New kid in town

Recommended Posts

Despite my better judgement, I went ahead and picked up a new fish at PetCo. Thankfully this little bronze oranda with just a hint of a wen caught my eye, so I decided to bring this little 2.5 inch baby home. He's settled to Spots former tub quite nicely for his quarantine. Don't have a name for him yet though.


Pardon the cloudiness. I shot it through the side of a transluscent tub.

Awww... Cute!

2.5" isn't TOO small. All mine are ~ 1" usually.

His wen will probably stay quite compact - I have a ranchu like that. What a pretty oranda!

I'll give him plenty of protein and hope for the best. Heck I'd be thrilled if he'd just stay that color.

After a couple of days he seems to have settled down, and learned the "Feed me!" dance. :)

 

So would this be a good time to give him a Prazi treatment?
 

 

Oh, any name suggestions? :)

Congrats on the new addition!

 

And my advice for naming your cutie-fin fish is:

1. Ask it telepathically what it wants to me called (this only worked twice with 17 fish, and the ones that responded were bigger). 

2. Ask your favorite 5 to 7 year old to help you name it.

Thanks guys. He's gotten over his fear of me. But now I've got to train him not to eat from the surface. He snaps up the pellets as soon as they touch the water. :/

But at least he recognized Repashy as food now. :)
