It has been awfully quiet in the goldfish market lately that you can't find good specimen to add to your keeping blush.gif But wait,this maybe one exception.An unique blue scalation ranchu with impressive headgrowth.I was surprise that this is a male that exhibit such a pronounced head.I think he is about 13-14 cm the most.These are various pictures of the newly acquired fish.

hi Doc & everyone in RG.. i've just joined this forum and am also a newbie in this hobby... i start it about 1 year ago... and there are still so much things to be learn...

i love the blue colour in your ranchu.. it's very unique... it's a little bit hard to find such colourful ranchu here in indonesia... usually it's imported from sg or thailand...

is it your own breed??


cheers,

In growth and colors did I try

Hello every one all the way from Canada.
I must say what a strong looking fish Goldrush.. and the colors!!!

I am not new to the hobby, but am only a day old on here.
Goldfish in Canada are rarer then gold and have been having such a hard time to find any.
The only fish that i was able to find are in Toronto and were imported from tung hoi aquarium in Hong Kong.
Does anyone know How I could get my hands on some ''good quality'' fish. I am willing to pay $$

I am building a new set up to house my gold fishes in.
I plan on having 3 goldfish per 55 gallon tanks.
I was wondering what kind of filters I should use.
I was also wondering what you guys do for water changes, should I use city water? what about RO water?
How do you prep your water? anyone believe in UV sterilizers?

wow...i like that fish..very nice
