  1. Good Afternoon, Yesterday we while at our LFS we were browsing and came across the very fish that my teen had mentioned wanting a few months ago. Ranchu Goldfish This is Boba Pearl. Our latest addition, s/he is currently new fish quarantining and is awaiting the cycling and completion of his/her new home. We are new to this species. So, any advice, facts and experiences you can share are greatly appreciated. Specifically, we are setting up the tank this weekend, and were thinking of a planted and layering with fluval plant and shrimp stratum lava soil and river rock / pebbles on top. Constructive critisism welcome. Thanks guys and gals. We are super excited about our new baby!

    Sick ranchu

    Hi! I have a sick ranchu, Sealy. He’s been on the bottom of the tank for about 3 days. I’ve had him and his 2 ranchu sibs(Gloria and Daisy) for a year. Sealy is still interested in feeding but I’ve on given boiled peas to see if it was constipation( hasn’t helped). He’s always been prone to stay at the top of the tank & I assumed he had a problem with his swim bladder. I want to dose some aquarium salt, but I have a Japanese Trapdoor snail, Mr Fujiyama and fear it will hurt/kill him. I’m at the take end of cycling a QT so it’s not really an option yet. What do you advise?
  3. So just wanted to share this as I find it cool. I recently set up a 55 gallon outdoor tank for a pond for breeding pseudomugils and native glass shrimp and put in cycled sponge filters and a few of plants from my LFS (I work there) and my plants from my Ranchu goldfish pond (Hornwort in particular) and after a few weeks letting it grow and do its thing I have atleast 20 odd Ranchu babies! Plus the glass shrimp I wild collected are doing quite well and I think possibly berries hard to see it though. So the ranchus were a complete surprise but a pleasant one. The photo attatched is one of the largest fry I've found. Getting fat on hikari first bites and baby brine shrimp!
  4. Just wanted to share a few photos of my favourites. I’ve got about 25 or 26 (honestly I’ve lost count). Due to time I don’t bother with the traditional keeping practices, but my way works well at least for pet quality fish. I generally let them live their lives in big above ground ‘ponds’ during the summer so they can eat bugs and algae (and twice daily feedings). The ponds have cattails and pickerel rush which handles most the ammonia though I also run several sponge filters as well. definitely wish more people were keeping these, but they can be more difficult to source than the side view ranchu.
