  1. Ahh no worries. I just thought someone would want to display them. But they are just empty boxes, they probably had more sentimental value to me than anything (as it was a reminder of my amazing trip to Japan) but it was time I parted with them. I have other things to remind me of that trip, that are better than empty boxes. lol
  2. This is closed. Thanks for looking.
  3. Of course plants will help with biological filtration . . . but I do remember times where I tried a new plant, only to have it shredded by my fish with bits clogging the filter. To the OP, I suggest trying out the plants before you leave on your trip. That way, you can see if your fish actually eat the plants, or just shred them for fun. Every goldfish is different and some will love to eat one type of plant, while others won't touch it. Also, all filters are different, yours may not suck floating plants in, while others may get clogged up fast. Just some thoughts, do with them what you will.
  4. Goldfish will be fine left with out food for about a week. I have done this several times when leaving town (and so have several other members). If you supplement with moss balls and elodea plants, you should have no worries . . . Actually, it does cross my mind (and I'd like others to chime in with thoughts and experience), might all the extra plant matter clog up the filter if there is too much new plant matter added?
  5. Try an automatic feeder?
  6. I remember reading something about a zoo that set them up in an enclosure similar to an ant farm. I hope it's true as I'd love to see them someday! More so, if they were set up ant farm style!
  7. If only one person wants the boxes, and no one else wants them, then they will all go to that one person. Only 2 days before they get recycled.
  8. Rehome

    They are very attractive fishies! Your tank setup is beautiful too! How large are the fish? Also, what are your thoughts on shipping them? Good Luck!
  9. This ends when they are all claimed . . . or by February 9th when they will be recycled if not claimed.
  10. I have some empty boxes of Japanese Goldfish food that I got when I visited Japan in 2011 (They were full when I got them). I've had the boxes for display ever since. The big one is about 5.5"x4", the small ones are about 5"x3". I'm hoping to move to a new house soon and I'd like to rehome the boxes with some of our amazing members. I want to spread the fun around so please claim one box per person. All you have to do is: (1) have been a member for at least a year or more. (2) Post on this thread and say which box you want. (3) Send me a PM with your name and address. I'll cover the shipping. I just want to rehome them with someone who will appreciate them!
  11. Did you figure it out? Let's see what you got!
  12. Yes, photos and posting here may help: https://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/138-want-to-buy-giving-away-or-rehome/
  13. I've used a few puzzle toys with my cats and here are just a few ideas to help with your pup . . . Like Hidr suggested, try showing your pup how to use it. I've taught several cats how to use puzzle toys by showing them what to do (sometimes many times). Dogs may learn quicker. Try using the puzzle toy when your dog is very hungry: like in the morning, before giving pup breakfast or when you get home from work and are a few hours late for pups dinner. Try using it when you are not around (like when you are out for a few hours). When alone, pets may try harder to get the treat, when you are around (like in the video) they may act lazy, knowing you'll come to the rescue and give them a treat anyways. They are smart. Also, try using a dry food, as it will fall out easier and not stick inside. Either way, good luck! And if doggy does not use it, maybe fill it with lights and make a modern art sculpture? .
  14. It's a puzzle feeder! (in green, cause you said that was your favorite color) You drop some food in the large hole, shake it down to the bottom. Your pup can then smell the food through the large hole (and through the small hole on the bottom as well) and then your dog pushes the toy around to make the food shake out. I remember reading that your dog was overweight, so I though this would help doggy work for some of his food! lol The Aqualog All Goldfish And Varieties book is the companion book to the other one we traded for. I thought you needed the complete set and I know you love Ryukins (and it has some real pretty photos of them in there).
