I've always loved and kept fish but just recently I've discovered goldfish keeping! I had thought that goldfish were super not exciting and that they were stayed tiny and all sorts of bad stuff. But then I joined a goldfish forum and oh man, did I learn stuff. haha

So two weeks ago I got my first goldie. His name is S.E.F., which stands for Special Ed Fish becuase he only has one eye. Haha

This is S.E.F.:





NO EYE!!! :shock:



Then I got two more yesterday, S.E.F. is so awesome that I had to get more. haha Their names are D.F. (Differently-gifted fish, she loves bubbles, ALOT) and B.F. (Brain Fish, he looks like he has a brain on his head).

D.F. is way more of a camera hog than B.F. so there're more pictures of her. haha

D.F.!






Fish butt! Haha



B.F.!






Anybody else like/have goldfish? =D

Sunny- Hahahahaha I can totally envision that. Goldies are hilarious. I caught myself talking to S.E.F. like he was a dog last night...then I realized that even though he acts like a dog, he is not, in fact, a dog. Lol!

Annalover- Gill is adorable! I love his black fin tips. Yay for survivors! o_O
My camera has flashed at my fish multiple times and none of them are dead yet. =) No worries.


I'm SUPER excited for this next week. I bought them a thirty gallon tank (from goodwill, for $20, o_O ) and S.E.F.'ll be moving in as soon as the filter I bought on ebay comes. The other ones will be moving in as soon as they are done with quaratine in 4 weeks. So excited!

I've had fish in the past, they're so fun! I had Betas', and different sized Goldies. Unfortunately, my Beta (Addien [[Add-ee-in], all white with one gray dot) died, and I was so upset. Stopped fish keeping after that. He lived about a year, and was such a good pet as far as fish go. lol.

I'm housing a 7" comet. I rescued him from some idiot that had him in a bowl O_O I have no idea how the guy survived, but his name is Biggie Smalls. Totally dropped his bowl too and he was all "OMGZ!!1"

But he's cool now. Residing in a tank at 75 degress with cichlids. I hate keeping him in with tropicals, but no one's wanted him and I can't make a pond for him right now. Come this spring? Biggie Smalls is gonna get a pimped out pond fo'sho.
