  1. A beautiful fish no matter what it's color is. It is just gorgeous before and now. Only time will tell what color it will end up!!
  2. Wow, they're beautiful!! Best of luck with them.
  3. Oh.... congratulations, they are adorable and well worth the wait. It is so fun to watch the tiny ones grow up! The red cap is so cute!
  4. Thanks guys, Rai took most of the pictures, my camera wasn't co-operating for some reason. She is better at photographing the fish(steadier hands). She definately has my parents photography genes! We think Asher is a ryukin. we just couldn't pass him up. I am really enjoying my goldies. I've always had tropicals, so this is all new to me. Rai and I hope to try our hands at breeding our goldies for fun, hopefully some day!
  5. Thanks!! Rai's got her grandmother's photography gene. Thank you! We just couldn't pass him up. Such a beauty.
  6. Well, I thought it was a good time for an update on my goldfish. Rai and I have a new acquisition who is in quarantine at the moment. His name is Asher, we found him in a Petsmart we don't usually go to. He is a chocolatey metallic Ryukin. We couldn't resist him. I will be getting another tank when I go back home to New York in the beginning of June. A friend has a tank to give us! So, I'll split my guys up then. I have 7 goldies in all now. Piggy was my first one, she's a calico fantail. Next is Fozzy, he's an orange oranda. Then Cerebus, a calico ryukin with a extra tail lobe. Then I found Victor who was a black oranda that has become more bronzey in color. The Rai and I went on a lfs expedition and we found Victoria, a large blue oranda. We both wanted her ,but I had room and she didn't, so..... We kind of share her. I then found Princess Peach who was a tiny white oranda that was in poor shape. She had a rough shipping experience. She was missing scales and rather thin. She just finished quarantine and went into the big tank. She has done wonderfully in quarantine and has grown and popped a wen to boot. She is very energetic and friendly. Asher is our last one. He is doing well now in quarantine and has learned that there is more than just floating food. He has been eating his metro meds and is doing well. He will let me hand feed him now. Victoria and Princess Peach. Victor! Check out those breeding stars. We hope to breed him with Victoria one day! Ms. Piggy This is little Cerebus. She's not as little as she used to be! She has three lobes to her tail. It's hard to capture in pictures though. Rai tried. And here's our newest guy. Isn't he something? His name is Asher. Thanks for looking!!
  7. They are so pretty, I love the red color that RG has. You have 2 lovely fish, congrats!
  8. They are adorable, congrats on your good lucky find!! BTW Ping and Pong are cute names.
  9. What lovely fish and a beautiful tank I don't think I have an individual favorite, they are all so nice.
  10. I love the before and after pictures. Their changes are absolutely amazing. Rai and I are going to split a progold package. Congratulations on their obvious good care!
  11. Congratulations on all your new babies! They fish are cute. I agree it is so much better and cheaper to build your own stands, the pet stores are flimsy and expensive. We picked up some old stereo cabinets from the 60's-70's that work great with a little work. You can usually find them very cheap and solidly made.
  12. What a wonderful Valentine's Day gift. It was meant to be....
  13. Congratulations, he's absolutely beautiful. I have a soft spot for blue orandas
  14. He is! No problem holding him.
  15. Rai and I have had an eye on this fish for months now and we finally caved and brought him home. We couldn't resist that cute face! He doesn't have a name yet! Suggestions?! He'll be going in my 55 after QT! Can't wait!
