Tiny little guys

Recommended Posts

These pictures are already some weeks old, but these are the current fry.

 

I lost three over time, not sure what to, but the rest seems to be doing well. Some of them are so massive compared to the others, it's ridiculous!

As of now, the single fancy fry (lionhead-ish) is the smallest of the batch.
Most of them seem to be nymph-ish. Long-bodies single tails with a fatter belly than regular single tails. Not like Tomasabas, but I can clearly tell the difference between the ones that turned out like normal single tail fry and the ones that show fancy bellies.

My favorite fry (see picture descriptions) is the biggest of the batch. Somehow I feel like keeping the little fancy one as the second choice along with my fave, simply because I feel so protective of the tiny baby. 

But we will see.


Everyone else will be rehomed once spring comes around. Here in South Carolina a lot of people have ponds year round, and every spring there are many ads on craigslist by people looking for free goldfish for their ponds. Of course I'd make sure the new home would be legitimate and all.

In the "worst case" there also is Glencairn Gardens right here in town, which has a MASSIVE (thousands of gallons) goldfish pond full of gorgeous green water during at least half of the year. They also have a couple HUGE koi in there, one of them is about two feet long. No joke. 
If nothing else, I'd rehome the goldfish into that pond. Probably a better chance than they'd have if I'd give them to an LFS, where they'd probably end up as live food or in some overstocked, undersized, under-maintained newbie-tank.

So yeah, here are the kids!

 

Random pics. 
The one in the first pic to the left is my "favorite" out of the batch.

The one nearest to the bottom is my favorite. By now, he is SOOOO much bigger than in this photo and is larger than any of the others. S/he has developed a cute black spot on top of  his head and at the bas of the tail. His left eye is silver, the right eye is a big black button eye.

The single fancy baby. The back is very straight

With some of the big guys in the background. Considered the perspective makes the fish in the foreground bigger than they are, you can imagine just how teeny they were when I took the photos

Thanks, guys!

 

I also want to put out there that if anyone in the area-ish wants a free goldfish this spring, feel free to send me a message. I have to rehome at least ten of these guys, and I'm willing to take a drive if it ensures the fish going to a good home! :D

Although I know the chances are super slim; there aren't many Carolinas members on here.
