Lionchus (no good tail tucks, but no big wens either :hmm )

  • 55 grams and 2-7/8 inches (Eggbert is a very fat-bodied fish)
  • 45 grams and 3-1/4 inches (Poof)
  • 70 grams and 3-3/8 inches (Poopsie)

Ryukin

  • 70 grams and 3-1/4 inches (Goldeen)

Oranda

  • 80 grams and 3-1/2 inches (Gwen)

Tele

  • 35 grams and 2-3/4 inches (Black Eye)

no-grow fantail (I think)

  • 25 grams and 2-1/2 inches (Oreo)

I weighed but didn't measure the last two, so I will add them later.

Use a kitchen food scale. Put a bowl of tank water on it, tare or "zero" it if it has that capability. If not, just record how much the container + water weigh and then subtract that from container + water + fish weight.

It's quite interesting. It really made me realize what shrimpy fish I have compared to everyone else? :rofl

I finally weighed my fish! Unfortunately I couldn't find the tape measure or ruler so I don't have their measurements.

Google - 64 grams

Cali - 82 grams

Tiger - 71 grams

Honey - 38 grams

Bamboo - 20grams

Abraham - 80 grams

I'd estimate my tub to be about 15cm long and Tiger pretty much went end to end in it though (He is a comet)

Cleo- 46 Grams- 2.5 inches

Cal- 44 Grams- 2.5 inches

Pumpkin- 12 grams- 1.25 inches

Ginger- 10 grams- 1.25 inches

The measurements are just me eyeballing it, but it seems about right. Just picked up the kitchen scale last week, I was so excited to use it.

The scale I ordered just came in the mail today.

So here are the numbers of my fish:

1) Calico Ryukin: 5cm, 6g

2) Red and white ryukin: 4cm, 4g

3) Red and white Oranda: 6cm, 26g

4) Red oranda: 5.5cm, 26g

My fishies still need a lot growing up to do. Hope this is helpful to you or anybody.

(my measurement for length is head to butt)

As of this morning

Cleo 49 grams

Cal 54 grams

Pumpkin 17 grams

Their lengths are all about the same, but since the Repashy SG they're way fatter. :)

I made a brave attempt at trying this today :goldfish:

I started with Lisa (fantail) who came in at 365 grams, but that's as far as we got cause she made a MESS with one flick of her massive fins; back to the tank she went lol

The mess was big enough that I had to forego weighing anyone else LOL
