Here’s a little video clip that I recorded after Tango figured out how to eat from my fingers and Techno doing it for the first time.
There were a few pauses when Tango was watching Techno eat and then get all excited when he saw me return to feed him.
Finally got a good photo of Techo:
I had a moment of weakness, and when you see them, I’m sure you’ll understand.
The first one I call Tango. I started calling him Tang, as in the orange power drink as his color is perfect for that.
The second one is the one that caused me the moment of weakness, the one I call Techno, as in “Technicolor.” Actually, he is iridescent changing to different colors in varying light.
That was the best picture I could get. He is very bashful, spending his time in corner.
They say a fat oto is a happy oto. I think this oto is happy.
A friend of mine lives near a creek. After a moderate rain all night long, the creek rose and filled his back yard with running water over two feet deep.
I just threw this rainbow shot in because I thought it looked neat.
My fish, like many others, seem to love getting into tight places. In this case, I had doubled up the panel in a spot where the two fish liked to flare at each other hoping to reduce that just a bit.
Turns out that Red just wanted to get between the panels, going through the “Tunnel of Doom” over and over again.
Don’t worry, Red was always safe, and was able to leave on his own. And after I removed the double panel, he found plenty of other places to get into.
I pulled the camera to document something I was working on and Blue was keenly interested. I held up the camera to the tank and he just had to check it out.
Someone asked me whether my fish were still alive! Yes, they are. And the otos. The plants are bigger, too.
Well, for the first time, I tried to use the selective color feature of my Nikon D5100 DSLR. I must say, it can be an interesting feature properly used. Most of my experiments were total rubbish until I keyed in on the brown of my neighbors dog when I got this result:
