Everybody knows Petsupermarket, right - chain store, no bigger fish than around 4 inches, no goldie more expensive than $ 5.99...?

Well, not last Friday! I walked in there for my weekly visit on fish delivery day, and found - a huge ryukin!! That baby is at least 7-8 inches, with a gigantic hump! For a price tag of 24 $ he went home with me!! :happydance

It turns out, a lady brought him in, with an equally big black moor, since she couldn't take care of them anymore. That fish she did not get at any ol' pet store, thats for sure! It looks more like a DandyOranda/Goldfishconnection fish, so I paid the 24 bucks and smiled inside!!

Oh, and did I mention, its a fish that Jess would love - all white!! :panana

Will take a picture tomorrow, he was breathing rather heavily, and his fins were clamped, so he is in the "purple soup" (PP) for the 2. day now, and already looks so much better....

wow god nice find! how big is he body length? the size of both fists? That would be a sweet fish for me, this goes double for Jessica ;) you must have alot of tanks and room for all those wonderful fish. I cant wait to get my own apartment and grow my fish out as wonderful as yours are :D

edit: I do own a nice calcio rukuin that cost me $5.99 that thing is 4" now but its got small fins of a common so its body looks really huge. I just need patience than that thing will double in size oneday

Lovely, the guy from the store wanted to take him out in a itty-bitty net!! AAAAAAHHHH!! I told him to take that net way, and got him out myself with my hands...Had to use both hands to hold him, so he is a handful! :)

How wonderfully lucky to walk into that! Sounds like you got a good price too. At my LFS they call three inch fish "Jumbo" and charge nearly thirty dollars.

There was a monster like that at my LFS for $30 and I was broke, I went back and he was gone. What happened to the moor?

:P Nice one!!!!! Goldies here in N.J. that size go for around $40.00 and up. I just picked up my second Panda Butterfly today. I have a 55 gallon devoted to Telescopes only. I also have a 58 gallon devoted to Ryukins. Any way congrats!!!!
