What type of fancy goldfish will you be getting again?
Well, I'm not sure yet. I've found that my options are limited where I live (though a new fish store just moved in a couple days ago that I have yet to check out)
I might order one online if I get this job I'm hoping for, otherwise, my budget won't allow for that.
Anyway, i've mostly ruled out Orandas, pearlscales, ranchus and bubble-eyes, because I'm not a fan of how they look.
I like shubunkins a lot, but I think I've ruled them out since they seem a little bit larger and it sounds as if it is difficult to keep many of the other 'fatter' fancies with them.
I guess of varieties that I am likely to be able to find, I most like Ryukins and Moors. I definitely plan to get at least one Moor.
I also just picked up a teeney-tiny fantail from walmart. I don't know why, but he really struck me out of all the other ones they had.
He has a bit of Ich and is currently living in a tiny, empty hex tank while he's "treat" (primarily with clean water).
Once I'm sure he's well, he'll go in the 30 gallon and I'll get him a friend.
