Are These Even the Same Fish? + Butterflies for Sale Friday

Who are those fish and what have they done with Sophie and Clyde?!  Seriously though, check out the major color change that Sophie and Clyde have undergone!  This was a long time coming.  As many of you probably know, there are no “true” panda goldfish.  Goldfish that are black and white (called panda) are eventually…

Ghost Bristols Six Months Later

Ghost Bristols Six Months Later

I’ve officially had my ghost bristol trio for 6 months now!  They were about 8 months old when I got them, so they’re a little over 1 year old now.  Poltergeist is male, Wraith is female, and I believe Haunt is also female.  Poltergeist and Wraith have spawned several times while Haunt just hangs around…

Food-related Color Change

Food-related Color Change

I figured that with the high algae content in the Repashy Soilent Green food, Clover might become a little more yellow.  And he did!  I prefer him to be a nice clean, brilliant white color, but I don’t dislike the yellow enough to stop using this gel food.  Here’s the before and after, so you…

Once Upon a Water Change…

Once Upon a Water Change…

I tested the parameters beforehand.  Nitrates were at ten, and I don’t like them getting any higher than that, so it was time for a water change! Here at our new house, the water pressure from the sink is really good.  I’m thankful for that because it makes the water changes go faster, but at…

A Year of Growth

A Year of Growth

A year ago, I purchased a tiny white/red ryukin as somewhat of an “afterthought”.  I was buying a large butterfly online, and I wanted a second fish to make shipping worthwhile.  Also, I wanted a small ryukin to provide company for a little fantail I was keeping in a tank alone at the time.  So,…
