I wasn't going to introduce this guy until his qt was over since he was virtually invisible in his white tub, but there was no point in Pippin's tank sitting empty so I cleaned it and moved him over. This guy was a 100% emotionally based impulse buy. I was at my favorite pet shop picking up a few things and chatting with the owner (I'm starting to set up space in my spare room to try breeding some of my fish and hopefully grow out some fry and she was giving me ideas on where I could sell them if I am successful). I overheard one of the staff members trying unsuccessfully to explain to a family why their goldfish kept dying (tanks are too small, overfeeding, not cleaning enough) and it sounded like they had been regular weekly customers for awhile, each time for 2 new goldfish, one for each kid's room Mom and Dad wanted to buy another round of 2 for $1.00 feeders, but their little girl wanted "the white one" and pointed to this little white lion head. Dad didn't want to spend $5 so they finally agreed that if he was still there next week "after they flushed these ones", she could have him The door had barely closed behind them and I asked her to bag the little guy for me, baha, I know I can't save them all and maybe it was a PMS-y emotional moment, but I didn't want this little cutie to live in a gallon for a week, then be flushed I had already bought some tubs for breeding, so I definitely had the space; he's only an inch long plus tail so he's definitely got some grow out time, lol Sorry for the long winded intro, lol, here are some pics of my new guy, Boo Radley, thanks for looking
