Look at what I sniped! :D

Recommended Posts

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... :wa

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 :rofl. 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.

They are GREAT choices! I know you have no plans on breeding right now but that ryu has potential in that area, and of course the compact body on the BO would we wonderful as well.

We all know I know love long bodies (been with ponds too long :lol) So my fave is the 'purple' What is that scale damage on the 2 scales in that one pic?

You got it?! The purple!? I had been eyeing that one myself but did not have the funds... I wanted it so terribly! That's one of my favorite color variations. Congrats on all three, as they are all gorgeous. I'll look forward to seeing them in your tank!

They all have Halloween colors so you can just say they're Halloween presents to yourself!! :D

Fish therapy is a blessing and a curse... But don't worry we will enable you!! So all is well in the world.

The black Oranda is sooooo chubby and adorable. I saw that calico Ryukin and if I had room . . . . I love the color pattern on that fish.

Congrats on all three! Very nice. :)

They are amazing. I can't wait to see the purple oranda in your tank, and that calico is SICKENING! You are so lucky that I my pets and school prevent me from tracking you down and stealing that fish. Congrats, Alex, I'm super happy for you and those fish. :)
