Welcome to the family

After what has felt like forever it has come the time where I've finally got my fish!
He moves so quickly I can't get a decent picture!
 I feel like a proud mum right now with the new addition to the family. 
He moves so quickly I can't get a decent picture!
I'm not sure if my Shubunkin is male or female so he/she is currently not named but I'm so excited to finally have a pet again even though it isn't the puppy that I wanted. In about a week I'll be buying a few friends for him/her and fingers crossed whatever the sex of this fish is I'll get the opposite so they can have babies. But I have to wait till spring/summer for them to mate and then I'd need a 2nd tank as Shubunkins often eat their eggs!

No fishing!
I also need to buy a bigger tank for him/her but I got fed up of waiting and got a little impatient. I'd have to buy a new tank, buy new gravel then have to have the tank set up for three days with a filter. I also lost the white, black and gold Shubunkin I wanted a week ago due to this so knew it was time to just buy it already

Do you have fish? I'd love to see any pictures you have.
