And dropsy sucks. D:
Sorry he passed away.

Hey, sure! I'll post a few of him here, if you don't mind:

What he looked like way back when I first got him:


Recent picture (what he looks like now)

(ew, all that algae... xD My algae eater was slacking on his job... I ended up having to clean it |D )

...lol, at first, I thought I was going crazy when I noticed some light blue speckles start to appear on his body.
Man, he's changed! xD

HA! I love (and laughed) that comment, thanks!
And I have a haunting feeling that he isn't done changing, either.
I think his colors are still getting deeper and darker. 8D
