- Wraith (largest)
Wraith had the roughest time in shipping and has a tear in her dorsal. When I opened the box, she was stuck on her side and breathing heavily. When I put them in the tank, she was still stuck on her side at the bottom for a while, but she recovered really quickly; within only a few hours.
- Specter (2nd largest)
Specter is the most inquisitive and curious one. He was the first to start sifting through the sand and pecking at the fake plant. He tries to eat the plant @2:46.
- Poltergeist (2nd smallest)
Poltergeist is a trouble-maker; he kept picking at Wraith when she was trying to recover from shipping, so I had to put him in a colander for a little while. He's leaving her alone now that she has recovered, but you can see him nip at Specter's fin @3:26. Will have to keep an eye on him...
- Haunt (smallest)
Haunt is a little more independent than the other fish. And for such a tiny little thing, he sure is strong.

Four beautiful young pinky bristol shubunkins are now living in my 75 gallon tank. The term "pinky" means they are matte white fish with black button eyes, and you can see the pink gill tissue through their gill covers since they lack the reflective guanine in their skin. These four were spawned in December, making them about 8 months old right now. They are from Gary Hater (CincyRanchu on Goldfish Keepers Forum). Due to an unfortunate miscommunication, the fish were shipped to my old address, which is 3.5 hours away! So on Saturday I drove all day long, through Minnesota State Fair traffic and 95+ degree weather, just to get them to my house safely. Not exactly how I wanted to spend my Saturday, but I'm just glad they're here now and doing well!

The tank has a 20 gallon sump with a wet/dry filter and a 25 watt UV sterilizer plumbed in-line. The lights are four 55 watt 6500K compact flourescent bulbs (only two are switched on in this video), the sand is CaribSea Tahitian Moon Sand, and the plant is a Marineland floating Giant Bamboo.
