but asethetic wise, not too nice right?
buy fish and put in toyogo tubs all over the house.
the appreication value abit discounted if taking the total household asethetics as the benchmark .

won't the house look like a LHS with tub all over ?
home minister complain like mad with only one main tank and one QT.
i ve to hide the two plastic ones and 2 pails i used to transport and store water for changing

My limited experience with keeping small ranchus till they're quite large now shows it's difficult to smoothen an uneven back. In fact, one of the ranchu now has a new kink that wasn't there when it was small in size. sad.gif

The trick is not to find more space but to find new friends and get them interested in goldfish. You'll then generously give them "swee swee" ranchus to encourage them to pick up the hobby. Heck, if you're desperate enough, buy them a new tank and accessories so they can't have any excuse not to pick up the hobby.

But hor, I suggest you don't teach your friends too much and especially introducing him to RafflesGold.com ah. See lah, now Allan no longer wants my "swee swee" goldfish anymore when I could past him fishes I no longer like. Kekeke.

When you run out of frens to give your goldfish away, try attacking your mother's friends too. I know someone sucessfully did that not once but a few times. biggrin.gif I was so happy for him.

Won't lah. Actually all the toyogo tubs makes you look like a serious goldfish keepers. Your friends will believe you when you speak goldfish. Heck, didn't you watch GnG's show on CNA and see how wee yap's house looks like? There are so many containers of different sizes and shapes I envy him.

Oh, teach the babies at home how to swim first.

smile.gif CyberET pretty much explained clearly leow.

I just want to add that, IMO and I'm betting that, this ranchu will have a serious problem as it grows up. That small kink just milimeters above the tail joins will develop into a big kink. Becoz of that, the fish won't grow much longer while everything else such as the tails and the eyes will be bigger and out of proportion. But of course if that slight kink now is actually a photographic distortion of the real fish, then no such problem leow.

wahahahahahhahh..... use to train my maid to do that when I am away for business trip, but after that last trip which was 2 weeks, 3 of my tanks have problem (sick ranchu)....wah lan eh...........

Now I have no maid, (fire my old maid, heheheh, not due to water changing issue) and now I change the water myself sad.gif

It is indeed very siong, so good filter and water parameters is very important to me.

I need about 1.5hr to change 50% water for all the tanks. and I do that twice a week...hehehhehehe...

I am considering giving away some of not so nice fish, kekkeke.... but definitely nicer than HB's demekins tongue.gif ....just joking

Hey, I noticed your tank's sizes are not like those sold locally. Ours are by inches.

No wonder the feet of aquarium lamps are usually adjustable to fit slightly different width of tanks in different countries.
