How many Goldfish

  1. If this is the wrong place for this topic feel free to bump. I love the round look of fancy goldfish and am getting ready to buy my first imported, high quality pets. I was considering the butterfly tail telescope but want a fish who can grow bigger and be more hardy. My next choice is the ryukin. I have always been drawn to them. I understand ryukins are especially prone to buoyancy problems. Is this inevitable with a ryukins as they age or can it be prevented with excellent care and water quality? I will have 3 in a 75 gallon tank with 2 dojo loaches, 1 peppered loach, and a bristlenose plec. My filters will be 2 SunSun 304B and my weekly water change will be 75% or more. I'm only going to feed soft foods like Repashy gel food and frozen foods. I'll feed 2-3xs a day, only what the fish will eat in 1 min or so. I heard it is good to have a fasting day once a week so the fish can completely clean themselves out, so I will probably do that. If I am going to spend the kind of money quality fish are worth I want some that have the potential to be long lived. Does anyone have a ryukin who made it to the 10-15 year mark and beyond? Is there such thing as a show quality fantail that maybe isn't quite as compressed as the ryukin? I would even consider something quality and single tail like Bristol shubunkins, but I really do like the looks of the ryukins better. I just want to have them for a long time. I'm looking for hardiness in show quality fish. An impossible dream? I think Dandy Orandas has an auction starting tonight. I won't be ready to buy for another week or two, but can't wait to see what he has to offer.
