Yeah the second worst swimmer I have is actually Asilah. This guy. He's not nearly as bad as Winslow but he swims with his head pointed down sometimes and he is clumsy and runs into stuff and has a some wen issues. He's slow and awkward as well. Very goofy. He does not FLOAT, but just doesn't move well through the water. He's like 3+ years old.

Over the years I have noticed that Orandas with very big wens seem not to be able to swim as gracefully as other fish with not such a big wen :) I love there faces but man I hate to see the struggle :(

Yeah I don't think I'll get anymore CAPPED type of Orandas. The ones with the wens surrounding their faces are cuter and they don't have the weird swimming issues the capped types do. 

So true :thumbs:

Yea, I don't think I'll get an oranda again, I love them but Im always paranoid about wen issues and now swimming issues lol. But who knows, I said I'd never get a pearlscale as well :rofl But Luka has been my only wenned fish in 9 years of having goldies.

I have lots of mush now, but again I'm only interested in the rounded mush... Not the all on top mush. I much prefer Ryukins and Fantails anyway. I wanted a Ranchu but they keep DYING within days of getting them so forget it. 

And by far the fish with the most drastic change I have is Mr. Ulliri

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a gorgeous fish Mr. Ulliri turned out to be!!!!

I think Goldies it's kinda like Forest Gump said "......you never know what you're gonna get"!!!! But I sure would love a Ryukin like yours!!!

Special little man. After weeks of complaining about a particularly bad case of ich at the local big box store... He still didn't have the ich when most had died or were covered. His will to live and the fact that given time he would suffer the same fate made me pick him.

He's just the tiny ugly brown fish amongst all the bigger more colorful fish. Nobody wanted him. I didn't either really but I just felt he deserved love and a chance after all he went through. Tough boy. Never been sick and is a good and gentle boy.

He was olive and so I named him Ulliri (Ooo-LEE-Vee). The fact that he's a cool color now is funny because it is just part of him defying everything.

I only have one goldfish left so I will do a before and after with Wishing Star (Wish for short ;) ) Wish had several areas of dark orange coloring which is one reason I was drawn to Wish in the pet store. After the "New Fish Quarantine" period was over, Wish had lost all of the pretty orange and was all white except the top part of Wish's eyes that looks like eye shadow. :ehh LOL! Then I put Wish in the 20 gallon long tank.:fishtank: Wish looked so tiny next to the big rock on the right side of the tank. Now wish is bigger than the rock! :saywhat:gfish:

@Fish Of Gold WOW! Those fins are amazing. I'm really surprised just how nice they are. 

Your doing such a great job taking care Wishing Star 🥰

Thank you! I sure appreciate you saying I am taking good care of Wishing Star! I am so surprised too at how big and flowing Wish's fins turned out. I found an even better picture of the fins from a little time ago, you can even see the orange color is lightly trying to come back again. A funny thing is, that after all these years I still can't tell if Wish is a male or female LOL! I'm really bad at that, so sometimes I say she and other days I say he. Wishing star knows, but he/she is keeping it a secret from me! ha ha!
