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!
