My girl, and her home.

Today I got around to taking some nice photos of my girl and her tank. It usually isn't lighted - it is in front of a window and sort of lit from the back. This is the worst possible situation for taking pics, so I had to rig something up. :lol: It was a huge pain, so it has taken forever for me to get around to it. Ignore the construction paper background - it hides the lamp rig I have behind the tank while blocking the light from the window.

This is her tank:

She wasn't used to the light so hid in her little pipe... If I touched the glass, she poked her head out, but the big brightness was scary.

Come out? ... No. :-(

To be continued...

After about an hour, she was feeling back to her normal self and came out. Plus, I tempted her with food. :lol:

She flares much more than my male...

And one last pic:

It is all the same fish. :lol:
She looks a lot different depending on the light.
Aww..what a pretty fishy:)..yur tank is very cool too..:)
Thanks for all the compliments. The tank compliments are kind of surprising - it is really a slapped together tank. :lol: No special effort put into it at all. I put a chunk of driftwood in there to soften the water, a little tube to hide in, and tossed in bunches of the hornwort that grows out of control in my big tank. Not really a lot of aquascaping. :lol:

I am really happy her fins survived - for a while I thought they might have died. She jumped once and I found her dried to a piece of cardboard. Her fins were almost crackly... I had to moisten then peel them off not to rip them. They revived amazingly in a week or so, but the tear at the tip never completely went away.

A bonus glamor shot taken with flash! She is so shiny.
