  1. He looks very nice, and his color coming in looks quite nice too.
  2. As you can see, some are webbed tail. However, I did not have a lot of stock to choose from, so I just tried to stick with the best and go from there.
  3. Hello all, Here is an update! They will be three months old in one week time. Most of them are reaching 1" in length, now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSK1qOX2vsE
  4. Is there a section on this site where we can post our experiences with fish sellers? Anyways, I think one of the things with buying these fish is many are imported from countries with conditions completely different than what we have here. So it is a guessing game how long these fish will live. I have come to the conclusion the best thing to do is breed them as soon as possible, that way you will always have backup and can grow fish that are adapted to our water and temperature.
  5. Probably people who have bought fish from them in the past. If I'm buying from a new supplier, I research them heavily, but if I bought from them in the past and was pleased with my purchase I generally don't research them again to see if anything has changed. Maybe I should, but I don't think most people do this. I wouldn't have had a clue about the current problems with GoldfishNet if I hadn't read about them here. Right. Well, I mean, the goldfish community is pretty tight-knit. I wonder where these people are that are buying his $300 fish. They don't really seem to be vocal or apart of any community as I never see reviews, YouTube videos, or comments on his fish. Whereas places like Dandys, I just have to YouTube Dandy videos and there are dozens of reviews. I'm one of them and you can see my comments about it in the thread at Goldfish Keepers. Not sure I understand what you're getting at? One thread does not represent 10+ fish being sold a week. my comment is pretty straight forward. People will keep buying his fish until people start speaking up about the bad quality.

  7. Sometimes I wonder who are the people buying these expensive fish off of that site, when a quick google search brings up many bad reviews. (As noted on GoldfishKeepers). So sorry to hear about the stress you are dealing with as a result of this.
  8. I swear my camera skills are getting worse by the video..!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TApzwYsh_ao
  9. Thanks! I will ideally like to keep 4 to 5 and breed them back to the female. The rest I am not sure what I'll do with yet!
  10. Nothing really different than yesterdays video, but tomorrow they are officially two months old. They really like the plants in their tank, now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B62PW60B2rw
  11. After doing research, what I added to the tank was actually water spangles, and not duckweed.
  12. I siphon the bottom of the tank whatever is visible at least two to three times a day. I think I have become addicted to doing this. I use a turkey baster. I have switched them now to 25% BBS and 75% dry pellets. The juvenile formula for fry that I have also comes in 0.5mm pellets so I have been feeding this as it doesn't muck up the water like the powder was. The lethargic fry I had I put back into the main tank the other day and I can't even tell which one it is now. So it seems he has gone back to being normal. I also added some duckweed to the tank. They really seem to like it and spend most of their time amongst it now nibbling and trying to rip the roots off. It's quite funny watching them try and swim around with a large root in their mouth. I only hope none choke! Here is a quick video I took. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UEeCZgbFII&feature=youtu.be
  13. Thanks for the response. I will definitely look for that food! I guess tonight I can start using Prazipro again. I used it on them from weeks 2-5, so I have not treated them in the last 3 weeks.
  14. Thank you both for your reply. @Arctic Mama - I will look into that. I am always looking for a variety to give to my fish! @Hinfin - Very nice fry! You have quite a few there. Today one of my fry seems lethargic. Well, I noticed it started last night. He just kind of floats through the water and seems to be panting (breathing faster than the other fish). I seperated him last night and put him into a tupperware bin. All of the other fish are active and fine, though. Perhaps this one ate too much dry food? This morning I noticed he did defecate. Before I left for work I put in some BBS for him.
