Just finding this thread - oh my. . . what a cutie! Ornates are so beautiful. . . Sounds like things are going well in there so far. I second (third? fourth?) the request for a video! Any progress with a name yet?

I know.. I need to get a vid. My sister keep forgeting her camera and I need to backup my phone(64gb and totally full ..even icloud keeps sending me reminders that it's too full to back up lol) so I can get a replacement then I could get better pics and vids. I got some cute ones last night but super blurry. No... I take FOREVER finding names for pets that are name worthy. It'll come to me
All that comes to mind right now is Five O...lol. Like the police ... because she hides like a snake in the grass(watersprite really haha) waiting for a shrimp to come by to murder. You know like how police do the same thing on highways waiting to catch someone speeding. OMG sometimes I can't explain how my brain works. But that name will not stick.

Some super carpy videos I took this morning! Baybay is doing fantastic and not really shy anymore. He/she comes out alot during the day now and has even developed the external gill type things that are sooo pretty. From my research thats a good thing and means there is plenty oxygen in the water..which would explain why I've never really seen Baybay go to the surface for air. (Yes.. I thinks that's gonna be the name...It Kinda sticks.. or Beeeash lol).
Boredomb, Chesh and Perseusmom like this.

Those are excellent videos. I'd like to make a slight correction though, the external gill thing is something all young bichirs have. It aids them so that they don't have to go up for air like the adults do, and as such helps with their survival.

However as they grow older and bigger those things will be absorbed and they will no longer have them. It has nothing to do with the level of oxygen in the water.

Thanks guys! I now need to figure out since it is no longer shy whether I have a femae or male(not that it matters).
Jaysee. These vids are just as bad as my others lol
Sanguinefox, I know that is the norm what you are talking about but I did spend my workday researching this and it is something that can last a long time even into adulthood in water with high oxygen. But maybe a stress free relaxed thing too. It is now obviously as you can see not shy or stressed at all. I love my little Beeeeasch <3

You won't be able to tell that till the darling gets older and quite a bit bigger. It may seem one way or another but the anal fin doesn't reach the final thickness till about a foot or more.

Makes me wonder if that little type is captive bred. There seems to be a difference in the temperament of wild versus caught with these darlings.
