Aimeekat: I may be interested in your future ranchu babies. But right now I think could take a oranda.

and a few questions:
When do you think shiping will be ready?
How much money does the shipping and the fish cost?
When will you be breeding ranchus and butterflys?

Aimee: I'm interested too of your future ranchu babies.  Smiley
I wonder if you can breed a ranchu and a telescope.  Undecided
If it's possible then I'll name the new breed "Telechu" Smiley

They're lovely! Cheesy

Pappy: Lol, "Telechu" sounds adorable! xD But "Demechu" would fit too since telescope eye is called Demekin in Japanese Smiley
Actually, when you breed a ranchu and a telescope you should end up with something much like the telescope orandas we were discussing in another thread Smiley Some may end up being normal ranchus and some could have one protruding eye and one normal... a funny mix Wink

Hi, I recently purchased an Orandas (red) head and white.  I'm so exctied and can't wait to build.  I am new to the care of my fish (along with the Orandas (red), I have a black and orange and the two black with the eyes that pop (sorry can't remember the name of those) my husband wanted those lol. Anyway, My orange and black orandas has been hiding behind a rock and will eat well during breakfast and lunch time but when he eats he goes back to the bottom.  Is there something wrong with him???  I'm concerned because I am within the  14 days if something goes wrong and I really want to build my fish family as healthy as possible so any positive feedback would be greatly appreciated!!

Is this at night because some people report their fish resting at the bottom at night which is normal it is just like sleeping. Wink Or it is caused by stress. How big is youre tank?

How long has your tank been set up?  Has it been cycled already?  Did you check the water parameters?  This will help us see if you have a problem first.  Welcome to the crowd of goldfish lovers!

There might be an ammonia spike due to the new fish you added, so test the water, and perform 50-70% of water change.
Are you cleaning your filter in tank water or tap water? (Avoid the tap water! It kills the beneficial bacteria that keeps the tank safe!)

Let me show some new Oranda to you as soon as I can post picture here.

Thanks to everyone for your help!  My husband and I do watch the tempature.  I have a 30 gallon tank...but I do use tap water so how should prepare my water?!  Good news, I was watching the fish this morning and they saw me coming and swam to the top for good and my orange Orandas was swimming very well...so it may just be resting it happens during the day and night but I will watch closely.  I can't wait to see the new Orandas--I'm so happy to be apart of the fish family they are so beautiful

Always add water conditioner (that removes chlorine, chloramine and heavy metals) to the new water you put in the tank. Smiley I'm using buckets for now and I'll let the new water sit overnight. Smiley
P.S. I don't put water conditioner in the buckets while it sits overnight. Only after I finished siphoning the "old water" and when I'm ready to dump the "new water' in the aquarium. Smiley

mybetterhalf: The temperature? That doesn't in any way mean testing the water parameters. I'd want you to test the ph, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, these are the things that will have the biggest impact on your fish!!!

Thank you so much for the water information, this is very helpful.  So, silly question, can I use tap water or I should boil the water and let it sit or do I purchase bottle water??  I'm learning so much!

Oh gosh Pappyfish I would love that fish!!!!!

mybetterhalf: you dont have to boil the water but you have to let it sit for 24 hours per gallon and add water conditioner following the intrsuctions on the container.
