Love his absolute red!
Thanks. I didn't really know anything about common/uncommon colors, but he was the healthiest looking and most "responsive" of the fish there.
Happy holidays to all!
I got the 10 gallon tank and a pretty wrought iron stand out of my parent's attic along with:
* a dated hood (do they even make the bulbs for that anymore?)
* a net
* the "complete idiot's guide to freshwater aquariums"
* and something like $75 in expired water treatments and fish medicine
I wasn't kidding that my parents tried very hard to save the fish that they inadvertently killed
