    Mix up!

    Post by Nataliey on Thu Jun 30, 2011 4:32 am

    Last week id been waiting to have my black orchid DT male delivered but there was a major problem with Royal Mail delivering them parcel was only coming from Plymouth and somehow they had decided it had to come by airmail up north Shocked i also thought they came by van anyway! But anyway they turned up on Thursday rather than wednesday as orginally planned and the seller had realised when it was too late that she'd mixed the bags up and sent me someone else's male.

    I was going to send to the real owner but they had said i should just keep him which i have done, so i didnt get my lovely DT boy until today he's lovely

    Look:

    Thanks wayne and siobhan il put a photo of the male i wasnt supposed to get he was listed as a HMPK tiger male apparently from Roxy, dont know whats tiger about him no stripes or anything but is a lovely colour...the DT male is the one i bought orginally.

    The glass fish are just ornaments my silly postman shoved them through the letter box and you could clearly see it was a tight squeeze and broke the plastic box they where in along with the green fish!

    The blue one strangely enough hasnt got eyes painted on at all i may need to do it myself looks odd Shocked

    Sorry Embarassed i wouldnt say impossible but just very frustrating as the males are quicker than say a male with a large tail and i find them to be aggressive a little more than say one of my HM males.

    I do prefer your 'chosen' boy although the pinepple mg type guy is pretty...
    you should ask roxy about the tiger thing... "is it just a new 'gimmick' name for the two toned beard?"

    If you are breeding then do sell the guy if he doesn't fit with your other fish.... it's hard to do but tank space fills fast and may suit someone else perfectly. Better to do do sooner rather than later if you do decide to let him go.
