Hello to all from Sonoma County, California

Recommended Posts

I added my first goldfish in April 2013 to my outdoor fountain. When our pilot fish Halley lived more than a week and I had my API test kits...it was back to the LFS for more. :D And while the esteemed Stephen M. Meyer frowns on the "stamp collector" mentality of some pond keepers, I am proudly in that category.

Halley the comet was 1st, then Flip-flop the Shubunkin (shoe-bunkin, get it?) then Millie and Vanilli (the albino) both comets. Next came big Shinto, a tancho-style male comet. I just couldn't stop.

I rescued two feeder fish: 15 cent and Tancho. Why not, there was plenty of room in my 900 gallon fountain.

When I thought a bird or raccoon had eaten Shinto I brought Queen B. home and he sure came out of hiding then! Love at first sight! I'm now raising their fry but that is a story for a different post.

Then we added Cali the big calico Shubunkin, and Skeletor the wild-eyed Kin Kikokuryu. Note the bright yellow spot on his nose...he is just now starting to express his yellow-ness on his sides. I couldn't stop there. I added Gwen, the Ryukin who just locks consciousness with me as soon as he can see me and constantly vies for my attention. Is your latest fish ALWAYS your favorite one? I sure love that little guy.

That makes nine goldfish and a koi, and if you count the 7 fry I'm at 15 goldfish in less than 8 months. If you'd like to see photos of the pond and the fry and their tank, please click the outdoor fountain link above.

I make my own goldfish food and feed them 2-3 times a day by hand. I'm constantly learning more about what is best for them and that's why I'm here.

Best Fishes to all of you! -Mysterygirl

Welcome! Looks like a well-stocked, wonderful environment for your goldfish. :) Can't wait to see more. Do you think you'll do a bigger pond for your koi as he grows? I'd love to see that, because this one is so good!

Keeping in line with Koko's policy of keeping my fishy photos within the kokosgoldfish web site, I've started this pseudo-blog - really just a thread - here at Mysterygirl's Floating-World.

I appreciate all of your encouragement and comments.
