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 […]

Online forums like Goldfish Keepers can be a great place to network with other goldfish hobbyists and breeders to find some really great fish!  Plus, supporting small hobby breeders also helps keep the hobby vibrant and strong.  I got a group of 7 beautiful Broadtail Moor Goldfish from Amy Shonka and I love them!  Can’t […]

Looking back on past videos I have done, it seems that I always get new goldfish in the fall.  I don’t know why, but there it is!  Three years ago, in 2012, I got Luca who is currently my oldest goldfish.  Click here to watch Luca’s unboxing video.  Two years ago, in 2013, I got […]

Meet Navi (nah-vee), the newest member of the Solid Gold gang!  She is a red/white butterfly telescope from Dandy Orandas and she arrived on Tuesday, November 25th.  Navi arrived in pretty good shape except for a slight break in the leading ray of her dorsal fin.  It probably won’t heal quite right (you’ll always be […]
