poor unfortunate souls

So I was at Wal-mart and of course went over to look at the goldfish. The wal-mart in one of my nearby towns usually gets in really interesting looking fish. However, it's Wal-mart afterall and the tanks usually look horrendous. So as I went over to look at the fishies I was as usual, disgusted. We're talking dead fish everywhere, skeletons everywhere with fish trying to eat them, dying fish, floaty fish, wayyyyy too many fish in a tank, etc etc etc etc. Now I am a complete dork, and I immediately starting singing Little Mermaid.... "poor unfortunate soulsss, in painnn, i neeed....." :rofl

But anyway, I brought three home. There wasn't anyone in the department so I just like, whatever, and caught, labeled, and bagged the fish myself. I picked out the a black moor female for my male, Quaxo, and two beautiful ryukin looking mutts that are probably distant cousins to my Sherby since this wal-mart always gets in fish that look like this and this is where I got Sherby. :) So I picked out a female and another male. :D

This is the female:

Here's the black moor. They had a tank FULL of what look like demekin moors. I just stuck the net in and this is the one I got, I wasn't fussy since they were all gorgeous. :)

You can't tell, but she has a gorgeous ryukin hump. :D

And here's the male,

The two ryukins are just gorgeous. Photos don't really do them justice. They have wonderful hump development and have huge chunky bodies. I can't wait to see how they develop color wise and for their tails to grow like crazy. :D

The only bad thing is when I got them, the female laid on the bottom twitching like crazy. I immediately prazi'd and starting salting and she's already swimming around and not twitching as much. :)'

"And do I help them? Yes, Indeed~"

What goorgeous Ryus. <3

The walmart where I am doesn't even bother with goldies anymore. xD they just have hardy fish like tetras and bettas. And are actually pretty excellent. The tanks always look a little understocked compared to pet stores, very clean, very well kept.

With some very bored person constantly hovering to help people. lmao.

Haha I loved the way you ended your post. Classic. Gosh they're all so pretty, but that male ryu is amazing, it looks like he'll get some blue coloring in those lighter patches. Congrats!!!!
