  1. I mean if they are meant to live around 20 years or so on average and you see all these people who's fish lasted anywhere from 2 years to 10 years, are these premature deaths? I mean there are so many diseases, poisonings, illnesses, swim bladder issues, over crowding etc that ca just kill them off. Has anyone here actually had a goldie die of just good ol' fashioned old age?
  2. Cheeto - My Calico Fatail (Girl) Totoro - My 'Blue' Oranda (Male) Mrs. Chubbs - My Calico Fantail/Bubble eye hybrid, lol Sebastian - My icke stunted forever Red Cap Oranda Boo - My Small Calico Fantail (Male) Banana - My stumpy finned Golden Ranchu (Male) And Mr. Snail my Golden Apple Snail
  3. Hes a wriggler, he likes to do ballet, he swims in circles alot, they dont seem to bother him, i kinda feel for the little guy, i think he finds it hard to swim up to the top to get food with everyone else, and when he grazes on the bottom he hasnt got very good aim and sometimes misses food right infront of him lol
  4. I actually have a confession to make, he's your Banana's twin, he's the reason i called him banana, He's a golden Ranchu lol And i dont know he has his pectoral fins, its just they are so small and tiny, like little stimps, so i dont know if he was injured but they are both exactly the sae size. So it might be a deformity, hes like Nemo.
  5. I have a couple of pics but my computer is acting up, guh
  6. So my new Ranchu is called Banana, and he has no Pectoral fins! They are just little stumps, its so funny because when he swims he moves his tiny stumps crazyily. But so far he is doing fine. Just thought id share my new special baby!
  7. Totoro does it ALL the time, sooo cuteeeeeeeeee
  8. Yup both my local P@H stores sell Fantails as Orandas
  9. A5 aquatics in Nuneaton, Hinckley is AMAZING. The largest selection of good quality goldfish i have ever seen. A whole room of just koi and Goldies <3
  10. I brought two today for £7.98 at my lfs, (good deal i think!) i almost didnt have any because they guy couldn't find them because they only get "around 5 a week" and they were hiding at the bottom in between the other larger plants. Anyways im so excited (they are so fluffy and awesome!) What are your guys experiences with them, ive heard they dont need alot of great care, they keep algae down to a minimum (which is good) and goldies dont like them that much. But do apple snails like to munch on them? Since they are keen algae eaters!
  11. My fish always seem to like the snail jut as i am about to hand feed him... >.> They couldnt care less abut him any other time....
  12. Amen to hat! I just think its everyone's choice, if they have that kid of money then why not? I saw a huge oranda with great coloring, body shape and a nice big wen and fins for £25.99 the other day, i thought it was a bargain!
  13. Shes gonna beak my heart when she passes, i saw her about 3 weeks before i brought her on a school trip (my teacher needed doggie bags) And 3 week later when i went to get another fish, she was still in there, poor little girl, so i snapped her up. Obviously noone wanted her cuase they thought she was too deformed. Her bubble has grown a little to ive noticed. My unique baby <3
