What is your DREAM GOLDFISH?

Recommended Posts

Guest ttiwedas

I am still waiting to set up my new tank, and I've had a variety of fish in the past. I think my dream fish would be a lemon head oranda and maybe a panda telescope or panda oranda. I also have a fondness for calico fantails that have black eyes and pink gills. I always think they look like they have heavy makeup on.

a panda oranda that will keep its black coloring. hahahaha i know this is a joke in the FL panhandle. I'd have a better shot at finding jimmy hoffa.

Wait, can I change my mind? I had never heard of these before: http://www.raingarden.us/goldfish-shukin.htm

Check out 7895- what a beauty. Shukins are my dream breed! Long flowing tails on cutesy ranchu bodies. Does it get better than that?

Who am I kidding, I don't think I've ever met a goldfish I didn't love.

That's a great idea! Perhaps the fam and I could just live in our garage while we flood the house! We can peak in thru the windows and drop food down the chimneys! :krazy:

I found a dream goldfish at a show a few years ago. He's a comet shubie with a tripod tail and had lots of yellow--very unusual and neat looking! He only cost $10 but I had no room and was afraid he would just end up being ill. I was having trouble keeping my gf healthy at the time. :(

A tri colored Broadtail Moor. But I'll settle for just a velvety black Broadtail Moor. I will have one once I get my 90 Gallon!

My dream fish has got to be a Dragon Eye Oranda. I could really care less about coloring.

Those things are so darn cute!

Has anyone ever bought a fish off of auction on GF connection? Post picture please :) As for me i would like a gf that has tons of personality and would brush against my hand, like a cat does to your leg, when I stick my hand in the water.

Okay, the one at the 3:00 mark, the big white one. THAT ONE. I WANT THAT ONE MOMMY CAN I HAVE IT?

I totally LOVE that fish too! I thought Valcore was gonna turn into something like that... oh well.

I would love to have a fish this big.

That's so sweet. How long do you think it takes for them to get that size with the right conditions?

Too funny him bumping into the glass like a floating cow. I wonder how big the 'tank' is flowing in the background/underneath him. Probably huge.

My ideal fishy would be a panda with a really long tail, slight telescope eyes, and the size of my cat (23lbs) so like, 1' body and 2' with tail. No idea where it would live though.

Can I get a stroller for a big fish and take him around the block? :rofl

That's EXACTLY what happened to be! Mine is changing color though. :(

So I'm changing my dream fish to a shukin. ;)

Anyone know what a Tosakin GF looks like? Maybe the most STUNNING tail on ANY fish.

My dream is probably the Telescope-eyed variant of the Tosakin. Very rare however, and too bad even the normal ones are usually more than 100's of dollars. :krazy:

But for now, a little orange Telescope will do. :clapping:

I want a BIG crowned pearlie. I mean roos is on her way to being big but I rarely see any pearlies as big as ranchus or ryukins get. I want a giant one.
