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 […]

This week the series of video updates about the goldfish in my fish room continues with another new video! Today we’re looking at my group of male butterfly telescopes living in my 75 gallon aquarium. This includes Mordecai, Poe, “no-name” who I’m in need of name suggestions for, Gandalf, and Banjo. I’ve had this aquarium […]

It’s been far too long since I gave you guys an update on my fish, so we’re going to fix that starting this week! This is the first in a series of updates about the goldfish I have in my fish room. Since I have tons of fish now spread out between about 10 tanks, I’m going to […]

It’s been a while since I’ve done a simple video of my goldfish with a fun music background. Here are my three calico butterfly telescopes that I got from Dandy Orandas just over a year ago. I have two males (Bernie & Mugen) and a female (Gwen). The only time they’ve ever spawned for me […]

  Here are my four black butterfly telescope goldfish in their 75 gallon aquarium. The three big ones (Loki, Lana, and Mordecai) are from Dandy Orandas and the little guy (Poe) was bred by me from red/white butterfly telescope parents. These fish spawned for me a few days ago, so I now have a batch […]

As you will probably remember, about a month ago I had the unique privilege of traveling to Dandy Orandas in Michigan to visit, show you guys a video tour of the facility, and even hand-pick my own fish in person! Well, the day we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived… the fish I hand-picked are […]
