  1. Felice is Italian for "happy," and it is common to put an adjective after the noun in the language. So mine means "happy fish" in a mixture of English and Italian. I took four semesters of Italian in undergrad and am quite fond of the language. And happy fish.
  2. Hi former roomie! Congrats on the new beauties! They are lucky fishies to be in your care!
  3. I've heard of this. Ottos have spines that make them get stuck in goldfish mouths when eaten.
  4. Hooray! More goldies in the house!! :monkey
  5. I'm pretty sure it's the danger of the ornament releasing the stagnate (and toxic) water into the tank. Moving the ornament causes the nasty water to get into the tank and possibly make the fish sick or kill it. Sometimes the fish themselves will move the ornaments and cause this to happen.
  6. We all make mistakes. I'm sure he'll be fine. Give him a little melafix to mend any scrapes.
  7. I inevitably get drenched when cleaning any tank over ten gallons. Sometimes even the three gallon betta tank splashes me.
  8. That's the biggest loach I've ever seen! He/she's very cute!
  9. Yeah, one side is okay. The rest of his tail is alright on the other side, there's just one tiny hole. But in the past the holes don't heal, they get bigger until I have to use medicine.
  10. Thanks Toothless! That's sounds like a very good idea. This is probably a dumb question, but what is OD and ID tubing?
  11. Oops, didn't know that, or I forgot. I will say what I was going to say in the new members thread. On Lance's tail: I noticed something sad today. On one side where the tail is growing back, it's growing back WITH a hole in it. Not infected or anything, but a hole nontheless. So I used some of your primafix and mixed it with my melafix and dosed the tank. This made my water cloudy but oh well. I wonder if his tail would have grown without holes if I'd done that earlier. I'm so frustrated!
  12. At first I was like, "Neej"? I was all trying to figure out what N-E-E-J stood for. Now I remember, yes, Neej. Since I can't be "Deej". Anyway, thanks so much for the info. I had no idea how to dose them. I'm going to post something to you in Chatterbox just so you know, because I forgot to ask you something on the phone. :phone:
  13. By the way, I just noticed that your intake strainer seems to have gotten lost somewhere. I'd get that replace before anything bad happens. Goldies and intake tubes have quite a long history of clashes....... 327721[/snapback] Thanks Toothless. Yeah, the filter didn't come with an intake strainer for some reason- I guess it was a fluke. I use one from an old filter- but it doesn't fit because it's a different brand. Lance's filter is a Penguin 170 and the intake strainer is off a Whisper or something, and it's too big. The only thing that holds it on is the suction from the filter pulling the water up the tube, and if it's bumped it falls off. Do you know where I could get another one? I can't find any replacement parts like that at the petstores around here.
