New Orandas

I'd like you all to meet Frenchy and Fester, my two new orandas. Frenchy is a redcap (named for his red beret, of course), and Fester Addams is black. They're my largest fish, both about 4 inches in body length, and both are doing well so far in the new Tacky Tiki Tank II.

Frenchy:

Fester:

The two of them are getting along nicely so far (I was worried that Fester was going to be too much of a bully, but he seems to have mellowed some).

Fester wants to eat. ALWAYS.

If anyone in NorCal is looking for a black oranda, Fester's identical twin is hanging out at the LFS just waiting for someone to snatch him up. :) PM me for store details if you're interested.

Yep, I do fabric backgrounds on both tanks. I had 1/8" plastic cut to fit the backs of the tanks, then I wrapped them with the fabric. It's really easy to swap out if I get bored.

I'm not sure yet if Fester is a boy. He doesn't have breeding stars, but he has an innie vent, so I'm kind of stumped. If he ends up being Morticia Addams, that would be OK with me. :D

:Congrats: I am so glad to finally see more pictures of them. I have to go to No-Cal in December and I would love to go get Fester's twin. But I'm flying....I don't know the rules on flying back. It always drives me crazy when I'm there because pet central has the most amazing fish.

Fester, the black oranda, is from one of my fave fish stores. Their goldfish selection is small but usually has some impressive fish. I love to stop by there every couple of weeks and see what they have. They had gigantic black moors a month or two ago, huge ones that were just jet black throughout. :druel They almost always have really large ryukins too.

Frenchy is from the Goldfishnet.com auction two weeks ago. I had Fester and decided he needed a buddy. I was kind of out of my head after losing my elderly pug, and Fester was an impulse buy at the LFS on the way home. Then I found myself online buying Frenchy shortly thereafter.

I had my dad bring me a fishy back from San Diego on the plane. Don't know if it was legal or not but he has of way of always getting his way...I think I got that from him...

Both are Beautiful !

perfect Wens , strong fins , and Frenchy's bright white is to die for .

That big mouth on fester means He's going to be huge .

Breeders look for big mouth's on strong swimmers . He will be the first one to the dinner table. :feedme
