Hello all,

You may remember that I recently brought home 2 calico orandas as part of getting ready to start an oranda breeding program. The parents were introduced here:

http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/95965-oranda-calico-oranda-kirin-d-d-d/page__view__findpost__p__1135539__hl__oranda+calico+kirin__fromsearch__1

Not long into their QT, they decided that they didn't want to wait until spring, so they spawned. Then again. Then again. I finally took the hint, and decided to go ahead and learn about fry raising on the fly. I had some tremendous help on the way, including that from Captain Findus Goldfish (Federica), Fang, and Kulukan, and ashlee18. I don't know that any will make it in the end, as they had to survive my many learning curve mistakes. Nevertheless, there are 6 remaining. They are now in a 6.5L tub, getting constant attention LOL. Collectively, they are called The Fedes, in thanks to Federica that they had a chance at life at all, and should they survive to naming stage, they will have some very interesting names, like Swiss House, Atlanta Chaos, Carolina Fang, and Calikan ;)

So, without any further ado, may I please introduce to you my very first batch of oranda fry :D

Here we are, with our parents, on 12/13/11

LMAO!

They are so cute! And considered that you didn't have many eggs to begin with, 6 are not that bad at all :)

How old are they now?

(Edit, aside from the State name I find it funny as Caroline is my middle name :D )

So cute and so teeny tiny! I hope they don't accidentally inhale them.

Hehe. Thanks :)

They are safe from the parents, since I took the parents out of the tank a couple hours after the eggs are laid. Now all I have to worry is making sure they have enough food so they won't cannibalize each other :yikes

Very cool, I can't wait to see how they turn out. :)

Congrats on the very cute wee ones.

Thank you very much, Sakura & Amy! :)

that is awesome Alex..and you also got a new Sparkly :P

Thank you! :)

I saw the new Sparkly and had a huge grin! Many thanks! :D
