Meet Mocha


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

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 [emoji6]

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

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.
