How many Goldfish

  1. Let me pick your brains for a minute. I have a medium sized Panda Oranda, that is honestly more blue/purple and white, than black and white. He also has a patch of yellow/gold under the darker colors on one side. The other day, I had him out of the tank and into a 5 gallon bucket while performing a major water change. He was in the bucket for MAYBE an hour while I changed 90% of the water in my 46 bow-front. After letting the filter cycle the new water for about a half hour, I placed the Panda back into the 46 and was shocked to see that most of his color had completely bleeched out! The whites were obviously still white, but the blue/purple had turned to a light greenish color and the gold was completely gone! I was initially very upset with this, but after about 10 minutes, all of his color returned as if nothing had happened! My wife thinks I dreamed all of this up, but I am certain that the color on this fish faded out and then came back. Is it possible that the stress from being in the bucket caused this? Or perhaps a lack of light in the bucket? I have never heard of this happening and can't seem to find anything on the internet about it. Again, there is nothing wrong with the fish, I am just more curious than anything. Also, 3 other Orandas of varying colors (Med. Calico, Sm. Redcap, Sm. Blue) had no signs of color change. I had 2 five gallon buckets with 2 Orandas in each. The buckets were orange, although that probably doesn't matter. HA! Thanks for reading!

  4. I've been wanting to start keeping fancy goldfish for a while now and I've been a lurker on this site for a bit. That said, I've been trying to figure out what exactly I wanted to do and I thought maybe I could get some insight from some of the experts here. I'm really interested in setting it up right the first time, as I really don't like the thought of tormenting some poor fish by making silly choices. Here's what I've been thinking about: Tank: 36 gallon (I'm leaning towards a bare bottom tank) Fish: 1 Black Moor and 1 Oranda Decorations: a few plastic plants and probably some smooth river rocks I'm not sure about filtration though. I like the idea of using two filters in order to accomplish the job, but I'm stil confused about which models or types are good for a novice like myself. Also not sure about what type of bubbler to use. Am I missing anything else? What do you guys think? Thank you for your time and thanks to everyone who contributes to this site. So much great info and awesome fishies!!
  5. went to suppliers today i decided to take more video from one section of his small shop. he fills it well remember, this is the fish i wanted, and came home with i have decided to call her Anastasia enjoy
  6. i visited my supplier today. he has received some new fish.. unfortunately no telescopes.. which is what i had in mind to come home with.. but, i secured a ryukin that will be released from QT next week.. it's at 1:23 mainly orange on the head (calico) with black striped tail.,. huge
  7. Got two Ryukin, and a baby Butterfly out of QT just today. This is Loops. He's just tiny, maybe 2 inches. In the 2nd pic there is one of the red and white Ryukins, Scribbles. W/ more of him below. The other Ryukin, Bozie in the bottom right corner. He wasn't cooperating for pics. Bourkie And The Doctor way in the background. He's getting tubby. I'll try to get a better pick of Bozie. Scribbles definitely has a more pronounced hump. Both are about the same size, guessing around 4 inches.
  8. I upgraded my lighting to a dual T5 HO fixture and wow, what a difference. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've even seen my fish! I definitely like the TMS much more now. So, here are some pics of the goldies and tank with the new lighting
  9. I've been trying to get some acceptable pics for my crew, and they finally cooperated. This is the group in the 100g. I'll update the 55g in a couple of days. Without further ado, here they are, in alphabetical order XD Byakuya After a very very rough beginning, Byakuya has recovered well from her dropsy after shipping. I hope she will stay healthy for years to come. Gin Gin came from Petsmart, and was discovered to have a very mushy belly when I took her out of the bag. She too has fought the infection, and here she is Hanataro Hanataro is the surprise baby from DO. He's such a spunky little guy. He definitely livens up the tank Ichigo Ichigo's my first from Petsmart. Also another bundle of energy, she's demonstrated a nice growth. Jyushiro My calico oranda baby!!! Kisuke Blue oranda from Petsmart. He has the best facial expressions. Nelliel She's the panda I've always wanted to complete my tank. Nelliel does not disappoint. The shipping from DO this time was as smooth as can be. Nelliel & Hanataro didn't even stress. Renji I had to bring him home when I saw him. Toshiro Queen of the tank! :wub: Group Shots We Be Butterflies I <3 U Thank you so much for looking. I realize there were a lot of pics (Notice Toshiro in every single group shot. She's well loved lol)
