A member suggested that I ask here just in case my fish may have velvet? I "think" my fish may be copper? (His body is like a gray/cobalt blue/purple, his fins have the same color+copper coloring?)
If you shine a flashlight on him you can see a pretty gold sparkle on his fins on top fin and tail. Is that irridecence? or velvet?
Also, when I got him he had a small hole in his tail fin, he has black coloring on his tail, and behind it his fins are transparent. on his lower fin they are white. the white is new fin growth I am guessing?
The transparent parts of his tail don't seem to be tattered at all but the black part seems to be getting slightly larger? (he has been growing a bit though, he is pretty small yet, and since he is a pet store fish I have no idea what his parents were like)
My friend JUST sent me these and they're the only pictures I have that aren't black of my fish. (TS, not moose :( ) Its the best picture I have until I can get him in my 3 gallon.
I don't understand how to get pictures in my profile album to go here, or else my computer is blocking me from seeing them... (Happens to half the pictures on here.)If picture does not show here I do have them in my picture album here on the forum.
The temp in my tank is 80, the thermometer is sitting at a bad angle, he likes to knock it around.
