Or so she says! Allow me to introduce to you, Chubba! She was previously Mikey's fish. She lacks proper anal fins and has a problem with her swim bladder but the redness you see is a result of a genetic component that causes the blood to show more than normal. She is two years old and has always had this appearance. c: Chubba lives an otherwise normal and happy life with a fellow ryukin named Lin and a hibuna named Jade. I feed her in this little container (for now, until she outgrows it) so she always gets enough to eat. She's very spoiled and the tanks little princess. :heart And a photobomb! Thanks for looking!
Hi there, I hope I'm posting this in the right place... Here is a picture of my favorate goldfish... (Sorry the picture is soo large!) Random questions that arn't soo important about him... I know he is a fancy goldfish but what do you think in his genetics caused this color? Where does the color come from? What kind of goldfish (besides comets!) have it often? I'd love to get more like it! Could I breed more like it ever? I LOVE this gold color!!!
I am struggling to figure this out using the internet alone. I have ordered some goldfish books now, and I love genetics, so hopefully we can sort this out! I was doing a water change and found 9 fry. So, if I have a black moor (mother) and a calico ryukin (father), are there any substantial chances of getting a calico telescope? We would love one. Either way, the babies are well taken care of and loved. I'd love a basics on goldfish color genetics. Thank you!
