  1. Past hour
  2. Mandy if you have a true black comet, you have a real prize. Breeders have tried their best to get a true black long-bodied goldfish without telescope eyes. Typically, what is called a "black comet" is a koi - goldfish hybrid. These get very large and are sterile. Please breed your black comet and see what you get.
  3. Today
  4. Years ago I got a butterfly tail goldfish. I have never seen these again! Where can I find these? I'm in Pittsburgh, PA, USA
  5. Interesting....! So they require more light then? Koko, what kind of LED light do you have? You can change the colors on it? I was contemplating something like a half wine barrel water feature...
  6. I think lighting and genetics has a lot to do with it. I have a black comet out in the pond that has stayed pure velvety black, she is a favourite and a stunning fish. I also have a tiny black moor who has barely grown since I got her, she is inside under fluorescent light, and she has also stayed pure black. In my other pond there is a have a black moor/nymph, also has stayed pure black. My old black fish, turned completely gold as she grew. I've also noticed that with good lighting and food the black on my calicos tends to become a lot darker
  7. If you will be able to house them I say go for it! Not many people can house big fish like that.
  8. Shovelnose Catfish grow to about 3ft and Redtail Catfish grow to about 5ft . . . However I do have the two 160 gallon stock tanks that I'm setting up and the 3 catfish could live in one of them for now. I plan on getting a few more stock tanks on the larger side, 1000 gallons or so. So it's doable, but I still have my reservations . . .
  9. Redtails get MASSIVE. like 3ft? I don't know about the other one
  10. AWE! They’re adorable! How big does that species get?
  11. Someone on craigslist is getting rid of these fish. I kinda want to get them for one of my aquaponic system in my garage . . . they are adorable and little (for now)! Redtail Catfish: Two Shovelnose Catfish: Someone talk me out of the idea. . . or into the idea. .
  12. She looks healthy except for the lump, was there a specific concern you had with the image? I can’t see both sides well because of fins but she is a pretty fish with good color (nothing that immediately screams infection like red patches or blanched body color) and no dropsy, so that’s all good news
  13. Yesterday
  14. I like them both, Great Job
  15. That has always been a fun question. I do know that food has a lot to do with it. Foods high on the algae side that has carotene will change there colors. But in my Honest opinion it has to do with light. Most fish that are Black, I mean solid back, are held in ponds. Have a Moor I have had for about 4 years or so started to turn orange on me. I looked at my lighting and the bulb was 2 years old. It wasn't emitting the light I needed to keep her black. So I got a New LED light that I can change the reds, blues, greens and white on the led. It has help my fish should have been all orange by now after 8 months of changing, but she's not. Her black changing to orange has slowed down. I don't think I can stop it but its slower than it was. I hope that makes since....... She is still turning but very slowly. I get you a photo of her today when I can.
  16. I have always had this issue so I stopped buying black goldfish. How do you retain that velvety black and not have it fade?
  17. I drew some more stickers. gonna do recolours of them too eventually.
  18. Koko, can you please elaborate on this? I have read abit about internal and hang on filters.
  19. I agree the only thing that worries me is the internal filter in the long run
  20. Back I love my 40B tank. So easy to clean and easier to see the fish too.
  21. I wish my fish would clean my room or at least help. They use the excuse that they are fish and they cannot clean but can swim though.
  22. koko
