All Kinds Of Fry Food....

Tnx for your warm welcome Ranchugirl.

Sorry but do not have any pics at the moment. The ryukins used for the batch mentioned above are in fact quite new. I just got them from Thailand about 6 weeks ago; aa grade; approx 2.5" (I hate buying large fish) with a very nice distinctive hump and a high erect dorsal. In fact I used a red & white female and the milt of two red males. As said, these Thai fish, although a bit expensive, are quite nice. I actually bought 12 - 7 are great, 1 is very nice but will not be using 'him' for breeding since he has only 1 anal fin and the other 4 are Calicos. The Calicos are also nice specimens to look at, but in my opinion they lack most of the true Ryukin characteristics.

Cheers

John

btw have been goldfish fanatic for these last 40 years and have done some judging in local fish shows.

I can assure you that the Maltese goldies are quite similar to Asian and American specimens :)

After a few unsuccessful batches of hatching brine shrimp i sent away for freeze dried uncapsulated shrimp eggs and to my dismay the fry wont even touch them though they are reportedly sometimes even better then actual live baby brine shrimp.. trying to get my local store to stock the frozen.. for now hikari first bites.. hoping i can find some soon i have a newly hatched batch of pure yellow comets that i'm looking forward to
