  1. It's spring and nice here. Just come and visit me in the big apple. I will assure you worth the trip.
  2. I couldn't find any shipping curriers to help me ship alive fish. None of the UPS or Fedex store ship alive fish in my area. Anyway, here are some updated pics that I took today. They are currently 2.5 month old and 2-2.5" in size. Color and head growth/wen growth is very much visible. The ones in the pics are smaller ones in the batch. But I think they are very fat and cute already.
  3. These are lionchus meaning they will have a huge Wen of lion heads and with a smooth curvey back of a ranchu. I'm glad you guys like them. Does anyone here keep lionchus?
  4. I haven't had a chance to make a video for these guys. However, I did post video in my other thread which I posted a few weeks ago. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/90098-lionchu-frys-at-7-weeks/
  5. I'm on Northern Blvd and Main Street in Flushing. One hour driving is not far at all. I can even probably deliver for a small fee if you order 5+ fish.
  6. <TEXT>Hi guys,I have about 8 baby lionchus for sale due to lack of space. They are currently 1.25" - 1.50" and two months old. I got them when they were less than 0.5". Color change will start between 3-4 months old and they will be in full red or red/white. Parents pics available upon request. I'm asking $30 each and local pick up in Flushing Queens (11354).I have been doing 100% w/c daily and two 100% w/c on weekends. Food: live baby brine shrimps, frozen blood worms, brine shrimp, Hikari Saki purple pellets, blue fry pellets are being fed 6-8 times a day.Just a side note, you would not be able to find these Thai bloodline lionchus in your local fish store unless your LFS do import them from Thailand. Majority of ranchus or lionheads that you have seen in the store were from China. I would have kept all my fish if I have enough room to set up more tanks. These are really my gems and hopefully I can find a good home for them. I"m just selling some of my fish to make room for my other ones. Thanks for looking
  7. I took those pics two days ago and I wish they can grow from 1" to 5" in two days. LOL..
  8. They will start changing color at 3-4 months old and they won't keep the gold color because their parents are red and white. So some of the frys will turn into either full red or red/white.
  9. I hope they will turn out to be show quality. BTW, they are Thai bloodline lionchu and their parents look awesome.
  10. Thanks guys. Here are two close shot of the babies.
  11. I have 22 frys currently in a 31" x 22" x 7" tub. 100% w/c daily. Two 100% w/c per day on weekends. Diet: live baby brine shrimps, hiakari frozen blood worms and blue pack Saki pellets for frys - feed 6+ times a day.
  12. I plan to buy an auto fish food feeder that will dispense food at least 4 times a day (within 12 hrs). Can anyone recommend any? Thanks
  13. The fish store in flushing.. I dont remember the store name. by flushing hospital
  14. Thanks guys. I really hope they will grow to two handers. I've heard Rynukins could grow to 8". Feeding them can also be abit of tricky (avoid of overfeeding, SBD since they are so round).
  15. Well, there are still eggs laying around at the buttom of the tank. I guess they are too busy chasing each other around. and checking out their new temp home.
  16. Guys, How would I know these eggs are going to hatch? Currently they are look whitish and abit of in gray. The male is continue chasing the female, but not as much as before the egg laid.
  17. Hi all, I've like to share some pics with you all. These two about 4" Ryukins I picked up from my LFS today. They look very healthy and beautiful.And I'm so excited that there are eggs all over the tank. I suspect these two are a pair. The one (I'm assuming the male) keep chasing the smaller one (the female). I'm new to Ryukin and I appreciate for any advice/comments on what are their special needs in terms of water quality and feeding routines.
  18. My nitrate was at 13 PPM before a w/c. I'm cutting down feeding from twice a day to once a day. The fish just gulping at the surface once the time, but he goes down look for food too. So that tells me he is able to sink down. Other time when he is not looking for food, he would just belling up float at the surface. He looks like in sleep. I'm afraid he is getting used to this belly up floating posture.
  19. I dumping the pellets into the tank while they are gulping at the surface. They do that whenever I approach to the tank. I've done it for a while now. I tried to drop the food at a different spot away from the fish, so the food can sink to the buttom. But they still come up to the surface look for more once they are finished all the food at the buttom of the tank. I only feed pro-gold and peas. But I did feed them frozen bloodworms once a while. The fish look fine when they are not been fed for a day. I feed them twice a day with small amount of progold in the morning and some green peas at night. Nitrate is always low since I do 80% w/c twice a week, but I haven't checked nitrate level lately. Thanks for your reply.
  20. Hi All, One of my lionhead started to stay at top of the water surface with belly up. He does that after a meal, and I believe the main reason causing this problem is he gulps air try to find food at the surface of the water. All my fish come to the surface during feeding time, so they are kinda used to searching food at surface which it is a bad habit since they are gulping down air. I feed them green peas and pro-gold pellets and I predict soon the other two lionhead will have the same problem if they started come to surface look for food very often. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?
  21. My Betta is in a 20G heavily planted community tank. Oh boy, he just couldn't stop swimming around and exploring the tank. He is also very gentle towards other fish in the tank, he behaves like he is the only fish in the tank. I highly recommend getting at least a 5g tank for your betta. From what I read Betta can only live couple weeks in a cup or bowel, but their average life span is 3 years or more depend on how much care they have been receiving. I lost several bettas my self by putting them in those plastic boxes with vents in a 10g, they need space to swim and exercise to be healthy.
  22. Thanks Fred, dang,, look the price of these meters. I never expected this hobby can be that costly. haha.. Do u need a meter like that? we can joint purchase one.
  23. Are there any devices or methods to measure how much oxygen has in one particular fish tank? Fish is not gasping at the surface of water and act normal doesn't mean the tank is well oxygenised, but because it just have enough oxygen for the fish. But we could never know how much the oxygen it has in the tank and what is the max amount of the oxygen it can have give this valume of water.
  24. I used to make my own beefheart mix for my discus too. One thing I know for sure is feeding beefheart would pollute the water quickly. So if you want to feed them to your GF anyway, then large water changes are required and w/c preferrably carry out after the feeding.
