My three fantails~
« on: February 18, 2010, 11:26:52 AM »

Hiya!

Took me quite a while, but I finally got some reasonably good photos of my fish (:

On the first picture we have... Cream and Honey ;p The most cuddly and playful ones~ They shine so nicely in between those green plants! Creamy's "eyelids" are kinda' reddish, which looks so lovely as a contrast to her shining white! (:

And on the second one we have Fläckis (sth like "Spotty" in Swedish), my pretty, pretty calico! He's a bit more hardcore than the two others. He's got only one metallic scale right above his gill cover (while the others are nacreous, as suitable in a calico), I love that scale!
Another thing about him is that he's got one black eye, and he looks a bit like a guinea pig from the front <3 The lower lobes of his caudal fins are curling a bit (:

One question though, as you may notice, my calico has a bit deeper body than the two others. Is he still a fantail or something more leaning towards a ryukin? I'm having a little trouble with deciding this d:

(Hope the pictures work...)

very cute fish.. Smiley
Your calico one is a fantail....not a ryukin.  He is very pretty.  I have a shubunkin that looks like him and has one black eye also...I read somewhere that is an undesirable trait...but that's ok we still love them right? Cheesy

Thanks (: So it's like I thought Wink

And yes, I love him~ I think that black eye is just making him cuter somehow (: By the way, I also noticed somewhere that it's not very desirable when the lobes of the caudal fin are folding either! :O But I think it just makes him prettier d:

Beautiful goldfish Smiley They look very healthy and happy. I love all the natural aquarium plants you have in there too.

How old are the goldfish? They look like they are still pretty young.

Thank you (: I got them about four months ago, but I honestly don't know how old they are! They were quite small when I got them, and they're still only 1.5 inch long. So they must be pretty close to one year maybe? At least not older than that! d:

Those plants are growing like crazy! I have to trim them all the time so the food won't get stuck by the surface in the top leaves... xD

Hi Nossie,

gee, they are cute and I love their names too.
The photos are really good too, so clear.

Cream, Honey and Calico are a lovely Trio and they can pose to have their pic taken...cute !

Thank you! (:
It took quite a few tries to get any good photos of them... they're kinda' lively ;>
And Calico was really... he was so stealthy and almost hiding whenever I tried photographing him! xD

I cant wait till you get a bigger tank, Nossie. I know I'm getting a ten gallon this weekend to take to my moms house, that way when I go home for the summer I can grab Tiger and Sonorus and plop them in there for a bit. Smiley

Me neitherrr!! I'm aiming for a 200 liter (about 53 gallon) tank (: But of course, even bigger would make me happier Wink
I always wanted to get some black moor, they're so cute <3 we had some of those in elementary school, but the teachers or the kids didn't know how important cycling the tank was... so all of them ended up dying... *shivers*
Either way, I wish to have a cute little moor and name him Mr. Popo (: If possible, I'd love to have a redcap oranda! Or a generally white and red oranda (:

I'll definitely post some pics of it as soon as it'll be up and running (: which may take a few months... xD I prolly won't buy it until sometime in June when our bigger apartment should be ready (:

When I bought my little babies they had two pretty big red caps in a tank next to these (: I'd say they were about 5 inches long!
I wanted one so bad but I knew I didn't have space for it... c:

I know how that feels... I love fish.. I spent almost two hours in the fish section of the pet store looking at fish (They had a huge ass koi in the tank.. I was like "You poor thing.. You need a pond.. I wish I had a pond...Sad") I saw quite a number of lovely fish I wanted to take home, but all I have is a ten gallon that I cant use yet.. Sad
