Yup, new fish! (v. picture heavy)

Recommended Posts

With my big fish going out into the pond I suddenly found myself with a lot more space in my tanks. I told myself I was going to go to the LFSs and get fish that I actually got to see before I bought them for once, since all my others came from online auctions.

Buuut I didn't get that far.

While doing my usually sweep of fish auctions I found one for 5 fish - 2 shubunkins, 1 pearlscale, 1 veiltail and a black moor. I put a watch on it out of curiosity to see how high the price would go. With 2 mins left, the bidding was only at $35. I put a bid on, thinking someone would outbid me. It didn't happen. :rofl

I spent a couple of days fretting over my impulse buy, but when they arrived on the 27th of February I was so so glad I got them. <3 They're SO tiny I couldn't believe it. And so cute. :happydance

My naming themes this year are Game of Thrones and The Hobbit.

The black moor! Benjen!

I'm super happy with him(/her). He has massive eyes and I've always wanted a moor with giant bouncy eyes lol :rofl He's got long fins and will be a good match for Henry when he grows up.

The Veil, Tywin! Slowly gaining more white...

The pearlscale, Arry! Originally thought to be a girl, turned out he has breeding stars already. I am in love with this fish.

The shubunkins~ I've never ever had single tails before so these guys were a huge surprise for me! I can't get over how fast they are, and so agile!

Fili! Definitely a boy. He has breeding stars everywhere! He's got a really strange tail that annoys me because I can't work out what's up with it. But he's so cute I forgive him haha

And a few group shots!

These are Saki-hikari pellets they're eating. They look huge next to the tiny fish.

AND then! There's the other guy.

I went to the LFS a week later to get bloodworms and spent half an hour staring at the tank of white fantails. They were so cute! I wanted a comet, but they looked a bit ill whereas the fans were happy and friendly.

I finally made up my mind and came home with one. I picked the happiest one with the longest body and longest fins, as well as adorable markings.

He was super happy and tried eat my finger through the bag. By the time I got home I was completely smitten.

This is Ghost! The apple of my eye.

Oh wow, they all are so beautiful! That fantail is gorgeous, it is quite long bodied though, isn't it? Reminds me a bit of a watonai http://www.raingarden.us/9055e.JPG

But maybe he's just skinny from the LFS :D

You will see!

And welcome to the world of the most gorgeous single tails :D These guys are awesome :D

Thank you! :D

I did ask the guy there if they were from long bodied stock, hoping they would be similar to watonai, as that particular store breeds their own fish. He said the parents are quite round bodied, sooo I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Imma just squeeze Ghost in the current one... He'll fit I'm sure of it! He's only very tiny after all :rofl

Cute cute cute! I can't even imagine how fun it would be to get that many fish at once -- I've never had that much space available at one time!

It's exciting for sure! Though getting one fish at a time stops you picking favourites straight away :P

I only juuuust have space for them, It'll be easier when the Shubs are big enough for the pond.
