Less Featured - Minnie, Caligo, Fio, Sunny, and newbie Nova!

Recommended Posts

Well, I finally figured out how to use my sisters camera to take pictures of my fish!! I tried tirelessly to figure out her aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings, and after many failed pictures I finally figured out that her camera is smarter than me, and using the auto setting with burst photos makes for some good shots :P

I tried to focus mostly on my more camera shy fish, but a couple more snuck into some of the shots (;

My newest fish Nova and Minnie are absolutely gorgeous, and the pictures don't do them justice. Minnie is the same Minnie that Ms. Jenny decided to rehome. I picked her up on the way down from Oregon and I couldn't be more thrilled! She is absolutely perfect and I can't thank Ms. Jenny enough. I hope that even with the overstocking (and plans for a second large tank) this is still a good home for Minnie (:

And Nova, I found at a petsmart. I had never seen anything like her! She was labeled as an Oranda, but she is incredibly thin and long. I am not sure if she is just an Oranda or if she is maybe something different? What do you guys think?

Without further ado, here are some better pics of everyone in the 125 (:

Nova (: I was thinking about submitting one of these 2 pictures for pic of the week.

Minnie, she was hiding in the corner and it was hard to get a good pic of her. She likes to stay near the bottom to forage for food (:

Caligo, realizing I took a picture of her.

She likes to turn away from the camera......

Sunny! Anyone know what is up with his coloring?

And when I actually get a good shot, the light is too bright ):

Sunny the green ranchu is very interesting. That is pure natural original prussian carp colour I would say.

Superb setup you have, Love it.

They are all gorgeous :) I'll bet they are so happy in that 125.

Side note, in your avatar you look just like someone I work with. It freaks me the freak out!

Hahah a doppelgänger!

They are so happy. At first they only swam on one side because they had no clue what to do with all the room!

How funny! They look like a bunch of little kids rattling around a haunted old house, all bunched up together and tiny. Sunny has the oddest coloring, pretty but definitely different.
