  1. I can hardly believe I've had this little wiggler for over three months ! Nor can i believe how much he's grown He is turning out to be a stunner for sure ....and quite the ladies man 3 months ago: today:
  2. So, as some of you know I recently had a moment of weak-will this past weekend and impulse bought one of Ken's 'scratch and dent' orandas ..... With the newbie coming in the mail tomorrow I've been busy making preparations- setting up the 20 gallon QT rubbermaid bin, sorting out heaters, fitlers, and food etc; All with Mochi watching me and doing his excited wiggly- pay attention and feed me dance ! He is just so darn cute Soon I am going to be the proud mama of two of the most darling orandas in all of New Jersey Some pics of the big-brother to be: "hrmmmmmm I dunno how I feel about getting an impromptu sibling...." "mom, you're still gonna love me the most right?" "I'm not gonna have to share my giant algae wall....am I?" "I'm too speedy for the camera ! " Gahhhh I can't get over how much little guy has grown in just two and a half months !! I can't wait to show his 3 month update because he really does look like an entirely different fish I am so proud of him and could not be happier A a big thankyou to everyone here at kokos for helping me keep him happy, healthy, and thriving oh....and a sneak-peak of the newbie they are certainly going to be quite the pair !
  3. Hi all ! Just thought I'd post some photos of Mochi in his new digs As of yesterday he is out of QT and in his giant 20 gallon !! (the tank looks massive with him in it, as he is roughly the size of a quarter ) .....He's super difficult to photograph as he's only about an inch long, and surprisingly speedy? But I did my best ! So without further ado, I present the illustrious Mochi-Ball :heart

Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. .....just the current salt treatment * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?at first i thought his fins were frayed, but upon closer examination he is just so white/see-through that it looks like his fins are frayed.... his belly looks swollen to me also, i can't tell if he has ich, or if it was just dust on the outside of the bowl i put him in to take pictures? however, he has been having normal and healthy looking poops....and i would think the salt would have destroyed any ich...by now? this is day 4 of salt.... ***also, he was much darker in color when i brought him home....and has quite literally 'turned white' since being with me....is that bad? * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? he's pretty active, and has been eating like a hoover...
  5. Hey all ! So I am ashamed to say that upon my visit to my lfs yesterday (Pet Shanty on route 22, for my fellow New Jersians ).... I made a bit of an impulsive decision .....After picking up some extra filter media for my cycling 20 gallon, I wandered over to the goldfish section. Now, I usually avoid doing this as this particular pet store always has GORGEOUS goldies, and I am a weak willed individual when it comes to self control lol Anyways, a super tiny lavender and yellow oranda caught my eye. I pointed him out to my boyfriend, who immediately responded with; You should totally get him! He's only like...what? 4 dollars? Of course, that was the only convincing I needed to quickly call over a sales associate to snatch him and bag him for me.... I know I may have jumped the gun on this one, but I figure I would have wanted to quarantine him anyways right? And he's probably much happier in the spacious 15 gallon rubbermaid than his previous overstocked petstore conditions.....right? Anywho, I spent most of yesterday running about my house like a crazy person in order to put together a makeshift QT environment lol He's got a cycled filter from my beta tank and an airstone..... planning on doing 80% water changes every day until his quarantine period is over. I was hoping to pick up some prazi pro, but the pet store didn't have any (i will be overnighting some from amazon hopefully...) Also, because he is in a rubbermaid.... I didn't put a heater in with him, so the water dropped to 60 degrees last night Does anyone have any experience using heaters in food safe plastic bins? I was afraid it would melt the plastic... He seems a bit sluggish today but I think that's due to the cold water.... Anyways, I snapped some shots of the little cutie Introducing Mochi !!! .....I named him due to his likeness to the yummy asian desert setting up his QT tub..... the little boogle is just over an inch long !!! (soooo tinyyyy :heart ) With the makings of some beautiful finnage if i do say so myself
