Thanks Mjfromga and FishyMandy! It’s very nice to get compliments from dedicated goldfish hobbyists!

By the way my favourite comet is Magnum. Of course it doesn’t sounds like a newsbeat  lol 😂  but I see him like a perfect example for classical comet goldfish- pure golden-red colour, symmetrical long fins, beautiful attraction of movements and an example for simplicity. I believe he is under 2 years old and in time he will be really impressive once.

I actually don't normally like single tails, but they've grown on me ever since I did an experiment with them and kinda ended up stuck with them. Now I don't mind them at all, though I still much prefer Fancies. I have a baby Sarassa Comet that I hope makes it to spring and I'm able to raise. They're not as popular as these plain orange ones and it would be nice to have a decent sized one and see how they look as adults.

Hi everyone :)

In my place all fish tanks are okay and I assume the fish are happy enough ;)

Just a brief clip, and as you see not changes. Actually, the red spots  of my Shubunkin goldfish, Blue Steel, disappeared, so now he is mainly blue, silver, white, plus black spots.

This summer I am playing to buy some quality Bristol’s Shubunkins, hopefully :thumbup2:

That is my son's goldfish, male ryukin, name Gucci. Temporary in my tank :) My son is 6 and he has to learn a lot about proper care of goldfish. So everything is under control ;)

Does your snow name his fish?

He himself find the name of his pet, he is very creative (like me :lol:

I think it is great to educate our children to respect and love the animals and mother nature.

I totally agree. Justine has been wanting a lot of pets. She even put a beetle in a bottle and found out that they need water and food just like everything else. Glad it was a beetle lets just say that for now :rofl

 Hi goldfish keepers!

I would like to share two new things what recently  happen with me. 

 Well, one of my favorite goldfish are bristol's shubunkins. Here in Northern Ireland (where I live) and Ireland, I was looking for them probably for more then 3 years, unfortunately with no success. Last year I contact with one of the best UK breeders. She is from England and no doubt she is absolutely brilliant breeder with a lot of competition prices and awards, a great person as well who is breedeing one of the best bristol's shubunkins in the world. So when it came time to deliver the bristol's shubunkins from England (part of UK) to Northern Ireland (part of UK) both of us found out that the delivery isn't cheep........more then hundred of pounds($150-$250) only the parcel (a box with 5 goldfish). And pay attention, these is regarding all life stock (birts, plants, snails and etc............ Probably it is the same price to send goldfish from England to South Africa. I was really unhappy because UK delivery for England, Scotland and Wales, all part of UK, is approximately £25, and for Northern Ireland, also part of UK, the delivery price is simply ridiculous ..........anyway, I didn't buy not because I'm not able to, it's because it's unfair.........well, no bristol's shubunkins for me..... but life is still beautiful ;)

  Yesterday I went to one of the local pet stores to buy some frozen fish food for my fish and surprisingly I found out that they have a new delivery of aquarium fish. My attention was attract by one fish tank full of common shubunkins goldfish, between 30-40 goldfish, each £1.99.........and there I saw it.......a champion fish with huge potential. Well...I bought it :D , only £1.99 ($3). I would  like to share some pictures with my new baby comet shubunkin which at the moment is hardly 2,5 inches. He/She already is ready for competition :P 

 Here some fresh pictures.

Thanks Sharon and Mandy, you’re very kind!

 Actually I forgot to share something interesting. So in the beginning of this month I was away from home, enjoying my holiday for exactly 2 weeks, 14 days. During that period of time I left all of my fish who are leaving in 3 different types of tanks without food, not feeding at all. When I back I found my fish all alive, hyper active, very hungry and the water was crystal clear. Well, the head of my Jumbo flowerhorn was double smaller, obviously he used some energy sources from that part of his body. The comets, absolutely no issue at all, happy and healthy as usual. The planted low tech nano tank was looking ok as well. The only thing I did, before to go to my holidays,  is to instruct my neighbour regularly to check the conditions of the fish tanks, leaking, potential electric problems, to look for something wrong like dead fish or unpleasant smell......in other words to check every 3rd day is everything ok with my tanks.....but strongly instructed- no feeding. Why I did that, because I have very very  bad experience when someone else feed my fish. Of course I have to mention as well that a week before my holiday I feed my fish bit more then usual to collect some extra energy.

So, the conclusion regarding comets goldfish and all other types of long body goldfish is that 2 weeks period of time is absolutely fine without feeling. That’s my personal experience and the choice is yours.

Good for you!   Any type of goldfish can handle a two week fast.
