Well, I am hoping to purchase some Black Moors soon as I understand they are very easy keepers and would look good also with the two Calico Fantails. Just a quick thought though.....I am a knowledgeable Betta Splendens breeder and one should NEVER, EVER keep Bettas and Goldfish together. For one, a Betta is a tropical and Goldfish a coldwater. The second thing is that Goldfish are much to aggressive to be housed with Bettas simply because Goldfish are pigs and eat everything in sight and as a result, are bullies, esp. towards smaller fish, also if your'e able to keep them together, it means you tank arrangements are MUCH TOO cold for Bettas....Bettas are actually quite unhappy if kept under 70 degrees F.

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.

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 just got two Moors today. I named the one "Fools Gold" because he has a scar on his side and you can see a gold color underneath. The second I named "Road Rage" because he goes crazy around the tank and reminds me of my husband when hes driving. They are in a tank with an upside down catfish named "Dude". They are really quite neat!!

I own a Shubunkin named Archer (for Capt Archer, Enterprise...Love Scott Bakula!!!!), and he's an awesome fish, in addition to my 13 other lionheads, ryukins,red cap, and assorted feeders I saved. He's got a red mask over his face, and he's got lots of blue and red. Sharp looking fish. Easy keeper. Totally comical. Thinking of getting a few more. Two thumbs up!

I got a black moor and a Speckled moor on May 7th. I love them both! They're hilarious! the black ones name is bubba. He swims around and sticks his lips out of the water it's so funny! The other one's name is shannon. She's more mellow. The other day she would lay on the gravel for 5 min and then swim to the other side and lay there for 5 min. she did that for like 45 min then she swam aroud some more. their great fun and easy to take care of!

I've had a red capped oranda for almost 8 months now. Her name is Livingston and she is gorgeous. I think she's about to lay eggs again because she's getting fatter every day. I personally have found her really easy to take care of - I'm currently in University and travel back and forth quite often and she always handles the trips quite well. I'd love to get more, but I'll need to get a bigger tank first!
