My Zen Goldfish Tank!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm sort of new to the forum, I've posted here before but I had to part with my goldfish after a move and only kept my tropicals.

Ever since I have been planning a goldfish tank in the back of my mind and here it is finally realized.

This tank is my Zen, it is in my bedroom at the foot of my bed. I still can't believe how perfectly it matches the images I had in my head when planning it.

This is Pearl my matte white Ryukin, no pigment at all:

Elisina (recycled the name from my last collection of goldies :) ) my favorite type of calico because their pattern resembles a japanese water color painting:

Most painted tanks I've seen are painted black. Looks nice, but I wanted somethign unique.

Thank you Shell :D

The plant is a 'giant fancy plants: bamboo' I believe. I wedged the base of it behind the spray bar to hold it in place, and it does a great job of hiding the spray bar of the xp3 and it also hides the koralia 2 I have that keeps the bottom clear of debris.

Very nice!! Cute fish!

Thank you Mrs. Mohr :)

I've never heard of painting the bottom of a tank before, it really is a clever idea. I like the theme, and the color you chose too. It matches very well with the cuties that are inhabiting. :D

So lovely. I can't even keep track of all of the cuties you have in there. Though Pearl might be my favorite.

cool that's good to hear! One of my room mates said it was 'cute'. Not exactly what I was going for but ehhh lol

Thank you, the color is my favorite part, mainly because I surprised myself that I didn't manage to make any big mistakes lol

I've seen a lot of tanks where the bottom was painted, but they always always use black paint. It looks very nice with golds, but I wanted a unique theme.

yeah I have too many! Havent decided which 5 will stay in this tank, and which will go to the next 60g.

The little shubs are in there for grow-out then they're off a family members pond.

Thank you :)

Pearl is very special to me, I still remember when I found her. I just randomly wanted to go to that fish store that has a lot of goldfish, I think I was getting an air line or something, and when I was looking at all their goldfish outside, I see a perfectly white ryukin happy as can be in a tank full of reds and red/whites.

she was the only one with the solid black eyes and blushing cheeks.

I couldn't flag down help fast enough!
