Well, well, well.... Look what I found at one of my local fish spots. This was a cool find! Only 2 inches, but showing some potential. I was told that they're a challenge to keep, so we will see how true that is. If everything goes well, they'll look great in my pond. Any advice is welcome.

too adorable. i had the opportunity to buy young tosakin, but my filters are adjusted to suit stronger swimming fish and they would have suffered, so i chose against them. but they are indeed a very beautiful fish with the most gorgeous tails :wub: i couldn't keep my eyes off a calico one that my supplier was offering me.

 

congratulations on a great find :)

Sorry for the link. Did not realize. Thank you! As soon as they get big enough, they'll go in the pond where the water will be a lot calmer.

The current looks a little strong! If you can baffle it they'd really appreciate it I'm sure. Tosakin need still and shallow water to develop a proper tail form and to prevent health issues because they are not strong swimmers. They look incredible!

Thanks for the advice. I kind of thought the same thing, so I turned off the bigger filter and ran the smaller one. After quarantine they will be placed in my shallow pond (10-12 inches deep) where the water is alot calmer. Thank you once again.
