After 6 months of long search for a veiltail I've finally got myself one, it was mixed in along with the fancy goldfish. It is an oranda veiltail, but I still love it. (too bad it just got infested with ick)

Where can I buy veiltails? I need them soo bad, I have two amazing veiltail albino red oscars. I'm a collector of rare red/bloddy/ super red oscars. I'm building a koi pond and I wanan breed them, but they eat the koi eggs so I'll have to add them later in the year, but I wanna add veiltails instead of just reg goldies, any help on where I can buy them?

    Try asking your local fish store to special order them for you, or you can try online... sometimes they are available. You could also contact goldfish breeder clubs. Good luck:)

    Sounds like it may have ich.  Set up a hospital tank if possible and treat.  Also do a good clean on the tank it is housed in and wash everything and medicate to prevent the spread.

    I think you are right about ich, i did a little research and the symptoms match Thank yu so much for replying and the help I hope my little guy makes it :)
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-10-12
    Your welcome! Ich is very treatable and you caught it very early if it is only on fins and head, so recovery should not be an issue.
  • tiny le - 2012-10-12
    Well that's good news, I hope he'll be fine and back to his normal self. Thank you so much again :)

Is it okay to put 9 shubunkin and 4 danio in a 30 gal tank??

    Tank is way to small. Shubunkins will get large.  Also not a good mix with danios.
  • Roland Tan Sabañico - 2013-01-12
    Ok. What will happen if I mix Shubunkin with Danio? Actually I have 2 aquariums, the other one is full of guppies. Sorry for the late reply :)
  • Jeremy Roche - 2013-01-12
    The Shubunkin will more then likely start attacking the danios.  They also produce a large amount of ammonia make the condition hard for the danios to handle.  Goldfish are best to keep with goldfish.

    ok. Thanks :)

recently my cousin gave me an oranda goldfish about 3' long, its flowing fins and tails all being nipped short by a parrot fish and an oscar,(i was mad when i heard that he had kept the poor goldfish with those totally incompatible fish,but the damage was already done!). now it has minimum fins, though it can swim about quite well. it has become friendly with my other goldfishes as well. i feed them flake foods,frozen blood worms and dried tube worms .my question is will its tail and fins grow back? it was originally a cross breed of veiltail and oranda and it had a beautiful flowing tail.

    The tail fin should grow back, as long as the caudal peduncle (tail base) has not been damaged. It may not be as decorative as it was before however, you'll have to wait and see on that.

    Could be constipated.  Try some epsom salt and frozen peas.

I just bought a large oranda, I think he is about 2 years or older. He is about 5.5 inches and has a large wen. His wen covers his eyes and as much food as I have givin him I am concerned he isn't able to see the food and isn't eating. Any suggestions ? I'm using goldfish flakes. -thanks! :)

    What size tank? Filtration?  You may want to have the water tested, a local pet shop will normally do it for you if a water sample if brought in.  Was the tank cycled before adding the fish?  Air stone in tank?
