Solid Gold Butterflies

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! …

75 Gallons of Solid Gold

75 Gallons of Solid Gold

Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OR367NrpkU Clyde and Sophie are losing their black color at a faster rate every day!  Soon Sophie will no longer be a tri-color and Clyde will no longer be a panda… they’ll both be red/white.  It’s looking like Sophie will be mostly red with a white face and a little red spot on…

Beautiful Fish, Artfully Photgraphed

Beautiful Fish, Artfully Photgraphed

As some of you may remember, part of my New Year’s Resolution thisyear was to experiment more with different camera lenses and photographytechniques. For the past year I’ve been coveting the Helios44-3 lens after seeing some photos a relative of mine took using it.The lens is kind of clunky to use with a new Canon…

Ghost Bristols Six Months Later

Ghost Bristols Six Months Later

I’ve officially had my ghost bristol trio for 6 months now!  They were about 8 months old when I got them, so they’re a little over 1 year old now.  Poltergeist is male, Wraith is female, and I believe Haunt is also female.  Poltergeist and Wraith have spawned several times while Haunt just hangs around…

Something’s Fishy about this Valentine

Something’s Fishy about this Valentine

Hello everyone!  In keeping with my tradition of decorating my 75 gallon fish tank for the holidays, here is my Valentine’s Day aquarium.  I didn’t realize this until well after the decorating was all finished and I was filming, but this holiday actually works really well for the bristol shubunkin because of their (sideways) heart-shaped…

Dandy Orandas Butterflies Update

Dandy Orandas Butterflies Update

A few weeks ago I set up my five adult Dandy Orandas butterflies in a 40 gallon tank so we could appreciate them fully for a moment in side-view.  We typically only get to see them from above, since they live in a 127 gallon tub in my basement fish room.  They’re all doing very…

ONE YEAR! | Luca and Felix Update

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I got Luca and Felix, yet at the same time it feels like they’ve always been with me.  Here’s a one year update about them with before-and-after photos and, of course, an adorable video!  They have grown in leaps and bounds and are cuter (and chubbier!)…

Happy New Year + Resolutions!

Happy New Year + Resolutions!

Happy New Year everyone!  Can you believe another year has come and gone and it’s already 2014?  Does anyone have any new year’s resolutions?  I don’t usually do them, but I decided to set a goal for myself in the new year of making more art.  A huge part of drawing is being a keen…

Butterflies in a Bowl…

Butterflies in a Bowl…

These two are my favorites of all the butterflies I have.  They are Minai (a female red/white) and Clyde (a male panda), both from Dandy Orandas.  I hope I can get these two to spawn because I think they’d make beautiful babies.  Aren’t they gorgeous?  I like that their body shapes are full and rounded,…
