Water Changes and Phin's wen

17 posts in this topic

I LOVE doing water changes. There is just something so satisfying about them. I love knowing Phin is swimming in clean water. I love the way he nibbles on my hand when I'm moving decor around and vacuuming. I love watching him swim and play in the splashing water when I'm filling the tank back up. He always seems to be perkier and have more energy right after a w/c. 

 

On an unrelated note, I've noticed that Phin's wen has grown! He's actually starting to develop what I think is a nice looking wen. So  :pp  to the LFS guy who told me Phin couldn't be an oranda because his wen was too small.

It still isn't huge, but it has definitely grown and is bigger than when I brought him home.

I know right!  I could tell him I'm really worried about this growth on my "fantails" head. Does he have any idea what it could be? Oh a WEN?! Like on an ORANDA?!  :yikes  :rofl2

That's bigger than my wen challenged ranchu :rofl. All the clean water and awesome food in the world isn't helping him. He just gets bigger and fatter :D

That is a very respectable little wen!

Phin has gotten bigger and fatter as well. He looked so tiny and lost when I first put him in his 20g. Now he's grown into it and I think I may need to get something bigger. Maybe a 40g.  I don't really have the space for anything bigger right now.
