First of all dont yell at me Im already giving myself the koko stick for this :wa ...........I bought this little guy at wallyworld yesterday :wa:whistle:crying: . But its not my fault! He was just so cute.......and he wasnt looking all that great and I new he needed a good home......... Anyway, we were at my bro's hockey tournament and inbetween games my mom and I went to wallyworld and I saw this little fishie, so I asked if I could have him and my mom said that we could come back later, I was scared that he would b gone by then cause this wallyworld sells quite a few fish, but luckily he was still there. The lady working in the pets department knew nothing about fish and filled almost the whole bag with water and pretty much no air at all (did the same thing with the guy before me) then she tied at knot in the bag instead of using the rubberbands so while we were driving I was trying to open the bag (I always do that cause of the long drive home, usually I reclose it though but couldnt cause there was no rubberband) but I couldnt get the knot open so we had to stop at the side of the road so my mom could try and finally we did get it open, poor thing was already breathing fast and hanging near the surface. He's a funny lil fishie, he was making bubbles at the surface then one popped and it scared him so much he nearly jumped out of the bag lol. He's in qt with Cherry right now, I named him Chinook. I think he's about 3 inches long and then has a long flowing tail. What kind of shubbie do u guys think he is? I've heard that the ones with the long flowing tail is called a japanese shubunkin, is that true? And pics:
