Oh well, if even one person manages to find something interesting or informative, it was worth the while! So here goes. Every month I'll feature a different fishy until I run out of fish. Then I'll come up with a new idea.
Mikau was my first male fish from Aquabid.com and he is quite possibly my most beautiful fish. His listing described him as a green dragon halfmoon though I've come to learn that in Thailand they consider teal or light blue green. He is named after a character in Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, a zora who dies and is reincarnated into a mask that Link (the main character) can wear to turn into a Zora. I chose this name because Mikau is in love with Lulu, a female zora who I named my green dragon girl after who I wanted to one day spawn with Mikau. He gets to be my first feature fish for June because he's gorgeous and he's so photogenic! :P
When he arrived, he wasn't in tip top shape. His fin colors were faded and he had a circular scar on his left side. Once he got acclimated to his new home, though, his colors perked right up and I'm just hoping his scales will grow back.
|Thank you for the log, mommy!|
Some people had warned of these logs causing fin tears but Mikau hasn't had a single problem with his log. It's where I feed him more often than not since it has an opening in the top. It also harbors his unintentional snail tank mates.
And now for some pictures and a video of Mikau and how he swims. :)
