Sometimes the little ones surprise you

Recommended Posts

In my "pet store trough" where I put fry culled from a stock that have pet potential this little guy stood out. It was sunny, all the other fish in the tub were hiding from my silhouette against the bright sky and this little guy kept on his merry way.

Turns out both eyes are long gone, genetics or removed by its siblings, will never be known. It is by far the smallest and blackest of this black Oranda spawn, now if I could just get the tail and color this good on the rest of the stock, things would be too easy.

It has already been under ice once this year, so far it's a hardy little guy.

I saw the video.  Fabulous tail!  Something tells me he doesn't just have pet potential.  He is a pet. :)

He's great, and has so much character both in looks and story. If I lived anywhere close, I would be thinking that I seriously want this fishy :D
