I went to the San Diego koi show today expecting only to look at awesome koi and vendors for fish supplies, but much to my surprise Goldfishnet had a booth there and many awesome goldfish for sale. I've only ever seen these fish in photos for the online auction before, so seeing them up close was a cool experience. And of course, I fell in love. I only had enough money and tank space to take one home though. So here he is (and it's definitely a he because I see breeding stars), my new kirin telescope. I have not given him a name yet, because I like to get to know a fish's personality a bit before deciding on a name. That will come soon though. This guy has some definite personality. :)

 

These pics were taken in my small quarantine tank, but I will take more once I move him into the 72 bow front I just set up, which will also be a kind of QT since everything in it will be new at the same time.

Thanks everyone! :)

He seems to be doing well this morning. Going into the bigger tank today once I double check the water parameters.

It looks like this guy now has a name. My boyfriend and I started calling him Goofball because of his silly behavior, and it seems to have stuck. So, Goofball it is.  :teehee
