"Little" Miss Hugo

36 posts in this topic

Don't tell the others, but she still is my favorite :heart I just love her so much. Soilent Green has colored her up even more, her fins are nice and yellow, and her orange is so deep it almost looks red, depending on the light.

Some photos of her in a 1.5g tub, because when she has more room, she will not hold still for photos.

I love how flexible these fish are. Whoever says that a 10"+ single tail needs lots of room to turn around, does not know what they are talking about :rofl

Look at the length of her pelvic fins!

Proof that her tail is pretty much as long as her body.

Being not very cooperative. She does not mind being touched, but she dislikes being "held". When this fish thrashes, it is difficult to hold her. When transferring her from one place to another, I have to use both hands to keep her under control, with her being confined between my flat "praying hands".

Dorsal not extended but still impressive. I love that the lead rays of all her fins are black, that looks so cool :)

GET IN THE TABLESPOON!!!

Last but not least, a before and after picture of her. She was so tiny and plain looking, but you can recognize her by her markings. And oh the horrid cloudiness during cycling...

And a short video of her being gorgeous.

Love Hugo. Walmart is a great source of beautiful shubies if you get them when they first come in.

Thanks everyone! :)

Fang, she is just beautiful. How old is she?

I got her about four years ago at Wally World. Not sure how old she was, but I am guessing about six months. That makes her about 4 1/2 years old :)

Because I am mean like that :lol2

And yes :D

Don't tempt me like that D:

Yeppers! :rofl If you look closely, the markings are in the same positions, and the partly orange face etc. In my opinion she was my least pretty fish when she was little, now I see it the opposite way :D

Love Hugo. Walmart is a great source of beautiful shubies if you get them when they first come in.

I know, right? I don't know where they get their shubies from but they look way better than those at any chain LFS I've ever seen. The only place that tops Walmart's shubies is Fintastic, as they often have bristols and midnights during the summer months.

Yeah, I couldn't resist taking a tablespoon photo :rofl2 Maybe her head fits in it, if at all :D

No pond, just inside :)

Hugo is so beautiful. What a difference in growth from when you brought him home. He sure has changed a lot in colors also. My daughter was looking over my shoulder and seeing your photo's and video also and thinks he is handsome and very big. :)
