  1. I have had the most amazing goldfish-filled day I've been to Star Fisheries open day, which for those of you who haven't heard of it, is one of the main fancy goldfish breeders and suppliers in the UK. There's not many places in the UK where you can find such a wide variety of fancies, so this place is pretty special. So I walked upstairs and was greeted by a giant goldfish wall, and the biggest oranda tank I have ever seen. I WILL have this tank one day!!! To give you an idea of the size of the oranda tank, Baz has been volunteered as size comparison , he's 6'2'', so you get the idea... (Note the price on the tank, those oranda's ranged from £195 to £395!!) Here are some more pics of the orandas... Gorgeous big choc oranda but the pic is a bit rubbish... I loved these panda orandas, I nearly got one but they were a bit bigger than what I wanted, I think I'll always get babies from now on. I was trying to focus on looking for an oranda, but there were just so many adorable ranchus, I very nearly came home with one. Here's some pics of a few, sorry some of them are a bit blurry, I was very excited. Oh and just a general apology for the quality of the videos and if they make you feel a bit seasick, again, I was very excited. This little guy ... There were also some gorgeous top view ranchu, some bred by Andrew James, and the others imported and bred by a japanese breeder. There were lots of lovely veiltails... (Some stunning calico ryukins in this vid too) Some big beautiful ryukins... Bristol Shubunkins… Crowned pearlies... Big fat ping pong balls, stunning ryukins, the cutest white chu, and panda moors... Veiltails, panda orandas, panda moors, tricolour orandas, and beautiful chus... This little cutie reminded me of Jenna's Betty... Hope you all enjoyed the photos and videos, I definitely enjoyed myself! They have an open day every month until Christmas now, so I'm sure I'll find myself there again. Pics of my coming soon….
  2. Hi all, As some of you will know by now, I'm going away for the winter and previously had no idea what to do with my goldfish! I've just had some really good news, however; my Dad said that he'd keep up on tank maintenance for me. He even said he'd do it my way, previously he used to think tanks need cleaning out once a month at most, so for him to listen is a big change in luck. So I'm going to keep the fish in the main tank and let my Dad deal with them, the others will go in the pond. I'll increase the filtration on the pond, cover and heat it and that should help them through the winter. So now that I know my fish will be alright, I decided to get another fish. I spoke to Andy Green at Star Fisheries and told him that I wanted either a ranchu or ryukin, about 3inches, something to help finish of the tank for me to enjoy this summer. He said I could wait 3 weeks for some large calicos, or, he had a little tri colour that he's been rearing himself. He reckons that the colours are really strong and that there is a high chance the black should last. Apparently, the fish has excellent shape and a high hump for a young fish. I can't wait! I've asked for the fish to be delivered next Friday so that I have time to set the QT tub up and sort all the tanks out, my last fish from Star Fisheries is amazing, so I'm excited to see what this one will be like! Thanks for reading dnalex edit 4/27/12: There are now pics, beginning with post#19
