I haven't had a collection of goldfish in years, but it's time I fix that.

Got a qt tank setup and went out looking for goldfish around SoCal today. Figured I would share with people who understand the obsession. ????

Here's the haul:

Selecting and netting your own goldfish is seriously Zen like:

Thank you! I usually don't like teles much But this one really caught my attention.

They will soon be housed in a 150g tall, 4x2x2.5

I forgot to mention I'm on IG @Cohazard7 give me a follow and I'll follow back. ????????????

That is gonna be a pretty sweet setup. Looking forward to seeing the new fish all settled in and I hope QT goes smoothly. Good luck. :)

Thank you! One of the ranchu I picked out showed signs of its tail wanting to float to one side so hopefully the salt and prazi will help with that. I plan to QT for two months while I get the display tank just right.

I'd not put fancies in a 2.5 foot high tank, but I'm sure you know what you're doing and all will be well. Nice shop you have there which allows people to get out their own fish!

I'm no goldfish expert, I'm open to feedback, why wouldn't you? For me it's mainly aesthetics, but the air from the pump stays in contact with the water longer which should aid in oxygenating the water more.

It's getting better around SoCal for goldfish keepers. We have several great spots for quality goldfish! The spot I went to is a koi/water garden shop.

Pretty Goldfish and tank!!!

Thank you Dawn! Work in progress, haven't decided if I will go bare bottom or have gravel.

Wow! You've got some beautiful goldies :D

Thank you! I like the sound of 'Cali Tele', I may just name her Cali. ????

Hopefully I can get some pictures up tonight with my DSLR.

I like that tank very nice. Some ppl say fish like Ryukins should be in a tall tank rather than long. Dont know.

Everything with goldfish is a learning curve. :)

 

I cant wait to see it complete :)

You've got an eye for goldies :wub:

Very gorgeous fish! Does the red ranchu have matte scales?

I am very particular about what I like, I looove matter scales and button eyes!

Yes she is completely matte, with blushing clear gill plates. The red white is also mostly matte with a few nacreous scales in the mix.

I do plan to breed them some day, and the matte scales with button eyes will be the goal.

Well your doing just fine hun. Keep it up :thumbs:

 

Are you going to put live plants in there?

Yes, a few different species of anubias and J ferns.

I have an image in my head ow how the hardscape will look. The hard part is finding the perfect rocks and driftwood

Aww that is a great name!!

And thankyou! Blimp is very special to me. [emoji813]

He and my telescope ranchu spawned. She's kinda calico/kinda sakura. I found two eggs which became the matte white fish, and the weird sharkfin one. I think matte fish are hard to find because they're so often culled, not necessarily because they are hard to produce... i think :hmm

:tomuch:

I made a funny :))

Wow that pairing made the matte Ryukin? That's awesome!!

I know that getting the matte fish is just a matter of having the right genes in the brood stock, so I'm pretty much only going to select those types of fish.

I've got plans that involve single tails too.
