Thugs And Mutts

Recommended Posts

First of all NOT good pics but then I never seem to be able to get good ones! They swarm to the camera thinking its food and then headbutt the ground thinking the camera has fed them :rolleyes:. How can I photograph that? I wanted nice graceful swimming goldie shots but what else can you expect from my gang of thugs :idont

So, here are the mutts themselves. These fry are from Dad- a calico telescope (Moo in my avator) and my black demekin Momma Flap. It seems Momma's genes were definitely the stronger ones :P.

Here she is with Noddy (at least I think that's Noddy :hmm) :

And the tank that's home (and is due for a clean) :Fishupdates011.jpg

Here is what they looked like when they first went in that tank (notice ALL black team):

In the other tank: There are two fish that were calico like Moo:

And a surprise ryukin shaped fish with flat eyes (from two telescope eye parents). This one is Fumi's fave :)

(because its the odd one out I think, he's so tenderhearted).

And just for comparison and because this shot always makes me feel like its all been worth it.

The way they were:

Oh, I just saw this!

It's amazing, isn't, to raise fry! And you got so many lookalikes, looks just like mommy.

And some odd ones!

I've had those experiences too!

:D A lovely bunch of fish. Haha. The family shot looks like a group of thugs about to beat someone up for food. EEP! Don't mess with them when it's feeding time. :blink:

As for that one... it reminds me of those toys with the stick on eyes with the pupils that jiggle. :D like those eyes should be rolling around. Haha... does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm sure there's a technical name for those googly eye things.

Oh, I missed this too. Your fry are looking amazing! (Can they still be called fry?)

Now your all black army remind me of burning coals, some glowing red. I wonder what color they will end up?

Any offspring from the oh-so-gorgeous Moo are bound to be stunning, so I'm not surprised by your tank full o' cuteness. heartpump.gif

It's amazing how quickly goldfish grow, truly. To think that little bag of babies grew into those "thugs" boggles the mind. Incredible!

Thanks so much Ranchu.

Thankyou Kymie!It's a nice combination of colors on fish I think.

Ha! He came from the mailman. :D

Certainly looks like a mailman fish must have sneaked into the tank at some point :P
