So as you know, I recently lost my beloved goldfish to the giant blue pond in the sky and completely redid my tank. Although I am going to fishless cycle it, I figured it wouldn't hurt to have its inhabitants in QT while I awaited their tank cycle. Kill two birds with one stone, eh?

Anywho, without further ado, the fishes!

The oranda is named Martin, and the ryukin is named (tentatively) Frasier. Any name suggestions are welcome, too, as these names aren't set.

I picked the ryukin for his tiny stature and cute coloration, whereas the oranda I bought solely for his friendly demeanor. In the store, he followed my finger faithfully all over the tank. And now, he is faithfully following his little friend! They are inseparable.

I believe that Martin is turning orange. I'm not sure if you can see it in this video, but his underside is tinted orange. . . Not sickly yellow like jaundice, but like a color change. And I love his fins!

So you can get a better idea on their sizes;

Both great fish!

Really love them. I am partial to the name Frasier, as my childhood dog was a dorky and wonderful mutt named Frazier. :heart

I love them, and their names suit them!  Frasier is definitely trying to push in in front of Martin.... just like their namesakes!

Miles doesn't live with them in the show, so it stands to reason he doesn't live in the same tank.

Thanks guys! I can't wait to actually aadd them to the tank. They are a welcome additions to my fishie family.

They are adorable! I really like the names. I always wanted to do Frasier names for my pets, but never went through with it. :)

I only wish I had a bigger tank, so I could include Niles and Roz!????
