I new to this forum, but I'm a goldfish fan.

I've got a few little fantails and pearlscales at the moment.

I have two of those red and white orandas.. 2 huge comets, and 1 baby comet.

Comets get so fiesty around eating time.. they nibble on the orandas tailfins alot.

Goldfish are probably the most tame fish of all, that's the one thing I love about them... You walk up to them, and they all start bashing their heads on the front of the glass begging for food.

I keep just a few ryukins now.

Might get some others if I can move them to a double-decker 55 rack and have them drilled for overflow so I can more easily change the water more frequently.

I think that picture was taken in April couple week before i moved them outside for the first time. Learned a lot, lost 3 huge fish. Nitrite spike 2.0 managed to save 8 out of the 22 fish. Would have done better but i panic

I'm a huge goldfish fan! i'm currently raising about 10 big ranchus right now... my biggest one is at about 7 inches. I've had orandas, panda butterfly moores, ryukins, all sorts... but i traded them all for a couple of red & white ranchus. I've always thought the ranchu was an ugly looking fish, until i saw a full size one... it pretty much took my breath away! No wonder they was called the King of Goldfish?
