Be careful what you fish for!
Second of my butterfly telescope fry. This darling, also nameless, hasn’t changed much, if any, since it arrived. It’s sweet as can be and hanging in there, but has gained no weight in a month. I may need to try something else to get some weight on it… I hope it’s just a very slow grower.

Frozen brine shrimp was a big help when getting my moor to fatten up a bit!
I once bought a lovely goldfish this very color for $5 at a pond store because her back fin had been chomped off by her tankmates. I took her home and put her in our pond, then in winter I brought her inside and kept her in our 50 gallon tank. She was incredibly fast and friendly. I named her Aberdeen. Her best friend was my pearlscale Georgie Porgie.
When I went to college, I sold Aberdeen to a breeder for $75. Sometime I wish I still had her.
