What size tank do you have, how many goldies and what kinds are they? Include pics so we can see your cute fishies! I have a 55 gallon with 2 fantails, 1 oranda and 1 black moor.

I have two only one in use. I’m cycling a 60 gallon for my goldies. I have three goldies in a 30 gallon. I know it’s bad. I do frequent water changes even tho I have a good filter. One of them was a rescue. They r all going into the 60 in the spring.
The first is my Black Moore Gilly
The second is my fantail PoopyButt(the rescue, also my favorite)
And the last is my oranda Potato
They r all babies right now and they eat... so much.
Also sorry the pictures r bad I just did a water change, they don’t like to sit still, and the tank is grey so it’s only good for housing the fish not for pictures
Wow your first fantail is gorgeous! Do you name your fish? Ik some people don’t but every single one of mine has a name lol

Hi LilBlub! I have Thai Orandas and 1 tiny ryukin in an 80 gallon tub. Here are a couple of em:

Phantom, my little panda oranda.

My darling little Ryukin named Chub. He is a cull but I still love him all the same.

And last but not least, my 2 baby tosakins that are coming this Saturday! I have a 20 gallon bowl set up for them. They have not changed color yet, but they should turn red-white/orange in the next few months. They have perfect conformation as youngsters, and pure Japanese lineage, and I cannot wait to groom them out.

Thank you! She is a very sassy little goldfish.

Tosakins are definitely a bit difficult to keep. They have very specific requirements, many of which are the opposite of typical goldfish care. Just make sure you do the research...many "tosakins" i see for sale online are not real tosakins.

What type of fancy, @Bruxes and Bubbles? I assume a fantail?

I almost forgot to mention my fish’s names! Fantail #1 is Sola (Latin for alone, because she was a very sad little baby fish all alone in a tank when I found her. Now she’s happy and has plenty of buddies!). Fantail #2 is Paprika, oranda is Pumpkin, and black moor is Ebony.

I love fantails. I want to try some more exotic goldfish morphs but I think I will always have at least one fantail in my tank. I started out with three baby fantails (Pudge, Lil Blub, and Sola) in a 10 gallon tank and my fish hobby has blossomed from that .
