New Calico Butterfly, and a Little Surprise!

Recommended Posts

These pics aren't the best (taken with my iPad for convenience), but I was eager to show off my new fish.

I got my new Craigslist tank, a 30 gallon, up and running this week, and I was able to stuff the new filter full of cycled media from the ranchu tank. So it was time to get some fish, yay! I had selected a lovely calico butterfly with the silliest, biggest eyes I've seen In a while. Picked him up today, and he's settling in nicely. Here he is:

And that's all I was going to get, honest. This followed me home all on its own, I swear.

So eek, I have a bubble eye for the first time EVER! He's so entertaining. I wasn't really planning on getting one once I'd decided on the butterfly. But I just couldn't help myself.

Started salt and prazi today. The butterfly has some balance issues that lead me to believe SBD may be in his future or past, which is concerning, but once I'd picked him out I just couldn't change my mind.

No names yet. Suggestions welcome!

Oh my gosh, I'm in love lol. I've always loved bubble eyes, because they always seem so happy and goofy. You were lucky this beautiful one followed you home! :rofl

The tele is of course gorgeous. I love the calico pattern!

Good luck with QT. May it be the most uneventful thing ever. Hopefully the hints of SB issues can be dealt with simply with a good diet. :)

Yep, I removed virtually all decor and added a sponge to the filter intake. It does have gravel, though. I'm going to take my chances there.
