So apparently I need to get over Claude by getting a new fish. :P Or at least that's what my friends are telling me. I'm getting a new guy tomorrow, and I already did some searching at Petco and Petsmart. The Petco had some beautiful double tails that looked like they had just come in, but it seemed like they had something bloated on their bodies by their caudal fins. Not sure if that's anything, though. Also, I managed to find two real healthy looking VTs at Petsmart who I got to flare. :)
Does it help to get a new guy right away? Also, are those issues with the double tails anything I should be concerned about. And is flaring a good sign for health?
