This is Ginko. He is a special kid. One of his eyes never developed past newborn stage. There is a wee tiny eye in there that can move in its socket, but it is not functional. I noticed there was something wrong with him when he was just a little kid because come feeding time he would swim horizontally. He was using his good eye to scan the bottom of the tank for foods :P Now he always swims at a bit of a tilt. He is absolutely healthy in every other way. I think it must have been an off chance genetic mutation. He had about 70 siblings and not a single one of them had any birth defects.

He's Styx's fishy :D

He hides in the giant moss glob in his tank sometimes. He thinks he is sneaky.
