  1. What a little cutie! She seems to compensate well for not having a tail
  2. I don't know if you are in the USA but Ken from Dandy Oranda has bubble eye goldfish in his auctions sometimes. His look decent and don't cost as much as some of the other types.
  3. No advice, Just wanted to say your pearlie is adorable! Love the telescope eyes
  4. Beautiful fish! I just love the chubby little pearly butts
  5. So cute! I love it Do you keep the pond netted?
  6. Great recommendations and a good way to help folks who are new to goldfish keeping
  7. I think you can make a cute little pond out of that but you may want to make another larger one in the future (I know I did) lol Here is a calculator to help you figure out how many gallons in the pond http://www.thepondwarehouse.com/pond/pond-calculator.html When I put the numbers in I got closer to 150 gallons but definitely check it out for yourself.
  8. TonySydney love the look of your tank and your fish are beautiful! Is that black gravel? What kind of plants are in your tank?
  9. I would guess that many fish have not survived being shipped when not done properly or with some forethought. I know I have received fish that didn't make it during shipment. Not a nice thing to happen. Some people will use FedEx Priority overnight and only ship on certain days of the week so fish are not left sitting over the weekend or over a holiday. They will double bag the fish, some bags will have square bottoms. The boxes are insulated and bubble wrap and other materials are used to cushion the box and to make a secure fit. The fish are prepared a head of time by fasting them for several days. Depending on where or who you buy from they should explain their own procedure. And when receiving fish by mail it would be a good idea to be home to be able to accept delivery and get them out of the box and into their new tanks. I have had bettas, guppies and bn pleco shipped but never a goldfish. I have been watching Ken Fischer (DandyOrandas) auctions and would really love to get one or two of his goldies. Just not in my budget at this time but maybe some day....If you go to his website you can see where he explains how they ship their fish.
