Just wanted to say how proud I am of my fishies...
Eleanor is getting huge! She is soooo sweet and super friendly. She eats from my fingers now, and is always the first one to greet me. She also sleeps on the side of the tank closest to me. I adore her.
Cedric has grown too. He is such a grump though. He will eat from my fingers as well, just not as cheerfully as Eleanor. My daughter calls him Mr. Cedric Grouchyfins.
Sylvia was one of the three "rescues" who was living in one of those teeny goldfish starter kit things. She has grown a LOT! She is as big as, if not a tiny bit bigger than Cedric! When I first got her she was a blueish/lavender/silvery color. She was even that color for a the few weeks they were in qt. After moving to the big tank she has darkened up to almost as dark as Cedric (who is a black moor). Now instead of the light blueish/lavender/silver, she is more of a dark navy blue.
Fiddy Cent (rescue) has not developed any more orange spots and the ones he has still look like tattoos. He has grown a little. He is healthy and active and cute as he can be. He has short fins and a round body so he kind of waddles when he swims.
Bonita (rescue) understands the food concept now. It comes in the top, it sinks to the bottom, you have to find it down there. I want to say she has grown a fraction of an inch, but I'm honestly not sure. Every time I think she has, Eleanor swims by and Bonita looks tiny again. She knows she is beautiful though and likes to admire her reflection in the back of the tank. She does join in on the food begging now.
Little Baby 'Nardo is still in qt, but has definitely grown! He was sooo tiny and now he is almost the same size as Bonita. So far he's had an uneventful QT. He loves food and has a healthy Goldie appetite. He is cute and he knows it. He is friendly and wiggly and just a happy little fish.
Chester (he is a betta, but doesn't know it - he thinks he is a goldfish too...he eats like one!) is doing great as well. He is an honorary goldfish. He has really colored up and is gorgeous! He is also a very good dancer!
I took lots of pictures, but I can't find the thing I need to plug into the iPad so I can upload the pics from my camera. As soon as I find it, there will be pics!
