*smiling large* She's here, Eric... :yahoo:

...6.75" of squirmingly energetic loveliness! :D: She was pretty pinked up on arrival, but boy is she healthy, curious and active.

You asked for pictures....muahahahahaaaa....

Can't get a great pic of it yet (though if you know what you're looking for you can see it in the pics already posted), but this fish has a deformed anal fin on its left side. I wasn't worried about the raggy caudal fin healing, but the anal is truly screwed up--like it was crushed or something. It will never fan out like the other....:(

I wonder....did anyone else get a deformed fish in this growout?

I thought that was taken care of. As you know, Matt just had a baby. I will make sure that it is taken care of shortly.

Matt intends to start shipping again soon, and will send out a replacement fish as soon as he gets started. He and is wife have been kind of tied up. ;)

Wow! I didn't even know he was pregnant! Congrats Matt! :cheer:

That's very sweet! Thanks for talking to him for me, Carl. I really really appreciate it.

I've been fairly absent from the board and tied up with a lot of things myself. Like a hand (my right one of course) with a nasty compound fracture and a sudden split from my other half who moved out just after the breakage, taking my stepdaughter with him. So I'm running a 15 acre farm with a herd of 6 warhorses, several schools of koi, a colony of 30+ cats, and my gardens one-handed and all by myself, with little time left for the pleasure of everyone's company here and at other parishes. I've just been so very absent in more ways than one.....:yes:

*LOL* Or it's gonna be a stunner in my artwork.....

I'm beginning to have a whole new appreciation of Gimpy. That little fish went through 2 weeks alone before moving to the other QT, which is a ferally frightening thing for a schooling fish. She looked to me for companionship across the desk and we became fast friends. Even now she's right up there with Mikado (the 'real' Omosako SU straight from Omosako) looking for MY attention. It's amazing that they have a visual memory.....

Thanks Debbie. You're so sweet! :yes:

Other than not being able to do the grunt work around here, it's been really peaceful and relaxing. Which is a nice and much needed thing, but...I sure would like some help building three sets of filtration so I can get the ponds ready for their new charges. Unfortunately, no one I know locally has the knowledge or expertise to even attempt it. Alone has its perks and deficits....;)
