    Hello :D

    I went to the LFS today and bought the following:

    1 new bulb for 15G (not right size, going back tomorrow :p lol)

    1 new layer of filter media for the pond filter :D

    4 Shubunkins :D

    I only had the intention of getting 2 but I got money off if I bought 4 :D
    I'm pretty sure I got 2 females and 2 males :)
    I threw some food in the pond immediatly after I put them in and 3 of them fed :)
    I haven't seen the other one since I put her in, but hopefully she will turn up :)

    Heres some pics just before I let them go :) As you can see I went for specific colouration Red heads! :p

    She should do, shes the biggest out of the lot! She is the biggest one on the bottom right of the 2nd pic :)
    These guys are tempting me to get more shubunkins but I'm pretty full stocked now, so I will have to wait! :D

    Yeah if you do decide to get more have you thought about feeder commets? Many of them actually have big pretty fins and they're only 14cents haha! They start small but then you get to watch them grow up.

    Lol :) Ponds are great fun!
    We don't have 'feeder' goldfish in the UK so the cheapest I can get goldfish for is about £1.50 each which I guess is about $1.50 aswel.

    Actually your pound is 1.5 times the CDN dollar at the moment, there was a time it was 2.1 times so that fish would be .75-$1 here.

    You have the conversion rate but I think you did the math in reverse ;)

    1.50 pounds/2-2.25$ canadian...
