Singing the Blues

Lenny, the Paradise Gourami, has been renamed Herman, and moved to a larger bowl with some living plants in it.  He must be happy because his fins have turned from pale white to bright blue and he moves about more.

Much better!  I THOUGHT he looked like a gourami.  Now he really does!

Thank you Karen....Gourami, not whatever I called him before.

Doesn't look like the same fish. The second one looks like a male beta. Good luck to him. Paula

Are you sure it is the same fish?  Maybe the first one died, and nobody wanted to get the good old folks sad, so the flushed Lenny down the toilet and bought Herman and tried to pass him off.  Anyway, it looks like Herman needs more room in there!  Oh well, not your responsiblity anymore! -Krissy

Herman is beautiful!!  He looks very much like my old Gus.  Gus lived for about six years until I gave him away a couple of years ago.  He was a hearty fellow.  Who knows, maybe he is still alive.  Herman is a beta...also known as a Japanese fighting fish.  They are very friendly.  Keep them in low light.  Isn't he beautiful!?!! xox
