  • How many Goldfish
    Not sure - at least a dozen (the little buggers won't hold still long enough to count!)

  1. Thank you for the responses. It looks like it is now Fish Identification time... I may well be wrong about my little buddies being goldfish. Most of the time, I can't even spot them against the black liner, let alone get a clear look at them. I do have a vase that is perfect for fish portraits: About 18"h x 12"w x 3"d, and a background in photography. While I have other pressing obligations at present, I'll try to post a picture of one of these fish soon. Thanks again.
  2. Hi All, I'm new here, so if I'm not following proper procedure in any way, please offer gentle guidance! I have a 1,000 gallon pond with (about!) 15 to18 goldfish and 8 to 10 red nosed minnows. The pond is about 3 years old, has lots of vegetation and has an in-pond mechanical filter and an external bio filter that consists of two 1/2 wine barrels filled with lava rock. The pond seems very healthy. I originally stocked it with two 8" goldfish, a blond standard and a blond/orange comet, soon after adding a number of goldfish "feeders" of mixed colors and types (standard and comet). I later added the minnows and a couple shubunkin. The fish have bred the last two seasons and I now have quite a family. In the batch of feeders were three black coloration, standard goldfish. Their batch mates are now around 6 - 8" while they are only about 2 to 2 1/2". Fish born and raised in this pond are now larger than these three black colored fish. Can anyone tell me why these particular fish are remaining small?
