So I thought it was about time we give you an update on what’s been happening here at Waverly Goldfish. Posts have been a little light lately, but there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes I promise. Here’s a run down on what’s been happening lately and some teasers about things coming up in the future.
Social media and branding
First of all Waverly Goldfish now officially has a logo and social media branding. We ended up using an excellent designer that we found by hosting a design contest on 99designs.com. We received over 190 designs for 40+ designers and ended up with the logo of our dreams. I highly recommend (this isn’t an endorsed post) checking out 99designs if you have any kind of design work you’re looking to have done. Our experience was fantastic and the results speak for themselves. If you’re not already, please go check out and like/follow our other social media for more regular small behind the scenes looks at what we have going on. We’re @waverlygoldfish on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Also be sure to go subscribe to our Waverly Goldfish YouTube channel.
Even more fish!
We’ve got a lot more room and even more fish. We now have 1,200 gallons of outdoor grow out space for our fish. This means we’re able to have a lot more spawns and grow out much bigger and better looking fish without concern of running out of room. We’ve got a month old spawn of our blue orandas which are growing out beautifully getting really big really fast. We’ll be doing some traveling soon. Once we get back expect several more spawns from both them and others. On top of that we have a couple of shipments of new fish for another line I’m really excited about starting coming this week, so be on the lookout for that. We also now have 260 gallons of holding area for fish for sale in our store.
Oh, did I mention we have a store now? That’s right we have an online storefront for selling fish and other things that’s now live. We did a test sale of four fish a few weeks ago and it went wonderfully. As I’ve mentioned as takeaway from that test we’ve doubled our holding/prep capacity. We will be offering a lot more fish for sale very shortly so keep an eye out for that. Additionally we’ve got something very exciting and very special that will be going up for sale in our store soon that isn’t fish. We’re really looking forward to unveiling that but it’s not quite ready yet. Don’t worry though, with in the next few weeks we should have that not only announced but available for purchase.
And even more at Waverly Goldfish…
We’ve got a few more things going on as well, but that’s about it to share for now. This fall we’ll be traveling to several goldfish events that we’ll be sure to post about before hand as well as have posts and video afterwards so look forward to that.
