For those who are curious what is hanging on the right. It's the Marimo Moss ball.

The 2 notti fellow have been picking on one of it breaking it open and I have to bag them up so that the moss can heal back into a ball.

Not leaving them on the bottom as the netting will catch a lot of rubbish.

Few weeks ago, the new Ryukin suddently did not make it again. It just acted weirdly one night after dinner and was gone the next day. It was all fine before the meal and i feed them freeze dried blood worms.

Not sure if it was caused by the fine powdery bits of the blood worms that I emptied together into the tank when it finishes.

Anyway I have switched to frozen blood worms as a treat and the usual goldfish pellets that I have been feeding them daily as the primary food and....

I got a new one shortly after. A much bigger size one this time. The whitish one is going strong all these while and I shall name it White knight. Ermmm I have not sex them yet so just let it be for now. The bigger one shall be named Dreamy. I like its tail and with the blurry tail image in the photos gives it a dreamy effect.

And here is the new Ryukin in the house...

My 2nd Ryukin just don't last too long. No idea why. All other tank mates are doing great except for the 2nd one.

This will be the 4th time I am putting in a replacement. :(

This time round will choose a plain colored one and see if it makes a difference.

Enjoy.

They are fantastic, Jeff!

Any idea what's causing the ryukins to die off like that?

Not very sure but I suspect is eat too much. The white one is slower and don't get to eat as much so that might be why it is longer living.

:unsure:

beautiful pictures! :)

Sorry about your ryukins :( You could always post in the diagnosis section regarding your ryukins if you ever wanted some help problem solving the issue, sometimes a second (or third) set of eyes can help to sort things out.

Having some BBA problem and tried to introduce SAE but noticed them disturbing the 3 goldies and removed the SAE after just a few hours. :(

The slime coat is just too tasty for the SAE to resist.
