Humpy & Bumpy Things (Pic Heavy)

Recommended Posts

Woot! I got better pics tonight! So, without further ado, here's a bit of a pictorial update from both my 55 and 100 gallons. I am only updating on the chocolate oranda, 2 telescopes, and the ryukins. I am very happy to say that these have been in my tanks since they were pretty small, and have done a good job growing. :)

Chocolate Oranda

I'm not really sure that he's a chocolate, but I really like this color. He is from DO, and is of the longer body type, which I am growing to appreciate much more. :)

White Ryukins

These guys also came from DO. There were three, but one unfortunately did not make it. As you can see, one is showing quite a bit of yellow, while the other has remained mostly white. I love these guys! :)

Red/White Ryukin

This guy came from an LFS. He is so awesomely fat LOL, and he has a bit of a wen action going on as well. :)

Black telescope

I am so very proud of this guy. He has been with me since I started this hobby again, and is just amazing. He doesn't have the prettiest fins, nor the best shape, but then he hasn't given me a single problem since 4.5 years ago (knock on wood). Some years back, he must have hit on something that resulted in that pool of blood in his eye. It hasn't bothered him a bit, AND it hasn't gone away. I think he's going to turn orange soon, but he's been threatening to do that for quite some time now. :rofl

I don't think you post enough photo's on here. I think since I've been on here (Sept. 2012) I can only think of one time seeing your fish. :hummm;) Either that or I've just been missing the posts. You have some beautiful fish. I love them all. Your Chocolate Oranda looks more like a muted yellow and orange. What makes a fish a Chocolate Oranda? Just the wen being chocolate or the whole body??? I thought my newest fish was one at first but had learned it's a tri-colored Oranda that has been and is going through a big color change now. I love your Choc. Oranda and his colors. :wub: The Ryukins are beautiful. Oh my gosh the red/white one reminds me of a poodle puppy. You took some great photos to show this. ha ha The red by his sides of face, which would be the ears, and the wen would be the top curls of a poodle. Especially that first shot and last. Tell me you see a poodle! :) I also see a red butterfly on his upper back. So much character. Your telescope fish are beautiful also. Love the story you told on your black one. Thanks for sharing your fish with us. I really enjoyed seeing them again. You should post a video of them now. (hint, hint)
