My New Baby Baby Baby Fantail.

I picked this little one up yesterday. :heart They had been keeping her on hold for a few weeks now until I started to move the fish into the 85Gal and my living room would look less of a psycho fish room :rofl

I never bought fish from this store before - this is the store where my friend works - they only sell goldies for ponds and sometimes have a few fantails (they are always REAL healthy looking). Well, one day when we were chatting to my friend I couldn't stop looking into the tank where this little one was (with 5other buds) - she was SO active and looked SO happy I just had to have her :oops:

Her coloring seems to be a future red and white - so far the white has a blue tint to it. :)

Names are still open for suggestions. I want something that might recall her tiny size (her body is less that 1/2 an inch!) and something that is unisex ;)

best side view I could get since she is in a QT tub.

she is starting to get less shy and like me since I throw her in a few pebbles all day long. Boy can this baby eat! (and poop!)

EEEEEEEK how cute! That's how it happened with me and Chibi, and here the same with the name choice; something that is based on her size and is unisex, so I called her Chibi :D

Her body is less than half an inch? AAAWWWWWW how tiny is that! Must be like the tiny angelfish I saw at the LFS last night. :)

How about Midget?

Or Mini-Fish? Haha :D

Very cute Federica!

I can't believe how tiny he/she is! My goodness. :blink:

I don't really have any names to contribute though. I'm just loving all this 85gallon newbie news! I may just have to hop on a plane to Switzerland and see them all myself! :D

thanx everyone! SO many good names!

Yea she will be going in the 85 gal - they will be 8 in total assuming the last 2 additions get along with everyone. I might keep her in her own tank a few months so she can put on some inches before she goes in :)

right now they are 5 in the 85gal. I took some more pics today. letme get them up hehehe :angelstaf:

OMG so many good names! how will I choose!?!?! Now I have to go get another 10 of these guys!

She is so cute you guys! I am giving her micro meals all day long - like 2 pellets at a time and veggies etc :D

Today I am starting the Prazi.

Kristi you should see her top fin its insane - soooo nice and tall :whatjust:

I just hope she is a baby and not stunted already. I do think she is a baby tho. For sure she isn't stunted from the store because they had like 5 in an 85+ gal tank.
