Nice tank and cute fishes you have there. I was having pleco sucking on my goldfishes and ranchu before, thus, I remove him from the tank without thinking twice, and put him into a plastic guppy tank and since then he just can't stop growing, heard they can grow up to 1 feet long!
Though I have some casualties before, now all have been cured and only left 4 of them inside the tank.
Meanwhile I'm raising the fries (crossed between ryukin and oranda, and another not sure who's the father with the mother oranda, yeah second spawn) and enjoying it.
I personally go for bare tank instead of planted tank (though I personally think that a planted tank would look much better and attractive), but even with bare tank I enjoy my fishes swimming around healthily and happily.
They're having internal infections, which caused 2 of my beloved black oranges, 1 gold oranda, and 2 juvenile black ranchu. Red-white Thai Ranchu managed to survive through the wipe out.
Even tried my hands on culled TVR, as heard that if one can managed TVR well, other goldfishes would not cause any problem for the hobbyist.
I'm just amazed by how great you guys been maintaining your beautiful tanks and fishes there!
