Fish Of Gold

Uh oh...I went to "Just Look"....

21 posts in this topic

I knew it was a bad idea to "just look" at the fish in PetSmart a few days ago.....I ended up with a tiny little bronze colored fantail goldfish. It will probably turn all orange later on, who knows. But it was so cute and he/she was the smallest goldfish in the tank. I don't have a name yet, I'm still trying to think of a good one.

But then......

I was grocery shopping in a neighboring town the very next day, when we were passing by the local independent pet store that I bought a couple of my goldfish from before in years past (Tricycle & Creamsicle) ....well you guessed it, I had to go and "just look" here too. Then I saw a goldfish I have never had before, not sure if he/she is a Lion Head, maybe you guys can let me know? It was just labeled as a "Fancy Goldfish" and it is a calico.

When I have time later I'll get their weights and measurements.

Cute fish!!  I'd say lionhead without much lion to it. :rofl  Not enough curve to the back to be a ranchu but not much wen either so hard to call it a lion head.  Sharon has coined the term "lisachu" for such a fish as that's just how I like them!  No dorsal fin, not much wen. :rofl

 

Congrats!!  Cuties!! :D

Very cute. I like mushy headed fish these days. Ranchu have grown on me too. Cute babies. Seeing as how they came from different systems, I wouldn't have put them together (QT separately) but good finds!

Ooops, I didn't know that they should be QT'd in different tanks! :yikes Guess its too late now, especially seeing I only have 1 QT tank anyway :no:

Prazi and metro together? What about the 0.3% salt? Did you see my post on asking how to proceed on their quarantine? Wondering if I got the salt amount right and whether to use a heater or not and that they were exposed to ICH and Anchor Worm so I wonder if I should add Dimilin etc.? My fish are still waiting in a 1 gallon bowl until I know the answer on the salt questions, I don't want to add too much ect. Can you go take a look at that post in Quarantine please?
