It's been 6 months since I got these fish. I euthanized the blue ridge fish with the most extreme body after it developed swim bladder problems and flipped. The calico is still the runt with a small head, but they are all developing well and getting some size on. Here are some initial photos of the fish, and them yesterday. I should get their weights in as well. Comments and critiques welcome. All the fish aside from the red and white hamanishiki had fin flaws when I purchased them and are still present. Most improved! Red and white fish. 6 months ago. Yesterday. Tricolor fish. 6 months ago. Yesterday. Runty Calico. 6 months ago. Yesterday. Blue Calico. 6 months ago. Yesterday. And here is a new fish. This fish has really nice fins and shape, I'm hoping to prevent the same swim bladder issues present in the other very round fish. Everyone all together.
Hi folks, I hope you're all doing well. I have been really busy with work and school and am rarely here these days. I wanted to provide an update on my baby crown pearlscales. Originally I posted 3 - a few days later I went back and grabbed two more. Unfortunately, my favorite pearlscale, who had the most round extreme body shape, developed swim bladder problems and flipped as he continued to grow, and I euthanized him about a week ago when he began to develop sores from floating and wasn't getting food. He was so cute and seeing the baby photos of him made me a little sad, but the good news is, the other four are doing beautifully and growing very well. I recently purchased a 125g tank and my 7 ranchu went into that, with the 4 pearlscales inheriting the 75g. I baffled the outflow of the one large HOB filter so that they aren't pushed around, and redid the tank for them. I sold the last of my baby ranchu from this summers breeding and am enjoying watching the pearlscales continue to grow. Here is the initial thread from when they were babies : http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/118466-baby-hamanishiki-crown-pearlscales/ And here they are today in their new tank!
