Two New Ranchus


Recommended Posts

I'd like to introduce my two new ranchus, Mango (sakura) and Minestrone (calico). The two of them were in QT for more than 30 days, just to make absolutely positively sure they weren't carrying cooties. They were healthy and well the entire time, except for Minestrone's headstanding. He still does a fair amount of it, but it's not as bad as it was and he seems otherwise very healthy. I'm pretty delighted with both of them. They moved into the Tacky Tiki Tank recently and it's kind of astounding how all 3 ranchus are about the same size. They look really nice together, if I do say so myself. :)

Thanks, Tay! Salem's a really easy-going fish. He likes his new tankmates just fine. They all seem to be getting along beautifully, which is a real relief. I think the fact that their sizes are so similar helps a lot!

Thanks, everyone! I'm really enjoying them. I'll try to take a whole-tank shot soon to share with all of you. I'm always a little tentative about posting those, because I know my style of tank decorating is definitely not everyone's taste. I love kitschy/tacky, but many may not. :)
