    Need to trim plants again. Since I have started using flourish and Excel my plants are thriving!! Can't believe I never did before. Also I moved moma betta to the blackwater setup since I post a pic I think. The male betta I had in there would not leave the neon green Rasbora alone.

    And here are Shrimp and Star now. Some noticeable differences between July and September. Shrimp is still weirdly fat for a Comet but she's doing quite well. Star is doing well too. Beginning to look like a proper Ryukin rather than a juvenile.

    Oops... That went into the WRONG thread. Haha wow. Can someone move it? If not... I can repost it there. In other news... normally my food turns out like rubbish but today it turned out great. It was shrimp alfredo. Not bland or weird tasting like usual. Was very good actually.

    Wow shame on Walmart! I've seen some crazy stuff with Bettas at a pet stores, but never a three for one special all in the same cup. Hot mess! I'm surprised they're all alive. Hope they pull through.

    I started out having some cute little goldfish catch my eye YEARS ago. I bought 3 or 4.....why not I had a 10 gallon tank at home that hadn't been used in years. I took them home, filled the tank, plunked the fish in there & then went to find where I had stored the filter. You can imagine it didn't take long for things to go TERRIBLY wrong. The poor lil' goldies started swimming less & less....then started dying. I started searching the web & stumbled across KOKO's. I quickly found I had not near enough tank & way too many fish! MY hubby bought me a 20 gallon tank. I think one goldie survived the ordeal. My learning curve was long & slow but I eventually learned & can now enjoy them!!

    Hi and good morning y'all. TGIF....was this close to not coming to work today. Wanted to take the day off and clean my tank and take care of other business LOL. But I came to work anyway. Will take care of the stuff this weekend.

    Yea..these are single tails. Its weird that they just haven't grown. Though the ones I he inside at the moment seem to be having a bit of a growth spurt, strange since my tanks are more overstocked than the pond lol. Maybe they re getting more food in the smaller place. Anyway once spring sets in I'll be swapping some fish around and will see how things go then I don't seem to be very good at growing fish out, my fish tend to grow very slowly and stay fairly small. If I get eggs this year I wont be raising any, but maybe next year I will try gain

    They are doing well! Except they got to about 3 months old and have hardly grown since then, they will be year old next month but they are still extremely small! They seem nice and healthy though! Thsis is one of my favourites, his name his Rainbow and he has a missing gill plate.

    Hello! I'm Donetta and I'm new here! This is an awesome site and I love learning about Goldfish! This is my second Goldfish tank. The first Goldie I had died of a bacterial infection I believe a few years back. After that I had a Betta or two now I'm back to Goldie's. I have lots to learn about them. I recently got me two new Ranch babies, Goldie and Chum-Chum. I want to have them a long time and willing to do what I can so they grow into healthy fish. I appreciate all the help I can get and appreciate you being here. Here's my form. Thanks!! Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank). ?? I don't have this test. * Nitrate level(Tank) 2.5ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) ?? * Nitrate level(Tap) 0 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.8ph so high from Aq salt I believe??) , I have hard water! I live in Southern California * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6ph Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API drops * Water temperature? 80 * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 20gal long, since 8/18/18 * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aquaclear 30 & a sponge filter * How often do you change the water and how much? The first week I got them I did daily 75% water change. Now following qt Prazipro treatment so usually do Twice per week, 50-75% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Yesterday, 75% * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 Ranchu ( Goldie and Chum-Chum) each 2" from head to tail. I bought from LFS. They were in the same tank. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime, vitachem * What do you feed your fish and how often? Omega kelp Pellets for last two days with Epsom salt. I give them two pellets am and two pm each. Before that I was giving them a mix of pellets and mostly sushi Nori. This was working until I gave them pellets without soaking them one day and they got constipated. So I fasted them and gave them peas and this worked, but then they got constipated off the peas. I think I gave them too much about 1/4 pea each chopped up. Too much? * Any new fish added to the tank? Only two new fish in tank * Any medications added to the tank? Yes * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Started QT treatment 8/25 of .3% Aq salt and double dose Prazipro. I'm on my 3rd round of Prazi. Feeding Epsom salt pellets for the last two day. I mixed up the Epsom salt water according to info on this site. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Last two days observed very light black smudges and tiny red dot on my fish "Goldie" that is all yellow- orange color. However I checked this morning and it's gone. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Goldie and Chum-Chum have big appetites! However, they bottom sit for a few minutes here and there. Goldie more so than Chum-Chum. This is improving though. Also when they bottom sit they will stop moving their fins and let themselves float a little. They do this after Prazi treatment too. They use to flash a lot, but now only occasionally. Goldie spends a bit of time gulping air at the surface. I have a lot of surface movements from the hob filter, sponge filter and 10" bubble wand. I'm really concerned about their poo. Which is thin, stringy and white despite feeding them Epsom salt pellets the last two days. They are not pooping enough. IMG_3337.MOV

    Thanks a ton, Taryl. Couldn't have learned anything without you and the Koko crew.

    I just seen a story from the news on tv on FB about someone throwing Tide detergent pods in a Koi pond and it foamed up and killed the fish Id like to do this to whoever did that.

    You are a great fish groomer, MJ. They look fantastic, and I think the shape is really coming along on Star, too!

    Looks good. I cooked for the week ahead tonight. I cooked 6 pork chops, 5 full chicken breast, fixed black beans, red beans, lentils, sticky rice, and sweet potatoes. That will go with the frozen vegetables I also added into my lunch trays. Peas, peas and carrots, chopped kale, and my side salads that I will be taking. since the new medicine the doctors put me on as reduce the inflammation a lot I have found that some foods that I could not eat before I can now eat in moderation it makes me happy.

    Hello Netta. Hope you had a nice day. After losing so many Goldfish one after the other I decided they weren't for me. I had too many problems with them. I decided instead of just giving up I would get into keeping tropical fish. I just LOVE my Cichlid's!!! They are so colorful & lots of fun!!!! My favorite is my Oscar Big Boy. I got him when he was about 4 inches & he is now over 12 inches. He is so much fun!!!! He is ALWAYS rearranging the tank. LOL!!!! If it wasn't for Goldfish I would never would have made all the great friends I have made here!!! 55 gallon Cichlid tank Big Boy

    It's good getting to know you and everyone else. We're from Missouri, but I've lived here since I was about 5 years old. It's all warm and fuzzy here. You got something special going on with this site. I never really got involved on forums before because it always seemed to distant for me. You must be feeling better since you posted. No worries on the slow posts we all have busy lives. Sometimes I refer to myself as " Slo, but show". Which means I may be slow about it, but you can count on me to get it done. Thanks for being here😊
