Hello, This is what happens when I look at the auctions. I was so good, and stayed away for quite some time, but then someone mentioned fish therapy... Anyway, I decided that I wanted to add some quirky fish to my tank, because those are what really appeals to me. Here are the ones I think I've won. Purple Oranda - I don't know that this fish is purple, and something must have been lost in translation going from Chinese to English . Nevertheless, I really like the unusual color. Plus, how do you resist that face? Black Oranda - I've wanted one forever, and finally decided to go for one. He may not keep his black for too long, but he's nice and chunky, the way I like my orandas to look Calico Ryukin - Ever since I lost Calliope, I've been looking for another calico ryukin. This one has awesome dark calico patterns, which I love. His bent dorsal was probably what made him less expensive than he would have been, but I actually think the bent dorsal adds some personality. Thanks for looking!
Here are some photos of my small 3 goldies that are in my 55 gallon. My five fish (2 are in QT) are fed NLS small goldfish pellets, bloodworms, brine shrimp, duckweed, peas, and lettuce right now. I finally made it all the way through the food thread and will try those things too Just to confirm.. these two fish I think are ryukin actually ARE ryukin right? My blue oranda is getting so fat.... everything's going according to plan! Any advice on keeping the blue on my oranda and ryukin? The first few photos are through the side of the tub I took outside for photos which is why they look hazy. Didn't want to stress the fish by holding them too much... I love these goofy guys or girls! I am recently obsessed with ryukin but until I get a bigger tank, its just 5 for me.
