Due to the high cost of angelfish, every one I have brought home has been young and tiny. (So I can buy them cheaper.) Most of them were no bigger than a quarter, counting only the main body, not the large fins. So I've had the chance to watch them grow from very tiny to pretty good size. And boy, do they grow. They have grown faster than any fish I've ever had.
But now, something new has happened. My two oldest angelfish have started to have some orange/gold develop on their bodies. I was kind of shocked at first. One day they were black and white, and the next day they have this beautiful orange/gold color. Let's go to the pictures!
This one is my oldest.
You can see the orange/gold on the nose and dorsal fin. It's like highlights for fish.
Here's a picture really close up.
This one is my second oldest.
If it does, you know I'll post about it here. I love talking about my fish. It's my thing.
