I Blame Cheryl and the MagiKarp!

Recommended Posts

All this talk of orandas lately has made me realize how much I miss not having a single oranda in my tanks, even though these fish are my favorites.

Funny enough, yesterday I went to Petco to redeem a coupon (plant), I saw some nice orandas in the koi tank. This is quite unusual for our Petco, as they tend to only bring in smaller fish. These guys are a great size, and equal to what would have been $35 at Petsmart. They were only $18! I quickly spotted one that just looked so awesome. I didn't get him though, telling myself that I didn't want to set up a new QT, etc etc. I was ready not to do anything, except I was talking to Pearlscaleperfect, who was NOT helping the situation. :rofl

So, long story short, this beautiful oranda is in QT, with 0.3% salt and PraziPro. We've already had one mishap where a brand new QT leaked, but everything seems to be going fine now. Please wish us luck, and an uneventful QT. :)

He does not have a name yet. I am leaning towards Anomander.

These were some of the fish's reactions upon learning that I brough home a new fish. :rofl

YAY!!! :whistle I knew you'd leave them. You can join me and ashlee by making your life motto 'will make room for more fish'. It's a really pretty oranda, definitely 18 bucks well spent.
