I Was Bad.

It's this forum's fault. All the talk about Petsmart HMPKs and dragons got me to go down and look. I needed to pick up bags for my fish so I could move anyway. lol... It was between this guy, a copper boy, and a blue dragon with a yellow MG tail. We went with this guy.
He looks like he's got an inflamed gill problem though... There's AQ salt in his QT tank right now... Is there anything else I should be doing outside of frequent water changes to make sure it doesn't get worse?
BTW he has no name quite yet, so names ARE appreciated!



We're readily flaring though! But he looks a little reluctant to let one side of his beard go too far.


I love that his ventrals look like little claws. Reminds me of a little velociraptor. lol




And... HE HAS LIPSTICK.


So happy with him, hope he enjoys his new home in the divided tank with Winston! Well, once my boyfriend takes Rikku to his new apartment. Filling the void... lol

Yup, I just asked and they gave! I've got a bunch of them and a bunch of little rubber bands to go with. I've done it once before when I moved last time. Worked so well, especially if you put them all in a cooler!

I'm considering Alcide... After the True Blood werewolf. I dunno. The claws just make me think of that. Godric?

I vote naming him Grant after the guy from Jurassic Park. (Because of the 'raptor claws'.)
