Thank you for the comments, I'm sure he'd appreciate them! He does resemble a betta a little, huh? As I explained in a previous thread, I bought him as a baby black moor, completely black, with those nice big bulging eyes. As he grew I noticed his eyes began to flatten and now he was normal looking eyes. It boggles my mind how it happens, and I know it boggles Lupin's mind too. I'm hoping he chimes in soon because I would love to hear if he has any input on the matter.
His ventral fins are just so prominent, nearly 3 inches long. He's about 5 inches not including tail. I've had him 3 years, and I'm guessing when I received him he was probably about 6-7 months old, about an inch long. Does that seem accurate Lupin? I'm thinking he still has not reached full size, and will continue to turn a nice golden yellow over time.
