Introducing Kansas

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Kansas just finished his four week QT and joined the big kids tonight. He is a spunky little guy and doesn't seem to realize he is the smallest. I had a hard time coming up with a black and white Wizard of Oz name until my husband mentioned that all of the Kansas scenes are in black and white.

Here he is:

And a few pics of the whole crew:

Hidr, I have a friend who keeps a 7" panda moor. He grew it up from a pond that has a slight exposure to sunlight I think. May have to grab some of her shots since I didn't save the ones he sent me. It's possible but you're right. It is very difficult to achieve having such color pattern remain for some time.

Kansas is so beautiful!

I figure he will go mostly white which I am fine with, but that dark spot is under his wen and the black around his eyes will most likely stay. Lynda got his brother and he is already going orange. To be expected I guess.

They had a whole tankfull but that was before I got the 55 gallon. Lynda (an old...by that I don't mean old, but longstanding Koko's member) actually picked Kansas out for me. As soon as I got the 55 gallon I called her and she picked him out...the store was right by her house.

Oh I'm so jealous!! I know the coloration won't stay long, but I am in love with the black and white orandas, and have been been looking for them everywhere. My LFS will place an order for me, but I dont know if they could order one for me in those colors. The hunting continues......

I actually don't know the name of the store. It is in Santa Monica on Santa Monica Blvd on the left, in a shopping about ten or fifteen blocks past the Utrecht. I hope that helps. I was there about a week or two and there were two left.

He is a cutie, though I think he will end up mostly white. That was kind of my plan though when I picked him. It will be cool if he keeps some of that black. I managed to get a sort of face forward picture finally on him.
