Full Version: Telescopic Eyes Oranda!

I went to QH today and beside seeing "the largest puffer fish captured", 20% discount off all goldfish and some other promotion, a tub of Oranda with Telescopic Eyes.

They are small, head to tails about 2 inches only.

Unlike those I saw at the International Fish Show, these have eyes set by the side (those at IFS have eyes in front and can stare at you with both eyes. biggrin.gif)

I asked the cashier but she doesn't know where they are from. It is said those at the IFS are from Ipon Malaysia.

Aren't they cute? yes.gif

Seen here still in the plastic bag, I'll take nicer shots in a few days after they settled down.

They cost $3 each before 20% discount. ha ha ha.

Side Track: If you don't mind chinese ranchus, they have a few tubs of jumbo size with nice cheeks and sexy tails for $60 each. Long-bodied version though. sad.gif

Pic taken while they were salt bathing.

The fishes are very very weak. I'm not optimistic they will survive the QT. sad.gif
