2 new members in the family...I'm a hoarder!
« on: June 02, 2011, 07:45:38 PM »

So now I have two new members in the family!  Cheesy Copper Kate, the red telescope-eye, and Citrine, the fantail. Copper Kate was in the black moor section of the store, but I'm not sure if she actually is a black moor, because I had read somewhere that black moors can ONLY be black...not any other color. Either way, I was swept off my feet by those lovely bulbous eyes of hers.

Note how Citrine's color changed drastically within the first few hours of her being in my tank. I wonder why that is?  Huh She went from being a lemon yellow to a pastel peach, and the black on her back, fins, and tail has faded to a light gray.  Undecided

They are both very healthy, apart from a smidge of fin rot on Copper Kate's tail. It is healing, however, and I can see black smears around the area as a sign of recovery.

Enjoy the pics  Wink

True, a moor is a black telescope, no other telescope goldies can be called moors Smiley So you have a lovely little red telescope then Wink

They're so very beautiful! Love the colors Smiley

Thank you both!  Grin yaaaay, out of all the fish I've had I've never had a telescope before, just black moors. Copper Kate already took food out of my hand the first day I got her, despite how shy she seems. I say "she," but I'm not exactly sure of her (or Ciitrine ll's) jender. Any ideas?  Smiley

Pretty hard to tell from these photos Smiley How big are these fish? The bigger they are, the easier it should be to tell the gender Cheesy

They are each about an inch and a half long from the tip of the nose to the start of the tail.

How about waiting a little bit for them to grow older then? Cheesy
