I'm currently new to this forum, but have been in the goldfish keeping hobby for about a year. I recently had my first goldfish spawn, very unexpectedly. The parents are a red ranchu from my local pet store, a blue ranchu from Dandy Orandas, and a blue/bronze oranda from Zhoas Francies. The fish spawned on June 10 and hatched 3 days later. Even though it is my first spawn I'm not a total stranger to goldfish breeding. I have done a ton of research on this topic. The eggs were laid in my 55 gallon aquarium. Unfortunately, most were on the floor of the tank, but some were on a plastic plant. I had know where to move my 3 adult goldfish, so I couldn't save the eggs which were on the floor of the tank, but I was able to move the plastic plant into a empty 20 gallon tank. The fry are now around 9 days old and have been eating brine shrimp like crazy. I have been doing water change every other day with a length of airline tubing into a bucket. I have been filling up the tank with about 6 in of water. Right now I think there is only around 60 fry, but don't know the exact number. I plan to update on the fry's growth and development in about a week. When I do my first cull.
