Show and Tell: Goldfish Photos
 
Folks, I think it's time we have a thread just for goldfish photos only.;-) I'll give a start.

My fantails under quarantine at the moment.

Here's Felix. He's 4 inches I think excluding the tail which is 2 inches.

Here's Alessandra. She's much bigger and is ripe with eggs currently.

More goldfish coming as soon as I hoard the prettiest ones and try renovating a new pond.:lol:

Felix's tubercles with flash. He's a pain in the butt to get pics of with his amorous attitude to Alessandra while attempting to help someone distinguish their sexes when in spawning mode.http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums...lies/irked.gif

Beautiful fish, Lupin. I'm in the process of doing a pond myself and have ruled out Koi and am opting for goldies. Seeing your photos confirmed that I made the right decision as far as my pond stocking! :-)

You're making me more excited!
I think I just secured a 55 gallon tank. The only problem is that I don't know if it will fit in my car and it already comes with some tropical fish. Hopefully I can rehome them, though.
That or hopefully they're really old. Haha.
Otherwise I could have a 20 some year wait before I can get goldfish.

Haha! Ditch the tropicals and get the goldies, Katie. They're fascinating honestly and it has been a long time since I kept about 6 strains.:-?

Lupes, have you given up on loaches (tropicals) in favor of goldies? :shock:

No, I haven't, sweetie. All my loaches are still with me and I have no plans selling them either. I had someone pester me to sell all my yoyo loaches. I put my foot down and said I have no plans to do that.;-)

There will be a new pond in due time (possibly this month) which will house my goldfish and some new dojo loaches. I lost my last dojo loach to canas.:cry:
