Your 'before & After' Pics

Recommended Posts

OH WOW, I just found a photo of Patrick on a complete fluke from about 5 years ago. What a squirt *lol*

2005:

Now:

He is a bit stunted as he was not in adequate space for a long time, but I am learning proper care now and he is doing much better thanks to Kokos :D

This is always such a fun thread to look at :)

Here are some updates on 3 of my guys (the 4th is too new to have changed..yet!)

Baby George when I got him about 3 years ago. For reference, Elaine (in the pic with him) was about 4 inches at most

Here's a pic of him from last week

Now for Frederick. Here he is when I got him 2 years ago

And last week. He has grown more round and a bit longer, and has also lost all his black.

And here's Penny from just over a year ago

BT, your before and after pics are probably the most dramatic I've seen! You just never can tell how they're gonna turn out, huh? Good job :)

Haha!

I think Istvan will be a bigger monster than Tinko. He's only about 7 months old. :D

I thought I would share Google's growth over the past year. I got him in December of 2008.

Here he is in December 08 in his QT tank which is a 10 Gallon:

And here he is today, 1 year and 1 month later in his 27 Gallon:

Google-Adult.jpg

And another more close today:

He sure has grown!!:D

Tinko is a Ranchu - and yes, she is quite peaceful. :)

March 15, 2010: about the size of a coaster now / my palm. 5 inches or so I would say. He swims too fast to measure.

I've had my goldfish for exactly two months ...yesterday. I've had them two months and one day. :heart

KaryuComparison1.jpg

Karyu in front of the same rock. Today and the day I got him. He's like tripled in size. O_O

NathanielComparison1.jpg

Nathaniel hasn't grown quite as much as Karyu, but he got a slow start. He's quickly catching up. :heart

NathanielComparison2.jpg

Same rock.

ToraComparison1.jpg

Sorry about the poo!! Best picture comparison though. Tora's put all his energy to filling out and coloring instead of growing longer. :P

Tora1-7.jpg

Oh, I forgot about this one. :wub:

I didn't realize how much they've grown until I went back and looked at their old pictures. :gfish:

Oh, and :mytank1: ~ I just cleaned the rest of the salt out of my redcap oranda's tank and I did a 50% water change on my 40 gal because I spent a while cleaning out the gravel. So now it's squeaky clean!! I'm so proud of myself. haha ...it took forever to fill it back up too. My arm's sore. :blush::P:D
