Nice looking fish. Have any other bubble eyes? I was going to try them but those eyes can be so sensitive.

only sensitive if there are sharp objects in the tank. Its like an egg yolk on water... thats the best wat to describe it. My pond has only smooth plastic surfaces. They do have a little trouble eating though.

May I ask why they have trouble eating? I really don't know a lot about them.

Anne, they had trouble eating because they seem to not be able to find food very well. Their eye bubbles almost cover their eyes. Its actually a cruel disign for a for a fish when you really think about it

Tahnks for the compliments everyone. I am enjoying them

They look like an Oranda of some description. Personally, I wouldn't want to have fish like those, they look awful in my opinion, more like they have a cancer on either side of their face...
