I think I’m pretty excited about this doodle. I can’t believe how late it is already. I’d like to start painting it.

It looks awesome :)

Anonymous asked: Hi, I bought a fish from my local pet shop and they sold him to me as an oranda, after checking online I realised he isn't. He has no dorsal and an egg shaped body, he's quite small too, only a few centimetres big now, he's orange and white with no crown. Do you know what he would be?

That would be a ranchu :)

That reminds me of one time when I bought a fantail that was mostly white with a red patch on her head.  She was still quite small but had zero headgrowth and I knew it was a fantail, not an oranda.  The clerk insisted she was an oranda, just “not a very pretty one.”  I was like, “Really?  Now you’re insulting my new baby?”  I bought her anyway even at the oranda price, because I really wanted that particular fish, but what a clueless clerk…yeesh.

Yeah, lots of fish are labeled wrong in pet stores in my experience. I remember calling a pet store, asking which kind of goldfish they had, but they had no clue.

I was checking out some of my older fish pictures, and found this. Watermelon (the orange ryukin) had grown so much! And my old tank looked so nice in the beginning.. sigh. 

Watermelon was such a beautiful fish. Too bad I think that ryukins need more swimming space than the tank I have now :/ Otherwise I’d get another.. haha. 

Anonymous asked: If I feed my goldfish colour enhancing pellets will it change colour? Also I've read spirulina flakes will make them change. I feed the colour enhancing ones to my fancies and my common guys get normal pellets, I have a few silverish feeders in there, I love them and I like their current colour but I'm just wondering if it could be changed or something, I don't know, it'd be cool. I take goldfish care seriously, I promise, I love my fish but I don't know, I hate how everyone calls them ugly :(

Colour enhancing pellets will stimulate colour changing in goldies! :) I’m not sure about spirulina flakes though, but from what I’ve read they also promote colour changing. But colour changing depends on the genes too! So it’s different for every fish.

And it’s great that you take their care so seriously! :) There are lots of goldfish lovers out there, so don’t worry.

2 Comet goldies lookin’ for a home

kai-ni:

Okay so. Fish community halp. I currently have with me two comet goldfish, and I know darned well I can’t care for them in the long term. They’re pond fish.

I do not have a pond.

The tank they’re in right now is too small, and I know it, but they were rescues (from bowls, people who couldn’t care for them properly. It was during a thing where the campus was giving out goldfish as prizes I - yea long story) And the tank is double filtered and their parms are always perfect, so it’s handling the bioload fine. They are still quite small, around 3 inches I’d say (but they never stop moving so I don’t know. XD)

Anyway I’ve been trying to re-home them but finding good pond owners is like finding Jimmy Hoffa’s briefcase. If I hear ‘we just buy new ones every summer’ one more time I’ll possibly scream and cry.

So fish community, I need a lil help. Should I post an ad on craigslist? I’m hesitant to do this because…

Well I don’t have a car so I can’t bring them to you, and I’m not comfortable shipping them because I have no experience with that. (and no money for that either) so?

So basically I need to find someone willing to go out of their way and come to me to adopt two comet goldfish that aren’t spectacular and really aren’t much bigger than the ones you can buy at the pet store for like 50 cents.

Do you see my problem? I just don’t know what to do with them! this has been killing me; stunting will soon become a problem with them if I keep them much longer… but taking them back to the pet store is a death sentence and I just can’t find anyone to take them who I KNOW will love them and care for them.

They’re really sweet fish, I do love them too and I want what is best for them. They’re semi-trained, they’re comfortable around my hand and will eat from it. They’re just really sweet.

——SO FISH COMMUNITY. Does anyone live near Kansas City or Saint Joseph Missouri and has the resources and is willing to take in two comet goldies? I doubt it but I’m allowed to try ahaha. Contact me at kainifiesta@live.com, tumblr’s messaging system sucks.——

If anyone out of state is legitimately interested maybe you could walk me through how to ship them? Still not sure I’m comfortable doing that…

And even if you’re not interested suggestions are welcome. I think if I end up keeping them over the summer I’ll get them a big sterilite tub. But it’s not something I can keep up with because I can’t take that to college so. no win for me. They need a new home.

Saw this little cutie at the store today! They have a new supplier and the fish look so much healthier. Bigger and more lively it’s fantastic! They’ve also reduced the amount of fish they keep in the tank and introduced little domino fish.
