It's more like opportunistic. And since I have a rather tough case to kill (having to resort to antibiotic food), I wouldn't want to risk sending anything to you. Especially since you'll have new goldies. Moving is always stressful for fish.

That's great that you found a store with ranchu! I have to drive about an hour to get good goldfish, too. But I think it is well worth the wait.

Irregardless, the thought is appreciated :*

Yep, I think the longest I've had to drive to get fish has been 40 minutes so far. Looks like I'll be breaking my record lol x3

I ended up getting my ranchus a bit earlier than I wanted but I found a place nearby that had really cute ones X)

My tank is set up and cycled already so I went ahead and got them, just need to get some plants going now ^^


Anyways, here they are!

Theyre both so totally cute and inseparable. Shimmy keeps tagging along with Pancake and Pancake keeps trying to ditch him, its very sibling XD

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Oh my gosh that is tiny!!! They are under a year. Probably only a few months old. Their color isn't even done developing yet! You'll have those guys for a long time.
