  1. Ok..so I walked by the tank today and Marshmallow, my Red Cap oranda was zipping about with a bunch of lovestruck boys in hot pursuit! Unfortunately, I'm babysitting a common and he was the only one keeping up, he was so fast and she was laying eggs but he was knocking everyone out of the way and getting all of them to himself. And then the eggs were being eaten as fast as they came out by the bystanders. So my bf was like, 'why don't you try the handspawning thing just to see?" Omg, so I did! Haha, what an experience---it actually wasn't that hard, guys. Honest! I got a small bowl of tank water. Gently got hold of the boys I want babies from ( Jelly the adorable black oranda and Fluff the very handsome Ryukin ) and I very carefully turned them upside down and pressed on them just like in the videos and milt came out. Swished both in the water and it was cloudy, placed them back in tank. Then got hold of Marshmallow and out poured a BUNCH of yellow eggs. I swished them in the water. Luckily I JUST set up a 10 gallon with some plants and a sand substrate. I seeded the filter from an established tank. The eggs are all stuck to the bowl and I'm afraid to crush them while removing them so I sunk the bowl in the aquarium and put the bubbler inside the bowl to keep the water moving around the eggs. The tank is being heated and is around 75. Does anyone have any tips!? I'll keep you guys updated for sure! Now..uh..I can go tell everyone in my family my goldfish are spawning and have a bunch of eggs but leave out the part about doing it by hand. No one understaaaaands...Lol!
