I am sooo excited about the fish I got today! I didn't wanna "spam" the show off your tank thread so decided to start my own.

First I got 2 Calico Ryukins and 1 Orange Fantail Goldfish for my 36 gal. These are seriously the prettiest fish I've seen in the stores since I started looking at Goldfish months ago. I already love them! Hopefully they'll be with me for many, many years.

First the tank stats. 36 gal bowfront. 2 Marineland Penguin Bio-Wheel 200 filters.
Anacharis, Java Ferns and fake silk plants.

One of the has a slightly deformed tail, but as long as he/ she can swim well I don't care.

Looks great! I really think lambchops are very underrated fish!

I've seen this tank before, and I'm just as in love with the aquascape as I was the first time I saw it. Love the golds! The cories are super cute too.

Guess you like corydoras a lot?
What ever made you think that??? lol

Thank you! I'm so stinkin excited about the Goldfish! I really haven't seen any that pretty ever that I can remember. I think I got lucky this time.

All very nice!
Love the corys and mystery snails.
Thank you! I just love everyone that I got today and had before. It's so exciting to finally be getting all of the fish and the tanks where I want them!
The Mystery's were a total score IMO. I traded my 5 False Julii Corydoras for them. I needed to rehome them since they weren't temp compatible with any of my other fish and I found a lady who wanted to do a trade so I got the 7 Purple Mystery Snails which I love and she got the False Julii's which loved and they get to go to a 75 gal. tank with other False Julii's Win win!

Some of the Mystery Snails aren't very purple, but hopefully I'll get some babies and they'll be more purple and I can keep working with those.

That's it. I give up. I think I am going to have to keep a fancy goldie now. My 8 year old son wants a black moor and I think I may just indulge him.

I have already promised my 10 yo daughter that she can have a tank in her bedroom. I'm thinking a 38 gallon, but she may want an angelfish. So maybe a 55? Maybe a 38 for the goldie. My wife is going to freak out with the MTS, but it's going to be me doing all the maintanence...

Sorry to be a bad influence. lol

I'm all for keeping Fancy Goldfish, go for it! But get him 2. They like company and 2 will be just fine in a 38. Honestly they are my favorite fish out of everyone. So much Personality and so sweet!

Just remind her it's for the kids. I think she'll get on board.

Can't help much on the Angels, but I've seen a lot of people keep them in 46 gal bowfronts so that could be an option.
