Yes its Tumult :)

I don't know. I guess it is possible they both might have some type of immune system problem or something. To be totally honest, and don't think I am weird (even tho I am) Pencil always seemed a little bit to me like he had a form of fish down syndrome. He was shaped differently than my other bettas, his head was just always bigger... and he seemed really dopey... Bettas are supposed to be happy, nommy, active guys and he was always slow. I was really disappointed that he was howver he was because I don't feel like he was the same fish portrayed in the breeder photo. The fish in the photo was strong and healthy looking. He has never seemed healthy to me, even though nothing was obviously wrong with him until now.

The same goes for tumult and eggie unfortunately. They all seem like they are just weak. But no real signs of illness.

I will add tho, tumult and eggie do not seem to have fishie downs syndrome. They both seem mentally appropriate.

2 of my black fire females tho, are others I am always iffy about. Just don't seem right.

Hrmmm, I have a weird feeling about my danios, like that. I know they're invincible fish, but they seem fragile......

Smellie, I'm so sorry about Pencil. He's swimming under the rainbow bridge now. You gave him a good life and I'm sure he appreciated it.

Awwwh poor pencil :(

Sesshomarhu seems to be my oddball fish. I think there is something wrong with him as he is always just floating mid level and STARING. He has been like that since i got him. He eats fine, he sometimes swims but most of the time he just STARES at me..all creepy like...but his little side fins are flapping a mile a minute..

Creepy stalker fish

He is one of my 3 tail bitters. The other two are a HM and a CT.
