I have two fantails named Avery and Goliath. They are my lovers. I think Avery has a problem with his swim bladder because sometimes he floats around on the top and has trouble swimming. He's a trooper though. Love them.

I got 2 fannys, named Smooches and Splash the second. Smooches got his name for the fact that he loves to "kiss" the top of the water. At night or when it's quiet you can hear him making smoochie noises. Splash was named after my first regular goldie.
But Splash died a while after I got him. So Smooch got really upset. I'm thinking of getting him a small fishy companion.
Splash was solid white and Smoochi is a funny mix of white and orange. I don't know how to tell if he is male or female but I think "she" is about to spawn.
Smoochi is really cute! Luv him!

I have just found a new interest in looking after fish. My first two fish are a white fantail with an orange spot on the head and the other is white with an orange back. I've named them SONNY and CHER.

I just got two fantail goldfish. Their names are Phil COllins, and Harold. I'm keeping both of them in a 4L tank but I don't think that's big enough, so I think I'll get a bigger tank. They're so cute, and getting used to living in their new home so quickly. Harold is white with an orange spot on his head, and Phil Collins is orange with a white tummy. =D
I loves my goldfishies.

I have three fantail goldfishes and 1 weather loach. I feed them twice a day at 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. I always show them the fish food can and they get happy. I taught the biggest one (it is about 3 inches long) a trick with it. I hold a flake on top of the water and he jumps out of the water and gets it. When I feed them they are always at the top of the aquarium. The small and medium size goldfish are changing colors. The small one is turning red and the medium one is turning white. The weather loach always steals food from the goldfishes mouths.

I have one exotic named "Jessie" and one plecostomus "Heckle". They are 2.5 yrs. old now. They play tag all day long and dig in the stones at night. Sometimes the pleco will pick up a stone swim over the top of the air skeleton and bomb it with the stone, causing it to fall over. Jessie has now caught on to the game and is doing the same things Heckle does. These breeds of fish are very intelligent.
