My New Oranda And Some Other Fish

Guest shin

Recommended Posts

Yesterday when I went to the LFS to return my pleco (had it for 3 years) as it was starting to go after my goldfish, I went to have a look at the GFs and ended up leaving with 1 new black and red oranda.

Heres a pic of him in the Fish store


One of my moors that just left quarantine


My black ranchu that just left quarantine


My pleco that I returned


Another nice red and black oranda that I didnt get but its tail is not connected at the bottom. It looks nice when viewed from the top though.


and a pic of my oranda when i brought him home


My oranda seems to have a broken dorsal fin, will this heal over time?

I dont have any idea what to name my moor, ranchu, or oranda so any suggestions are welcome!

Enjoy the pics :) !

My fish's name just come to me. One day I go up to them and say Hi (insert name here) and that's what I name them. Watch them for awhile and see what names come to mind. Also, what type of names are you looking for? Mine are weird, so far I've had: Spaceboy (RIP), Alexandria (RIP), Mars, Phoenix, Sparky, Skittles, Mithra and Poe. They are all related to hobbies and things I enjoy. Such as 30 Seconds to Mars, a TV show I used to watch, and then different types of Mythology and literature. Skittles is the only one that doesn't fit any of those. For the Oranda I thought of Dragon, but again it all depends on your taste.

They are beautiful fish. I wish I could find some fish like that, but I'm a sucker for buying the underdog and the smaller ones in the tank. They are so beautiful!

Thank you for the comments!

IloveSpaceboy- I'm not sure what names I'm looking for but anything that fits it will do.

Fuzzy Peaches- is it really a demekin? I like it no matter what it is but wouldn't a demekin have a larger hump especially for his size (about 6-7") but then again my other moor doesnt have a hump at all so maybe it actually this one is actually a demekin?

Thank you for all of the comments! I will post pics of a few of my other orandas later on when I notice some change in them. Also, again if anyone has any name suggestions they are more than welcome!
