How many Goldfish


  1. I just realized after taking some pictures that my Pinto has gone through quite the little change in this month! I am excited to see what his final coloring will be. This was him earlier in July: And this is him today! (Please excuse the poop, it was pea day!) "Mom! Stop it! You're embarrassing me!!" Okay, okay... but seriously... he even has a patch of facial hair!
  2. Some better images of my Ryukin, Custard. <3 Funny name, yes. xD My friend was throwing names at me, all pastries, jokingly. One was filled with custard and it stuck. It's so cute. And he is so sweet and mild it suits.
  3. This guy had me and the pet store owner kind of stumped. I called him over to ask his opinion on if he was a fantail or a ryukin. Ten minutes later and all we could do was shrug. But ten minutes of watching him and I just had to get him, as I desperately avoided looking at the pearlscales in the tank above him, lmao.
  4. I am hoping this is the right topic... So I have had my little Ryukin Beau for three months now, he is the four goldfish I ever bought. I've noticed marked growth in the other three I got just before him, but none in him. It's not failure to thrice, because he's doing really well! He eats, he is nice and fat, very active, no issues at all. I note his fins are at least the length of his body and I heard that could be a sign of a stunted fish. could he be stunted from being at the pet store like he was? I know he has had the room to grow and flourish since I got him, as all the others are doing. Is it possible he is a just slower, or do I have myself an itty bitty ryukin? He's about an inch long in body. I won't complain either way, as long as he's a happy little dude I am perfectly happy, too. xD
  5. some pics i took last night thanks for looking
  6. I did some hardcore tank cleaning today. So While I was at it I put the new guys in the smaller one for some good photos. they have all survived QT long enough to get names! c: First off is Gaston. He is the one I suspect is not a fantail, but actually a Ryukin. Named Gaston from Beauty and the Beast because he was a little bully in the tank at the store. I got him because he looked SO healthy, super active, and I crossed my fingers that he would be less aggressive at home in a bigger tank with fewer fish. I was right! He is lovely now. It's kind of funny, because when I very first started getting goldfish all I wanted was a calico Ryukin. And now I may have inadvertently gotten one. And here is Antoine. The unique one of the group. He was impossible not to come home with, because he is just so striking, really. He is a lovely fish. Though, ah, I am kind of concerned. Because he is VERY long bodied I notice? And it occurred to me that not a week before I got him they had Wakins in that tank. Though he was labeled fantail, I'm worried now. Some second opinions on that will be appreciated. Compared to the other goldies he is VERY long bodied. And he is, length wise, Gastons size... And finally, Jaques (Pronounced like Jaques Cousteau) I wasn't going to get more than two at first, though i had room for four. But he kept staring at me with his amazingly derpy face, and his mustache. Which I know may go away later on, but it makes him look so snooty right now. In a silly way. As you can tell, around where I live you cannot find big fish. Fifi was the biggest I have come across.
  7. we had earth tremors here, many of them, so i decided to shift all the new guys in qt to a safer tub with a cork base until the tremors were over. took the opportunity for a photoshoot (as you would during these horrid times! ) she's actually my tallest in height: (ryukin ppl get what i am saying ) this one has that beautiful blue shining through as calico's should here is my confirmed male.. he had breeding stars when i got him. i've not checked genders for the others, just the big one looks like a girl.. and the new chu joined their qt and will remain with them until they enter the main tank: (he's such a sweetie ) they're all doing really really well :heart thanks for looking
  8. I got a short video of my new tri-color Ryukin Yamato:
  9. He's finally beginning to adjust to his new home. He's got the best mustache in the world ^o^ Here's Yamato:
  10. this tank once again is complete with 8 giants. we're happy.. look how happy we are : no more pics for a while.. *promise* we shot the totts last week
  11. here they are guys.. the Ranchu are out of QT and have joined the Ryukin (and Elizabeth Taylor of course (purposes mentioned for fang ) ) both measure 7", both weigh between 160-170 grams each and both are male red Ranchu redcap Ranchu i only have eyes for chu group chu's: and one with the imposter fish that made 200 photos hit the trashcan... and lastly, a video available in 720p HD: please enjoy! we sure as h3ll did! ( )
  12. I had to take my two new fish out of quantine early, but they are looking really good. So, I thought I would post a few pictures . I have a video I will post too in the video section. They are all little, but I prefer to get fish that way and be able to watch them grow. I have two orandas, 1 ryukin, 1 veiltail, and 1 pearlscale in my 56g. I know that I will probably have to buy another tank and split them up as they grow. These were taken a couple days before I added the other two.
  13. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3qtgJO3d44&feature=youtu.be

    frantic ryukin?

    Hi everyone! I've been browsing this forum for help with my relatively new goldfish, and it's been massively helpful thus far. But I haven't been able to find any answers about my fish's current behavior. Normally I have a 10 gallon tank for him that's in great condition and tests normally for ammonia, nitrites/nitrates, pH levels, etc. The tank's been fully cycled and the fish have been there for about 4 months. However, I had to come home for Christmas break for 3 weeks and couldn't find anyone to care for my fish. I'd had a calico fantail and this ryukin, Ezreal. I picked up a little travel tank (about 3 gallons?) since I couldn't bring their whole tank home with me. The calico fantail died shortly after we got home (a 7-hour drive from my apartment). I think he got too stressed out from the drive (Who wouldn't?) On the drive home too, my filter broke, but I didn't realize it until after I'd set up Ezreal in the mini-tank on my desk. He'd swam into it and it cut up his face. He's been ok since and seems fully healed, but I had to toss the filter since it's obviously broken. Ezreal has always been very active and social, but lately he's been acting more frantic than just active. He's still always looking for food and always swims to the top of the tank when I'm near, as if expecting me to feed him just because he's there (since normally the main times I'm near the tank in my apartment, it's to feed them). I don't know if it's just stress from the trip + stress of being in a smaller tank temporarily + the tank being in a new location in general. Or maybe it's more serious? Needless to say, I'm a bit worried. (He has not been flashing, swimming upside down, staying in one place for a long period of time unless he's "sleeping" at night, or having issues with floating.) Sorry for the essay xD figured more info the better.
  15. Hi, My 2 Ryukins. Appx 3 inches long. Have had them for a year in a 20 gallon long. Pictures were taken a few months ago. Now have them in a 29 gallon tank. Thank you for looking.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. new large ryukin. currently under quaratine. pardon the poor pic quality.
  19. 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
  20. couple of vids of all the fish they're not the best quality, taken from my iPhone.. but HD still available at 720 tiny totts: ryukins: enjoy
  21. My current line up for the Ryukin tank. Apollo was biting at the time, so he's spending some time in with the tiny totts. Rocky was biting over there, so he's spending some time getting pushed around by the big guys in here Leonidis, losing his black, but still as handsome as ever Electra.. picture perfect as always Hercules the beautiful Deianeria Zeus, I've finally picked a name for him Agapi.. she's such a spunky gal and pain in the , Ms Elizabeth Taylor.. although, she's been a perfect lil princess for a little while.. so hopefully she will remain that way and i can keep her the guys just clowning around :D oh rocky.. see what it's like to be pushed around? rocky says LOL thanks for watching
  22. Hey everyone, my Ryukin, Picasso, has been floating some after meals and so I have been soaking his food and trying to fix it. Right now we just have flakes ( I didn't know better) but this next week we are ordering some Hykari (sp) sinking pellets and I will soak them. The problem also happens when we do water changes and I was hoping someone could explain why and how I can help prevent it. I have read some about swim bladder. Is this what he has? We saw he had some bubbly poo a few nights ago. I know they can get constipated so every few days I've been feeding them peas. I just wanted to pick ya'lls brains. I had searched for posts on here and found ones that talked about soaking the food, but couldn't find one that explained the water change floating. Thanks for your help!
