So I've switched up my old Platy tank to this

And after spending all of today searching I found two in inhabitants for it.

A tiny silver oranda and an equally tiny white butterfly. They took a lot of finding but its was worth it :)

The setup is really beautiful, Tom! :)

The silver is actually a blue, in goldfish-speak. :rofl

:rofl It's like that blue-gray color in cats and dogs is technically just "blue." :P

Gosh reminds me of the night I officially left the Facebook world... :madrant

They are so tiny! It always blows my mind how small they are when they're young :o

It's funny because I've only ever kept goldfish as a kid before now, so as you can imagine...they didn't live long. Seeing adult fish blows my mind because I'm used to these tiny babies

Also, name ideas would be great :P

Tom, I think that's true for a lot of people, which is why people think that we are crazy for recommending 60-80L per goldfish. They don't see that some goldfish will grow to 1/3 to 1/2 of a kilogram, and more.

I don't think I realized how tiny they are, until I saw the blue guy next to the planter in the third picture! Oh my goodness, he's itty bitty!!! :wub:

Congrats!
