      New Arrivals

      Hi all!
      Just thought I'd try and keep a log of how my first Goshiki's do from Russ... hopefully I do
      better with these one's than the grow out one I got last year... I had several just "disappear"
      last year, and he was one of them.
      Just there one day, the next... gone.

      Anyway, here they are right outta the box... still rather dark from the trip I imagine, but
      I'll try and get another shot before they go into the pond for the summer months.

      Thanks for looking and hopefully others will share how theirs turn out!

      P.S. Thanks Russ!!

      Correct... I'd guess 5-6". I should have put my measuring tape in there on the bottom, but got in a hurry.

      Everybody is still doing great... a little flashing and wasn't eating really well, so I ordered some MinnFinn, as I've
      used it before with great results. But now, a few days later, I haven't seen any more flashing, and they're eating
      like horses , so I might hold off. I'm just going to keep an eagle eye on them to see how they continue to behave,
      since I don't have a scope or anything, and the MinnFinn hasn't arrived yet.

      Did the flashing happen only after they were in their new home for a 12 hr period or so??

      I've noticed that when I've put any new addition into my water, all have flashed for a certain period of time, and then never again. I've always wondered if its them just getting used to the new PH, gh etc.

      I noticed it about 24 hours after arrival... but they're still flashing.
      And still waiting on the MinnFinn...

      I just got mine last night! I'll be posting pictures soon so that you are not the only one in this subject area

      I was also in a hurry, and measured the goshiki against my hand, and didn't get good closeups! Oh well

      It's always good to have company... safety in numbers, or something like that.

      Got mine awhile back, doing great, no problems. Hand feeding already. Thanks Russ

      P.S. - Don't mind the clear container they were in, my bowl was being used at the time for the chag Russ sent me.

      Fun thread, update pics are a must everyone!
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.

      Bavotoi inspired me to get some updated photos... but I wish mine were as beautiful as his!!

      Sadly, I only have one left because of my inexperience... but he's grown to about 15".
      Here's some new pics from today:
