Copper: What a beautiful fish! And I know, once I hit submit on that post I went "crap!" ... oh well. :P
I knew that I was buying a divided tank, so I got to choose two (I was so happy!) ... and boy, was it an arduous process. I was there forever, picking out cups and placing them in a "maybe" corner based on looks. The Petco people had to have thought I was nuts! I was down to eight, and then it was more about personality and levels of aggressiveness. I picked Calvin because he looks like a beautiful Koi when he swims, plus the ears and the white chin helped. (: Katniss was an easy choice because of his personality. He picked ME. Plus, I've always wanted a DT, and he's such a cute little young one!
What made you choose your fish? (Question directed to anyone!)
