Can't Be Without A President For Too Long...

The sadness of palmers passing had not been too long, and I went to the LFS to get some pellet food and so on... was looking at the tropicals, and the marine tanks (The store is a BIG saltwater place, 1/2 the store is marine) and then I go over the goldfish section, and look over them, having nice golden fantails.

Go back get a tasteful tank decor (a semi-arabic looking keep) and looked at the faintails...thinking on how empty that 55 is..and a few of the fantails are awfully nice. and even though I have all these Goldfish, not one is gold colored......

So now I have Tuco, a wonderful new fantail :newfish

you know, Gold REALLY stands out :exactly

(I am not the type to stay understock, (nor overstocked) for a long period of time...)

You have never had a gold fish before? I love the look of my gold fantail with a black moor. I like the idea of you decor! Mine is just whatever looks nice all put together :D . Im sorry about palmer, its nice to know you have moved on! :exactly . I have one gold fantailo, the others are calico and a "white" gold fantail. Hope tuco loves his new home! ;)

Hopefully this new lil'un will help take the sting out of Palmers passing.

Tuco must be quite a looker. What a lucky little fishy. You must get pictures!

Congratulations!!! Getting a new fish is always fun! I like a mix of different types of goldies too....I like the contrast. :)

Congrats on your new fish! He must be a real charmer! Gold is great (says GN)!

Did you name him Tuco from the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly? I love that movie!

HaHaHa. I love that movie too, recently bought it on DVD and Garion watched it with me. Garion thought Tuco was really bad, when I was a kid I thought so too. Strange, watching it through adult eyes gave me a kinder impression of Tuco. ;)

edit: I'm a big Clint Eastwood fan. You know how people have a favourite actor and will watch any movie just because they are in it? That's how it is with me and Clint Eastwood. :heart

Yeah! Same thing with me, when I got older, I saw Tuco completely differently! Hmm... I must have matured along the way - Oooops! (JK) :lol:

The best part of naming fish after films, books, etc - like you said Drgong - is you get to get more fish!!!

My favorite Sergio Leone film of all is "Once Upon a Time in the West" - lots of charcters = lots of goldfish! :thumb:

Anytime you want to chat about Spaghetti - PM me! Can't wait for :photo: of Tuco - and to hear the arrival of Blondie and Angel Eyes... :teehee

PS - Fishmer - Ditto! Clint Eastwood is FaBu! And so is Leone! YOU guys have some great taste in flix!!!

Sorry to hear you lost Palmer, but congrats on Tuco. Can you post pics?
