What lovely fish. Why do people get fish they're not gonna give them the care and attention they need. Would love to see some pictures when they get back to their true glory. Well done you.

Just stunning...Congratulations!

(on a side note, the pics are a bit too large & may need resizing down a bit, unless it is just my computer.)
