Meet Mocha

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! Just wanted to show y'all my new baby. His/her name is Mocha. It's a chocolate oranda. It was in PetSmart for almost 3 months. It sort of has an ugly face, so my guess is that nobody wanted the fish because of that. I felt sorry and ended up buying the little fella. I did qt him, but he finally joined my gang last week. So... Here's Mocha!

s/he doesn't have an ugly face :SmackBottom: they are gorgeous :)

Lol Mocha is a bit odd looking. I think it is because it is a younger oranda. Most of the ones they had there were bigger, with larger wens, so it was not a fair competition for the little fella! I just felt so sorry for it, I ended up buying it. Compared to the other orandas available and ti the rest of my gang... He does have an ugly face lol but I am sure that as it fattens up it will change

Lol if you think he has an ugly face compared to your gang then maybe he does or maybe you still haven't grown used to his 'complexion' lol :lol:

I don't find his face ugly in the least. Adorable little purple baby! (At least that's how the photos look. 'Purple' color is hard to come by, so congratulations!)

Wow!! I did not know that!! They just told me he is a chocolate oranda! That is way too cool. Do they stay this color?

Mocha looks a little bit....angry? :teehee 

:Congrats:

I recently almost did the same thing. Every time I went to Petsmart to get crickets, there was this pretty Lemonhead oranda. I couldn't believe it didn't sell. The more time passed, I felt so bad for him/her. The last time we went, I decided that I would get him, if he was still there. (There was a Petco dpg sale going on after all) But, alas, he was gone. I didn't know if I should be happy/relieved or sad. :whistle

It's so cute! I have to say, from the side, it does look a bit like a duck face to me...which I think is cute as can be! I want one now.

Sometimes they do, sometimes they turn orange. If you give him access to sunlight, though, he should darken up a fair amount. :) 

Chocolate is a much duller brown. Purple, by chinese standards, is what you have. Definitely.
