Today’s unboxing is a big deal for me because not only are these are the first new goldfish I’ve gotten in 6 months, but they’re the first new goldfish I’ve had shipped to me from Dandy Orandas in well over a year! It feels like things are finally settling back into a normal after the […]

My brother flew down from Minnesota to visit me last week and I showed him around the fish room to let him feed a few of my pets! You’ll see Rune and Sylvia the leopard geckos, my poison dart frogs, my adorable goldfish, and Neptune the betta fish. Also, get a sneak peek of the […]

Yay vlogmas! 😀 Follow me around today as I do my daily pet care routine, starting with giving Henry the rabbit his medication, feeding everyone, and setting up a new culture of fruit flies for my dart frogs to eat. Thanks for stopping by and Stay Gold!    

You guys, I have a confession. Remember last week when I visited Josh’s fish room and told you guys he was selling all his calico butterfly telescopes? Yeah… I bought some. 😛 Look at how gorgeous they are; how could I possibly resist? In this video you will see some “secret” footage from Josh’s fish […]

Come along with me as I visit Joshua McWilliams’ outdoor goldfish room full of great ryukins, orandas, ranchus, pearlscales, butterfly telescopes, and so much more. You may know Josh as Waterpigs USA on Instagram; he’s always sharing pictures of his beautiful fish and it was a joy to be able to hang out with him […]

WOW! There were so many BIG, beautiful, show-quality fish competing in the show and available for sale from the vendors at the first West Coast Goldfish Palooza event in San Jose, California! Really nice ranchu, oranda, ryukin, butterfly telescopes, and more everywhere you turned. The educational talks were invaluable and we need more of that […]

It happened! After more than a year, I finally have a new batch  of goldfish fry to raise and groom to perfection. These red and white butterfly telescope goldfish fry are from Lincoln, a female butterfly telescope goldfish that I bred a few years ago. Come hang out with me around the fish room while […]

Today’s update video on my goldfish features the “keepers” from my most recent batch of goldfish babies that I bred. I had two groups of babies that were spawned almost a year ago. The first was a group spawn from my red and white butterfly telescopes with Sophie being the mother. I don’t know which of my males […]

I got a new butterfly telescope goldfish from Dandy Orandas four weeks ago. I always peruse the weekly auction just looking to see if there’s anything that catches my eye that I just “have to have”. What I look for in the ideal butterfly telescope is a nice tail that has a good horizontal spread […]

Here it is! The fourth in a series of video updates about the goldfish I have in my fish room, this week’s video focuses on my group of five female butterfly telescope goldfish that live in one of my 90 gallon Intex wading pools in my fish room. At about 3.5 years old, Sophie is […]
