New Babies from Cincy Goldfish

So this is a continuation of the breeder thread - I unboxed my new broadtail moors and black ranchu from Gary Hater, expecting two of the moors and one chu. He indicated he included some extras and actually doubled my order :rofl

The fish are gorgeous and acclimating in their bags right now. I'll shoot some better video when I get home this afternoon. The six (!!!) fish are each absolutely gorgeous specimens and I paid $30 plus shipping for show quality fish. It's a STEAL.

Please excuse, in no particular order, my sideways one handed filming, toddler daughter and her battle wounds from face planting in the yard yesterday, my unmade bed, a foot, and my closet which is holding all my unfolded laundry for attention this afternoon.

*ahem*

She's quite the little stinker. As soon as the box arrived she plopped down to see the babies :)

I'm just SO glad they came at 9:30 am because the shipping estimate said 3 pm and we would still be running around to swimming and piano if that was the case. I didn't want to miss the fish and risk them another day in the mail as the weather was turning colder but I also couldn't ditch the school activities today to wait on the mail. Of course the mail carrier didn't come until I was getting out of the shower - cue frantic scrambling for clothes :rofl

The ranchus are even better than I hoped for if that's possible - they have the best tail tuck and look great from the side already. The moors I was expecting perfection - those fins are already impressive and they're only an inch or so in standard length. Just incredible stock.

If anyone is interested I believe he is still selling them. He may have increased the prices slightly as they have gotten bigger but they're still such a deal.

Awesome fish - looked so healthy and chubby. As soon as I get my 55 gallon tank - at the VERY latest will be at Petcos next $1 per gallon sale - I wanted one more fishy - but only a Ryukin. Does he have Ryukins? His fish look great! Well... YOUR fish look great.

I haven't found a good ryukin stateside, they're all imported. I'm sure someone is breeding the but I haven't found them yet!

He has advertised ryukin fry on Goldfish Keepers, so have a lot of breeders, so ask him.  At the last show in Orlando, I would guess more than half of the entries were ryukins.

How did o not see this?l. I haven't seen hardly any when I've looked at my usual haunts. Apparently I'm just not looking at the right time :o

Cool. Is there a link I can follow? I don't need a show grade fish, just a cute and healthy one. When I get the space, I'll seek him out.

 

Just e-mail Gary (link in first post) and ask him if he will have any ryukins for sale.
