    My newest wally-world grabs.

    is the telescope matte?

    the oranda is really eggy, with quite a short stubby tail.

    the red veins are from wally-world, there already looking 90% better after 2 days.

    Not bad finds for chain store buys. Yes they both look matte to me

    Glad you got them out of there and into a home with good care! All the fish at my local wally-world have ich and other horrible problems. I really like the white telescope. I'm not sure I've seen one that color before.

    The white fish is still a metallic. Matt fish have pink "soft" Gill plates and black button eyes. Have a look at "goldfish colours" on www.gsgb.co.uk.
