  2. 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.

    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.
  10. My oranda has black marks???

    these are not fish lice

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