Baby Names Revealed and Another Photoshoot


Recommended Posts

  • Supporter

I finally decided on names for all 9 of the babies I'm keeping...and here they are

Will be interesting to see how Rusty and Copper turn out, they are the only ones that still have their fry colour!

 

Now if you were attentive you'd have noticed there is only 7 in that photo...that's because the other 2 haven't moved out of their tank to the pond yet, they are the smallest ones and I don't want to put them out just yet..

A little about Spock...any professional breeder, breeding for looks, would have culled him long ago..I got attached to him and as long as he seems to be having a good quality of life, active and eating well etc, I'm okay with keeping him around. You can see his strange head/mouth shape in the photo, and his gill plates turn outwards. He is my little weirdo and I adore him.

 

It's been a long, steep learning curve with these babies, I've made a lot of mistakes and as such these guys are nowhere near the size they should be. But right now they seem healthy, they are crazily active and I'm prepared to learn from my mistakes and do better if the opportunity to raise fry should arise again :)

 

Now for the rest of the photoshoot, this time it was Tiger who didn't cooperate...there is always one..I can never get a good photo of each of them in one photoshoot..noooo one of them always has to be stubborn.

 

Okay enough talk, here are the photos!

WOW Mandy, they all look so happy and healthy.  Its great to see everyone in their proper place now... and your babies are so cute.  I still cant get over how amazingly beautiful all your fin babies are, and what great photography!  Thankyou soooooo much for sharing... makes me feel super happy to see so many well cared for and loved fin babys!  :happydance

 

Cali looks like she is working on sucking all the air out of the room, to displace it with water and then she can swim around the house... if this works :lol2  today the lounge room... tomorrow the world!  :flex:

Thanks so much Ree :heart: Hopefully soon I'll feel that Spock and Scotty can join the others in the pond, but for now they are happy in their own tank getting all the food lol :P

Your fish all look great! Spock is adorable even if he isn't perfect. As long as quality of life isn't impacted I think that oddball fish are a lot of fun.

Sorry to be nosey and off-topic, but what are those white spots on your orange telescope's tail? My ranchu has white spots that look exactly like that… I already have a D&D thread going that I need to update with new pics. I haven't been able to find any other pics that look like them on here. I know what my fish has could be different, but I'm curious!

 

All your fish are beautiful, by the way  :)

Great pics. I still have at least 3 fish that should have been culled, but couldn't bring myself to do it. They are doing fine despite their abnormalities.

That's great to hear ;D

They look great!!!!!

Thanks!

Yes, those little things! I've done several rounds of prazi, salt, and even metro meds, and they're still there… I've just been watching them now. Do any of your other fish have them? Good to hear they don't seem to be bothering him.
