I Got Me A New Calico Lionhead(?) Today

Recommended Posts

So I was out and about today and just happened to pass one of my lfs's,

ya know....as you do accidently on purpose :teehee:blush:

And the tank that I got Chu'y from had one last (what I thought was a) Ranchu in.

So he obviously had to come home with me :rofl

He is gorgeous and the same size as Chu'y.

Most likely the last of that batch from when I got Chu'y.

But then after bringing him home and comparing him with Chu'y this new one has a flat back

where Chu'y has a very curved back.

So Im thinking that he most be a Lion Head or more than likely maybe a Cross.

Neither him or Chu have any Serious Wen growth so I cant compare that.

I also got a lovely Orange Oranda thats a good few inches long.

1st time Iv never bought one as a little Baby.

But she was the only Oranda left in that other tank and she is just the same as my one that died this week but missing the black Moustache.

I will try and get a pic later tonight.

Thanks O Y F.

Yeah Im well pleased with him. Hes about 3inches long and the Oranda is about 3 n half, including tail.

They did have little 1 n half Ranchu/Lionhead Orange babies and I do like getting my fish from little babies so I can watch them grow but I saw the bigger Calico on his own and had to have him.

Oh thanks alot Guys. :D

Next to the tank that the Calico was in was another 3ft tank with about 20 Ryukins and Fantails and as I was watching them looking for a nice looking "Humpy" Ryukin out popped the Orange Oranda, the only one in the tank, and he looks just the same (bar the black moustache) as the lovely smaller fella I lost a few days ago, just bigger.

So he just had to come home with me too, LoL

And so far so good all seems well.

They'v been a bit surface floaty at times but gave them half a pea each yesterday and half today and the tank is salted so hopefully that should go in time. :)

I'd say he's a Lionhead. Not much of a tail tuck, yet. But that could change, I suppose. He's great, either way. :D
