Fantail Goldfish I got these Fantail Goldfish (Carassius auratus) in mid-November. I also got a pair of Black Mollies. Together, these guys are the longest living fishes I’ve had. The previous two batches I had, unfortunately didn’t live very long. They have slowly started recognizing me, which feels nice… They’d swim towards me and then up when they see me, anticipating food, I suppose… A few weeks ago, I was washing their big, heavy glass bowl, and a small piece broke off from the bottom. So, I went on Amazon and got them a huge new home. They now swim around up and down and across all day. They seem happy… The walls have a strong total internal reflection (the same phenomenon utilized in the prisms in our SLRs), which could only be seen in the tapered edges in their previous home. The tank even came with a built in filter, that filters out muck on a sponge, which I didn’t know was a thing. So, I won’t need to clean out the whole tank, which is a good thing, considering how big it is. For the size, the tank’s quite light (it’s made of Fiberglass). And there’s in-built LED lighting. That retires my filter and LED spotlight, that I used in the previous tank. I have found use for the spotlight though, in my photography… I will post those very soon… EXIF Info Exposure f/6.3 1/60 secISO 800 Focal Length in 35mm 300 Date taken 2020:02:08 13:00:57 Camera NIKON D3200 Spread the love Tweet Post navigation Bayhops – Beach morning glory – Goat’s foot – Ipomoea pes-capraeDisclosure Sapil Cologne for men 12 Comments Lovely capture. Our son did hve a huge fish tank with gold fish, angel, Black Molly and some otthers..I forget the nmes !! One feels so relaxed sitting in front of thr fish tank.. but honestly I would let them free in the rivers. Mercifully our son did it !! Devi:))) Reply Well, I’m not sure about Mollies and Angel fishes, but from what I’ve read, Goldfish will either die in natural waters, or become an invasive species, eating off the local fish populations. They can grown as big as two feet in the wild when the other fishes are less powerful… 🙂 Reply très jolie capture JP Reply Merci, JP… 🙂 Reply Beautiful capture. I love his attitude and colors Reply Beautiful color and clarity! Your PoV really emphasizes where it got its name from. 🙂 Reply Didn’t realize they could recognize people. The new tank sounds nice. Reply WOW. I didn’t know fish tanks came like that either, Sudipto. Sounds like a win-win for both you AND the fish. Fabulous photo, btw. Reply un joli rendu ! Reply brilliant shot, Sudipto. i can imagine cleaning a fish tank is quite some work Reply Great catch…love the result ! Well done ! Reply Hello The photography is very pretty Your fish are happier in a bigger house and in fact they have a different vision of their surroundings than before Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
