A day to celebrate our oceans and raise awareness for their conservation!
LOL. the way you put that cracked me up. I don’t think radar is a true rose tail, or maybe he’s just constantly tail flaring or smth that spreads his folds out. that would explain his rips.
he has a few rips that resemble flare rips. that’s not just him being a rose tail. those are flare rips. maybe they were old and the fin’s tears didn’t grow back or something. understandable.
here’s the thing, though
this pic of radar is recent: link
his dorsal is in shreds. looks like a mixture of flaring and tail biting.
here’s some pics for reference:
… First of all, there is NOTHING wrong with Radar’s fins. Nothing happened to him, how dare you try to claim I’m treating my fish horribly simply to prove I’m ‘not trustworthy’. I have observed him since he came to me and his fins have not changed and there is NOTHING wrong with them. He does NOT have fin rot.
nope. he has flare rips and maybe bites that could potentially lead to fin rot. personally that doesn’t look like fin rot but I could be wrong.
WHY are people talking about my fish behind my back??
His fins are NOT ripped or torn, the edges are NOT raw. His dorsal fin has always had that shape. His fins are exactly the same as they were when he came out of his little baggie from Thailand, so if something happened before that I was not aware of it.
It isn’t visible in all the pictures, but his dorsal as ALWAYS been shaped like this, with dips between the rays:
There is no ripping there. That bit is just often covered up by his other fin. That’s why it’s hard to see in his aquabid picture.
BUT WITH THAT BEING SAID, why the actual fuck are you people analyzing how my fish looks anyway?
Why in the hell do I have to justify how my fish looks to you? Why do you give a shit, he’s my fish! Do you really have nothing better to do than to sit there and analyze the fins of someone else’s fish that you have never actually observed, only seen over the internet, and shit on them for how that fish looks?
There is nothing wrong with my fish. If there was, I would take care of it. You arguing about if there is or isn’t something wrong is pointless and petty because you don’t own him. All you’re doing is looking for more ammunition to use against me and exploiting my fish in the process.
Radar is perfectly fine. :| stop harassing her for her fish when the fish is fine.
People are mean and hateful for no other reason than to be mean and hateful, Radar is GORGEOUS!! You are a great aquarist and the anon of the internet shouldn’t matter I am truly sorry you have to be grilled and your fish scrutinized.
Sorry there haven’t been many updates on my tank this week everyone I have been prepping a new 150 gallon show tank give me another couple days and I should be ready to show the beginning of my build!
