Not sure if you've seen this yet, but here's an old thread I dug up.. You can see some the ranchu I use to own. Also, a little information on fluke & anchor worm.. Damn, I miss my old ranchu :x If I still have them, they would of been monsters by now.. By the way, thoes duckweeds were a great addition!! Looking good..

I've reverted back to my old roots and found a couple Fantails and some ORandas.. working on picking up some "American Veiltail" youngsters... If I could get over this dang nasty head cold..I'd have picked them up this afternoon...
I have them just to enjoy watching.. if anything else comes of it.. its a bonus... I do look forward to growing out the Veiltails..if I can... gonna have to find homes for some as I know I won't have room for them all...

Check out this guy's setup, it's so awesome!! It's like a frag tank, but with all the sides painted blue.. With your knowledge in saltwater, I'm sure you can easily create something like this..

i could definitly pull that off. Wonder why the drip system? lazy man's water change? trying to keep water quality up by constantly adding good clean water?

Not even sure how the system works, so I have no clue. You would understand it better than me.. I may be thinking about doing a similar project like this in another month or two.. and I'm sure I will need a extra hand ;)

Ranchu's are cute little boogers.
My brother has a Ranchu and a Lionhead, with a couple little baby ranchus.
Not to mention the other goldfish around the house, all not mines lol.
