  1. Yesterday I went to my lfs in search of a tall, skinny, spindly (but not pointy!) piece of driftwood. Of course I went to the back wall, cuz, goldfish. I found some aaaamazing calico orandas, along with some great ryukin too, and the big long-bodied moor who I wish would find a home already. And then I found my driftwood! Went back to the fish! Hemmed and hawed, said no, said yes, then realized how many times I've let the good ones go. So I said, YEAH! Buy the fish! And then I bought the driftwood and left. Long story short, I bought my daughter a taco (but actually I was buying myself some time, okay and a taco for me too ), figured it out, and went back in and got my fish. :panana I am IN LOVE!!! I flipped out when I got him into the qt tank because he is even more gorgeous than I had realized at the store. Basically a bigger, red-wenned version of Aubrey's Jersey. I am a touch nervous as I haven't had such a compact fish, nor such a long-finned fish, or one with an actual wen. I've been thinking this whole time that he may be bigger than all of my fish, except for Blimp. I figured he'd be a Plumbean+fins, but no, he's only 46g. I've only ever bought really small fish (Betty's the exception) so maybe that's why my perception was all wonky. I dunno! Please wish me good luck on his qt! He isn't the happiest guy to be in there, and sometimes I wonder if I'm imagining a little floatiness. But I'm so happy I took the plunge! He's beefy and has cheeks. Oh, and here's the driftwood!
  2. Only partially kidding, because I really love them. Want to be my personal shopper anyone? http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/pet/5168467084.html
  3. So my son who is 7 has a 20g long tank and he has been bugging me for a goldfish. I know darn well I would be the one taking care of it. So after work I took him to several of our LFS with no luck. Nothing just jumped out at him saying take me!! So I decided to drive a few towns over for one last try and BOOM he found "Sushi" a cute calico oranda BTW I didn't name him he did . He's an active little guy 38g and cute as a button. Has some red streaking in the tail fins but he is sitting in QT with .01% salt and in a few days will be starting prazi. I am currently seeding my sons 20g filter with my media and will be out of QT when I think he's good to go and done with treatment and 20 is fully cycled. But right now the QT sterilite tub is his new home for now... Ok enough of me boring you to death here he is!! Sorry the light on video is bad. I didn't want to disturb him so much while he settled in http://s40.photobucket.com/user/cdionne77/media/20150811_224253_zpsipwnjzmk.mp4.html Sushi has breeding stars He reminds me so much of Skipper in Oranda form
  4. Just a few closeups of my pretty little Wakka. He is so fat and round and... short This was actually just an accidental snap shot but I love how it shows of his fins His body is about as long as his head '
