Ronin has put on a lot of size, hard to tell in the pics because his pattern hasn't changed much. I gotta get better pics of Shinobi but and you'll see how that little bit of black in her dorsal fin is fading just as I had hoped when I got her.
Thank you, I'm debating adding another plant into the tank, but I like the open swimming space they have, especially since the tank is small.
You are correct my bubble eye was killed, and really it's my fault. She had been doing great but one day I came home and found her stuck to the powerhead. I should've gone with two lower power ones rather than one higher powered one. Lesson learned, sadly with a heavy price.
Hi Anielynn! Please don't fishnap them I love them! lol Pearl was about half her current size when I got her, and she looked exactly the same, just that her fins were a bit smaller (ratio to body size). I like that her fins are growing out large and 'showy'.
And I was thinking your tank looked like a 55 gallon and not the 100 gallon 10 goldfish require. lol Funny how pictures can be destroted like that.
Keep an eye out on Pearl I may come fishnap her.
Thanks Hidr, the tank is actually 60g's, so yeah of course not all these fish will be in there long term. Especially the shubunkins, they're just growing out and will be going to a pond.
I still have time to setup another 60g, if I do I will just move over a couple of the fancies, but if I don't, I will give the orange oranda (nameless) and the red/white ryukin to the same friend who is taking the shubunkins.
The pic isn't really distorted, they're just young goldfish
Thank you, I really wanted to keep it simple and easy to keep clean, and maximize my water volume. I'm running an xp3 on this tank for filtration so the water stays pristine.
haha those button-eyes are my faves! Thank you glad you like it, I've posted a video here if you're interested.
Nah it's only 60g, and eventually only 6 fancies will be living there (including Pearl). I wish I knew of a local show, I would enter her if there was one. She's not perfect though, has some minor fin imperfections, but she's a definitely my favorite
Thank you! I'll try for better pics soon, these were just kinda hurried and out of focus.
Thank you Kristi, you know, Pearl always steals the show and I've always felt that Apollo never gets the attention she/he deserves. Apollo is almost exactly like Pearl only a ranchu instead of a ryukin.
