    really like that fish, nice hump, you are doing a good job of grooming the fish. Where did you purchase it

    His name is Ryu, unfortunately I'm looking at euthanising him though, he's gotten a taste for my Ranchu's wen and that Ranchu wasn't cheap.

    I don't know anyone near me who would be willing to take care of him the way he should be taken care of. I certainly don't know someone who is willing to have only him in a tank. I don't want someone to take him only to end up giving him away again, I know it sounds bad but I'd rather euthanize him and know he had a good life and was goven multiple chances when he was with me than to risk giving him away and not knowing what happens to him.

    can't try a tank divider?
    or post up in the members for sale section

    he's a lovely looking fish i'm sure someone would be willing.

    Maileen, are you coming to the goldfish show in August? I will give (her, I think) a home in my 110 gallon stock tank with my breeders. S/he is pretty nice..

    I don't know yet, but thank you for your offer! For the time being Ryu is in a flating basket inside the tank.
