The First Fish!

Hi everyone! Today is the day!  After waiting for four weeks I have finally added my first fish. 

Here are a few pics.

This was him just getting home.  I know I didn't get his face, but I was trying to hurry so he wouldn't be as stressed out. 

Here he is in the acclimation bucket.  I used the drip method.  It came highly recommended. 

Then here we have a video of me putting him into the tank.

And one more pic of him swimming around. 

What we have here is a male Dwarf Gourami.  His age is estimated at around 6 months or so.  That is if I can rely on the info I got from the pet store.  He is currently swimming around getting used to his new home.  Love it!


  1. he just need some friends :-)

    1. I know, I can't wait to get more!!! I'm hoping I'll be able to order a school of cardinal tetras next week.
