Got A New Baby!..delicious Chocolate Lionhead..

Recommended Posts

Alrite everyone around has been getting chocolate cute looking fish....I have been longing for a chocolate fish all the time...and after looking at Kahlua and Toby..I really really wanted a chocolate oranda.. :exactly Well, I couldn't wait so I asked my lfs if they expect some chocolate orandas in near future...and then after a cople of days they called me to just let me know that they ordered a few chocolate goldfish and if I would love to come and check them out... :rolleyes: which was so awesome on their part...and I could not make it to the lfs by their closing time, but still I took a chance and went there to try my luck...and they were still OPEN....I went in and checked out the goldfish tank..AWWWWWW...I saw 2 lil chocolate orandas and 4 chocolate lionheads...they all looked so cute...I really wanted all the lionheads...I had never seen a lionhead personally...they had the cutest baby face...they all looked like cute little pigs...I wish I could get all of them..but I really could not...I picked this lil guy... :newfish ..he was the most active amongst them..and kept playing on his own...when I looked at him..he just stayed there..looked back and when i tapped my finger on the tank..he swam away with his butt wiggling, turned back and kept looking from a distance...I knew I wanted him... :bingo: He has the cutest cheeks...On the way back home he kept swimming in the bag...when I got him home..he just tried to swim thru the bag into the tank..very very active...I named him Chikoo/Cheeku..of course for his awesome cheeks and also the Sapodilla fruit, which is a brown fruit, is called chiku or chikoo in Hindi (India)...Chikoo, in hindi, is also used to pamper babies as in Pumpkin... :heart ..so I could not have a better name for this lil guy...I will post pictures tonight...I got him 3-4 days back..I really had him in the QT tank for only a couple of days..I deserve the Koko stick for this.. :blink: but I really could not stand to see him in the QT alone... :cry1 and my betta in the bowl... :( I promise I observed him really well...and he is very healthy and happy...I transferred him to Sunshine's tank and they are a happy couple...they swim and play...Sunshine is being a bit snobbish but Chikoo only tries to play with her if she is in the mood..If he finds she is not...he plays on his own in the bubbles..he really really enjoys the bubbles..Its hilarious to see him swim through the bubbles and swim through all the little pebbles I have on the bottom...Lionheads really swim in a funny way...he is the awesomest fish I have seen in person...very very cute...

AWW..thanks so much Franky...yeah I fell for him instantly...he was really meant to happen...sheer luck...

I was at the same lfs just looking around...and I realized they had awesome beta fishies...I was looking at the shelf...pretty crowntails...orange and other beautiful colors...I knew I wanted one..I was trying to make up my mind..when I saw two guys behind the shelf just sitting there alone..I went behind the shelf to check them out...both were pretty white betas...my Frosty and another one more like a panda beta..black and white....They were sitting in ammonia water...it had turned all yellow..no kidding absolute yellow colored water...I saw this guy and fell for him instantly..and hated him to see in that condition...I took the lil container...and asked the store lady if I could get him...and she said He is not for sale, we have been saving him for someone. And my heart broke.. :cry1 ..she saw my small face and asked me to wait while she checks if they have any entry in their contact request list for that lil guy....After sometime she came back to me and said she had no records and I can have him...I was sooooo sooo happy...and I also requested them to change the other beta's water too...I really didnt like the fact that just becos they were somewhere in the back not for sale...they haven't been taken care of...Usually that lfs is not so careless...but well it happened...Frosty was meant to be with me...and he is awesome...he enjoys his lil mushroom castle.. :rolleyes: ..

I just realized aren't we not all so proud of our babies???..I really feel like I am a mom...always observing them...describing everyone what they do..and their personalities...I really love all you guys...so much in love with this hobby..I am so so glad I am a part of this community now.. :) ..and I really don't think anyone else would ever understand this passion...

I love the name - it's perfect! Now you've got me jealous because I'm loving the lionheads and ranchus lately. Honestly, I just love EVERYTHING and want one of everything that exists!! But seriously there's a really cute lionhead I am in love with in the auction right now, so more than ever I am excited about your new fish.. Soooo CUTE! Good luck with him : )
