  1. It's been a while since i've update this little thread...soo...new pic of the pond, first off:


    Pond doesn't look great, but for a small little ecosystem it's doing very well. fish are fat, colorful, no disease.

    Since the last update, i've added two new fish, a calico ryukin and a gray oranda. the oranda died of bloating, unfortunately. today i discovered 1 small single-tailed baby goldfish too, i haven't seen any more babies. So now there is 7 fish in the pond. Still wanting to add 1 or 2 more, maybe another ryukin, since they've proven to me to be as hardy as the commets/commons.

  2. what im going to do is put some long plastic dowels in pots of the plants that would stick out, to the net rests on the top. i'll need to find something to keep it from going through the holes of the net though.

  3. so it's been a while since i've been here, and i have a small update:

    a crane ate my wakin > :(

    also that ryukin i got is doing great, even in the colder wheather, and keeping up with the other fish and eating just fine. i don't know why i was worried about adding him.

    so im thinking i need to build a cover.

    also it's very hard to tell buy the ryukin may or may not have a cyst. and that comet died, bloated and had a buch of white bumps on it's body.

  4. Hmmm I see some mixed feelings here...well I think I am going to try an oranda. A red cap, since the wen dosnt grow over the entire face. I put my tiny little ryukin in the pond, does fine with food and keeps up pretty well for such a small fish.

  5. So I went to a fish store today in hopes of buying a ranchu for my pond...they had some nice ones but the had like no wen (even on the 3 and 4 inchers). I like the wen. Is there any special food I should feed a ranchu for better wen growth or is the size on the when completely dependant on genetics? Or both?
