Hey guys! In today’s video, watch as I bring my new fish home from the 2018 Central Florida Koi & Goldfish Show and set them up in their quarantine tanks. It won’t be long now until I can add the wakins and watonai to my 350 gallon backyard pond and little Denzel the Thai black […]

It’s time for another update on the progress of the fish room rebuild! This video focuses on my water management strategy for the fish room. With over 3,000 gallons of aquariums going in this room, I’ll need systems in place to quickly and easily change water and maintain my tanks. Watch the video to find […]

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 […]

I realized that you guys haven’t had an update on my new discus in three months… can that possibly be right?! WOW, time flies! In this video, you’ll find out how I overcame their initial shyness, what changes I have made to the tank, what their favorite food is, and what new fish I have […]

It’s finally time for the update on my new 90 gallon aquarium that you’ve all been waiting for! Today I’ll reveal what fish I’m putting in my new tank. You guys have been following along in the setup of this tank from the very beginning, from my initial visit to my local fish store in […]

I went to the 2017 Central Florida Koi & Goldfish Show (CFKGS) in Orlando over the weekend and came home with two new goldfish from Southwest Koi & Goldfish! What do you think of my two new Thai black orandas? I’m so excited to finally (after 7 years of goldfish-keeping) add my first orandas to […]

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 […]

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 […]

In addition to keeping and breeding butterfly telescope goldfish, which will always be my first loves, I’m hoping to expand into some other varieties that interest me as well. Watonai are one of those varieties! Watonai have elongated, slim bodies similar to a comet or common goldfish, but they have a long double tail. I […]

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 […]
