Rustic

November 14, January 11, March 2. I have very little fishy joy these days since almost everyone I've had for so long has died from the disaster, but I will still try and care for any I have left. This guy is doing well so far. Cool color change.

He's a Comet I had left from an experiment late last year. I couldn't bring myself to get rid of them and so they stayed. Him and another tiny Comet named Shrimp I still have left. I've also still got all 5 baby Ryukins in the front pond. So far, it is still healthy and unaffected.

He is losing that color quickly. This is Rustic today. Aaaannndd of course his name no longer fits. Dude is getting pretty big too. Perhaps he's my new Asteroid... I do miss her

Got him as a tiny baby from Walmart late last year so he isn't too old. Still quite the youngster. He and Shrimp in my other thread were gotten together along with several others. The others were not put into this pond and I lost everyone from the other pond to Costia.

So what are your rebuilding plans, if any?  Were you going to refresh your pond?  I’ve been thinking about you and your little guys :grouphug

No. I was biting down and eating the extra cost and hassle of the larger pond for the sake of the fish. Now that they're gone, so is the expense that truly was kicking my butt. So I decided I won't set up a new pond back there at all. I had gotten in way over my head anyway. That's why you have some of the fish lol. 

I will run my 55 with 2 or 3 fish and keep my front pond and that's it. That way I still get to have quite a few fish without the struggle of way too many. I'm content with that.

Oh good, I thought it had nuked your front pond too!  I think that sounds a lot more manageable.  But it’s amazing how the the fish bug bites us.  I don’t know if a single fish keeper who didn’t buy too many fish and keep too many tanks at one point or another.  I think I had three or four at one point a few years ago and that was way too many with he water changing system I had.

Me too. At one time I had 4 tanks and a pond. It was to much, I was getting to the point where it wasn't fun anymore.

Im happy with just one tank :)

Me too I am down to three now. One goldfish, one tropical and one saltwater and some days I feel like that is too many. But don't wont to give any up.  I dont really count the pond only up in the summer and I may not do anything with it this year but catch some minnows to keep the bugs out of it.

He can't be TOO old as I got him as a tiny WILD COLOR fish from Walmart last winter and he's already loaded with breeding stars and chasing the girls insane. Very annoying dude to have in my pond but there's nothing else I can do with him and he's a lovely regular goldfish and so he can stay.
