I Like 'Em Big, and I Cannot Lie... (Eyes & Humps, that is LOL)

Recommended Posts

May I please (re)introduce the inhabitants of my 55 gallon non-planted, sand substrate, tank.

Mad-Eye Moody. He is the longest, although he may not be the heaviest. MEM used to have both tele eyes, but about 6 months ago, one just deflated. I don't think he's noticed it, yet. :rofl

Boss Tammy. What can I say? He's just boss! :D

Hyperion. I love his fins, and how he's developed in the last 16 months.

Othello. He is my cheapest, and my proudest. He's five years old, and is the oldest fish that I have. I have had him since he was probably about 3 months old. I hope to enjoy another 10 years with him, at least. I am particularly proud of this update, because I finally managed to take a lot of fairly decent pictures of him.

Because there are too many pictures I'd like to share, I am putting them in a slide show. Thank you for looking! (Watch in HD if you can.)

(And here's a sneak peek into next week's update! :P)

Thank you! I think we are going to have a Chu update week next week between all of us! :rofl

They are so gorgeous! Does the spine curve in the hump or is it a fatty deposit?

Thank you! :)

Ryukin humps are muscle, and is not due to spine curvature. :)
