Hi all! I'm new here, just posted in the newbies board but I'm pretty familiar with how forums work and know not too many people visit newbie boards.
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Taryn from Euless, Texas. I have a red and white Ryunkin and what I thought was a black moor, but he (or she?) is turning orange on the face and gold on the body. Very pretty and interesting. My Ryunkin's name is Midori (yes, from Guitar Hero II lol!!!) and the "black moor" is Orido. I've only had them for a couple of months and love them more everyday.
I hope to get to know you all better and learn a thing or two from you.

Welcome to the wonderful world of goldfish. It's good to see many new enthusiasts joining this very rewarding and exciting hobby. As a newbie, I presume you have a grasps of the fundamentals of fish rearing, ie. the Nitrogen cycle and the importance of cycling your set-up properly. If you haven't done so, I suggest you learn all you can through the net. Secondly is the importance of giving enough space for your fish, ie. no overcrowding. Thirdly, feed only what is required and no more than is necessary. The rule of thumb is enough so that the fish will finish the food in 5 minutes, 2 or 3 times a day. There must be no leftover food.

Moors are susceptible to colour change and generally change colour over their lifetime. Only 'true' black moors (broadtail or otherwise) remain stable. Choose only full black ones to ensure this (no orange or gold on their undersides). Ryukins are the most 'aggressive' amongst all fancy goldfish types. Try to not keep them together with 'wen' type goldfish such as lionheads, ranchus or orandas as they are known to 'peck' at the latters' heads and cause real damage!

Good luck!
