I am sure most of you know that I am no green water enthusiast when goldfish keeping is concerned.But my innate inquisition compelled me to experiment on my very first outdoor setup with green water cultivation .Initially I had to struggle to achieve an acceptable green as measured against the colormetric chart provided by HB . With a little bit of patience and lots of trials and errors I was soon able to control and maintain within an acceptable range.Barely two weeks into my pioneer enterprise, I could hardly wait to show all some of the amazing results which hitherto I had remain sceptical of its effect on goldfish keeping.What you are seeing are some strong improvement in bulk,structure,depth ,hood growth and coloration in 3 of my 4 fishes featured.Now this experiment was conducted purely without biased or any prior influences and the results shown are genuine without any alteration. Neither are they photographically enhanced.I leave it up for the fish to do the talking and for all to make your own respective conclusions


……………….Down the road I look and there runs Matrix, hands of gold(fish) with (colour)red like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green water called home………..

If you can have the 'before' and 'after' pics will be better.

OK.Keep these pics.Then compare them again 2 weeks later.The colours of their pectoral fins and tails should improve further.

Hey doc... looks really wonderful. I used green water here in CN for several mths but recently stopped coz my fish seem to be dying suddenly. i conclude that due to the change into summer conditions, there are probably too much bacteria blooming and that's wat killing my fish. so i'm concluding that have to really control the conditions with green water too.
in short, when keeping fish in green water... have to provide for alot of water space per fish. some how affects it.

cheers!

Ok let me tell you a brief history of the fish featured.The first two fish are relatively not new.The last one together with another yellow gold were purchased on 8/07/06 and pic of the fish shown in this forum were taken on 11/07/06.Now please factor another 10 days(quarantine in clear water) into the day of purchase and that will mean these two fishes together with the two older ones were introduced in green water on 17/07/06.14 days later the fish are taken withTV profile(as above)And this morning I share with you their side profiles.

Fren

The before is taken under quarantine and an indoor setup
The after is taken with the morning sun on them
Hence the different in lighting

5-7 days depend on the intensity of the green water
