I Caved, Here's A New Fish...

Recommended Posts

I went to look at the local fish and there were only 4 there. I stopped and looked and thought they were cute but nothing special. Then I went to a movie and I couldn't get this one little one out of my head. I go back and a little 5 year old is asking his mom for him. She's apprehensive so I claimed him while she debated.

I walked home (4 miles) with him and we had a good bit of bonding time. I was going to avoid naming him until I got home and could give him a japanese name, but for some reason I started calling him Frankie. So, here's Frankie.

He was labelled as a Ryukin, but I think he's a fantail, what do you guys think? Sorry about the less than perfect quality.

This is me and my colors

My colors are a bit muted when the flash is on

Well, the five year old was looking at hamsters when I made the move. I remember hearing the mom say, 'honey I guess someone else bought him.' then reluctantly 'do you want another fish?'...The little kid threw a tantrum and starting screaming how he wanted that exact fish. Teehee, I don't feel bad about this at all. So, in a way, Frankie was a premonition rescue. (I'm trying to justify this, I really am.)

Frankie just adds that 'something' that was missing from the tank...I don't know if anyone knows what I mean by that. I have a white, a black, a chocolate, an orange, and a calico with red (a blend of the others). He just... fits. I hope he grows up like Mars. He's so much fuller and longer tailed than Mars was at his size.

OMG, that was ADORABLE!! Mars is so the king of the tank. They were over in the right corner begging for food. Mars suddenly swims quickly to the left and everyone follows right in line! It was so cute. Now they're all on the left.

I am still trying to figure out why I named him Frankie.

Edit to add: They are all back on the right, *giggles*

I was wondering how to describe that color, thank you. It's almost like a darkish grey, but more blue tinted. I recently moved them. They were on the dining room table, since I never use it, but it was too hard to do water changes so I moved them by the window (hence the new pics, in another thread, I need to stop).

Devs, I agree, there's nothing wrong with him being a fantail. I've seen what a gawky little Mars has grown into (and continues to grow into) and I'm beyond content with how he's turned out. I hope Frankie keeps his colors. He has no officially stolen my heart, the little brat.
