I took a video of my green sun fish eating crickets, and of him just swimming around. the fourth cricket was 1 too much, he didn't swallow it for 20 minutes because he had no room in his stomach.

I'm sorry about your fish :(

Shipping is hard on the fish, but sometimes if you wait to long they are all picked over. Whenever I bought fish I would buy them the day after they came in the evening. That usually gives enough time for any fish that won't make it to die off. When I had my African butterfly I actually took him home in his shipment bag lol

I can hear your birdy Copper. My super pug heard your birdy too, she immediately started running around looking for my BFF's bird. She has a cockatiel, is that what yours is?

Yup, that's actually my friends bird that I'm training for them though lol. His name is Dante, I found him and rescued him but couldn't keep him so he lives with one of my BFF's.

My birdie is Rosie, she's a galah cockatoo.

One year later, the koi and the comet goldfish after today's big pond cleaning.

The one who started it all, Koichiro. He's grown to roughly 9-10" since I got him Halloween 2011. Notice that the orange blotch on his nose, the blotch that made me fall for him, has faded.

I then got Saiyo the sarassa comet goldfish on Valentine's, 2012. She's only 7-8" and hasn't grown much, which is a bit concerning.

Finally, around May 2012, I got Tanko from Petsmart. He is the biggest at 10-11" or so.

Considering that for much of the year, I battled nitrates as high as 80ppm and over in their pond, they look quite healthy. Koichiro, being a butterfly koi, has a bit of damage to his dorsal and his tail but it's clean and no signs of infection.

What kind of fish can be tank mates with a goldfish? If any? I'm jwin...I don't mean for my future bubble eyes I mean. (:

Also, are there any gold fish forums that you guys know about? Can someone PM me the name of one?

Fishy, they were all around 3-4" when I got them. I was surprised that Tanko grew the most. Maybe all that extra white adds to it but he looked like a giant compared to the others.

Goldfish experts, is a comet goldfish supposed to look kinda of . . . yellow? I am a bit concerned for Saiyo. Both Koichiro and Tanko have such nice white scales but Saiyo is kind of off-white/yellowish.

Thanks, Izzy. :) They really owe you a lot of thanks since you helped me set their home up.
