Meet the Fish :  Ninja 忍者

 

Ninja is eating with the school now, and isn't as shy as s/he used to be. She is all white with lemony yellowing, and without the red eyeliner that Vanilli and Tancho sport.

This is his   "I know you've been trying to net me so you can weigh me, but it is NOT happening"  face.

Bacterial Cyst

 

Vanilli has a large red zit-like bump under her lip.

 

As far as I can tell it is a baterial cyst. I've been treating her with Medi-gold, and haven't had to quarantine her to medicate her. She's like - "hmmmm.....amazing....these pellet just drop right in front of me throughout the day. When did I start being the luckiest fish in the pond?"

 

She's very much in on the game, getting close to me so I can isolate her to feed her medicated pellets. She's one of my smartest fish, and best feeders.  I hope she gets better soon. She's been on antibiotics for 2 days and the spot isn't as red today. Take a look.

Don't judge her, nobody likes to have their photo taken when they're sick.

All your fish are beautiful, I love your Ryukin names. I wish my fry looked as nice as your Ninja does. I made a lot of mistakes raising them so they are so much smaller than they should be at 8 months old :( Guess we learn from those mistakes though!

Thanks FishyMandy,

Ninja is a result of and a force of Nature.

I can't take credit for THAT one.

S/he says thanks for the kind words. 

 

My fish are smaller than other fry if I just go by date. I try to feed them about 1-2% of their body weight, which isn't much. It still goes right through them, heh.

I think your Mystery Fry the Black turning Orange, is a Boy... I think I see some Stars on those gills. Unless that just color :)

 

But I love them all :)

Ninja is such a pretty fish. I love how the yellow is almost just a highlight on an all white fish.

I noticed that too, Koko, I think you're right. It sure looks that way in the photo. I just took a look outside and can't see them. At least I won't have to change his name. I was fairly sure he was a girl, as her brother's breeding stars were early and very visible. I had her in a tank until she was about 10 months and didn't see any. Now she's a him. What a late bloomer. If I catch him chasing the ladies we'll know for sure. :teehee

Ninja says thanks, she's not used to getting compliments from humans, it make her feel so grown up.

Great photos and really nice looking fish :).  Ninja and Kawaii are my favorites.  Love how white their white coloration is...I don't see many bright white goldfish .  Is Kawaii gaining more white or more orange as he/she grows?

The ryukins have nice humps and tall dorsals...they look very happy and healthy.  Do you know how old they are?

A temporary quarantine tank

tank.jpg

 

The 3 Ryukins love to play in the combination bubbler-waterfall.  They have lots of space in the "living room/dining room" to swim freely and at night can retire to the bedroom area which is (relatively) sheltered with artificial and real plants. They really do sleep there, all three of them in a huddle. The gate and marbles are for intellectual stimulation, the live anacharis is to nibble on.

Thanks Kayla - I'm not sure on their age, but I'd guess about a year? Stanley is just losing the last of his black coloration. 

 

I'm glad you appreciate white goldfish. I have a black pond liner and lights above the pond which really showcases the white fish at night. I thought Vanilli would stay all white, but she's busy growing her orange spots to look more like her best friend Milli. :doh11:

Here's a picture of their temporary tank.

Their "bedroom" is in the corner, behind the plant.

Fish Release Party

 

A big day for the  3 ryukins: they're now in the pond. Everyone is getting along - and one of the ryukins went in the viewing dome within 25 minutes of exploring. They're brave little fish.
