Dandy Orandas Butterflies Update

A few weeks ago I set up my five adult Dandy Orandas butterflies in a 40 gallon tank so we could appreciate them fully for a moment in side-view.  We typically only get to see them from above, since they live in a 127 gallon tub in my basement fish room.  They're all doing very well and looking beautiful and super cute.  After this they went back into the 127 gallon tub and spawned the very next day, so now I have tons of butterfly fry growing out in the 40 gallon tank.  I hope you enjoy the video and photos!

    1. I got Monocle as a freebie along with the other fish that I purchased because he lost his eye when he was originally shipped to the states from China. But he gets around just fine with one eye and I still think he's cute. :)

  6. Hi All,

    I recently moved to Edina, MN. I Love ryukins and Orandas. I have setup a small tank at my place and I am looking for some quality ryukins and orandas or butterflies. Can someone suggest me a good place to get them.

    Thanks
    Kamal
