Update Time!



I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve updated this goldfish blog!  In the last couple months I moved to a new house and got a doberman puppy, so things have been a bit hectic and I haven’t been able to spend much time on my goldfish hobby.

Before the move, I had a sudden outbreak of something either parasitic or bacterial (never found out what it was) in my tank, and sadly I had a few fish losses.  I am now down to only two fish, Clover the ryukin and Callisto the broadtail.  On the bright side, having just two fish made transporting them to my new house easier, and it certainly makes caring for them easier now that I also have an energetic puppy to deal with.  I will probably get more fish sometime in the future, but for now I’m happy with just the two I have.  They have plenty of space all to themselves in my 75 gallon tank! 



Here are some photos of them from today.

Clover has developed some orange color at the top of his dorsal fin.



~dancing~  Or so it would seem!



Ever so photogenic.

Callisto was not in a cooperative mood for photos (as usual!), so just one of her.



The duo together.

 And here’s a video of them as well!
