  • Baby on the Porch

    So I came home this evening from being out most of the day getting chores and such done and I found a very odd looking box on my porch. It looked like two boxes taped together with a present inside. Inside the wrapping paper was another box. Inside that was yet another box with a styrofoam cooler inside. Inside the styrofoam cooler was a little goldfish! A redcap oranda to be specific. The poor guy wasn't in the best of shape. The water was foul, he looked thin, and his fins weren't very nice. I brought him inside started acclimating him to my water. I found a little note inside the box that said, "Jonathan, I remember you talking about one of your forum buddies having goldfish in her pond and another who was accidentally breeding goldfish. I also remembered that your favorite type of goldfish was a redcap oranda and that you hadn't kept a goldfish for nearly 3 years. So when this guy was born in my fishroom I decided I'd send him to you! I hope you like him.

    Signed: (.......)
    1/10/13"

    Poor guy had been in the box for 10 days! No wonder he was in bad shape. Turns out an old acquaintance of mine from Germany sent him to me. And the forum buddies turned out to be Akari and Oso! I don't like you two very much right now! Get me into all kinds of trouble.

    But anyway, here is the baby goldy. He's in my 3g pico tank right now until I find better accommodations for him.

            Thanks . I'm glad he made it alive. Would have been awful to find a dead fish on my porch lol.

            It just is Oso! Your goldy babies I'm prepared for lol. I wasn't ready for this one though.

                    See now this is exactly why you ended up with that little 3gal tank, so you could put him in his own QT for a while.

                          He died. I think the long journey messed something up inside.
