Okay, so here is the story...

When i went to my local Petco a little over a month ago and got Twitch, there was this amazing silver-lavender-red marble HM plakat... but at $20 he was much too expensive for me... and i regretted not getting him ever since. I kept thinking about him and thinking about him, and today i made up my mind. I made a third divider for the tank and headed down to petco to see if he was still there, and omg! He was!! And healthy to boot! I was so excited to see him that i walked around stunned for a minute. I saw the fish guy, whom i had connected with the month before and approached him with a smile. He remembered me and we got to talking about this boy, and i asked if he could discount the fish, because he had been on the shelf for so long... Well he couldnt do that, so i sneaky smiled and asked if we could switch him out with a girl, seeing as he was plakat, the people at the register would NEVER know the difference, and he grinned and switched them out for me, telling me that he was only doing it because he knew that the guy was going to a good home.

I could not stop grinning guys!!! OMFG!!


Okay, so picspam time. xD

New tank set up still a touch cloudy from moving decorations and such, each boy now has around 2.5 gallons, a plant, and a cave.
Spot - Twitch - new boy - Willy



And a spam of the new boy:
















Isnt he a beaut?

Can you guys help me with a name? And he was labled (before the cup swith lol) as a Halfmoon Plakat, is that correct? I never trust the labels...

I love his coloring!! That lavender and silver is amazing...I'm so happy he got a good home.

What is in the fourth tank? Plants - I couldn't see...

Lots of good luck with him. I can't believe he was in this great shape a month later!

Wow, I love his color! I like your selection, crowntail, halfmoon, plakat and veiltail. I'd say he has more of a puckery kissy face, lol. You could call him Smootch.
