Hi Goldfishlovers.

I want to introduce meself.
First of al me English is,t verry good, so i hope you wil reconsider this while reading my post.

I Live in The Netherlands (aslo referd as Holland)
As you no in Europa the Fancy Goldfish are verry hard to come buy.

I have selectet some fish from different stores, and the kwalati is verry different then the most fish from Azia/ the USA.


But recently i have found i impotruer in Holland wo had some better gread fisches.

I bouht 4 big Oranda (thai/malaisia breed) 1 some what smaller Oranda.
Those fish have verry deep boddys, wen could be a bit better, bit the tails are symetric, nice deep forkt, and the have good swimming balans.
Its feld like hitting the jackpot because i was lookinf for better fish for years now biggrin.gif

1 Little black Ranchu 4 centimeters( i belve its cald malasia black)
1 Orange Ranchu more TV, whit not so great wen, but nice round back.
1white whit licht orange spots Ranchu (not that great exemple) but i realy liketo see how it develops

In This Tank also swims a Red/Orange Oranda whit nice black stripes in it tail (reare find for a LFS in Holland)
This is more a Chinese type i think, longer fins, les deeper boddy.
Aslo the swims a verry nice black/bleu Oranda whit long fins who i have taken over from a outher enthousiastic (also great kwaltati for a Dutch LFS)

in this tnak there are 10 fisches, its a 400 liter tank, whit sand bottum and some plants.Also a group of 7 Corry doras Aeneus, and some Apple snails.

I have 2 big filters on it who can (whit no filling and free uotlet) generate 1500 liter ech in a our)
and a UV-c lamp wo stays on for about 9 ouhrs a day
I weekley do 75% waterchanche.



In my outher tank(240 liters, weekley minum 60% waterchange or more, 1 filter that can generate 1500 liter a hour)
swims a Nice lilltle ryukin (also bouht by the dealer whit the big Oranda) whit great potnetial for fish bouht in Europa.
The also swims a tiny red cap (great wen but wil not grow much bigger) i think it was a poor secemin wo hase been to long in the LFS.

The outher fish in this tank are A lionhead/ranchu like fish whit verry little wen and long fins.
A lionchu whit great buffalo head.
A lionchu.Rancu nice collors but poor Wen.

And at least a Oranda whit long fins, long boddy nothing special, i bouht it from a lady who had a tank so stokt that the fisches could even turn there buts.

Most of the fish i bouht in Holland are better then wat you see mosltely but stil, its nothin compared to the nice fish from Aziš en home breeders.


Ps i no i have the tanks quit ful now so i reagely make some extra water changes, because there a some smaller fish wo wil benefit from cleaner water (Wen/head groht)


I hope you can read me english tongue.gif
and i whil try to purchache a nice Fotocamera so i can show you my fisches, i realy like to now what you poeple think of it, and have more tips.



I realy hope to learn more about Fancygoldfish here beacause in me home region its stil a hoby wo wont catch on verry fast.

ThnQ for your kind welcome.
I realy hope to purchase a nice foto camera in December, and learn how to post picturers biggrin.gif

I realy like the site so far(and wil in the futere i think)
There is lot of Nice info and Pictures whit explenations bundeld on this forum, it confiniant beacause in The Netherlands this hobby is starting on real slo (maybe it wil never catch on) But i hope more and more poeple in Europa whil pick op this nice hobby, and apriecate the art and beaty of Fancy Goldfish.
I also hope the wil be more comercial sale points, beacuase the quality of the fish here, is morslety fry that just skip the culling, and gets ship of to make a viuew buks out of it.

But sometime there a nice fish to find,(not as nice as in Asia and the USA. I wan lucky that i could have purchased some fish from a view differen LFS and one guy wo imported some fisg from Boss Ranchu Malaisa (got some realy chunky Oranda whit deep forkt nice tails now smile.gif )

My tanks are full, and i hope to learn more about care grooming, and standers, maby in the future i want to buy some bettr fish, like good TVR and Show Grade Lionchu,Izumu Nankin stuf like that but wo would want that e smile.gif

for the moment i am a verry happy fish owner who loves Fancy Goldfish and i hope to bennifit from this forum and vica versa.

Greeting Nico AKA Goldenpearl (Goldfishlover was already taken sad.gif )thas my name on a Dutch Aquarium forum
