I Am Going To A Petstore Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Think white fish thoughts for me please, I would like to find a nice white or albino moor, a white pearscale, or some other type of fancy white fish. Or a golden weather loach.

I won't hold my breath though, this store never seems to have nice white fish. It is the store that I got my Big Blackie at................ They have a cool parrot there, that asks me for crackers all the time :rofl Too funny.

I am thinking LOTS of white fishy thoughts.

The day that I got my white fish, I had a choice of a white oranda or a white telescope. I chose the telescope. And I haven't seen many all white fish since.

I sincerely hope that you find what you are looking for. :hug

Thanks Mellonell ;)

Wynkin, I would have picked the telescope too, I :wub: telescopes. Is that your white t/eyes in your avitar? Beauty!

Jude, when have you known me not to post pictures?! :D For sure, I just need to get the camera batteries charged up.

But I should also caution, don't get your hopes up for pictures of a new white fish, because I doubt I will find one....but I'm going to cross my fingers.

I may have to order one from my lfs.

Edjeff, OHHH I would have you ship them to me for sure, if shipping was not so darn much. It's like 79$ Canadian or something to have a fish shipped overnight from the US to Canada, crazy eh!

Thanks for the thought though, I appreciate it :D

Well they had a nice big all white Common, but I don't have room for another common, well I could make room, but I didn't have anything set up, so I did't get that one. I was looking for a fancy, that will go into the tank that has other similar fish in it.

I did get a little itty bitty pearlscale though. It's tiny and a light orange, with black markings, and a white/pink spot on it's gill. It's tummy has some white too, wouldn't you just die if it turned all white....I know I would :lol

I may have gotten a few half decent pictures of it, but my camera batteries didn't fully charge for some reason and they died again, they are still charging, so hopefully I will be able to get a pic up in a few hours.

Hi Jessica,

Your baby pearlscale sounds as though he/she looks like my little Popcorn :)

Popcorn was only about 3/4's of an inch when I bought him a few months ago, but the little devil has doubled in size!

Can't wait to see pics of your new baby. :D

Hi Jess--that little itty bitty fish sounds so cute--does he/she have a name yet?

And yes, my avatar photo is Pearl, my white telescope. It is a funny angle--taken sort of underneath her. She is a very sweet fish and can't see well at all. :)

I think I am going to name my new little Pearlscale, Moochie.

The batteries are charged, and I will post some pictures on the picture forum!

ps. Wynkin, I love the angle of the picture in your avitar. It's neat!

Touchofsky, speaking of size, that little calico telescope I got was about 1/2" when I got him in December, and when I compare this new little pearlscale, I am amazed, little telescope eye (Jack in the box) is like double the size of my new pearlscale.

It is crazy how fast the little ones grow. Popcorn is such a cute name.

I saw an Albino telescope at one of our LPS recently and I was about ready to keel over! The little fish had soo much personality and I wanted to take him home soo bad! Is was absolutely tiny! An inch or less! I've seen fantails and commons that small but never a telescope! And his adorable little red eyes! :wub: -sigh- bummer that my tank isn't done cycling yet or that little baby would have come home with me in a heart beat!

Jessica,

I like the name Popcorn, too, especially for a pearlscale. Feel free to use it, if you have a fish that seems to suit it :D

I am glad that the little ones grow quickly. I was a little frightened when I brought Popcorn home, because he was just so darn small!

Errrika,

BTW, I love the name Lurch the Loach.

Lurch the Loach is my favorite fish!!!!!! Is that bad that I like him more than my other fish??? He just has SO much personality. I know some people think theyr'e creepy, but I think he has the cutest little face!!!! Plus he isn't gold yet, he's PINK and loves my albino cory cats. Maybe he thinks they're related :lol:
