New Fish and Old Fish Update

Well, I thought it was a good time for an update on my goldfish. Rai and I have a new acquisition who is in quarantine at the moment. His name is Asher, we found him in a Petsmart we don't usually go to. He is a chocolatey metallic Ryukin. We couldn't resist him. I will be getting another tank when I go back home to New York in the beginning of June. A friend has a tank to give us! So, I'll split my guys up then. I have 7 goldies in all now. Piggy was my first one, she's a calico fantail. Next is Fozzy, he's an orange oranda. Then Cerebus, a calico ryukin with a extra tail lobe. Then I found Victor who was a black oranda that has become more bronzey in color. The Rai and I went on a lfs expedition and we found Victoria, a large blue oranda. We both wanted her ,but I had room and she didn't, so..... We kind of share her. :) I then found Princess Peach who was a tiny white oranda that was in poor shape. She had a rough shipping experience. She was missing scales and rather thin. She just finished quarantine and went into the big tank. She has done wonderfully in quarantine and has grown and popped a wen to boot. She is very energetic and friendly. Asher is our last one. He is doing well now in quarantine and has learned that there is more than just floating food. He has been eating his metro meds and is doing well. He will let me hand feed him now. :)

This is little Cerebus. She's not as little as she used to be! She has three lobes to her tail. It's hard to capture in pictures though. Rai tried. :)

Thanks!! Rai's got her grandmother's photography gene. :)

Wow they all look great. Love those fins on the new one.

Thank you! We just couldn't pass him up. Such a beauty.

Thanks guys, Rai took most of the pictures, my camera wasn't co-operating for some reason. She is better at photographing the fish(steadier hands). She definately has my parents photography genes! We think Asher is a ryukin. we just couldn't pass him up. I am really enjoying my goldies. I've always had tropicals, so this is all new to me. Rai and I hope to try our hands at breeding our goldies for fun, hopefully some day!

Asher has quite the dorsal fin! Your fish are lovely and it's nice that Rai and you share a hobby.

Thanks for showing us your fish.
