    Telescope "Steve" , need help maybe?!?

    i would still recommend a close up of that mouth though, it just doesn't look right to me, not that fact that it's stuck open, but like Taryl said it looks red.Has he ever been treated for flukes? Wow, what a crazy weekend, my daughter had 5 hockey games in 2 days, so I apologize not getting back to this sooner. His mouth is not red, it is orange. I guess it's just a REALLY bad picture. I am trying to get my digital camera to talk to my lap top so I can post better pictures. Steve has never ben treated for flukes, but on a happier note, Steve's right eye may be fine, the white on it looked very clear yesterday. I will try to get better pictures.

    Just a small update: Steve seems to be doing fine, I forgot to bring my parameters to work to fill in here, but everything was great. He seems to get enough food, I still think he may be blind in the right eye, and he is definitely has a deformed mouth. His mouth never closes, it looks like a vacuum tube. It does not seen to bother him as he still eats as much as he can. Reminds me of a stingray, he sort of just sucks up the pellets.
  3. Congrat's very beautiful goldies and a great picture.

    There is not time that these began as I just purchased him on June 28th, I believe I got him that way. Arctic Mama, I understand why you asked for the information. I will get it tonight (been away a few days), I didn't know if someone could tell about the blind by just looking at his eye. I don't have a working camera at this time, so the pictures are from my phone. If you look closely you can see his mouth does not close. I thing it's a deformity. That would be fine with me, he seems to get enough food, sort of sucks it up like a vacuum.

    I work at a lumber yard, selling everything you need to build or renovate a home. As stated above on a concrete slab you will be fine.
  11. So he is my situation, my daughters telescope Steve, I was watching closely last night as I was worried my Oranda wasn't letting him get enough food. I noticed Steve's right eye seems to have a white almost cloudy film over it. I am wondering if he may be blind in that eye. The other thing I noticed, his mouth does not seem to open completely, it looks like when he's trying to eat the left side remains closed. He does seem to suck up the pellets and get food. Please take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think: Thank you in advance for any help/advice...
