  1. If i disturb her she will lift off the floor slightly but not for very long. She mostly just scoots over on the floor.
  2. Here is the video. She looks so sad and her belly scales look like they may be slightly raised. I feel so bad for her. http://s1098.photobu...nt=IMG_1280.mp4
  3. Thanks for the fast reply! 1.If i come near the tank or drop food in she will perk up a bit but not much at all. 2. Never had any floaty problems at all. 3. If i try to disturb her she tries to swim away but it seems difficult for her. 4. I Hadnt noticed any gasping recently. She hasnt come to the top at all since this happened and she was the one that i hand feed so when i feed them all I can tell she knows theres food but she wont come to the top, instead she will wait for a piece to fall to the floor by her. 5. Are you wanting me to re test the nitrate? Im about to go to bed but i can do another test in the morning. 6. From what i can see her gills look to be a dark pink 7. I will take a quick video and post ASAP. Thanks!

Ive been having some problems with my telescope Lola for the past couple of days. She has never had any problems since i got her but wednesday night she started to bottom sit which in unlike her. And she hasnt stopped since. She will just sit there and not swim around or to the top. Sometimes it looks like she has something she is trying to cough up but i dont see anything in her mouth. She still eats and isnt pineconed yet but im really worried. Any advice would be great. Thanks, Lindsey.
  5. congrats on the eggs! I have some 2 month old fry right now and its amazing how small they start out. Make sure to remove the fungus eggs right away. I also put in some methylene blue which helped prevent fungus. Good luck!
  6. The fry are doing awesome! They are a little over a month old now. There are 21 of them. Most of them are calico and a few are the regular fry green color. I think I will seperate the bigger ones from the smaller ones and put in a small filter. They eat freshly hatched brine shrimp, or frozen and they also love it when i drop in a couple progold pellets. I will take some pics and put them up soon!
  7. What brands are the most reliable? I dont use a heater in my tank but have thought about getting one. Im just afraid something would happen and it would get too hot?
  8. Hm. good to know. Theres a Petsmart in independence that I got my orandas from. They seem to have alot of healthy and good selection of goldies.
  9. I used Tithras video too and mine came out just about like yours. Mines seems to kind of break apart but my fish love it and dont seem to mind at all!
  10. Gorgeous! Did you get theses guys at Petworld!? Im so going there this weekend!
  11. Thanks for all your help everyone! The fry are about 10 days old now! Ive tried to get some pics but they are so tiny! ill try when they are a bit bigger. There are about 25 of them!
  12. I went to my LFS today and got some HBH baby bites? Its a very fine powder. I put a tiny pinch in, but i didnt see any of the fry eat? Im wondering if maybe they are too young?
  13. Ill give it a try and if not then we can work something out to meet.
  14. I dont have First Bites, but I do have some frozen brine shrimp? It says on the package that it is for frys? If not that would be awesome of you to give me a few.
  15. I woke up and was planning on giving up and cleaning out the tank but one last look and I saw little tiny fry all over! I cant believe it! There are about 20 or so. They swim around for a bit but mostly sit on the bottom or on the wall. Do i need to start feeding them yet?
  16. City Pets? Where is that at? I havent been there before. Id love to check out their bubble eyes and lion heads
  17. I will deffinently stop by there soon. I usually go to Mission Pet Mart for my fish. They are a small mom and pop store that always has a pretty good goldie selection.
