Japanese-themed goldfish tank!

i don't really think i can say anything that the photos can't say 100 times better. we are ridiculously proud of our work on this one:






four ryukins, one short-tailed tosakin, one fantail, and one oranda. we themed it as a scene following world war II, a crashed japanese Zero is rusting away in a tranquil bamboo forest that suddenly gets flooded and becomes home to a family of seven goldfish.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

they are...they're pretty awkward swimmers, but oddly graceful in their own way, kinda like a manatee performing ballet.

haha he was labelled as a ryukin, and looked like one in the store (albeit with a very shallow hump) but when we got him home, i looked at him and said "...is that a wen on his head?" and sure enough it was! he's our first oranda, and he's absolutely wonderful. i named him Bakunin after Mikhail Bakunin, my favorite philosopher.
