Back after being gone toooo long!!

I was on here probably close to 2 years ago... looking for info and answers! And I am SO appreciative of all the help I got!

Everything has been going well with Harold (icon photo) except for fin chewing, so I moved him out of the 10g hex to a small, probably 2.5g (?) hex. I finally guessed it was the filter flow too strong. But now I found out about the water bottle trick!

SO I've had this 10g hex empty, except for 2 otocinclus, for a VERY long time. Been admiring fish online, but too scared to try shipping. An opportunity came up a few weeks ago, so I tried... but he didn't make it and now I am trying to go thru this claims process with USPS.

I always just look thru the fish at the local big stores when I have to get something. I've been able to say no with no problems... until yesterday.

I have always admired the koi colored ones and he reminded me of that. Plus he was clean, active... and just really caught my eye.

He doesn't have a name yet... going to let my guy name him! Being a HUGE horror movie fan, esp weird, foreign, etc ones... I can about imagine what he's gonna come up with. (A friend posted a gif from the movie Carrie when I posted a photo of him online... LOL)

Next step is to get a new light for the tank (the old one died) and snails, for both tanks. And I guess he is a dragonscale so need to read up on those... off to search the forums for more info!!

He doesn't appear to be a Dragonscale but, rather, a metallic.

BTW, I was watching a Godzilla movie yesterday on CometTV and fell in love with the name Battra: Mothra's reformed evil twin who helped Mothra rid Tokyo of Godzilla.

He maybe a partial dragonscale like my boy is. Towards his tail he looks dragonscale, but not towards his head.

He's stunning!

Metallic huh? I just went by the label. LOL I will look that up too! I honestly don't know all the different ones, just the most popular! If there is anything else I should know... let me know!

Chuck kinda surprised me by the name he choose, as I was expecting something rather, um... bloody... LOL

His name is now... ARCHER! HAHAHAHAH Yep! One of our favorite shows! Are we doing phrasing?
