Sids are so cool!!!

I was supposed to get sids this week from one lfs, but that fell through. Luckily, I happened to find more at another lfs and picked up three. They are so cool! They are very tiny, at only an 3/4 to one inch, but I don't think that will last. They started eating bloodworms almost as soon as they got out of the bag. Its hilarious watching these active little guys swimming around with a bloodworm hanging out if its tiny mouth. It reminds me of the cartoon image of a dog running down the street with a string of hot dogs hanging out of its mouth. Now, they all have little pot bellies. I have never seen fish fatten up so fast. I noticed after I got them home that the largest one only has one eye. I missed that while checking them over at the store.I guess that's easy when the eye is the size of a period. I thought about taking him back, but he is so cute. The eye area is healed over and it doesn't seem to hinder him in any way. I know now, I'm going to have to buy more of these little jewels if I see them.
