  1. how many gallons is that tank?
  2. it doesn't say so but your supposed to clean it after you seal.Afteragood rinse they wont smell like vinager anymore.
  3. Tama is still the cutest gf i've ever laid eyes on.Just looks like a little princess with those beautiful flowing fins.Looks like she's wearing a gown.
  4. I HATE THOSE! It's horrible and so misleading to a poor begginer.All it says to the unsuspecting consumer is "HEY i can put 12 goldfish in here because the box says i can" I think thats why kokos stays so busy.i saw a "starter kit" at wally world for 30 bucks that was 3 gallons with a pic of 6 common gf in it.Meanwhile you can get a 10g with test kits there for 15$ but you have to buy the filter seperatly.Yet everyone goes for the starter kit.Lazy people?i think so.
  5. Thats horrible.I guess to them it's kinda like beauty contests.Miss america and such.But nothing not even a rock deserves to be talked about in that manner.It's a goldfish.It never hurt anyone,and i'm sure it has an amazing personality.Nothing deserves to be killed because it's not good enough for someone.But as the saying goes "everytime you see a beautiful woman remember someone got tired of her." I guess that can be applied here.Tell me if they have anymore fish that arent good enough to live by there standards,I'll take em.lol.Poor fish.I feel horrible for him.I hope the person who posted the pic loves him.Everything deserves a chance at life and someone who loves them.
  6. Thanks hun.. Yeah she's very deformed but such a sweety.. I named her Tama Japanese for whole and perfect... she's got a wen also Awwww Tama.That's a perfect name for such a cutie!She's got a wen?!? Like a hood?Or a hat like wen?
  7. What a pretty fish!He/she is very deformed,but he/she looks like one of the disney princesses.lol.Long flowing fins,slim little body,and huge puppy eyes!Whatever type she is it's beautiful!It looks like some sort of comet with a hood.Whats his/her name?
  8. Ok heres a "pink" ryukin.From what i gather white is easily turned pink through i high diet of shrimp,and color enhancers.It's a very pretty fishy.lol
  9. Really?Because it rotted the bottoms of my plants.Wierd i assumed it was the band.Bad assumtion i guess.:)The aquatic plant substrates arent so bad if there contained in glass vases,or something to hold both the substrate and the plant.I have my substrate contained in the driftwood.I hallowed it out to provive a place for the plant.Doesn't need to be vaccumed as the plants are contained and absorb the nasties.I use to have the entire bottom of my tank covered with the stuff too originally.Your very right.Wasn't my favorite thing to do.
  10. Ok I'm personally sorry for everyones behavior bikeboy i hope this minor dissagreement hasnt scared you off.Please just ignore the petty argument.Pixiefish provided very good advice.I hope your little guy feels better soon.I wish you the best of luck.And Welcome to kokos.It's actually not normally like this.It's a very user friendly happy place.Think of this as a family argument.lol
  11. As it stated "If he starts to deteriorate" Meaning theres another problem that isnt due to the ph.Like an parasite.lol.The Aquarium salt is not bad advice at all.I didn't come to this post to argue.I came to help.The advice i gave is very good advice if you pay attention.Obviously medicated food wont help the ph.The ph issue had already been addressed.The direct hit from ammonia definatly isnt helping the fishes overall condition.In terms i was saying to use the salt as a helper.Not to cure the current issue of low ph,and poor water quality.
  12. Yeah im glad you cleared that up pixiefish.The last thing that comet needs in a 20 gallon is a friend.As 20 gallons is a minimum requirment.The bottom sitting may also be due to an internal parasite though.I've cycled alot of tanks with new fish,and old fish, i've never had any bottom sitting.Try some medigold if he starts to deteriorate.It's a medicated food.Also do you use aquarium salt?If not you probably should.It's has electrolytes and reduces the affects of ammonia and such on the fish.It is safe for goldfish.The tank will still cycle it will just take a little bit longer,but at least if you miss a water change the ammonia isn't hitting that beautiful little guy at full bore.I wish you luck with your goldfish.He is very beautiful.
  13. I suggest taking the rubberband off.I have alot of money wort growing out of holes in a piece of drift wood.I kept the rubberband on too in the begining.It cut off the plant circulation and the bottom where the band was died off,thus it didnt properly root.Get yourself some aqua dirt or w/e it's called.lol.Ask for plant substrate safe for fish at a pet shop with alot of stuff for fish.I cant remember what the stuff is i use.lol.But it's safe for fish,and does wonders for aquatic plants.Also glass votive holders,or shot glasses doesnt matter really,are good for planting your moneywort and other plants in.And it really helps with uprooting issues.Hope that helps.
