  1. White cloud mountain minnows Some are gold, some are normal (brown) and some are albino. I breed them and at the moment there are about 15 in the goldfishtank.
  2. "Underwater love"......a song by portishead Was the perfect song for the video
  3. Yes he's fine He does that when swimming fast. He's one of my most active and healthy fish as you can see in the video . They were very sick a few weeks ago and that's why he still has a split tail and maybe that's why he has his fin down more than normal.
  4. I made a funny video of my fish. Hope you enjoy it! http://www.zuza.nl/userImagesBig/7/8/a/78a...0f067a7ba45.wmv
  5. He hallo, wat leuk! Voor mij ook nooit meer zonder 2 weken apart, maar in dit geval heeft dat helaas niks geholpen.
  6. I moved since december to a new house in Amsterdam and since I moved bad things happend to my fish. First I bought Dancer, a new veiltail that looked very healthy and he was in quarantine for 2 weeks. When I put him in my fish got very ill and my baby Oranda died completely white from the fungus. Medicine helped the rest but the oranda didn't seem to react and got worse. Now the desease is under control and they are all happy and healthy again. I don't know if it was Dancer who introduced the disease or it was the change of water in Amsterdam that made my fish ill I'm still doing weekly waterchanges to help the fish and get rid of the medicine in the water. I hope my tank will get it's old glory back and have good hopes beceause some of the fish are showing mating behaviour. My mirror scale was also in very bad shape. He always seems skinny but when the desease was at it's worse he was almost dead laying on the bottem and not moving his skinny body. Now he's big and fat again and swimming like he was before. In my local petstore they have beautifull ranchu's and I wanted a ranchu for so long. Now I don't dare to buy one since Dancer ruined my tank and fishhealth. Hoping they get another shipment later.........
  7. Today I tried to take some pictures of my white cloud minnows when my oranda yawned. Just in time to put his big yawn on a pic What a mouth!
  8. Hi, no I mean a really mirrorscaled goldfish. As you can see my fish on the pictures He has no scales on his body and a line of exceptional large ones on his side. The line on his side in my picture is only a row of scales 1 scale high. The individual scales are as big as the shiny line on his side is high. It's not quite clear on the picture but if you look well you can see what I mean. This trade is normally only found in carps. I posted my fish on the koi vet messageboard and they told me it's not a carp, maybe a cross but the hybrids normally do not look like him at all.
  9. I do, but only one and he's spotted. So he's white with some black markings and dark red tail and fins. He is a really nice fish and I hope he fathers some small new longfinned minnows for me But I live in the Netherlands so I can not help you with that. In some big petshops here you can order any fish you like.
  10. I have a Oranda with the same problem, but he floats after feeding. If you stop feeding for a few days it will probably stop. But in the case of my Oranda the floating starts again after a feed. The peas didn't help here but feeding bloodworms does help a bit. At least the floating is not as bad after eating bloodworms. At the moment I hope waterchanges and feeding less will solve my orandas problem in time.
  11. Your lionheadbaby looks like a duplicate of mine
  12. I will. I've decided to really go for growth now in my fish so I change 30% water every week and feed them 2 times a day life foods and frozen foods with fresh vegies. No more flakes and pellets for my oranda floats after eating them. :crp I hope this will help him and all the fish will grow like crazy on my new regime I guess.
  13. I looked on the internet and found it's a veiltail His tail and fins are so long that I've decided to call him Dancer for he dances through the water with his long fins and tail.
  14. Yes that's correct and in this case the scales are so big and shiny that they are even nicer than in a mirrorcarp. The rest of his body is like normal leather without any scale
  15. Love it too. He was the only one in the shop with these fins and I really liked the orange body with the black tail and fins. Hope he stays like this
