Been playing paparazzi again tonight .... Hope you guys enjoy....sorry I posted some of the blurry one's but in those you can see their ...
I hate you. j/k
I have decided in the last few days that my favorite Tetra, and perhaps fav. fresh water fish is the Emperor Tetra and I want them.
Very nice pictures and thank you for you time and dedication to helping and sharing.
Very nice looking fish. Have been contemplating these fish for some time and the photos have confirmed that I must have some. One of the photos pictured blue eyes . Do their eyes appear blue or was it the way light hit them? Always been a sucker for blue eyes.
You know for THE LONGEST time I was totally torn between them & Kerri Tetras; since the bodies are the same but coloration is diff....Now I'm happy with what I got
I need to do gardening this weekend thou the Rotala is so long again; its actually blocking the greater left side of the tank's light right now and that ain't good for the tiger lotus.
1077; no their have indeed blue eyes but 9 outta 10 pictures I couldn't get them to show right; actually when watched live for a while dep on the angle their're turning they shimmer green and then BAM this beautiful blue.
Romand I couldn't wait to see some of your tank/ fish pictures!!!
Oh, I love them! And talk about paparazzi, I have, oh, ATM 250 photos in my aquarium photo file. Granted, half of them are blurry bc we have to take a dozen to get one clear shot but hey, it's worth the effort.
Lisa the fine leaf stem plant? That's Rotala Indica - Grows like WEED in my 45g - Check out some of my aquarium log pictures from the first one to now in the whole tank....It grew crazy; I should have trimmed it ~4" today but bathrm paint took prio so I'll let it go till tomorrow
And yes the Tetras LOVE going in & outta there
