Four weeks ago I got my first goldie in a long time, a gold Oranda we named Xenia. As time went by we realized she was lonely, make that a three days of owning her we realized this. So we started hunting and stalking local fish stores that sell Ryukins and Orandas, me really wanting a Ryukin. Finally a friend who works at Petsmart called me and told me they had a really nice shipment of Orandas come in. I went down after work and saw this pathetic excuse for an Oranda, red veiny fins and black ammonia burns. Just two weeks of good quality water and meds turned him around to looking like a normal goldfish. We ended up naming him Phil, short for Philoctetes from Hercules. A few days ago I felt brave and put Phil in with Xenia, they haven't left one anothers side since. Both have full run of a 40 gal tank and once we move and they are big enough both will go in a 70 gal tank. So much more personality then my grumpy bettas lol. Gosh forbid I don't feed the Orandas twice a day then I got the "mom your starving us" face. In the picture, which I took after I'd kicked up sand in the tank, Xenia is the solid gold one and Phil is the red and white.
