I just noticed a white thing hanging off of my new crowntail's gill cover. D:
(big picture warning)
He might have had it when I bought him, but I'm not really sure. He's hard to look at because he doesn't like to get close to me. I don't think he would have got this in the two hours I've had him. >>
