This week I wanted to take a break from writing posts about, well, writing, and share some pictures of my pet butterfly koi fish and his little buddies. I took these with my new camera. It’s a Cannon EOS T6i.
This is Methos: I’ve had him for seven months now. He’s still growing and will be for years to come. That’s why I have him in a huge 125 gallon tank. We had to put the tank in our sun-room because that’s the only place where we have a solid concrete floor to hold it.
(Just look at those lips!)
This is his buddy, Bubbles. She’s a fancy goldfish the same age as him. She still has some growing to do as well. She used to be all black but now she’s getting these really cool gold patches.
Here’s their tank. It’s big, like I said. I went with a Japanese theme since koi are really popular there.
There are a couple other, smaller fish in there. They’re all still growing. If we have to we’ll move some of them to another tank later. I’ll be keeping Methos and Bubbles together, because they seem to be good friends.
So there they are, my little friends. I really enjoy watching them and I’m surprised by how much personality they have. They’re all different from each other.
Feel free to share stories about your pets in the comment section. Have a great day!
