My surprise new fish.

Recommended Posts

After losing my new Red CT boy I was pretty down last week. I shared what happened and received a very interesting pm from Jim (jha) saying he had a little surprise for me. Wouldn't give me any other info but said he was excited to see this line bred. To say I was surprised and touched by his generosity is an understatement.

The pair arrived yesterday and settled into the barracks well. Have eaten a good feed of black worms and looking eager for the spawn tank. :-).

First the girl. All the photos she looks metallic with a bit of red wash in her anal but IRL she is a metallic PURPLE. Most amazing color but impossible to catch on film. You will have to take my word (Jarrod and Jim are eye witnesses.).

Both fish don't sit still. Hypo. Need a bump for boy. He is pretty special. :-).

Ok. The boy is how he looks. Metallic Grizzled CT ??

Not sure if Jim knew of my relationship with marbles but this boy is amazing. I think these fish mack a fantastic pair and can't wait to see the results. :-)

Again, this guy refuses to sit still.

Great looking fish! Can't wait to see their fry- fingers crossed for you!

How nice of Jim, too; he deserves a pat on the back. :)

I am extremely grateful to Jim and must say the fish were packed perfectly (I took notes lol) and the quality and health of the fish is top notch. I have seen quite a few pairs that Jarrod has purchased from Jim and the fish have always arrive safely and in good health.

I must say, in the time I have been associated with this site (18 mths??), I have met some wonderful people from almost every state in Australia. In this time, on numerous occasions, from many different people, you see random acts of kindness. Such acts can really have a profound effect on the other person.

SHARE THE LOVE. :-)

hats off to Jim for being such an awesome guy :applaud:

they look like a gorgeous pair and the purple will be interesting.

slightly off topic: Busman, i notice you feed alot of blackworms - do you culture them yourself or do you constantly buy live portions?

It took me a long time to try them but now I love em. I usually buy $5 worth each time I go to Fishchicks. Even my community tank gets them. Lol.
