Butterfly telescope surprise (pic heavy)

As an early birthday present, my bf surprised me today with a 100 gallon stock tank for my current calico butterfly teles along with 3 new baby ones for my :o

I rehomed my four common goldfish to a pond (a real one :P) last month so now all that's in my 50 gallon mini pond are my two calico butterfly teles, one of whom is currently having problems swimming (but being in the pond really helps her). Now with the new stock tank, the two have even more space to swim in~

The thought of having 7 fish is starting to feel like a lot though so even with the space I may end up rehoming one or two. Def. no more fish for me haha. Anyway, here they are, my early bday presents:

This one has a slightly misformed tail but it still looks and swims great:

Are the eyes of your fish in the first pic really that orange/red or is it from the camera flash? Because that's stunning. :o

Happy early birthday! What an awesome gift. I bet having a 100 gallon is going to be tons of fun!
