New Fish From Dandy Orandas

Meet Navi (nah-vee), the newest member of the Solid Gold gang!  She is a red/white butterfly telescope from Dandy Orandas and she arrived on Tuesday, November 25th.  Navi arrived in pretty good shape except for a slight break in the leading ray of her dorsal fin.  It probably won't heal quite right (you'll always be able to tell there was a break), but I'm glad that she's at least still able to hold her dorsal fin upright.  Since I'm using her for breeding, not for showing, I'm not too worried about it.

She's begun to settle in, but I'm still feeding her sparingly so she can fully recover from shipping.  It's funny; when I drop a piece of food in her tank, you can clearly tell when she detects the smell.  She'll just be drifting about all peacefully, but as soon as the smell of the food hits her nostrils, she becomes a typical food-crazed foraging goldfish!  It's very cute. 



Here's an unboxing video in which I talk a little bit about how to quarantine your new fish, what I look for in a quality butterfly telescope, and I give my opinion about buying goldfish online from Dandy Orandas!


Here are some more pictures of Navi for your enjoyment.  I hope you love her as much as I do!  Here's to an uneventful quarantine.
