I had ALWAYS WANTED a black moor. I like yours too but you know I love the more "ryukin" shaped bodies and Charles has a body like that and BIG googly eyes. Video is up but you can hardly see the black fish lol

:teehee See I like them more of the Oranda style :) just big and round and long :rofl

He's got a long tail. Aren't Demekin short tailed? I love the compact body shape he's got. He's one of my favorites. 

And Koko I like my Orandas compact bodied too like Citrine. I love stubby bodied fish.

Well maybe he does have some in there. That is of course super awesome if he does because that means his shape will get deeper as he gets older. Now to get them through the winter. I only got him this year... Which means his good growth spurt should happen next grow season.

Not sure if this counts!  But I have been using flourish excel in my 30 gallon octagonal tank and this is how much the plants have grown!!

He was quite ugly when I got him, and I really don't know why I actually picked him out, but I'm glad I did!

Lady Winslow is beautiful! She is really coming along well, she has the body shape I like in an oranda

She's the worst swimmer I have by far. Tilts down a lot, turns poorly, and just goofy and not at all graceful. Citrine, who was a compact bodied guy, moved much much better.

My Oranda, Luka, is my worst swimmer. He is more long bodied than Lady Winslow but he struggles a lot and it is just gradually getting worse.
