  1. Today is the day!!! Yayyyyy I'm so excited:)
  2. Oh no what a bummer!!!! ???? It looks like they have one once a month now so hopefully next time!!
  3. Hey, My butterflies are chasing!!!!! PPLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE give me eggs!! I would be one very happy lady. So spawning mops are in and fingers are crossed! If anybody wonders what that black thing is at the top of my tank. Its just the support. My tanks a lil to full. http://vid48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/IMG_0674_zpsx0oxw2z1.mp4
  4. They are beautiful!! Butterflies are my quilty pleasure lol! Enjoy watching them grow
  5. I have an oranda that has 2 kinks in the tail fins causing them not to flow as well as they normally would. I had this guy from a baby so he developed this as he grew. At first this really bothered me and i thought about trimming. I am pleased now i never did. I kind of don't really notice it any more. Think of it as a human having a mole or a birthmark its a imperfection that makes you, you. Nobody is perfect. So i guess its the same for our finned friends. Its so hard when you go online and see these amazing fish with stunning fins! If i was you i wouldn't do anything. But at the end of the day its your decision. All the best with what ever you decide to do.
  6. Im am so pleased to be apart of this forum! There are some really lovely, kind and caring people on here! Its so nice knowing that I'm not the only one who is totally and utterly obsessed with these beautiful, loving and funny fish!
  7. I am going to buy. I want to get 2 adult ish butterfly's that I am going to eventually try and breed. I already have a female and a male. This breed is extremely hard to find in the UK and I can only find them at star. U could call it my project for 2015
  8. Have you been before Jes? I went to their open day in October and was in goldie heaven!! All the pics I took are in this thread http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/119244-star-fisheries-open-day-very-pic-heavy/ I remember your thread. Those were and are awesome photo's you took. Felt like I could have been there myself. ******************************************************************************** Jes: I'm sure your going to have a blast if you go. You'll need to take lots of photo's also and post here for all of us to see new fish. Yes I'm going to this one. I will take pictures (if I rememb hehe) I can't wait I always love going to star. They have just had a brand new shipment in from China.

  11. Hey, Starfisheries have an open day on Sunday 25th of this month! They seem to every one once a month instead of a couple a year which is nice. Just thought I would share So if you are localish, check it out.
  12. The vent on the one I think is female does stick out. The other one which is giving me the identity issue doesn't. ????
  13. I think i can see some on the pectoral fins!! they are very small but are definitely a little raised. Do they become more noticeable when he is ready or wants to spawn?
  14. Not that i can see, but its a calico fish and has different colour specks on the gill plates. He (i hope) has been doing a little chasing. The vent on this fish is longer and narrower then the other fish i think is female.
  15. Hey, i just want to get some second opinions. I think i have one male butterfly and one female. I would like to know because i would like to use these fish as part of my breeding group in the future. What do you guys think?? Male: http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/imagejpg6_zpsc8e76f4a.jpg~original Female: http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/imagejpg7_zps98e92db7.jpg~original I could be completely wrong Thanks
  16. Hey, I just wondered if anybody knows of any goldie shows in the Uk this year?? I am down south of the country so if anybody knows any going on down here, that would be fab!! I have never been to show and would love to go. Thanks guys
  17. i mean will the high protein content of the saki lion head be to much for the baby butterflies? its 46% protein content. As the butterflies are young will it help with their development aswell? ( i no they won't grow wens )
  18. I feed blood worms and brine shrimp alternate every other day so i will keep doing that. i am NLS Thera A as he is with butterfly teles as well. i have another tank with just large orandas and they get saki lion head. i would move him to this tank but i would be over stocked. shall i mix my NLS and Saki together for the baby butterfly and baby Oranda tank? It won't be to much heavy for the butterflies?
  19. Oh yay I'm so pleased!! ????
  20. Hi guys, I have had this little guy for a few months now. He has really fattened up and grown since i got him. He is still very tiny, the video makes him look bigger than he is. He was sold to me as a baby Oranda. But I'm not seeing much of a change in wen growth yet. Im not sure what age they start to develop their wens. What do you guys think?? Thanks http://vid48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/IMG_0641_zpss03ambi1.mp4
  21. Cloud is my favorite. How about "Black Gold" for no name? Your tank and fish are amazing. Thank you I keep trying out different names, but nothing seems to stick. Same for my black ranchu, her name is supposed to be Ebony, but that doesn't actually stick, she's actually just known as 'black chu' Thanks Jes the best part of watching the little guys grow is knowing that I raised them from eggs, it's so rewarding seeing them fat and happy with the adults Oogs, Cloud, Cutiebean and Big Red were all from JKC, my two chocolate orandas were imports (I also have 4 black orandas, soon to be 8, that I plan to breed), Charlie, Ebony and Fathead were all from local fish shops where I used to live (Fathead was my first fish) and Pepper was from a really poorly run lfs where I live now and of course, the fry came from my own fish tanks Thank you Susanne Oh how lovely!! I'm desperate for my butterflies to breed!!! Any tips?
