(Re)Introducing Hyperion [Pic Heavy]

64 posts in this topic

I've decided to (re)name my fish after the Titans :rofl and (re)introduce them to you one at a time, hopefully on a monthly basis. So, without further ado, here's the first, Hyperion.

Meet Hyperion :)

I've had him for about half a year now. He was listed as a panda butterfly moor, but from the beginning, he was more of a tricolor. I'm also a bit iffy on classifying him as a butterfly, but it's close enough :D

Here he was, six months ago

Here he is now. I'm pretty happy with his growth and color change. Don't tell anyone, but he might be my absolute favorite at the moment!

I apologize that some of the pics aren't very clear. I have the toughest time taking pics of the 55 gallon. Thank you for looking :)

Wow what a stunner! He's huge too! I wish I could see that kind of growth in 6 months.

Thank you, PSP! He's really turning out really well :).

He's been on Pro-Gold, Repashy Soilent Green, and Repashy Spawn & Grow. I'm really pleased with his growth :)

Also, because of some technical error, there were two threads, and the other one got deleted. I would like to thank leross04, Drowsy, and Sakura for your kind comments. I'm unable to recover those comments back out.

From Drowsy

I just LOVE those little spots on his side. Like freckles. Wow he is really adorable. <3

I love those spots, too. He is just a super spunky fish, and is the biggest reason why I am all for raising fish from when they are young. :)

From Sakura

Ooh, he's beautiful! And look at those manly breeding stars he's sporting! Great shots. I'm with you about being iffy of the butterfly classification though, his tail has too much forking to be a butterfly tail.

Thank you!

I don't think he's a butterfly either lol. I think they labeled him as such to raise the price, which I negotiated back down anyway lol
