Short Intro to my new fishy :)

My new fish came today! :) (from raingarden)

He is so teeny compared to Edie! I will probably keep him in QT for a couple months to fatten him up some. As much as I love the look of a deep bodied fish, I purposely chose a long bodied one in order to lessen the chances of SBD.... having dealt with a floaty fish for the past year I want to do everything in my power to avoid having another one!

I couldn't get many pics because he is very skittish and began darting around when I turned on the light, so I'll have to do a more formal intro in a few weeks once he is settled (and once I have a name!)

I was really impressed by the water params. Ammonia was about .25, and Ph was about 6.6-6.8 (which means there was essentially no toxic ammonia in the bag)
