  1. Yes I will be setting up a QT in the morning
  2. I was just browsing some secondhand websites and stumbled across an 8 inch female white comet free to a good home, turns out she was bullied by other fish in the tank..long story short, I'm picking her up tomorrow evening!
  3. My little oranda arrived safe and sound, she is so small and cute! Have to say I am impressed with Star Fisheries for their friendly and effective service and good quality fish! Little Suki is in QT and doing well
  4. It won't arrive until Tuesday, this wait is gonna kill me haha
  5. I'm so excited I have to tell someone, I just ordered myself a 4-5 inch blue oranda from star fisheries! Hopefully it'll arrive tomorrow in one piece haha, I cant wait!
  6. Haha thanks for saying something it is indeed better than nothing unfortunately the new fish didn't last which is really sad but after a lengthly argument with the store manager I managed to get a refund and I'm looking for a better store though I am also considering a star fisheries goldie
  7. She's in a 20g tub but I can put her in a smaller container if need be
  8. I can't seem to post a photo but not through lack of trying I have since noticed that from above her scales seem prickly like she is pineconing..

Red streaks in fins, white film over body only seen at certain angle [*]* Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Doesn't swim around much So I'm basically worried about my new fish in QT, when I got her she appeared and acted healthy but after 2 weeks and on her second round of Kusuri she is slow and has like a white membrane over the sides of her body that can only be seen at a certain angle, I'd post a picture but tapatalk won't let me for some reason..any ideas what might be wrong with her anyone?
  10. I've been inactive for quite a while now due to college work but figured I should give a quick update before I'm forgotten! Unfortunately Georgie passed away in July of an unknown cause so I kept Jasper on his own for 6 months and he has since grown to 19cm and now has a girlfriend! She is a red and white short bodied oranda full of character who I named Bee as her waddle reminds me of a big bumble bee flying around clumsily! She is 16cm and still in QT. Both fish currently weigh 105g each and are happy and healthy
  11. Thanks guys, Georgie's wen is lovely, strange to think it was only a little bigger than Jasper's when I got him a year ago
  12. Thanks Lis I was slightly shocked at the difference in weight between them considering Georgie is only 4cm longer than Jasper yet weighs a full hundred grams more! Little fatty lol
  13. My new lemonhead oranda Jasper is out of QT and got to meet Georgie today, had to share these photos! They are getting along swimmingly!
  14. Thank you all, he did have a few extra pellets and I must say I think he loves all the attention!
  15. I am very proud of him, I'm hoping to one day breed with him cause he's such a pretty boy, now just to find an aqually pretty female...
  16. Is it just me, or is Oogs wearing eyeliner! Beautiful fish
  17. Today is Georgie's 1st birthday, or rather anniversary, I have officialy owned my best boy for a whole year and it's been amazing to see him grow from the runt of the group who took an immediate liking to me, to the big beautiful boy he is today Needless to say there have been tough times with a glitch in the cycle and a wen problem, but it has been a joy and great pleasure to look after my little guy! When I first got him, Georgie was only 11cm with a short tail and small wen, now he's 18cm with a huge wen and gorgeous tail, I love how his wen has grown out so big, it also makes it appear as though he is constantly smiling which suits his playful personality! Here he is in his bag when I got him 7/7/2013 And here he is today 7/7/2014 Everyone who knows me knows how much I love my gorgeous boy, I even sang him happy birthday and gave him his favourite breakfast this morning
  18. Jasper is now on his last round of Kusuri and doing extremely well, he doesn't stop moving! Plus I think I see a little belly growing, this guy loves his food and already recognises me as he does a quick dash to the front of the tank when he sees me thinking I'll feed him! I already love him to bits! I also came up with a nickname for him, since Georgie is often referred to as the DandyLion around the house, Jasper is the BumbleBee! Hopefully they will get on when Jasper is introduced
  19. Will do, he seems much more perky now
  20. Decided to put him in a QT tank with a seeded filter after disinfecting the one Samson was in and added a few rocks for him to have some fun with, so I got some cute pics of little Jasper whom I have taken to calling Jazz for short
  21. Hi guys, been away for a few days for my brother's wedding but before I left I decided to add some Kusuri, just got back home and Jasper is swimming around quite happily
  22. He's a bit happier from what I've seen of him so far, he's just having breakfast
  23. This is Jasper, l can't upload to youtube from my phone, I'll see if my sister will let me borrow her lap top
  24. Georgie really is all wen and cheeks, and he knows it!
