  1. Wow, what a gorgeous selection! Serg, if you don't mind me asking can you recall the price of the fish at the place you went to?

    If i recall correctly, they were less than $20 for two.

    Butterflies are so cool! We don't have such nice fish in Montreal:(

    This winter bubbleyes were in almost every store for some reason

    That shot is awesome pony, are you on instagram?

  2. WOW! Thank you all for the very nice comments and complements on my new ranchus, I enjoy browsing pictures of everyones fish, so I'm glad I can share mine with you.

    Wow! Super sharp, in their adorable roundness!

    Treasure that little shop . . .


    Thank you! I do treasure the new spot, along with the other fish stores that carry decent goldfish. They are few and far.


    New to these parts.

    Your fish are beutiful.

    How big are they?

    Hello Hyde, welcome, and thank you. I don't post frequently, but I am going to try to be a regular poster. The atmosphere is very friendly and fun here on kokos from what I've seen. Cant think of a better way to share our love of these fish. :)

    These little ranchu are about 4" body size.

    Oh I see you got my Ranchus all safe ... now just ship them to me :lol

    These are not the Chus you're looking for.

    *waves hand in front of him*

    absolutely jealous! you'd never just 'find' goldies like that here :(

    The trade off to good fish stores, and decent access to imported goldfish, is a ridiculously high cost of living.

    Nice ranchus! It will be interesting to see how their colors change over time. :)

    Definitely Sakura! My guess is that they will fade and keep the shiny scales. I would be completely thrilled if they darkened the black pigment like Tora, another tiger ranchu I saw on the forum.

    :o they're so beautiful!!! They'll look very fine together. Now, let's see them in their tank!!

    Theyre in a grey sterilite tub for qt at the moment. Hopefully all goes well and ill post in tank shots in a few weeks. I'll try for some overhead shots this weekend.

    They are GORGEOUS, where did you get them?!? I can't find nice ranchus around here to save my life.

    Thank you fishtankbabe. Its a koi specialist shop called Eastern Nishikigoi, in westminster. They had some awesome pearlscales, butterflies, calico ryukin, and decent sized ranchu. Best part is discount when you buy two. Some fish were sick, ive come to expect that everywhere though.

    I was not a Ranchu fan until I just opened this thread

    Wow, I feel honored to have opened that change in perception. I hope you find a ranchu soon to call your own. I like all types of goldfish but my girlfriends favorite is the ranchu.

    I found that lately I've been using this mantra quite a lot on this forum:


    Lol from all the subtle and not so subtle mentions of theft I've seen n the board, my mantra is now 'lock the doors! The goldfish people are coming!'

  3. Beautiful fish, good luck on waiting out your demekin's color change lol

    Gorgeous :)

    I may be totally blonde on this... but what are the 12 points???

    1)dorsal, 2-3) two eyes, 4)mouth, 5-6)pectorals, 7-8)paired pelvic fins, 9-10)paired anal fins, 11-12)paired caudal fins, all colored black. :)

    I had to think about it for a sec too shell, and the closest I get to blonde are the greys my dad gifted me at 27yrs old lol

  4. Great start so far! I think golds look great in dark colored tanks because of the contrast.

    My Marineland Canister is rated up to 100 Gal with 360 GPH, its enough filtration for 2 small goldfish and 1 pleco?

    I say it is, I would even say it's enough for two adult golds and a small compatible species of pleco such as rubbernose/bristlenose.

    Make sure you don't add a common type of pleco which will get too large and may eventually try sucking on your goldfish, hurting/killing them in the process.

  5. Congrats on taking in a rescue. When I free up some space, I will keep an eye out for a similar fish in need.

    Oranda fish, that's very cool of your big chain store. I would love to see that as a more common practice. I'll find out if the local animal shelter takes in fish on their 'pet relinquishment' days.
