Hi guys,

This is Jenson from Singapore, used to keep tropical fishes before, but stop that after going to tertiary studies.

Now start keeping goldfishes again due to my son who loves fish so much that we've decided to keep fish again! So tried to pick up fish keeping again and try to keep the fish beautiful and healthy as my family is now enjoying the fishes in the 30L mini aquarium.

It's the Classica Paradom Aquarium XL330 from a local fish shop. Quite nice and easy to maintain, but just realised, again, even for Goldfish, it's not an easy tasks to keep them alive and healthy, while making sure the water quality maintenance is nicely done!

Nice to see you guys!

Cheers,
Jenson

Hi Uncle Easy,

Thanks for the warmest welcome! You always make your own gel food for your goldfishes?

I read a lot about home made gel food but have never find a great recipe and time to make some for my fishes though.

Great to have it done and delivered! But it would be a long journey! All the way from your place to Singapore!?!

Just gotten a TVR cull to try and experience it, from an experienced hobbyist which he doesn't mind to let me try to explore and learn from keeping TVR cull.

Precious only 1 BBR cull.

Due to my careless mistakes, 5 of my fishes wiped out, only left 4, they are 1 Oranda, 1 Ryukin, 1 Lionhead, and 1 Thai Ranchu.

Now raising the 2 batches of fries from the recent spawns using hatched brine shrimp eggs, also FOC from the hobbyist to let me learn.

Cheers,
Jenson

No problem, so far I've only been feeding them SSS sinking pellets, some bros advised me to feed them some frozen blood worm every day too.

In Singapore, majority of us are staying in government subsidised apartment, while those more affluent can afford to buy landed property, which usually costs a few millions and above to posses it.

Thus, not really possible for us to have the luxury to keep outdoor fishes. I often heard that outdoor setup is the best for goldfishes and ranchus.
