Secrets No Longer :D [Pictures Galore]

Recommended Posts

Hello :)

I had occasion to get some new fish today. They came from an LFS that has been in operation for 20+ years, and is my favorite. I have to confess that I took a bit of a gamble and added them directly to my 100g, since the owner had been treating his goldfish (separate system from the rest) with Prazi, salt, and metro for the last 4 weeks. It was incredible actually, to see not a single sick looking goldfish in the entire place. Anyway, since the 100g is due for Prazi and salt treatment, I took the chance and added them to the tank. :blush:

Anyway, without further ado, here they are. None has been named yet, and there will be a complete photoshoot of the entire tank coming soon. :P

Ryukin 1: This one is so manly, he even has breeding turbercles above his eyes. My sister actually picked him out.

Ruykin 2: I picked this one, who is another male. He doesn't have as prominent ryukin features as the other, but I love this one :)

Telescope: I fell in love with this one right away. He reminds me of Courtney's Peanut, whom I absolutely adore! :D

Oranda: I believe this color pattern is sometimes referred to as tiger (by goldfishnet anyway). I wasn't planning on getting another oranda, but he just blows me away with the chubby cheeks! :)

LOVE THEM ALL!!!! Hehehe. Also, send the little calico tele directly to me, please... thank you for your cooperation.

Ryukin #1 is quite the little manly stud muffin, isn't he? Beautiful colors & pattern, and nicely shaped fish! I think you should name him Burt Reynolds... cause, come on... what's manlier than Burt Reynolds? Ryu #2 is also quite gorgeous.

Love the chubby cheeks on the Oranda- I hope one of my baby orandas develops cute little cheeks like that!

Edit: Ryu #2 could be Clint Eastwood- yes, Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood...

Oh my god I just about want to swoon over those Ryukins. Gorgeous. I love all the fish but everyone knows I have a soft spot for ryukins. ESPECIALLY red and whites.

Beautiful, healthy looking fish, congratulations!
