Yellow Goldfish
« on: September 11, 2009, 09:31:37 PM »

Does anyone know a reputable breeder who sells lemon yellow goldfish? i have heard a few rumors about good dealers, but i haven't actually found anyone to buy from.
i have expert level of experience in taking care of goldfish, so the difficulty of keeping such a goldfish will not be a problem. neither will the size needed for the environment. i can take any fish if someone knows where to get an unusually colored goldfish; however, if anyone knows where to get a lemon yellow  or bright yellow (not gold or orange or dawn pink and gold)i would be very much obliged.

I've seen a lot unique looking goldfish from Chinese breeders and others located in Asia from just browsing their websites.  They seem to be always trying to create new varieties of goldfish with desirable traits. Maybe you will have better luck getting one of these rare yellow goldfish from them.  Maybe you can email them directly and ask if they have these particular goldfish and if they are willing to ship them.

On one posts it said that most lemon goldfish given the right food and light will be orange or red goldfish.

I just got two juvey yellow fantails at Petco. The guy said you never know what they will turn out like in adulthood. I hope mine stay yellow. We named them Mac and Cheese. They live with a white and orange comet, an orange comet, and a long tailed comet that is orange. They really round out the tank nicely with their yellowness.

The common carp is a hardy fish, and koi reitan that durability. Koi must be kept in a 240 gallon container per fish. This means two koi would require 480 gallons of space. Koi are cold water fish, so it's advisable to have a meter or more of depth in areas of the world that become warm during the summer. In areas that get harsh winters, it is a good idea to have a pond that is a minimum of 1.5 meters (4 1/2 feet) deep so that it won't freeze solid. It is also a good idea to keep a space open with a bubbler and a horse trough heater.Koi's bright colors put them at a severe disadvantage against predators; a white-skinned Kohaku is a visual dinner bell against the dark green of a pond. Herons, kingfishers, raccoons, cats, foxes, and badgers are all capable of emptying a pond of its fish. A well-designed outdoor pond will have areas too deep for herons to stand in, overhangs high enough above the water that mammals can't reach in, and shade trees overhead to block the view of aerial passersby. It may prove necessary to string nets or wires above the surface. The pond should include a pump and filtration system to keep the water clear.Koi are an omnivorous fish and will often eat a wide variety of foods, including peas, lettuce, and watermelon.  Koi food is designed not only to be nutritionally balanced, but also to float so as to encourage them to come to the surface. When they are eating, it is possible to check them for parasites and ulcers. Koi will recognize the person feeding them and gather around at dinnertime. They can even be trained to take the food from one's hand.In the winter their digestive system slows nearly to a halt, and they eat very little, perhaps no more than nibbles of algae from the bottom. Their appetite won't come back until the water warms up in the spring. When the temperature drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 b0C), feeding, particularly with protein, should be halted or the food can go rancid in their stomach causing sickness.If kept properly, koi can live about 30–40 years. Some have reportedly lived up to 200 years.Owned a petstore   that's how they ship fish.
