Calico & Black Butterflies Galore!



My new group of goldfish from Dandy Orandas have been here for exactly two weeks now and they seem to be getting more comfortable in their new home. If you didn’t see the unboxing video, you’re really missing out! Watch it here → EPIC Dandy Orandas Live Goldfish Unboxing

It’s been a while since I’ve had any of my fish in an indoor aquarium, and it’s so nice to be able just to simply turn my head and watch my fish staring happily out at me while I’m sitting at my desk working on a project for Solid Gold. What a nice change of pace. I hope you enjoy these photos of them. As you’ll notice from the photo captions, they all have names now too!  Loki and Mugen are my two favorites of the group because of their deep, round body shapes and full butterfly fins. Do you have a favorite?

    Oh my gosh! Bernie looks exactly like my old ryukin (except for the big eyes) that I rescued a bunch of years ago. he died of dropsy unfortunately. the daycare I saved him from named him spotty. Bernie even has the white \x26quot;scarf\x26quot; that spotty had:) he liked the rare banana nibble as a treat
