Ranchu is only 4 inches max and fantail is about 5-6 inches. I expected them to grow more than that but oh well, maybe they're late bloomers :D

I think black is the color goldies TEASE us with! We see it in the Petstore and say Wow isn't that pretty! We take home the fish, it grows usually the black disappears.......but by then we are way to far in :heart with them to even remember that the color caught our attention in the 1st place!! :lol:

Erin, I think u might wanna think about exposing ur fish to sunlight. They all showing some colour-loss, especialy Radish, such a shame his bright red is now orange.

Hm, that may be difficult Riz, considering I live in an apartment complex with no balcony. :( How about keeping the tank lights on longer?

d_golem,

your fish grows big in 9months..what do you feed them?

btw,

exposing fish to sunlight will reduce the color? i thought it helps them improve their coloration? correct me if i am wrong..

d_golem,

The fantail grows enormous, but I was expecting more from the ranchu :D

Feed them the usual lah. Pellets (Tung Hoi, Hikari Lionhead, Sera Goldy Royal, Hikari Wheat Germ), HBH Algae wafer, brine shrimp, Bloodworms, peas, greenwater, and they (unfortunately) also munched on my Java fern and Anubias :D

btw,

U got it reversed there. I advised Erin to expose her fish to sunlight cos' they seem to experience colour loss :lol:

Sunlight will no doubt improve the colouration

Usually 6-8 hours a day the lights are on.

Hmm I got mine 12 hours a day :D but I think light is not the matter. Goldfish kept inside will sometimes lose the vibrancy of their colours

ok... i FINALLY found an old picture of my pedro from about a year ago... at this point, i had all ready had him for about a year at the time... but he had been in a horribly overstocked 30 gallon... then i got my new tank and he had a pretty dramatic growth spurt!!! now he is the giant of my 60 gallon!!! :)

before... 5/2005 apprx. 4 inches inc. tail

youngpedro.jpg

after... 3/2005 apprx. 7 inches inc. tail

IMG_0014.jpg

i think it is kinda neat how he looks blue eyed in these pics... unfortuneatly, that is just a camera trick... but i :heart him anyway!!! :)
