  1. Hello, all. I hope you're doing well. I've come to you with another question. In my tall 40gal tank I've got a fine air stone that spits out thousands of bubbles. Lately I've been noticing that when those bubbles pop at the surface, some water gets out of the tank and spills onto my floor. If I lower the level of the water, the filter's output becomes the source of the same problem. I have a hood on my tank but it doesn't cover every inch of the top obviously to let air in and whatnot. What are the solutions for this problem?
  2. Not quite sure. My mom got something against them. My whole live I've never had a heater.
  3. Ah, ok. How slowly would you suggest? I've never had to change water temp before :/
  4. I checked the temp in my tank when I got home & it is at 58F which I think is way below what it should be. It doesn't get much warmer in the day as sunlight never reaches my room. I heard goldfish can live in cold temperatures but I wasn't completely sure about it. Should I get a heater?
  5. Aw really? But it's quite new how do I know which parts are the ones making the noises?
  6. I have one of those Whisper air pumps and every so often it will stop whispering and the motor or fan or whatever will get as loud as a plane. I don't know what's causing it. It echoes throughout the house.
  7. Thanks everyone for the advice. It's pretty hard to catch Precious because my tank is so deep but at least she's eating now
  8. My little black ranchu, Precious, sees the sinking pellets falling but seems to be unable to follow them so that she can eat them. The other fish end up eating all the pellets long before she can spot another one that hasn't yet been eaten. I read that she should eventually learn to eat after a while but it's been at least a month since I've seen her catch a pellet. I'm pretty sure she's feeding off the algae that grows in the tank but I want her to eat the pellets like my other fish. Help please?
  9. Hey, I just put a new bubble wall in my 40gal tall tank & I was just wondering if the current might be a little too strong for my fishies? They're not constantly flying around everywhere but how can you tell if the current is too strong for them?
  10. Thanks for the advice, everyone. Greatly appreciated. However, I think Buster's swim bladder might be f**ked up (please excuse my 'French' but) there really isn't a better way to describe it. He floats around like the gobs of ... stuff.. in a lava lamp. I think he's sleeping now and his body is vertical as opposed to the normal horizontal. His tail is up high & his nose is pointed downward. I don't know what is wrong with him. You already know the pH, ammonia varies from 0 to .25, nitrites and nitrates are both steady at 0.
