About this blog

For myself, and others interest, I think it would be a great idea to blog my goldfish keeping experience :)

Out of QT

Finally, after four cycles of prazi and a great QT cycle, I decided to move Mr B into the main tank with Momo and Bubbles. The last cycle of prazi finished this morning, so I did a large 70% water change on both the main and QT tanks and made sure both tank had the same pH and temperature. After a few hours, I then acclimatised him to the main tank. I He is loving it! He was swimming on an angle at the bottom of the tank for a while which had be worried, but I figured out he was looking at his

YELLOW :D

I have always wanted for this to happen and progress so I end up with different coloured fish to what I started out with. Not because colour matters (which is doesn't!), but because it is something I find really fascinating and know must be really cool to actually see it progress, plus it would be nice to be able to tell Momo and Bubbles apart Momo has been getting a lot of yellow patches, and although it excites me that I can FINALLY tell them apart, I am a little worried if it is caused by w

Upgrade :D

I have been planning to upgrade my bettas 20L tank to a bigger one, since he really enjoyed living in my 54L for a while, while his 20L was cycling. He has a nipping problem, and always does it after water changes or when he is bored. He also looses finnage randomly and rapidly if he sees his reflection, but it never progresses into rot which is strange. I don't know why he looses finnage, but it literally takes 5 minutes for his nice regrowth to be shredded from flaring at his reflection. I h

Bubbles showing his 'true' colours

So, as it seems, Bubbles has decided that he just is not happy being pure white and orange and want's to be a little different (thank god! I can hardly tell them apart!) A few weeks ago he seemed to look a little 'off' if that makes sense. I thought he was getting ill or something since his fins were looking really pale and so was his face. A few days later the pale parts began to go a dull yellow, and now they are a really vibrant yellow. I don't know why, but the camera wouldn't pick the yel

Siamese fighting fish Biology EEI (extended experimental investigation)

So for my senior biology EEI we got a choice to chose one scientific experiment for the whole year (split up into sections), or one topic for one unit of work. I decided to go with Siamese fighting fish since I have had the most experience with them and bacterial issues than any other type of fish. The experiment I chose to do was the bacteriostatic abilities of Indian almond leaves and aquarium salt at getting rid of fin rot. So far I have spent the year gathering all of my research, and test

37 gallon plants! Finally!

So today, I was meant to be going out with a friend but got ditched at last minute for 'study' (Exams ended on friday) Neat excuse.. So, instead of wasting my day, I went to the aquarium shop! They had a terrible selection sadly which was a pain since there have not been many imports due to the horrible weather, so I got what I could, bleached them, and planted them in some glasses! Here is what I have: 2x grass val 2x baby tears I decided to bunch the baby tears together because one of the

Poor Little Momo

So, Ever since I got my two Orandas, Momo has been constantly ill... With a $142 vet bill I was given metronidazole which worked well until I had a few ammonia spikes and a pH crash! Now my tank is stable but it seems Momo has a parasite. I combined his treatment with metronidazole and prazi and have just re dosed the medication after letting the tank go a few days without the medication. The salt is as 0.2% and his ragged and torn fins are looking a lot better and some of the redness has gone.

Betta tank renovation!

So, today I went out and got a variety of new plants as well as some new gravel. The gravel was very shiny and was pre-washed, so all I had to do was rinse. I can only remember two of the plants names so I will list them : 2x banana lilly 1x moss ball 1x red plant (not sure of the name) 1x grass plant Artemis is still recovering from fin rot, and his fins are growing back slowly. Seems every time I give him a salt bath he looses some finnage, so I am letting it heal in his own time. He u
