If you get a fish from Ken, they usually arrive in great shape. I would have quarantine tank set up of ten gallons with a cycled filter. Put the new baby in there for two weeks-one month. Ken's fish are usually super healthy but regardles you always want to quarantine. After you introduce to your fish observe the behaviors for a while. Sometimes male fish will chase females. Finally, since you are getting a celestial, makes sure it gets enough food since you have two faster fish ryukin and ranchu right???

...well, i was planning on putting her in a ten gallon all by herself because i don't think she'd do well with my other fish (two ranchus).

but, the auction ended and i have no idea whether or not i won her

:blink:

unfortunatly, i was unable to check up on it this afternoon....

and i've no 'confirmation' email

but i don't have a 'someone has outbid you' email either.

gahhhh.

i'm so confused.

:unsure:

If you won the fish, Ken will be giving you a call probably tomorrow or the day after to arrange payment and shipping. He doesn't send a confirmation.

I think that is a great idea that you will be keeping the celestial by himself. You can also call Ken to confirm, sometimes it takes a couple of days for him to call back. He also has video business that keeps him just as busy as the goldfish. Please let us know how things are going

Nope, the fish just shows up when he says. Nerve wracking isn't it?

Why yes, it certainly is :D

....i think the only thing keeping me from totally freaking out is hearing from all the people who've ordered fish from him in the past.

thanks a bunch :heart
