my aunty visited today and brought with her a red and white oranda that she could no longer keep in her tank as she has gotten too big. im hoping she will grow big, as i know my aunty's tank is only small. im calling her a she as my 'in season' shubunkin has been chasing her around, or he is just stating his territory, but it seems to have calmed down a bit now. other than that she seems to have settled in fine, has been eating today and swimming about fine.

on the way here i think she has broken a fin, as shown in one of the pics, but other than that looks healthy and pretty! havent got a name yet though, so any suggestions are welcome.

yer, shes ok for now, and i am hoping to put the shubunkin in one of three ponds that i have available to me as i think he is getting a bit too boistrous in the tank now, i know it isnt his fault though, he is a guy!!

yer she is a looker, maybe that is why he is hitting on her so soon, poor ryukin has been dumped!! :blink:

i love the mix of red and white on her,

which little one?? the new one, erm im not sure how small, havent got a ruler to measure, the others are pretty big, so she probs looks quite small.

yes it was nice of her, but i think she is better in a bigger tank, more room to grow, and my guys and gals are great so she will be okay.

anyway guys any names?!!! i have run out of inspiration naming fish l8ly

What a pretty fish, l love that white streak on her dorsal fin! I think Poppy is a great name (at first I typed poopy :ignore:rofl ) I am glad she has a home where she can grow to be healthy and happy!

thank you fish crazy, i like her wen also, not too big yet!! my calico oranda is starting to get a really big wen, as is my orange oranda. the Baby Blue has a tiny one though!! its clean as i have a UV filter now which has cleaned up the water nicely, although i do have some algea beginning to grow as i no longer have live plants in there, thinking i might get some tomo though
