New Goldfish should be here tomorrow!

BabsandLoon

I am so excited! This is my first purchase from Goldfish Island and my first time purchasing a fish online snd having it shipped.

He should arrive tomorrow! I have the QT tank up and ready. I took the day off so I can be here when he arrives.

And by the time he is ready to be added in with the others the new 125 g should be here and I’ll be able to add everyone at once.

Awesome! Congrats. I love goldfish island. They're one of my LFS about 20 min away. Quality fish (all imported though, so exercise proper measures there) and the owner is a cool guy. Most of his fish come from China if I recall correctly, the thai ones are usually advertised as such

Make sure you take extra care acclimating that fish. Thai lines are notoriously more prone to illness, even when compared to other fish imported from southeast Asia. They're beautiful and worth it. But you need to watch that fish like a hawk and be prepared to put some work in treating illnesses early in the process.

I didn’t know that about the Thai lines. I’m glad I posted on here so now I know to keep a close eye on him.

I have the QT tank set up and running and took tomorrow off so I can take my time acclimating him and make sure I do it properly.

Not the best pictures since I am trying not to stress him out but he is here!!!

He arrived safe and sound and really active. He is a sassy little thing!

I floated his bag for about 30 minutes and and then slowly over the course of a couple hours added water from the tank to his bag. Finally I let him go in the QT tank.

So far so good!
