GoldPigs

I go to livefish.com.au to buy my plants. They're quite reasonably priced, and you get some generous amounts :) I also get all of my food from this store: http://www.brookfieldproduce.com.au/fish since it's online as well, and quite cheap in comparison with other stores. I used to buy from petbarn, but they're prices are absolutely ridiculous

City farmers in Chermside sells some great goldfish, but I don't think they ship

Sorry for going a little off topic, but I thought I'd add some good Aussie sites for food/plants as well!

Unfortunately I'm living in the other end of the country otherwise I'll give you guys some young ranchus. Anyway as a start if anyone living in the West would like some 2-3 cm quality home bred Thai ranchu, please PM me. I can arrange them to be picked up at a Shopping center nearby (postcode 6148/6155).

Any takers?

Living in Perth is better..lol. Thru' those imports I got in 2011, I've successfully built my ranchu army, (next project will be tvrs and orandas) now I'm planning to do some charity by giving away my youngsters to hobbyist in Perth. I'm not set up to do shipping yet but if you ever come to Perth do look me up and don't forget to bring your packaging gears too. :)

If I ever move to Perth I'll definitely look you up, the Ranchu's in your sig are gorgeous. Or if you ever move to Sydney make sure you advertise it on here ;)

Sure Andrea. I think I'll post a separate thread later to offer my freebies but I'm also afraid to be swarmed like those parties advertised in Facebook. That's why coming to my premises is out.

She does not advertise them nearly as much as her bettas, which is what she initially specialised in. But here's some videos of hers

Here are her pricings for these fish:

Beautiful Chinese Ryukin Goldfish.

Large Broadtail Ryukin = $150ea

Small Ryukin = $24.95ea

Large Calico Ranchu = $165

These ranchu were sold for $185 each

Aand, the most expensive I've seen of hers:

Prices for these ones:

$375 for the red and white orandas

$295 for the black oranda

I personally would never buy these fish for that amount, because I don't think the price matches the quality. I got my red caps for $50 each, and my Ryukin for $45, which is standard pricing for the majority of chain pet stores that sell goldfish. However, that being said, I would buy her ranchu

She doesn't advertise all of her goldfish, but when I went in store to view them, she only had around 30 goldfish total. She has a huge amount of bettas though in her betta section. The store is heated, so the bettas are all in good conditions, with water changes weekly :)

I hate to mention this but your post brought back some painful memories. In Nov 2011 we brought in a large shipment of Thai high end ranchus (svr) orandas and young tvrs ( 24 x) thru' her. She lost 21 of our tvrs at her premises due to some "mysterious" parasitic infestations.(won't even show us all the pics of the dead ones) Luckily our svr and oranda got to Perth safely. Alex should remember this. Anyway I agreed her gold fish pricing are a huge rip off. They don't look that great either.

Note: Those are definitely not TVRs and there is no such thing as a black TVR.

Funny thing, I also heard a very similar story last week from another person. Lionchu, TVR meant that the camera filmed the fish from the top...hihi

Top view ranchu originated from Japan and have a more square head when viewed from above and not as much of a tail tuck as the side view varient, top views are bred to be in ponds and viewed from above, hence top view ranchu

Side view ranchu have a more rounded head and are bred to be viewed side on, so in a tank :)

Hey kangakoi, very long time no see. How come you only appear when there are freebies? :rofl

@ Jellyballoo, Actually you got half the facts correct but square head not necessary a top view as a buffalo ranchu also has a square head. Most early pictures of Japanese ranchu has more of a rounded head. It's not just judging by their heads alone, there are more to it. Also there are current standards for each criteria.To tell a SVR not TVR easy but to tell a TVR not SVR difficult . There are some would tell you all are same ranchu. Anyway imo if you are not keeping them for competitive purposes none of the above are important. :)

Lionchu,

This not just any freebies, this is good freebies, so thank you Sir...hihi. I now hated you(not....hahahaha) because of your Opinion "Anyway imo if you are not keeping them for competitive purposes none of the above are important." So what were we been doing all these years and went throught all the pains? I know now the story behind your and others in respect of the unfortunate adventure...hahahaha. Have you got and TVR in your collection at the present time? if not, would you like tyo hear my story..hihihi

Regards

Kanga

When do you want those babies and how many? Please be realistic and don't take more than your tank capacity, you have to allow room for growth. Too dense stocking level will always spell trouble either it's water quality, disease or poor growth. Rough guide for now is 1 fish needs 10L water.

Just PM me thru' PCS.

Yeah I got tvrs and also have been trying to collect a few seeds for future breeding. What's your story? Just use the edit button, RH corner within a stipulated time. (I don't know how long).

Haha, that's a lot to ask regarding color. They are just CBRs remember, about 3cm in length(and FOC too). I've just dropped 25pcs at Aquotix yesterday. If you buy from then it'll cost you $12.95 per piece.

Perth is not a big place as far as aquaculture is concerned so every one tends to know each other. "Good Thing" or not we shall see. (I've heard those b4)

That is generous Lionchu, I remember that d_golem got all excited when he got his halfcrossed TV Lionchu from Vebas years ago. I too was there stood at the very spot that he took the picture and no body in the store know what is a TVR is. This included the owner Pacco. Cichlid people are more power than we are and not into the gental art of Taichi Chuan ie goldfish keeping and cichlids eat each others...hihi... so much for PCS forum change.....thank you Lionchu...good to be back after all these years.

I suggest you start looking for a FGT for your new tvrs from Darian. You'll need at least a 1x1m x 0.3m to cater for 4-6 Nisai, Darian got some in black color ~$250 ea. If you are planning not to use any filters and rely only on w/cs then you've to get two large airstones plus air lines and an pump with at least 2 outlets. Choose the strongest one (with 2 outlets min) that your wallet can handle.

Thank you Lionchu, i will do that. Let see first the fish, then we'll get excited. Mean while I will enjoy your fish. Did you get an Ai-goromo amongst your buffalo ranchu?

It's good to see some healthy discourse going on in here.

I gather that this forum does not has a PM function right? and the editing function is limited hence you have to be "nice" all the time, plus you must think, draft what you wish to say on a piece of paper before final post to save hostility and banish at a later date, right?

There is a PM function; however, you don't have access to it until you reach 100 posts.

In regards to editing, there is a short window (I'm not sure how long time wise, 15-20 minutes perhaps) in which you can edit posts. Lastly, drafting is a good process, it allows you to cohesively present what you are trying to say. That said there's no need to draft on a piece of paper, just type up a response and read over it before hitting "post". ;)

I personally call the Edit botton as Redemption button. Being a typical male, the problem is sometime too much information supplied(this usually happens when alcohol involved) and later wish to exclude these infor out for the sake of humanity and the children "assets". I guessed that if I wish to anticipate in any cultures then I must learn to respects and learn to fit in.....hihi....
