    I almost died of cuteness when I saw the first one. He's a short tailed little baby. There are 4 total but these two are my favorites. All girl names as well. Stacee, Tracee, Lacee, and Gaycee... LOL!

    Look what I found... They're tiny Ryukins if ever I've seen any... Super cute. I lost all my calico babies and couldn't pass them up.

    Hello

    Folks, sorry I have not been around lately - I have still been checking in occasionally, but I have no issues with my fish and nothing to suggest on any sickness forum. Time is "running out" here, if you know what I mean. So- busy caring and minding! So pleased you folks are still dropping by! I'll be around more when I have more free time, which I expect soon enough, or a fish problem, which I hope not. I know that sounds the wrong way around maybe, but some things are unavoidable, such as most fish issues, but other things are going to happen! I realise that likely few folks have missed me anyhoo, but again I am happy you folks are still around. Wife was given 2 to 5 months, 5 months ago, and callous though this may sound, I awake every morning, and she is still breathing. C**p. (Like a poo if you are not familiar over there) What a BAS***** I must be!!!! But we can easily assess the quality of life of our dog, cat, goldfish, whatever and decide to euthanize, but not a loved one. That is a bit perplexing. But no quality of life for a human is not relevant apparently???? Barely ambulant -no balance, little ability to communicate and declining comprehension. Add onto that little or no memory, and you may understand "CR**" every morning.? It would be better all round at this point. Hope you are all well! Thanks for stopping by!

    Decapsulated brine shrimp are for fish fry. Adults find the bits too tiny and don't bother trying to eat them. I keep duck weed for mine too. Most of them love it and it is good for them. If you are going away for a few days though, it is better to just fast the fish. No need to feed them.

    AWESOME! I'm gonna be purchasing some duck weed soon again cuz i'm leaving home for a few days and the last time we used duckweed to feed the fish they loved it and they LOVED it! I also have discovered that my fish DO NOT like dried baby brine shrimp :-) i even tried mixing it in with their normal fish pellets i give them, but they did not seem to like it...at least i tried to feed them a new food...but now i have a whole container of baby brine shrimp that i'm not gonna use.. OH WELL...maybe i'll try again in a few days with the baby brine shrimp :-)

    Right? My plants didn't die a horrible death this time. Now I want to see if I can grow some bog plants around my mud pond. Probably not. Probably won't get that lucky. I'm actually going to upgrade that planted tank to a 20 gallon soon. It's way overrun. Here are the little mutt girls from Kentucky Orandas. Standard orange short tailed Ryukin crossed with standard orange Oranda. They remind me of the three Ryukin babies I lost that were named Tangerine, Tangelo, and Citrus. These are all suspected girls... Though I am not sure yet. I named them Lila (LEE-LUH) (small one with tail curl), Lola (most orange one), and Layla (larger one with black). Thrilled with them. If they grow tiny wens, I will die from cuteness.

    People are so scared to do necropsies on their fish, that I have only been able to confirm ONE case of internal tumor. The fish was somewhat floaty, but it was not severe enough for me to be sure if the fish wasn't just an all too common annoying SBD fish. If I recall correctly... one day it just up and died. This was a while ago. The time it would take depends on the fish and possibly the location of the growth. I truly have no idea about a time frame. It may also be fluid retention, egg retention, or maybe even something else. Unfortunately it is impossible to be sure. But I don't think it's mere obesity. Makes no sense for only one fish to be affected so badly if it were mere obesity. Another thing... What variety is the fish?

    Hey! Nice job with the plants!

    I wouldn't be surprised, sadly. If it is a tumor in his belly, what kind of symptoms should I be aware of as it progresses? How long would it take? I've got the tank walls fairly well cleaned. I should be able to get a picture tonight if I remember.

    understandable!!!!! i do plan at some point to post it on my social media for exposure if people have pet goldfish!

    UPDATE--Feb 27, 2019

    On active forums, much like the recent user in the disease thread, forums are still loaded with thin skinned easily offended people who ask for help but don't actually want it etc. I have been trying to help on forums too long to have patience for it at this point, hell I hardly had the patience for it to begin with. So I don't post nearly as much on forums anymore. And for other forums, much like this one... They have been abandoned. Nobody posts much anymore since many have moved on to social media or been run off by poor maintenance of the site. This site has been abandoned by its ADMINS and the members quickly left afterwards. Making a new forum won't do much. Only a few people will even see that you created it unfortunately.

    OK, i couldn't help it i quick created a new forum! I would LOVE to see you all join :-) https://goldfishresource.createaforum.com/index.php

    UPDATE--Feb 27, 2019

    i'd set up a new forum for us... probably on a free site because i just do not have the funding to pay for a site... that way we could keep the fish chat going....

    Pulled mud babies

    It was an experiment. I did not truly expect most of them to survive. I expected maybe 2 to be left. I hoped but you know how I am. 5/7 so far are still alive. The small fancy boy is by himself in a tub. I believe he will survive. He's got fight in him. He's showing breeding stars and eating like a beast. I won't place him back into the mud until I can feed regularly. Still cannot do that yet. Not warm enough. He and the other tiny fancy both came out of the mud extremely weak and near death. I knew they needed food or they would not last much longer. That's why I pulled them out to a warmer holding to try and slowly feed them, but the little one died anyway. He's a handsome blue based young man. If he survives, he will become a favorite like my sweet Shembje was. His name is Booshka, I used to call Shembje that all the time.

    Aww, I'm sorry. That's too bad. Still, one of the fancies made it, which I still think is a big deal since winters can be so rough on them. You're planning on keeping them permanently separated from the other pond still?

    The tiny weak one I was worried about actually did die. I agree that calicos tend to be more frail. I agree also that they are likely not permanently stunted, they will catch up to the orange ones.

    If the other fish are all fine and there's no apparent reason he's so unusually round, it could always be a tumor causing the roundness. They can get huge before they affect the fishes quality of life. That's why I wanted to look.
  20. Alyssa

    Pulled mud babies

    Pretty babiesl You're probably not worried about it, but I doubt they're permanently stunted. Just winter slowed! I wish I had more shubunkin! They're a little more varied and fun than commons/comets. I've only got the one shuby, Pepper, who has quite a bit of blue. Maybe if I'm able to re-home the bulk of my common/comets I'll be able to have more shubies. I've given up trying to keep anything but single tails in the ponds overwinter here in Utah. Won't keep anything less hardy than a fantail or ryukin outside in the spring/summer/fall, either. It's impressive your two fancies survived outside all that time! Especially being calico, which has always seemed to correlate to greater frailness in fish in my experience, though that could just be coincidence.

    I'm irritatingly slow getting pictures. This is because my tank wall is embedded with this REALLY difficult to scrub away algae. The tank is big, so fishing the Lil dude out to take photos elsewhere is also a pain. Basically, his body is stretched out so that you can see skin between his scales. They're not standing on end like dropsy, and the scales themselves aren't the hard lumpy pearlscales. He's just a round-bodied chonker. He also has some minor swim bladder issues where he just seems a little poor at balancing and staying upright. He looks "tilted" a lot.

    I looked up fat goldfish. All that comes up are pearlscales, fish with dropsy, or fancy goldfish in general

    Do you have any photos of them? I would love to see some adults. I also have these 3 new babies bred from a friend who just started up her program called Kentucky Orandas. Aren't they cute? They're Ryukin/Oranda hybrids. Lila (LEE-LUH) small one with curled tail, Lola most orange one, and Layla bigger one with black... are their names. 10 days into quarantine.

    I picked up a couple blue based shubunkins last year, they are really gorgeous fish and they're some of my favorites!
  25. myrasosweet

    I think so too. I love blue and blue based fish. I think they're really pretty. Blueberry I hope gets deeper blue and grows to about the size of Shrimp this summer. She would be SO pretty if she did.

    Ok, well they are cool!
