The I'm Back Update! (V. PIC HEAVY)

Recommended Posts

Where to even begin...

I've been away from Koko's for a while after losing my orandas, been focusing on my birds and ducks instead. But I'm back now, so this is just a general update for all my current fish, excluding the new babies

I don't know whether to include the before&after / growth etc here or on a new thread... D;

I only have one inside tank running at the moment, which is my 200L/40gal. Only two fish in there at the moment - Tywin the veiltail and Ben the black moor. Unfortunately I have a stubborn green dot algae issue and can't take in-tank photos just at the moment... The fish weren't happy about the little tank I had to put them in.

Tywin:

The rest of my fish live in my 750L/200gal pond, which is doing very well now it's got itself probably established. Hoping to get a waterfall or fountain set up for the opposite side to the filter, as well as a few marginal plants for more nitrate control. When I have money and time that is.

So we have, my ranchu Sei and Minke, Sam and Dean's baby Damon (oranda), Fili the shub, Ghost the fantail/comet mess, Arry the pearlscale, Luci the common, Henry the blue tele, and a little mystery fantailed baby who has no name.

First off, Damon. I am SO so glad I kept HER (!!), especially since her parents are gone now. She's super cute and has Dean's amazing tail. <3

Minke. She's doing really well. and I'm very happy with how she's turning out. Finally getting a wen ;D

Sei. It was touch and go for a while there - she didn't seem to like tank life very much, but she's thriving in the pond :D

Arry is the most recent fish to go out to the pond. After the initial settling down period, she seems to be doing just fine.

Fili! When I bought Fili and the the rest of his group, I didn't actually want any shubs and before they arrived was even considering euthing them! D; But luckily I fell in love with him as soon as I opened the box, and here we are today. He grew a wen, really really cute. <3

Tiny baby Lucifer! Whom I bought on a whim from the LFS hoping he'd be a comet. No such luck. Still a cutie! And it'll be nice to have a common to see how giant they really get.

Henry!! I was a little anxious putting Henry out as she's pretty (for lack of a better word) dumb, and I could see her getting into trouble. But no, she's doing just fine. <3

Ghost. Grew too fast to stay inside any longer. :P As it turns out though she loves pond life, all that algae to eat! Omnomnom

She has the coolest tail ever. Sadly couldn't get a clear photo, but the top 2 lobes on her tail have crossed and fused, then twisted so she has both a comet tail and a fan tail.

And last but not least, the baby! I didn't know my fish had even spawned til I saw this little flash of white one day. I have no idea who the parents are, though my guess would be one of the chus and maybe Fili?? I would have guessed Ghost, but she wasn't out til later. It still amazes me that of all the fry that there might have been, the one the survives has a perfect split tail...

Sorry it's a bit untidy ;D Haven't had time to cut the weeds back.

It WAS full of duckweed too, but seems the kiddies were hungry.

I love me some long flowing tail ;D

Thanks! It took me several weeks and much messing around to get it sitting well, and it's still wonky :P

Why can't you put yours in?

Hahahaa he's a bit of a bossy britches, that okay?

It's 200 gal, so not too big really.

Really nice! What's your pond container and where did you get it?

It's a local made brandless product from a town just 30mins away. I found it on trademe (like craigslist). Very helpful, I know.
