Solid Gold Butterflies



After selling almost all of my butterfly telescope fry (who actually aren’t fry anymore!) that I’ve been painstakingly raising for the past 6 months, I’m feeling a little bit of the “empty nester syndrome” setting in.  It’s the perfect time to take stock of the fish that I still have and show them some love! 

Sophie, the mother of all the butterfly telescope babies that I just sold.  She’s huge and keeps growing every day!
Clyde, my show winner and potential father of some or all the butterfly telescope babies that I just sold.
Luca, who I’ve had for 3 years now!  I love his ghostly, shimmery white color with blood red eyes.
Asha, a butterfly telescope that I bred from a fish I used to have named Minai.  He’s about 1.5 years old now.
Here are my seven keepers from my batch of babies!  One of them (near the top) has bean-shaped eyes, so cute.

    It’s great to see what fish you have and which of the \x26quot;fry\x26quot; you have decided to keep. To be honest it was hard to keep track of them all, because there were beautiful butterflies all over the place. 😛

    I’m sure you’ll be swamped with new fry batches in no time. Lol. I really like Asha because he’s from Minai who was really a favorite of mine. 🙂
