Meet Velvet

Yes I know highly contradictive name but it just seemed to fit. I'm pretty sure she's a VT but her coloring is what got me. A brilliant white with iridescent hues and purple fins. Such a pretty little thing. I think she's got a parasite because she keeps rubbing on her spiky orange plant so I'm treating her with some aquarium salt. I know her fins are clamped but that's because she's in a new home and is itchy.

I know I almost bought a light yellow with cellophane fins. You could see her eggs and everything. I named her popcorn while I was there. I spent like 30 mins looking over the same three fish, the people there kinda looked at me weird until I explained that i was picking one for breeding lol

unfortunately it is a petsmart buy but I think she'll work. she looks healthy and once I get her all conditioned I bet she'll be even better looking. I went to 4 pet stores today. My choices were tiny crowntails (probably really young) or the three i ended up spending 30 mins debating over. The third was a wild type looking with blue and red fins.

Now thats one thing I dont have yet is an ich treatment. I'm hoping the salt works but if she's still itchy by thursday I'll have to go buy some
