Babies

Uru died and I put down Gladiolus... And so I was looking for two new babies to try my project with along with Rangli and Kosmos. I've never seen a Sarassa Comet at my Walmart and this one stood out amongst all the regular goldfish. Sasha I named her. The blue base calico reminded me of my Shembje. I HAD to get him. I used to call Shembje my booshka... So his name is Booshka.

I DID NOT WANT the ugly common... But he was the LAST one left... He was with all the Koi... And he seemed to beg to come along... And I caved. His name is simply... COMMON.

I really like them all, Booshka is my favourite  though and Common reminds me of my little commons, they are half way orange now

Booshka is my favorite too. I love blue and blue based fish. They all look slightly twitchy. Maybe flukes. But they look pretty healthy overall. I was careful this time. No mouth or spine issues.

I am trying to get rid of the Bettas. I only have 2 of the 3 left. I can't manage a lot of tanks. I try but I can't. I hate tanks. I can only manage one. I make too many errors when there are too many. It's beyond me. I will end up killing them all, which defeats the purpose.

That one would be cool to breed :thumbs:

Koko I suck at breeding. I rarely get spawns and I don't keep plants in my ponds and so the fish always eat everything. I SWEAR I am going to raise some babies next year. I MUST. Mandy makes me jealous.

Do it! Its very fun to watch the fry grow - particularly in a pond setting!

You could use artificial spawning mops - and make them yourself?

Yes I tried that last summer. I guess I would need to take the fish out of the pond and put them in a tub with the mops. But I tried that and they just didn't seem interested in spawning anymore. The spawning mops WOULD NOT SINK in the pond even soaking wet so idk what was going on.

I did get a few eggs from the pond, but none were fertilized and all went fungus. The fish ate everything else. Even though I had 6 boys chasing one girl, the boys mostly fired blanks I suppose lol. I always have had TONS of boys and not many girls.

I have 4 yearling Ryukins. All from the same spawn, siblings. There are 2 girls and 2 boys. Both the boys are pretty nice and one even won at the show. The girls are fairly crap as far as quality goes. One is decent, the other is junk. And I also have two feeder Comets. 1 girl and 1 boy.

So my ratios are actually pretty good for once. If all goes well, I can get a spawn this spring/summer. If the eggs are laid by the Comet girl, I don't want them. I don't want a batch of guaranteed regular goldfish. If the eggs are laid by a Ryukin, I will get them. There is a Comet boy but there are two Ryukin boys, so hopefully I would get some Ryukins.

Sometimes the best of us dont have good luck! In saying that, hopefully this year you're a bit more successful!

(As for the mops, maybe increase the size of the weight used?)

MJ when I lived in CA I couldn't get my goldfish to breed for the life of me. But for some reason living up here in OR I get them doing it all spring and summer. 

I hope they will do something for you :)
