The Black Moor
There's lots of advice on not mixing the 'fancy' breeds of goldfish with traditional single tail fin fish. Maki holds his own and after Fry arrived he's found someone to bond with.
He's been sick a lot. That orange smudge in the background was Maki's original tank mate, Tekka Maki, who died within a week. I guess there was an infection in the tank but Maki survived.
Maki is shortened from Kappa Maki. Both fish were named after sushi.
I'm careful to watch for damage to Maki's eyes because they protrude from his head and also for signs of swim bladder infection. Once I had a Black Moor who lived almost entirely upside down after an infection ruined his ability to swim up right.
Employment! - I've found employment! Woohoo! I finally get to utilise my registration. I firmly pin this on starting blogging again. And not my superb interview skills.
