About 3 months ago, I received 6 ranchus from Cynthia of East Coast Ranchu (ECR). I had originally ordered 5, but Cynthia graciously added an extra. This one only had one eye, and I took an immediately liking to him, and have named him Bandit. Bandit lives in the 100 gallon tank with his chu-crew, Thing 1- Thing 5, 2 ryukins (Boss Lisa, and Mr. No Name), as well as two others, The Stakos and UnaBuna. Today, I'd like to give you the update on Bandit and the Things, as well as Boss Lisa and Mr. No Name. The other two fish I will save until a later time, since I want to devote an entire thread to my coming back to single tails. So, without further ado, here are most of the crew in the 100g. They have grown lots in the almost 3 months they have been here, and I am very pleased with them. Currently, the 100g is a fine place for them, especially because I am doing 90% WCs every 4-5 days, but as they get older, I will place them either in my spare 55g, or make some other arrangements. For now, I am loving seeing these fish together, and growing up fast. This is their home. Thanks to Tammy's encouragement, I dove back to having plants, even if they are only anubias. This is Bandit, the one-eyed chu He looks quite different on the other side Thing 1 & Thing 2 are black Thai ranchus. They were the tiniest creatures when they came, and are now getting there. I can tell the difference between them, but taking pics of them is not so easy. So, here are some representative pics. Thing 3, the most awesome sakura ranchu ever Thing 4, lemon head ranchu Thing 5, calico ranchu Boss Lisa. I wonder whom he's named after. Mr. No Name (Edit: is now Ms.Alyssa) Some group shots. I know this was quite a lot of pictures, and I thank you for your patience in going through them.
