Mine were able to recognize me and had my watonai and fantail not started approaching me immediately after I returned them to the 75g, the new comet and shub would still cower in the corner as they are still ridiculously shy but with the appearance of my old goldies, the new ones were able to join the fun and able to face me without panicking around. I bought my watonai and fantail last May and they had garnered at least 2 inches in size since I bought them and they were already attached to me.
o.o my friend showed me that. Sorry Dx iam sorry. Dx but if you can handle them. What do you mean gently? can you "massage" their bellies? Pet their head softly?
