This list is not exhaustive. Feel free to add those I miss out.

The way goldfish is, no LFS or farms could guarantee the quality of fish they sell. A bro may catch a good one from a certain LFS but it does not mean you can also find an identical one when you visit.

When bros do post good fish sighting, you better be quick to move your butts to catch one yourself too, within 24 hours.

Looking for THE ranchu is probably a game of luck. Patient is the key for success. Narrowing down your search to the following LFS and farms may help.

You can find a comprehensive list of other LFS in Sinagpore, and the details of below listed LFS such as their address and phone numbers etc, from the below link.

To keep this topic as a lst of purely LFS and farms, please post their relevant discussion, updates and corrections at this correction topic.

"C328" - Clementi Florist and Aquarium

Usually have a few small tubs and glass tanks of goldfish. Occasionally can find cheap and nice ranchu, demekin and ryukin. Has the largest selection of accessories with competitive pricing. The bosses and helpers are friendly and pretty knowledgeable too. It’s impossible to select fish on crowded hours. Closed on Sundays. There are three LFS on the same block. The real C328 is the one next to Neptune Clinic.

Location Map

Things to do: Eat clay-pot rice at the next-door coffee shop and visit PolyArt Aquarium further down the block.

"AC" - Aquatic Connection

The place master keepers hang out. You think the fish got standard or not? biggrin.gif Honest shopkeeper, Seah, makes this a well-liked goldfish shop. May not have constant supply of quality goldfish but when shipments do come in, ohmygod..., the fishes are good and competitively priced as well.

Location Map

Things to do: Hang'out with the goldfish dudes.

"TFT" - The Fish Tank

Often have nice Thai side and top view ranchus. Oranda and Demekins are usually available as well. Price is quite a tad high according to some bros. Regular clients get telephone call updates on new arrivals. Others must try their luck weekly. Used to bring in quality top-view Japanese. Generally a reliable source of good thai ranchus. Noon to 8 pm. Closed on Sunday (I think.)

Location Map

Things to do: Eat absolutely fabulous ice kachiang with crushed peanut toppings at the hawker centre; go to the middle-roll stall with a long que!

"Ben" - Ben Wong @ Tiong Bahru Market

Since the closure of the TB Market for renovation, Ben has moved to a new shop on the same block as Keong Seong. It's called Wu Hu (五湖). It's one of the cutest LFS I've ever been to occupying half a HDB shop yet has billions of little fish tanks with all kinds of fishes on sale. biggrin.gif

Location map

Things to do: Visit Keong Seong. Next door bakery sells "home made" kaya spread that's pretty good...

"JK4" - Jalan Kayu 4 (2 shops: Front and Behind)

Shop in front:
Has constant supplies of Thai and Chinese ranchus. Ryukins are also in abundance. Price is always on the acceptable range. Note that the uncle's face will turn black if he sees you stirring his fishes and still not buying lol.gif. Breeds his own discus and ranchus too.
Challenge: Try your best to tickle the stern bald Teochew uncle. nananana.gif


Shop at the back:
Next, you might want to walk about 20m away to another farm, also known as "JK4", which share the same building. It is more commonly tagged as "JK4 - the behind one". Have fun talking to the white-haired uncle.
He has several small cement ponds that house small goldfishes. Rents out large cement ponds for local aquarists.

Things to do: Summer Koi is just across the bridge. They import TVR BBR from Japan from time to time


====
Summer Koi
No.4, Seletar West Farmway 4, Jalan Kayu, Singapore

I've never been there... but according to many bros, it imports Japanese ranchus occasionally.

Swee Seng Aquarium

Often overlooked but this LFS, not far from C328 and C354, usually has quite a number of tanks with nice goldfish.

Things to do: There's nothing to do in that neighbourhood, except walk around the block to find the so-claimed "lobster bigger than a little girl" in a seafood restaurant.

Home of Ranchu (HOR)
(UPDATE: 7-August-2004 - HOR has moved to 96 Sungei Tengah)

This is a new shop (opened in early November 2003) and specializes in sales of Thai side and top-view Ranchu of decent quality but pricey. Occasionally carries Chinese Ranchus, and some Ryukins as well.

Location Map

The current location is quite hard to find. All you have to do is to walk right in till you see a big well. From there, you will have to walk further in through some sheltered pond before you see the shop/farm.

Opening Hours:

Everyday: Till 5 pm

Things to do: Buy some duckweeds to feed your goldfish.

=====
UPDATE: August-2005 - HOR is no longer in operation
