Butterfly Telescope Fry!

Recommended Posts

I would love to see more photos of this one :teehee

I just got back from a week long vacation and quite a few of them changed colors! I didn't unpack the dslr so I used a point and shoot :) The fry I posted last turned into a temporary panda :D

You probably get asked this a lot, but what camera\lens do you use? Your photos and fish are breath taking! I wish I could take a little bugger off your hands. :P

Thank you, and it's okay, I don't mind answering haha ;) All these pictures were taken with the Canon T1i & kit lens.

That's not even fair. :wa I have a newer model DSLR and you take better photos than me. :o Do you edit the photos at all?

I edit in iphoto on my macbook :) I bump up the contrast a teensy bit, remove a bit of shadow if there's too much, then add a bit of blue hue to add an aquatic "feel" to the pictures and enhance the whites.

It took me ten months of practice to get where I'm at :3

Thanks :) It's much more fun looking at a tank full of colored fish versus before when they were all fry coloring :P

Absolutely stunning! I keep wanting to pick a favourite, but the minute I do someone else catches my eye. If only I lived closer and had room . . . sigh.

Here are the two telescopes without butterfly tails:

They both have a more stream-lined body shape than the ones with butterfly tails and thus swim much faster :)

hi bubbles, they are looking great. I think that breeding and raising them from egg is the most enjoyable part of this rewarding hobby.

Well Done!

Is the one on the right a Willow? :)

Thank you! :) I have to agree. It's been an incredible journey from tiny little egg to an actual fish haha. And the colors! It's always a surprise to see how they turn out.

They are gorgeous :D

Thank you :D

Not quite but he/she does kinda look like one! It has a double tail so it's just a telescope goldfish :)
