my goldfish family
« on: April 03, 2011, 09:36:43 PM »

Here are some pictures of my sweet fish.   Smiley

Shamrock has been living with me for 1 year, Flash 6 months (his fin is only down because he's swimming so fast), Flurry (orange with white face) & Halley (mostly orange) are still in quarantine (I got them in February).  I don't know if you can see it, but Flurry has an orange spot on the top tip of her tail.    Cheesy

Thanks for the compliments!  They are all together now, in the 75 gal tank and look beautiful together!  I moved them 1.5 weeks ago.  I like having them all together in one tank.  And I like having only one tank to clean and feed.   Smiley

They all get along really well with each other and don't seem to have favorites, everyone likes everyone.

I can now see the attraction to having many goldfish, but I my tank may be full with these 4, since they are comets/shubunkin and can grow to be 10-12".  If I get another one, it will only be one more.  Not sure if that would be ok tho, I'd rather be under-stocked than over-stocked.  Does anyone have any advice on getting one more?

Flurry has a bit of a swim bladder problem, which seems to be directly related to what she eats.  I noticed this before I moved her.  It only pops up when I feed the crisps, so I'm not feeding those any more and she's ok.

I think you could safely get one or two more even, if you want to some day Smiley
But then... maybe you shouldn't be hurrying with it, but rather, if you find a goldie you like a lot somewhere, there wouldn't be a problem bringing it home Wink

Thank you!   Grin

They are brightly colored, and they have grown since those pictures were taken.  And Flash's tail is so long and flowing now...

Sure, I'll take a new picture soon.  I still need to hide my air hoses, but the goldfish don't mind, something else for them to pick at.   Smiley
