  • This is why you should never leave me unattended.

    I've been at home by myself for over a week now, my only human contact comes from the fleeting moments I see my mom when she stops in to get some cloths before she heads back out to Hospice to sit with her friend, and when I find time to go down down there myself. After the loss of my little Ryukin, Lady Swimmy McNibblekins, to a bee sting, I couldn't HELP but take a peek at the goldfish when I went for crickets and worms for my gecko.

    I see, as I have many times before at this pet store, a gorgeous, pure white Oranda. The price? A whopping 15 bucks!! These people are nuts! The thing is only 2 inches long. I then remembered that the same store just 20 minutes away sells their small orandas for just 4.99 >:3

    So, I asked the guy about it and he price matched for me (not after he tried to say that their "small" orandas were the cheaper ones and that they only carried the "large" ones. I promptly came back with the size that purchased Magneto at from the other store for $4.99. Customers always right, dude! >=D).

    Anyways, he netted the fish out, and gave it to me for the $4.99 She's such a cutie! I told my self I wouldn't replace Swimmy, but I won't think of her as a "replacement" rather than an impulse buy that I just so happen to have room for LOL

    With further ado, the reason you should never leave your Akari's unattended:

          If the one guy had ever gotten back to me about his tank on CL, I would have had 4 of them. But I never heard back .

                Only four of my goldfish are gimpy! Bruce, Luna, Brain, Milotic, Spotty, Changey, Feebas and Seeking, the common I haven't named yet, and the fantail I haven't named yet are all perfectly normal! It's just Gimpy, Magneto, Dharma and the telescope that are a little special

                  Thank you! Changey is all white. Got him from the feeder tank as mostly black, hence his name (as lame and uncreative as it is XD)

                            Is her head yellow and her tail pinkish or is it just the picture?

                            Either way, she is beautiful.
