I have been slowly getting rid of fish ,but have babies again .The original fish will go over to the other house and Mike can take care of them .The pond there is spring fed and is way bigger with only 6 fish in it now .Took Mike a couple of years to clean it up and get the surrounding area cleaned up .I just can't keep up with this property and the house and all the work .I am not getting any younger
well i am quite pleased about getting a twin tailed fry from my goldfish, ive posted a couple of pics in the pond talk section, really hope it makes it through to adulthood, i will keep that one if it does.
yes it will sissy, but i imagine that if mated with a single tail then fry will probably turn out as single tail, hmmm i dont know for sure, i will just be pleased to have it in my pond, i dont know how common naturally occuring twin tail goldfish are but i imagine many many moons ago this is how fancy tailed breeds first started.
oh well what a couple of days ive had. i had 2 young fish from last years babies in a separate tank all year and i finally decided they looked big enough to go into the main pond with the adult fish, but when i actually put them in they didnt look that big anymore !! infact they looked quite tiny, well they had body length of about 1 inch not including tail, but my main concern was my 14 inch orfe, i was very panicky lol. they kept getting brave and swimming out into the center of the pond and i was nearly having a heart attack. but 48 hours later and they are still there the big orfe itsnt paying any intrest to them so looks like they are going to be fine. yey
They have been spending most of their time in the water lillies, but yesterday the goldies where at it laying eggs again, the little ones didnt know where to put themselves , shame on those goldies engaging in such behaviour infront of minors
well new enlargened pond now nearly finished, the fish are really enjoying the extra space, was gutted to lose my big 16 inch golden orfe, during the move, she would have loved it, i am really pleased i went with a gray coloured liner instead of black, really brightens it up a bit, it has been in for 2 weeks now and starting to get a bit dirty but still looks better than the black. the new pond holds 11 thousand litres.
So far sun and heat have came back and done with my grocery shopping .1 couple that was staying with me from nc found a house here that was foreclosed on .They were renting in North Carolina for years now and never bought .So they have cash to buy a home 2 acres and a 2007 modular home was for sale at 67 thousand but they made a cash offer and just found out it was excepted so they got it for 43 thousand dollars and best it is only about 3 miles from my house and is on Cobbs Knob road .So now we are going to celebrate
well the winds picked up a bit today so i had to get out for a walk with the camera, just thaught i would share a few of my fav shots of the day. wow had to some serious resizing there to upload them photos.
