  1. Just came home from work and found these 3 dozing at the corner.
  2. That's flattering hehe. Thank you ryukin girl!
  3. Also excited to see Scuba's potential.
  4. If only they wouldn't get hurt, I would've squeezed them hahaha. Nice pearls!
  5. Is mongo a blue oranda? Anyway love 'em!
  6. Nice to have some pros here. @Hidr - Thanks for the advice! @daryl - That's great to hear. Unfortunately, there aren't any fish competitions here except for Flowerhorns. I wanted to take care of these guys and hope they grow to their full potential. Who knows they'll be stars someday. @Lupin - Wasn't able to visit the petshop yet. Will try to check the expiration date when i go there. Is Sera Activant phased out already?
  7. @jayne - Thank you jayne. Yes it's good to be here. @Anielynn - Nice to know u enjoyed it. @koko - Hi koko, thanks for dropping by! @~SHAWNA~ and CO_Goldies - Thanks a lot! Hope to see your tanks as well soon.
  8. Thank you for the reply. I saw Sera Activant from a petshop, is it good? When you use Centrum/Enervon tablets, do you pound it until it's fine enough to mix with the food? Are there no side effects with that, like unnecessary vitamins the fish is receiving? If none, this seems to be a very good idea because I have lots of Centrum vitamins to spare hehe. Also, I'm planning to buy a test kit soon. As for the pinched fin, yes it was there already when I bought him. The petshop owner is also meticulous about his fishes so I'm guessing my fish got it from handling or delivery from supplier.
  9. @Lupin - Thank you! I'm from central Philippines. There aren't too many petshops here that sells fish, let alone the fancy ones. These are the last 3 ryukins and I bought them from a respected petshop here. Would love to add last 2 GFs for the tank and they're gonna be Orandas, just going to wait for stocks. @Sakura - Thanks! There are only 2 pots of crinkled plant on the left side, other than that all of the plants are artificial. I've read a lot about GFs making salad out of plants, they like to nibble. For the substrate, I used regular pea gravel. @Anielynn - Thanks! I have a video but it's taken from my cellfone, the quality is not good but at least you'll get a glimpse of them. @CosbyArt, pigz1, j-pond, shellbell4ever, BuggyBear - Thank you guys for the encouraging words!

  11. Hi guys, I've always been a fan of fishes since I was a kid, especially goldfishes. I'm fairly new to this hobby because we previously owned an aquarium but didn't last long because I was still too young back then and the people maintaining the aquarium don't know much about taking care of fishes. That was almost a decade ago. Now I own a 50-gallon tank with 3 Ryukins. Here they are. I bought them last January 6, 2010 and since it was the feast of the 3 Kings that day, well I named them Melchior, Gaspar and Balthasar. I'm planning to add 2 more soon and it'll be Orandas. Thanks and more power to Koko's!
