I can't believe how much they have grown and changed in such a short period of time. :)

These pics are 5 months apart. I cannot believe how much my babies have changed!

I like how the orange has filled in, and the color has become so vibrant on Dottie

Fiona when I got her 5 weeks ago, and Fiona now. I think she has fattened up quite nicely for such a short period of time (and her wen is growing too, especially in the front) YAY :clapping:

In the beginning, there was a little Kappa. . .  (April 22, 2014)

And now, there is a big Kappa.  :pease:  (January 2, 2015)

So I have a 29g dirted aquarium. It inhabits Kappa and 2 BN plecos. I have a Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter with a GPH of 240 and an Aqueon Quiet Flow 55/75 with GPH of 400. I feed 2 or 3 times daily with Omega One small sinking pellets, NLS small goldfish pellets, and 3 algae wafers at night. Occasionally, I feed FBW and Green Seaweed.

I really enjoyed this thread, so I thought I'd post a couple of mine here as well. Everyone's fish photos are amazing!!!  :heart

 

The first is my butterfly telescope, Shadow. I've had him since August 2014. He hasn't grown a whole lot in size, but he's changed a lot in appearance:

Next is my small fantail, Trinket that I got in January 2014. He is my slowest growing goldfish. Even though it's slow, I still see signs that he is growing.

That's correct... it was devoured shortly after the video was taken. I thought a pearlscale couldn't possibly be fast enough to catch a ghost shrimp... I thought wrong.

Oh no! I wouldn't have thought a goldfish that small could have eaten it either!  :yikes

I love seeing everyone's pics! This is my comet Kaji when I first got him as a baby and now (about 1.5 yrs later). He's next to the same ornament and the butterfly (white in the first pic, green with algae in the second) really gives away the scale.

I can never get good photos, but here are some before and after of my crew.  The first is them in October 2013, the others are from today.

 

 

They were pretty itty bitty here, both less than 10 grams.  Thats a 10 gallon they are in.

Here they are today, about 18 months older.  I weighed them a month ago and got 60 grams for Bronco (all orange) and 90 grams for Zoom (calico) and Elsa (ranchu hiding behind Zoom).  Zoom and Elsa have such big bellies compared to Bronco.  She's my svelte little fantail.  They're all about 3 inches long, body only.

I kind of liked this photo of Zoom and the typical Bronco photo...
