Okay, so here’s a mediocre picture of my big guy: you can’t really see from this angle, but he has several scales that are a really light, bright teal strewn across the darker parts, and they look like little stars! That’s why I named him Orion. He also has little spots here and there of a dark maroon, as you can see @ the base of his anal fin and mouth, and his front ventricle fins are all curly and white! Quirky part of him, but handsome nonetheless.
Anyway, he’s adjusting quite well to his new home, and is energetic bordering on hyperactive, which is one of the reasons why I haven’t been able to get very many pictures. Constantly patrolling the tank or playing in the bubble stream from the little air rock I put in the far corner. At first I was worried the bubbles and the current from his filter (which I’ve baffled using a clean disposable shot glass lol) would be too strong for him, but even though there are a bunch of sheltered, still areas, he still spends most of his time swimming around in the choppier parts, so I guess he likes the workout. All in all, Orion is a very spunky, curious and somewhat jumpy guy and I’m glad I adopted him!
