    Thanks.

    It's pretty much the gold standard/perfect food for goldfish. It really packs on the pounds and wen/futon (head growth).

    Welcome to Ranchu. Are you a Victorian Cichlid keeper?

    Let's start a new thread, not because your stepping in mine but rather so the content in the forum is more organized.

    Post some pictures of your set up, of the fish, their history and blood line.

    Also talk about your plans and we'll cover some of the basics.
    David...I hadn't started a new thread because I found out (by reading tons of data) and observing my babies have a dorsal fin. So, not Ranchu..but Ryukins.

    They are doing well. It was good to see the confirmation of your fish to gauge their progress. They are in a uncontrolled environment where a unlimited food supply is there for the taking in the form of algae and pond slime. A couple have developed beer bellies At what age is the majority of their growth done?

    If they are below 50F no food.

    And slow, low feeding when in the low 60s.
