Wee accident

Recommended Posts

Went hunting for ONE new fish for my bedroom tank - ended up with two, both the WRONG variety than what I went looking for ... MEH

Kirsche (red cap oranda) and Tarako (blue oranda). Both need some TLC and prazi etc. and excuse the sandy tank that was outside, but there they are. Hopefully they can grow up here and be happy. They really stood out among all the others. Yay? YAY!

I tell you, Goldfish Acquisition Syndrome. The struggle is real.

They're adorable and hopefully the quarantine goes smoothly :)

Thanks everyone. They're eating, but it takes a long time. Flukes most likely. Also, I put a lamp so I can observe them, and BOY are they skittish. They don't want to go under where it is at all and they are scared of people. In due time, I suppose.

Lol my fish don't grow out unfortunately. I've had Rhonda over a year and she's 2" and 22 grams. I've had Patiska since I think April and he's like 12 grams.

I am the "tiny fish fishkeeper" lol.

Too many fish, too many tanks!

Rhonda - 15 gallon tub

Citrine - 18 gallon tub

Shembje, Commander, Winslow, and Ulliri - 55 tank

Callisto, Omen, Robin, Patiska, Randy - 70 pond

Haven't decided what to do with these two yet, few different ideas. Didn't mean to get but one. Still have to pass QT.

Pond size upgrade coming soon, may have to squish an extra fish out there. Meh - I'll figure it out!

My poor Boo Boo... Now every time I see a fish that reminds me of her, I get it. I'm surprised Rhonda is still alive. I'm really only a year into this hobby and I'm not a great caretaker and my water is crappy. I won't give up yet, though. Rhonda did give me hope in that regard.

I've kinda wanted a red capped Oranda ever since Phil's sweet Spot warmed me over. What a fighter he is. Picked him first, THEN the blue caught my eye, and instantly I remembered my Boo Boo fish. Really don't have a spot for him, but couldn't leave him. So silly of me! About $9 for both fish. A little sorry looking, but hopefully will perk up.

My receipt says SARASA COMET (red capped Oranda) and CALICO FANTAIL (blue oranda).

Thanks everyone. They're doing pretty good. Tarako is my favorite of the two after being with them for a few days.
