I'm new to the world of Shubunkin's, but am already a fan. Wish I'd had these as a kid. We have five: Marilyn the prettiest who's mostly white with red and grey, Charlie who's more orange than any other colour, Fred who always looks grumpy, Doris who's named so for no other reason than lack of imagination, and Betty. Bossy Betty Blue runs the roost & I think she's a Bristol, as her tail's rounder than the others. I agree with previous comments, they're very acrobatic swimmers and great fun to watch. I love 'em.

What I thought was a peaceful fish was swimming around my tank yesterday with a little rummy-nosed tetra in his mouth!!! These fish are great, and fast!!! and remember to keep a lid on thier tank otherwise you will find out how high they can jump! Im hoping the little fish incident was a one off!

My male flame honey gourami would pick on my female dwarf, so I had to move her to a ten gallon. HE gets along with the female honey gourami and he even leaves the guppies alone.

My Jack Dempsey was one of my favorite fish. It was dark all the time had lot's of shiny blue scales across it's body, face, and fins and had a bit of red on the tip of it's dorsal fin. It just looks awesome when flaring against my other cichlids. A very tough and cool fish!

Hello everyone in the aquarium hobby business. I'm a proud owner of a 200 gallon Oceanic Show tank will the following fishes: four blood parrots, two silver arowanas, three silver scats, two silver dollars, three clown loach, five red tail sharks, three rainbow sharks, opaline gourami, golden gourami and a plecostamus. Everybody is approximately the same sizes except for the plecostamus and silver arowanas. The water chemistry is as follows: pH-7.4, nitrite-0, ammonia-0, nitrate-10. Feeding includes freeze-dried blood worms, Omega One super color floating pellets, and on occasion as a treat frozen Hikari blood worms. Water changes are accomplished by doing a twenty-five to thirty percent of water every month. Filtration Emperor 400, four Ehiem 2217 in line, four 2215 in line, 3 Maxi-Jet 1200 and 3 Maxi-Jet 1000 for circulation. Additionally using Tetratec DW96-2 to run a 48 inch. bubble wand. Temperature is set at 82 degrees farenheit. For lighting I used four 10,000K and two 50/50 bulbs. Decorations consist of clay pots, African drift wood anchored down by slate, tall long artificial plants, and many hiding places too. I hope you enjoy reading this.

I have two common goldfish and one comet. I saved them from being a gourmet dinner, LOL. I enjoy watching them, they are great pets. They are pretty easy to care for, cheap, and usually are sold for feeder fish. but I think the common goldfish is one of the finest goldfish. I like your website it has great facts about goldfish and has great picures.=)

I have two common goldfish and a comet. I had them now for a couple of months now. They live in a 36 gallon tank with eclipse filter the are very happy. I always hate looking at goldfish when they get dumped into a small bowl. Most people think that goldfish are boring but they make great pets for kids and adults. Your website has great facts and pictures. Goldfish make a great pet for many reasons one of them are they do not reguire a lot of care.

I recently took in 3 young common/comet goldfish from being used as human consumption at a University in my area. During the short period I had them-I grew very attached to all 3. My betta chased them around a bit, but they all got along. I did just release them into a home-made pond at my Aunts house, so they can grow up to be big like their new friends in the pond. Although, I do think my betta is a tad bit lonely now. Anyway, if I ever get the chance again to save/rescue/adopt some goldfish....I would do it all over again. Thanks to Shellie who actually was the one who took the 3 fish out of the horrible enviroment.

I have a silver dollar fish that is 16 years old! he has jumped out of the tank a few times. in fact, 1 time he jumped out and i didn't notice it. I had fallen asleep and was awoken by this slapping sound. it was the sound of the silver dollar fish on the bare floor behind the tank. I picked him up and he has a dust/cat-hair sweater on his body. so, i picked the hair off and plopped him back in the tank. that was about 6 years ago. I am thinking he might be dying now though, he is laying flat on the bottom of the tank, although, he seems more lively today. I did a water change, and i think the tank might have been too warm (83 degrees)
