Yeah the second worst swimmer I have is actually Asilah. This guy. He's not nearly as bad as Winslow but he swims with his head pointed down sometimes and he is clumsy and runs into stuff and has a some wen issues. He's slow and awkward as well. Very goofy. He does not FLOAT, but just doesn't move well through the water. He's like 3+ years old.

Over the years I have noticed that Orandas with very big wens seem not to be able to swim as gracefully as other fish with not such a big wen :) I love there faces but man I hate to see the struggle :(

Yeah I don't think I'll get anymore CAPPED type of Orandas. The ones with the wens surrounding their faces are cuter and they don't have the weird swimming issues the capped types do.

Yea, I don't think I'll get an oranda again, I love them but Im always paranoid about wen issues and now swimming issues lol. But who knows, I said I'd never get a pearlscale as well :rofl But Luka has been my only wenned fish in 9 years of having goldies.

I have lots of mush now, but again I'm only interested in the rounded mush... Not the all on top mush. I much prefer Ryukins and Fantails anyway. I wanted a Ranchu but they keep DYING within days of getting them so forget it. 

And by far the fish with the most drastic change I have is Mr. Ulliri

Special little man. After weeks of complaining about a particularly bad case of ich at the local big box store... He still didn't have the ich when most had died or were covered. His will to live and the fact that given time he would suffer the same fate made me pick him.

He's just the tiny ugly brown fish amongst all the bigger more colorful fish. Nobody wanted him. I didn't either really but I just felt he deserved love and a chance after all he went through. Tough boy. Never been sick and is a good and gentle boy.

He was olive and so I named him Ulliri (Ooo-LEE-Vee). The fact that he's a cool color now is funny because it is just part of him defying everything.

This fish I've had the longest. I made many mistakes with some of my first fish. He never grew well but he's still alive. I got him May 2016. Patiska. He's a red based calico fantail.
