  1. i have to get reading all the posts in this thread.. and i will do that before the new year. my Christmas gift from my buddy Amanda (FishyMandy) arrived well ahead of time. since we're used to sending things back n forth she and i, well... i stupidly neglected to think that she may be my assigned buddy! so i opened it up when received and ate half the chocolates my gift consisted of something i lack in skills myself, but something i treasure a lot, art. Amanda took inspiration from photos i have shared with kokos and on fb of my fish and painted them with great detail and accuracy she even dressed the envelope with her wonderful talent can't seem to upload more than 1 photo and i have 6 photos to share.

    ok, count me in remember, i am in AU, anything heavy costs more to send. i appreciate anything. it's the thought which counts. i absolutely love 80% dark chocolate (or darker).

    they are/were not lice. these are lice: not sure what your fish had going there, but it was not lice. i have detached lice from fish (hence their removal from the host and onto a plate), they are not difficult to pluck off with tweezers or with a scrape of your fingernail.
  9. My oranda has black marks???

    these are not fish lice

  12. Bubble Eye

    it is genetically modified via selective breeding.. which will answer your question for all ornamental fish as well as other animals.
  13. Bubble Eye

    i wouldn't think so, despite their awkward shape, they are active and agile swimmers. planning to care for them by providing an environment with no sharp or pointy edges/corners in order to avoid their bubbles from bursting is about the only 'warning' that comes with owning bubble eye fish -never heard anything relating to pain due to their body shape. other than that, they have poor eyesight which has been carried down from their primary breed being the telescope. so they wouldn't do well with super aggressive breeds during feeding times mainly.. ie, more advantaged, speedier fish like single tails, ryukins etc would not make compatible tank mates. i would probably keep them with telescopes, celestials, pearlscales.. the more docile derp derp kinda fish friend.
