Hi Everyone! :D

I've never posted pictures before, but I finally got a digital camera and couldn't wait to share my goldies with you guys! After a zillion pictures, some came out, and here goes...

Here's some pictures of my fish family:

This is my red and white ranchu, Baby, because she came to me a month ago when she was just 3 months old. I'll keep a file on her development. I'd like to see her wen and the narial pompons develop more. I'm feeding frozen bloodworm, leafy greens, ProGold dry pellets, and am thinking of making some gel food. Does anybody have further suggestions?

I call this photo: Baby Takes a Bow

lol! See the one behind them? At first, I was going to name the oranda, Artus, for King Arthur and then my calico with the long fin, Guinivere, and the baby, after the Lady In the Lake. But I changed my mind because I did some research on armor. The silver and black outlining the silver reminded me of armor I had seen. Well, turns out that cuirass lamellar armor was introduced in ancient China during the Bronze Age. It was made of thin bronze plates sewn onto cloth and overlayed with another piece of cloth for protection. Hence, the name Shang, for the dynasty ca. 1766 BC - ca. 1050 BC.
