SO... 75 new goldies listed on goldfish connection!

I know theres no way I can afford one but still I tear my hair out waiting for he auction to start- the goldfish are so beautiful!

When I get my 100 gallon sometime in the next week im going to be tempted to quickly fill it up with some new goldies from the goldfish connection, but I would need to sell my furniture. I think its worth it- who needs a bed? Thats what carpet is for! Right?

I was very impressed with some of the goldfish at this store in San Diego- its listed here on kokos as a good one to go to. Ive been vacationing in San Diego so I ran over there to check it out. They have some VERY nice fish. There is a calico oranda there that is SO cute. There was also a big red cap oranda there but he wasnt looking good. He was lying the bottom staring at me. I wished I could have bought him and nursed him back to health. I was just too far from home and would have to put him in a rubbermaid and buy a new filter and all. There was nothing I really could have done. Poor Little guy. If anyone lives in san diego and wants an oranda go to goldfish world. Hes the red cap with the other colors on his body. It would give me peace of mind if you took him!

I know im off the subject now, but theres a GREAT store called Aquarium Odyssey in palm springs area. Its my favorite. The people there are so great and so knowledgable. Give it a look see if you live there.

Anyway when the auction opens dont be afraid to say which goldies you like.

Thanks Guys!

I don't know if i'm the only one who noticed but some of those photos have been altered. The orange has been bulstered up in photoshop program. These two fish ###### well.

It could have been the lighting. The fish in my 55 are all white except for Rowan's wen, which is red, and depending on the lighting sometimes her wen is a super red in pictures. It gets so bright like in those pics that I can't even look at her head, it's so bright.

I don't agree that they're photoshopped, but it's possible the lighting played a part. :D

My :twocents

That said, I'm very glad I wasn't awake when the auction opened! If I was, chances are I wouldn't have any money to pay my car insurance lol

OMG fantastic fish! I don't even try to look at the fish, because I know I can't buy them (living in Belgium..., you know, that huge ocean in between...) :(

I know what you mean. Such gorgeous fish and they are so out of reach :( I still look at them, because they are so beautiful. Maybe one day (I now I'm dreaming) :druel

What's up with the auction? There are hardly any bids. I'm kinda surprised. Of course, this is....what?, like the fifth one? I guess people are kinda bought out. And that chocolate pom pom, Lot 32, looks just like my teeny tiny Toby..... in about 4 years! lol!
