Yeah, I have an Angel in quarantine, but I'll be picking up more soon.

Wow. That'll be spectacular when all those crypts are filled in. I don't know what type of angel you want, but 8 silvers would look great in there. Wilds, if you could get your hands on them.

Thank you!
So far I have a Super orange koi, I had a gold koi, but the parasites overwhelmed him
I have a bunch of marble babies, but the size difference is too great to put them safely with the koi right now.
My husband really likes the pinoy, I'm fond of the pinoy zebra lace. I'd like to get another gold koi. I have a 125 I'll be setting up later, so I guess we can get a few types.

"Victor Newman" was added today, he fell into The Dutchess's life like an Angel(fish) from the sky. They danced and kissed, and now seem to be cohabitating quite well. He even has a V on his side. The lighting washes everything out, and I only have a phone with not much to adjust. But here is a FTS and a little video:
