  1. Today
  2. Eggs everywhere! Frisky fish indeed.
  3. Sorry please don’t reply to this. I changed my mind about keeping him because it’s too risky for my family. Didn’t want to waste your time. If I start over again, I know where to go. Thanks! Netta
  4. They’re gorgeous fish! Your tank looks so much more lively now. I’m sorry it’s been a rough month but new fish always make it better 🙌
  5. Yesterday
  6. Hello! Glad y’all still here! I had goldfish last summer and you guys helped me with my fish. I no longer have them. I decided to set up a new tank 1 month ago. I read this book on goldfish and followed the quarantine process with the treatments I named above. It was suggested that My fish looks like he has TB. I got him from the lfs. I know oftentimes people Euthanize fish for TB, but it can’t be confirmed without a test. Cheeto is fine for the most part. He swims around the tank, he does pip even after all the treatments I did, he’s not pooping well, but he loves to eat. I haven’t been feeding him a lot and he’s really hungry. Sometimes his energy is low. Like this morning seems like he had a hard time swimming off the bottom of the tank, but he did get up and has been swimming fine every since. Also his tank has been salted to .5%ppt for two weeks at 82 degrees and I’m bringing both down over the next 4 days. Maybe the salt is adding to the lethargy. I want to see if there is anything else I can do for him. Like I treated with Epsom salt food for 10 days. I wonder if that works as well as Metro food. I appreciate if you can give me some ideas. Maybe I can try something different. Thanks Donetta aka Netta Test Results for the Following: Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 Nitrate level(Tank) 0, uncycled tank, 50% water changes every other day.

Brought this fish 1 month ago, in tank alone Any medications added to the tank? I used 3 treatments of MinnFinn, Aquarium to @ .5%ppt for two weeks, in the process of water changing out the salt List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. I used 3 treatments of MinnFinn, Aquarium to @ .5%ppt for two weeks, in the process of water changing out the salt. 10 days of 3% Epsom salt food. Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Cheeto has an area of his wen that’s more translucent than the other side, there is white edges on the end of each of his wen area that covers his gills. Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? He loves to eat, but I’m told he is too skinny and told that he looks like he is wasting, He pips periodically, and he has white stringy feces. I think he is constipated. I believe I over fed him last Monday. I fed him 4 pieces of Repashy SuperGold. I haven’t seen a good BM since then only strings and mucous. I fasted him for 2 days then feed him peas on Wednesday. I fed two pieces of Repashy today. I’m not seeing hardly any stool. Bowels was more regular prior to Monday, but even before then there were strings regularly.
  7. Thanks for the suggestions. I’m going to continue monitoring him in the shallow tank and work on lowering the nitrates in my larger tank. I’ll report back with updates!
  8. Marmalade and Goldeen decided to start breeding season early I normally don't see eggs until October/November
  9. I wouldn't add anymore fish, anything small would be at risk of been eaten. Once the moors grow up the tank will look quite full
  10. I have a 35 gallon tank. Recently set it up. I’m quite happy with my two black moors but my husband wants to add just a few more fish to make it more diverse. I know that my tank is pretty much booked so no more gold fish. BUT I was wondering if there’s an exception for medium/smaller fish? I looked everywhere it seems controversial for what kind of fish that would do well with goldfish. Can anyone give me an actual answer for what fish would work or have had experience? Thank you!
  11. Last week
  12. Mocha and Willow checking each other out!
  13. That is seriously fun! I love how it turned out. As for me, found a new bunny friend for my Mocha, after three other bunnies swiped left on him 😂 Meet Willow! She made that mess in her clean, new cage in like ten minutes 😆 Now we undertake the gradual process on bonding these two. They’re houses side by side to get used to one another’s movements and smells, and the initial bonding date went very well. But still, rabbits are territorial and though they make life bonds the process begins slowly and carefully. But then they’ll be inseparable 🙌
  14. Got t shirt with my art on it
  15. I think he's telling you what he wants -- shallow water.
  16. Only one of my current juvies have changed color - and they were born in April or the beginning of May if I recall. It’s highly dependent on genetics, but anywhere from 3-9 months seems normal for retaining fry color.
  17. koko

    We got Fry!

    They should start to change soon, don't know when really. The interesting part is mommy is a Moor so I'm assuming that most will be black. I have noticed a lot of single tailed fish. Some have double but a good majority of them are single. I don't have any Ranchus lol but I had a feeling that would happen. Sent from my VS995 using Tapatalk
  18. Been a rough month. Both at work, personally, and for my poor lonely fish after losing its tank mate! A few weeks ago, I ended up purchasing some new tank mates. They bring me so much joy! Thought I would introduce them to you all... The calico is a very energetic yuan bao just FULL of personality (couldn’t resist, made me laugh so much) and I also picked up a lemonhead ranchu. Absolutely in love [emoji3059] Finally time for the introduction... A friend for me?!?! Yuan bao Ranchu Demanding food already. Three amigos Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. When do they start to develop colour, or will they stay grey?
  20. It could honestly be either of those factors with the tank . I’d suspect illness but his improvement in your shallower tank makes that less likely. Nitrate sensitivity could also be the culprit. Some more delicate fish really do best in the 5-10 ppm range, so consider servicing your filter and clearing out the mulm, then see if he responds better.
  21. Hi everyone, its been a while since I posted here, I hope everyone is well. I’ve got a bit of a head scratcher here: I’ve had an Oranda for three weeks now, he’s about four inches red and white colored. He went through a two week quarantine, he was super excited and healthy when I bought him and nothing developed when he was in quarantine. He was one of the happiest goldfish I’ve ever seen and that’s saying something! I have a quarantine medication regiment that has worked real well in the past and did that. I then put him in my 65 gallon with two other lion heads, lightly planted at about 30% percent. The tank is 25 inches tall. But once he got in there he would only perk up for meal time. He would go to the top and just hang out, not gasping for air and I noticed no swim bladder issues. I have plenty of surface agitation with aqua clear hang on backs enough for a 210 gallon tank and an air stone for extra agitation. I did my weekly water change and he returned to himself for a little while but then went back to hanging out at the top. Well, I put him back in my twenty long/short quarantine tank and now he’s acting like his normal self swimming around like crazy and only going to the top every now and then to get a little air. I’ve noticed no signs of illness, streaking, red marks, etc. I wonder, is my 65 too tall for him? Do I have too much surface agitation? Any ideas as to what is going on with him would be welcomed. I’m completely perplexed. My tank parameters: PH: 7.8 Ammonia: 0 Nitrates: 20-30 ppm 65 Gal., 0-5 ppm 20 Gal. Nitrites: 0
