  2. My first thing I would do when I get new fish is treat them with General Cure. This medication has Prazi (that will kill Bugs like flukes) and Metro that is an Antibiotic to heal any wounds they might have. You can find it as Petsmarts or get it off of Amazon. Oh and
  3. Hi. I recently added a black moor to a newly established goldfish tank. I got him, along with a few other goldfish, from an online seller. The fish mostly appeared to be healthy. But after a few days, the little black moor has developed a couple of white protrusions on the back of his right eye (see photos). He's also a little lethargic. I would appreciate any thoughts as to what this might be and what to do for him. Thank you! -Abbey

  6. Hello i have 4 years old goldfish and when i woke up today he was swimming upside down and he have blood around his butt. Can anyone tell me what should i do or is he dying? please i dont want him die
  7. I don’t think I realized they breed that prolifically! I’ve been thinking when my goldfish finally pass on I may do a tank with South American cichlids and some tetra and catfish species, but I don’t want things getting out of control frisky in there 😁
  8. It drove me mad. I gave mine to the lfs a year ago and I'm still find fish in the overflow
  9. Oh no. I been watching a lot of abandoned dogs and cats shows at night. Puppy mills make me so sad. How can ppl be like that. Anyhow I'm glad she's got someone that will lover her. She has just a sweet face. ❤
  10. Thank you! I actually had them in a 10 gallon and had to cull the majority (a lot of spine deformities), then moved them to the 20 gallon they are in now. I know that is still not big enough, so to compensate, I am doing a daily water change. I only have one pair that are spawning, but they have already had three batches of fry. The 35 fry I have now are the first group, I only found one fry in the tank from the second spawning, and 5 from the third. I only used a spawning mop the first time, so Im sure the eggs from the second and third either got eaten or sucked up by the filter. Good luck with all your babies!
  11. Hi Fish Lady, at one month that is very good growth. Well Done! Under right conditions they can grow very rapidly. Very nice to find a few extra babes. Tanks pictured with the books are 40 used for breeding. Currently have 3 groups and perhaps will get a fourth spawn today if lucky from the 8 parents. Do not know how many . Normally do not like to raise to many groups but as we are isolated with this Corona thing , no visits can be made to the fish store and all orders from China are cancelled, we will breed our own.
  12. I'm sorry I thought I included that! They are 1 month old. 3-2-20. How many fry do you have? How many gallons is your tank? I just found 5 new fry in my goldfish tank...
  13. Hi Fish Lady, A little difficult to provide answer without the date of hatch. But expect that one cm a month to be a good rate if the biggest 10% of group have enough space and food to grow. Source of good information about breeding goldfish : pictured are 3 books. And can be seen in background that my 90 day old oranda also enjoy the pictures.
  14. I have 35 butterfly telescope goldfish fry. They all range in size, some with much bigger bellies than others. The largest are about an inch (including tail) and have a full belly. The smallest are about 3/4" but do not have much of a belly. Are they around the size they should be at this age? I haven't found much about this online, so if you have any information or a source I would love to know about it Here is one of my little fatties <3
  15. Don't have pics of her parents. We got her from a friend who decided to rehome her and was probably a good thing because she didn't get the best of care. Our friend got her at less than 6 weeks old, no vet work. She never took her to the vet either. I unfortunately think she may have originated from a puppy mill
  16. Just be careful of logs and Goldfish. If there are any spots where water can get in but not out easily, the log will hold stagnate water. This could result in some kind of bacterial infection. 😶
  17. @FishyMandy that is one adorable door. I love looking at dogs and trying to figure out what breed or breeds they are. I can see both in her. Do you have pics of mom and dad?
  18. Lucky you , you have a pond already dug out and was working. Simple fix as the other recommended and I have done, lay down the new liner and it is ready!! You can also try to fill it and see if roots are causai get any problem . I have a couple of ponds that leak a little but is not a problem as adding water is a good thing . Hope you have a good time with your new pond.
  19. First thing that came to my mind was to lay down a layer of EPDM pond liner, right on top of the old preformed pond liner. The new pond liner would have to be secured, just like if a fresh hole was dug, but there is much info out there about that subject, so I won't type all that out. Might be worth a try. Let us know what you plan to do!
  20. I wouldn't bother trying to restore that pond. As soon as you fix one problem, another one will pop up, and another and... I have two in-ground ponds that I built myself. They are endless problems. I recommend you fill in the "pond", level the ground, and either build an above ground pond with concrete blocks or (easier and better) get a stock tank to use as an above ground pond. Look at these for ideas: https://www.google.com/search?q=stock+tank+pond&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS867US867&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiA9vDGlMPoAhVrU98KHRTtAu8Qsxh6BAgOECw&biw=1453&bih=920
  21. @shakaho is really great with ponds. She would be the gal to ask. 👍 If it was me I might see if I could remove the root and seal it back up. But shakaho would know better.
