Default Start of my Ranchu Adventure

1st time into keeping ranchus.
A couple bought from YF yesterday.
Still abit shy.
Btw, I'm using a eheim 2026 with outflow pointed upwards. Ranchus don't like high flowrates? Should I get double taps to reduce the flowrate?

2 nice potential pieces. I like the body shape of the pc on the right in the 2nd pic.

I see you are using 2x1x1 tank? I would suggest a bigger tank (or bigger plastic tub) from the start to provide ample space for growth.

Last but not least, it wont be 2 pieces only for long

U feed directly the next day after your purchased or after a few days? Goldfishes tend to get stressed easily especiallly the shipment just arrived and the fishes haven settle down yet at the place then been selected and purchased by customer on that day and bringing back home. This 2 transition within a day will caused the fish to be stressed, give them another 2 days or 3 days more before feeding them again. I see there is other fishes inside best is remove them else they will be gone if it fit the goldfish mouth upon it stable.

Above juZ my 1 cents opinion.
