Today’s video is a look at how my new goldfish are doing and some advice on how to diagnose and treat your fish when you notice problems during quarantine. Hopefully seeing my process of diagnosing and treating an opportunistic bacterial infection is helpful for you in dealing with your own fish. The original goldie gang […]

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 […]

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 I’m continuing the series of update videos about all the goldfish in my fish room with a video about my lovely little group of four jikins. The jikin goldfish is a Japanese goldfish variety that is considered quite rare. Their most defining feature is their tail fin, which has been described as a […]

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 […]

I have a confession. I’ve been secretly coveting Jikin goldfish for a while now, and Dandy Orandas has had many very nice ones available on their auctions lately. If you’re not familiar with jikins, The Goldfish Council has a good article about the variety here. I decided that if one came along that really caught […]

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 […]
