Helen

Totts Tank, Butterfly Telescopes, Pearlscales and a Fantail :)

Recommended Posts

well, it's been asked a lot recently. here is one of my tanks that i call the Totts tank.. although the fish aren't what you would consider small.. 5"+ to me, compared to my giants, they are small..

(not all the totts are in this vid, 3 fish are in qt.. they presented with slime coat thickening, so they've been salt dipped and are spending a few weeks in 0.2% salt, recovering nicely :) )

so, seeing as a few requests were made for me to present a video.. preferably to name my fish.. i hate to disappoint, but i don't speak in this one :) but you're not missing anything.. other than Rocky, who is my 8 year old stunted fantail.. and the new Ms Piggy.. no-one else really has names in this tank :)

please enjoy :)

They are all gorgeous, Helen, and are so much fun seen in hyper drive for food. My favorite (after Rocky, of course) is the red/white butterfly with the 'stache! :rofl

They are so beautiful! It really is hard to pick favorites in there. I love how the "chocolate" (?) butterflies look though!

Very nice indeed. Your pearlscales seems to be doing really well and they are all so active.

Your red/white butterfly is really pretty.

While you may not believe I'm not missing out by you not talking let me clarify... I have been robbed of a precious opportunity to hear your Aussie accent and therefore have missed out on a very precious moment. I'll spend the remainder of the day moping in class. Just saying.

On the bright side, the fish look stunning. And your pearlie seems to be fitting in very nicely. When did you get that chocolate/purple one? It's a beautiful shade. Of course, Rocky looks darling as always. :)

P.S. - I was just pulling your leg about the whole moping all day. But I really do love your accent. :D

Thanks for sharing :)

Your video made me smile from start to finish. Your fish are all full of personality! Nope, I can't pick a favourite either! They are all beautiful. :)

You have a lot of beautiful fish. You call all those "totts" at 5 plus inches though? That's funny because mine look small compared to yours. I love your pearlscales. I can't imagine mine getting that big but I'm looking forward to it. Yours are so chubby with their short little tail. Does their body just get big and round while their tail stays small? My pearlscale's tail looks longer compared to her body size. Can pearlscales either have long or short tails? Thanks for such a cute video.

Beautiful Stakos. They have such nice color, all of them. I love the chocolately telescope. Really nice :)

And your fat single-tailed pearlscales are to die for. They are the best.
