  1. My old oranda did the exact opposite of what Treasure did, he started a gorgeous browny bronze colour and changed over time to a full on gold.
  2. Thank you guys for the lovely compliments you have given me
  3. I would quarantine but I don't have a 10g to do it with, the tank is a 150 gallon, and the comets are likely to move to the pond over summer
  4. I just fixed the link, you can now see all my old fish pics too
  5. I would post individual pictures but that would mean 20+ pictures
  6. I just realised the link doesn't work. Here is a link to an album I just made http://s1300.photobucket.com/user/Luke_Harris15/library/My%20fish%20-%20Past%20and%20Present?sort=3&page=1
  7. Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts recently. I am back now and am showing you my new fish, my rarest fish so far is in here as well, on Saturday I turned up at my local pet store and convinced my mum when I saw a blue oranda that I needed it, she was annoyed as she said no more fish after the last death (I still have the old ones but one died and she thinks it is due to tank conditions though everything was perfect) but she turned when I said " if the wen grows perfectly, given its shape , fins and colour, it cold reach thousands of dollars." Considering it was $9.70 (AUD) I had to get it, i also brought a black moor and a ryukin both of which are also gorgeous. I thought I would share the beauty of these creatures with you. http://s1300.photobucket.com/user/Luke_Harris15/library/?sort=3&page=1
  8. A beautiful Ryukin, gorgeous hump on it

  12. Please Help I have just finished a water change and whilst using the siphon a tank gravel sized rock fell on one of my catfish I have left him/her in the tank but in a little tank I have put him/her in so he/she has no chance of being eaten if he/she dies He/she is one of the 6 catfish in with the goldfish and I have already lost 1 goldfish today and don't need/wan't to loose another fish today PLEASE HELP he/she can swim but not very well or far
  13. I know how you feel I have been waiting for the fancier fish for ages and when I saw them I wen't of my head with excitement and had to get some
  14. Other than a private breeder that lives on the other side of the river too me Petbarn is the best place for goldfish and where I am the petbarn fish (Inc goldfish) are of very good quality and have started selling rarer fish rather than just Moors comets shubies etc
  15. I have kept platys before and they had babies on the 24th of December but when they were unwell they would drop dead so in the space of a year I went from like 20 to 0 to the topic I ca 't really think of anything but swim bladder, but I know it isn't because she has lost her appetite where as with swim bladder the fish wont loose it's appetite
  16. I would try again but he is back to normal again (He stresses me out a lot) if only he would make his mind up
