Patience is not something I normally have, but these beauties are worth the hours of patient stalking to get pictures like this...
We have a beautiful pond, full of lovely fish which were left by the previous owners of our house. To be honest, I was a little dubious at first, but they are now dearly loved pets :)
After a horrible heron attack, we appealed on freecycle for a few more fish to restock our pond, and were given two beautiful Oranda. Stunning little fish, but not suitable for the pond.
We bought them a tank, and they were very happy in it. We bought them a bigger tank, and some friends, and they are now a lovely feature in our lounge (Buzz is staring at me from across the room as I write this- he always wants feeding!) Buzz is on the final picture, and is the cheekiest, loveliest fish ever :)
