  • How many Goldfish
  1. I bought this book a week ago and it arrived today and I'm really impressed so I decided to share. http://www.amazon.com/Encyclopedia-Aquarium-Pond-David-Alderton/dp/0756609410/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1288214163&sr=1-1 It's not goldie specific but I think it has everything. Atleast a BIT of everything. The photos are amazing, from lists and lists of plants to how to build a pond. Anyway, I'm about to jump into bed with a cup of tea and this new book.
  2. Such little cuties! : They must think they're in the ocean!
  3. Is it a bare bottom tank? I put a large marble in one day for no reason and everytime I look it's in a different place! They love pushing it around, it might have something to do with the sound as well. BUBBLES! My silly little fish love playing in the bubbles. I imagine it feels like being tickled.
  4. Can any one give me directions to find the contest?
  5. What a wonderful thing for you and your man to share! The set up will be so much fun. Plant and decor shopping! Congratualtions, it's a beautiful tank. I'm really jealous...
  6. I love Walter! But he's been Heratio for two days now. Heratio Nelson, Heratio Hornblower. My friend said I should call him Admiral Akbar ! : I wish I could cuddle my fish.
  7. Hmmm, Goldfish with Star Wars names... What a good idea. Next big tank will be star wars themed and so will the fishies! My boyfriend and I can bond! Beautiful little fishies! I love Chedder head
  8. This is my darling little Oranda. He still needs a name... I want it to start with a "h". Like Heratio, or Harold, or Henry... That flash of colour in the front, that's Juan, I call him the unloved child. Forced adoption but he's seriously grown on us. An update on Marjory She didn't like our new boy very much and I was so worried but they've settled and seem to be friends now. And finally the tank:
  9. How big is the shubunkin? 'Cause as far as I know single tail fish are faster and therefore become "nippers". If yours is as small as mine you have a serioulsy ballsy shubunkin.
  10. I think most of us are living in fantasy worlds here! Right now mine are pretty simple. 1. Buy silk plant for Betta tank. 2. Buy/ build hidey hole for Betta tank. 3. BUY BETTA! Maybe 4. redocrate 29 gal. Maybe.
  11. We all know that there are a lot of people who start the hobby with misinformation (and I include myself in that). But this unnamed customer has to take first prize in the "biggest-fish-related-stupidity" catergory. http://notalwaysright.com/like-a-fish-out-of-water/6568 Then again, the one good thing is the person who worked there seemed pretty good...
  12. I have a bully who I have to keep seperate. So as an "in the meantime" plan I've got a breeding box that suction cups to the side of the tank. What about getting one to feed him in? Yes it might be a little stressful to move him everyday but if you just scooped him up with the box in the tank he'd hardly notice. The benefits would be that he can eat by himself AND he has time to 'sniff' out the food lying around the bottom. Just becareful not to use anything that could fall through the netting, greedy goldies (as we all know most of them are ) might damage the netting trying to get to the food. Best of luck. P.S. I think it's lovely that you just took in your stride and want to change your routine to try help him, as opposed to just returning him (or worse )
