  1. Today
  2. Standard or total length? How old is she?
  3. Wow, beautiful! Congratulations - I hope the catalog was complimentary.
  4. Internal filters can build up so much gunk that it will have stagnate water in the tank. Same problem with Under-gravel filters. We suggest HOB or canisters with them. Or you can have a HOB with a sponge filter, I had that for a long time
  5. I'd estimate her to be at around at least 11 inches or so at the moment
  6. Picture of my pond is gracing the Lilypons catalog cover this year!
  7. The flowers are representative of the full grown plants. I’m just going to be selling the tubers and itty bitty baby plants. Not yet flowering. Granted the tubers can be used to create multiple plants if desired...
  8. I am selling some tropical water lily tubers and very small potted starts locally this weekend. Would like your opinions on a reasonable price... I have more of some types than others and some are big and some are small (but in the end will all produce a flowering plant). I’m thinking between $4-7, reasonable? I do want to get rid of them. Ebay has tropical tubers going for about $15 (including shipping). The purple is King if Siam (day bloomer), the pinks are Mrs George C Hitchcock and Celon Pink (both night bloomers).
  9. Yesterday
  10. Oh no she is definitely a hybrid. I'm just use to just calling her a black comet. lol
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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...
  14. 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
  15. If you will be able to house them I say go for it! Not many people can house big fish like that.
  16. 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 . . .
  17. Redtails get MASSIVE. like 3ft? I don't know about the other one
  18. 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. .
