"Steve" is officially in His New Home

Post by goldfishbetalover on Mon Dec 23, 2013 5:42 pm

Steve, the new calico goldfish came to our home as posted in another message last week
he was in his own tank until yesterday!
I broke down and put him in his permanent home the 75 gallon with Rose, Oscar and Micah
His previous owner said he had him for 5 months and the tank in which he resided appeared to be well taken care of.....
The 4 of them are getting along famously....well, most of the time!
Rose tends to be "BOSS" so she has certainly made Steve aware of this!
Loving my fish!

You just want a picture to see if there is any family resemblance.  Wink Laughing

most likely know this but I didn't....true I am somewhat technologically slow...but the photo only shows a portion of the 75 I had to click on it to see the whole picture...just talking to Shell and she said everyone knows that
BUT...just in case you don't know click on the photo for full view
Night!!!!! oh ps that's an angry bird sitting on the top........!

No worries - we'll figure it out when I come up next! It is not the forum, it is just a format issue, I think!

I have not seen a goldfish with colouring like that. He looks so cool. What a great addition to your tanks.

Very cool looking fish,
