Waterfaller: All your Oranda's are gorgeous. My crowned pearlscale had a "heart" on one of her sides and the other side had a "U" like a horseshoe. It has since faded. :( That would be neat if Lovey keeps her heart. Your blue oranda almost looks black but then in one of the photo's you definatley can see that lovely grey cheek. :) I think everyone's bue oranda's are my favorite's now .....now that I have one. :) (I love them all though)

Added: Waterfaller, I just saw all your other fish. Some from past. They were all beautiful. So sorry for your loss on them. I can't imagine losing a fish for I have not experienced this. You picked out beauties.

tithra: Thanks for getting back on with your info. I kind of feel like I know your fish already. ha ha from youtube. But, maybe not. because I didn't know when you got them. They have a birthday coming up. It's hard to believe you've had hashi a year already, almost. Edie two, wow!

That is really neat. I've had my pearlscale for a year..........coming up in several more days and she's lost her little cute "marks" awhile ago. I hated to see them go. I have a post on her coming up soon to celebrate having her for a year. :)

These are my orandas

Stan:

I got her in October 2010 from petsmart. She is a lemonhead oranda and has only really grown in length. She was about four inches long including tail and is about five now.

Ike:

I got her with Stan. She was this adorable little two inch blue oranda and is now a monster red and white seven inch girl. She was one inch body and one inch tail and is now four inches body and three inches tail. I adore this fish so much.

And the boy I got to be Ike's mate. I got him in February. It feels like much longer than that. He hasn't grown enough for me to notice a difference. He did have a wen injury that cleared up in qt. I got him because Alex refused to give me his oranda :P

Ashley: Thanks for posting your beautiful Oranda's. I knew you had some also. I believe you had told me that you had a blue that turned red and white. That's just crazy. Especially when people buy them big, pay a lot of money for a specific fish and then it change colors on him/her. All your fish are adorable.

Blubblublub: Your little Oranda has gotten fat. So cute. You can try frozen bloodworms to get the wen growing. I've been feeding my other Oranda's along with my new one frozen bloodworms every other day along with a recently new pellet, Hikari Lionhead. This pellet is suppose to be great on fish with wens. It most likely needs to be ordered on line. I don't know your wc schedule but I believe doing big 80% weekly or even closer to together is great for growth of a fish. It of course depends on the genes of the fish also.

I have been giving frozen bloodworms minimum once a week, sometimes every other day. Currently feeding New Life as the main food but it seems to give them a yellow tint. Heard of Hikari but don't have it yet.. I hope that will do the trick. As for water changes I do 80-90% at least twice a week, sometimes more. Unfortunately my water has chloramines so I havent been able to figure out if its better to change less water because of that or keep doing what I'm doing. I'm trying to get a canister too but that's another story. I don't care for a HUGE wen but I do want a little "cap" :) WEN WILL THE WEN GROW! :teehee

Aw thank you hes still in my heart... I loved that fish :)

Koko: They were all gorgeous even the black who I thought was blue. I don't see you on much. At least not posting. You must be extremely busy with Justine. The months with her will seem to even go by faster once she starts crawling. You'll be chasing her around to make sure she stays safe. I love seeing all the recent photo's you post of her. You both look great in the photo.

She might have been dont remember much though :lol im here just cant post much as she requires my attention alot :lol

Just pm me or talk to me in a thread Ill talk when I can .. but im always here :)

Miss ya to hun :hug

How cute.>>>wen will the wen grow. ha ha It sounds like your doing a great job with your fish. It's all in the genetics of the fish also. Some of my fish don't have big gorgeous wens either. I know I've done a lot to help the growth but I am seeing it ever so slowly. Perhaps we need patience. :) ha ha

Tankxie: Welcome to the forum. I don't think I've seen you on here. Your little fish is very adorable. I love her color. Very bright.

Hidr: I didn't know you had a bunch of Oranda's in the past. They were all beautiful. It looked like you had a Blue Oranda also. So sorry for the loss of them all.

Luna is a little cutie also.
