Happy Holidays! and Ranchu Update

11 posts in this topic

Happy Holidays, everyone! :hoho I've been away for a while, but I'm back for a bit, and ready to lurk around my favorite goldfish forums and see how everyone's doing!

My little ranchu, Bubbles, has grown quite a bit over the past year and a half--I've included her/his baby pic with a current pic to see how much she/he's grown. :goldfish:

In case you were wondering, I feed my fish Repashy Soilent Green, the occasional frozen bloodworms and peas, and Omega One pellets.

Thank you! :)

Bubbles changed color almost overnight when I started feeding him the Repashy gel food. My kids didn't believe it was the same fish, he changed color so quickly LOL!

Beautiful! Congrats on Bubbles' growth and health! 

Thank you! :) I decided not to add a second fish to my (29 gal) tank, and I think it's made a big difference in Bubbles' overall health.

Thanks! :) I think he's the healthiest fish I've ever had! The tips and advice from this forum have really helped. :thumbup2:

Indeed; my last goldie, Marcus, was all alone in his 60 gallon and I always suspected it had something to do with overall health and growth (we unfortunately lost him over the holidays, but had him for about six years).

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. :( Six years is a good long time for a goldfish--I bet he had a very happy life with you! :heart

Hi all! Here's an update on my goldfish, Bubbles! Another 8-9 months later, Bubbles has changed color again!

At first, I was worried that Bubbles was ill when I saw white appearing behind the gills, but Bubbles seemed happy and healthy. After a week, Bubbles turned from all orange to mostly white with a few orange bits. Very cool!

I sure hope he did, Fred; we try to provide the best home and life for them -- especially compared to the stores they come from! 

Thank you very much for your sympathies.
