  1. Thanks for the tip koko! and @ dna - thanks haha I'm looking through the prices and its ridiculous how much higher the Canadian price is over the US site...
  2. How much of this do you recommend me buying? this product might be available in one of my LFS actually haha that carry everything!
  3. Is this it? http://www.bigalspets.com/fish/health-supplements-medications/metro-3-5-fl-oz.html
  4. @ koko, I actually still see some redness in the fins that the camera cannot capture... It was because I got my ranchu isolated to get a good top view that the redness is really dominant. Any tips on better video recording? :S Also why does increasing the temperature reduce redness? @dna - I have never heard of such a powder but I will try my best to locate some haha
  5. THEY ARE GORGOUS!!! and are some of the threads not working ATM? After posted a link it wouldn't let me open my thread !
  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19xywoJSYmU&feature=plcp Sorry for the wait guys, It failed to upload on photobucket 3 times so I put it on youtube -.- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19xywoJSYmU&feature=plcp Sorry for the wait guys, It failed to upload on photobucket 3 times so I put it on youtube -.-
  7. What could the redness be? And I saw a post by another person in the forum that has really good pictures because its fairly close to what my ranchu is having since she has a ranchu called Mango. That just makes me more worried... And i don't have another tank I can use to separate him into since I have 2 fish already in that tank D; And for sure I'll record and upload a video now!
  8. Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5 or less (the colors lighter than the chart LOL!) He looks about the same today still active and eating! If pine coning does get worse do I need to separate him at all?
  9. I just bought a heater today and I'm bringing up the temperature to 22C! What are my next steps?
  10. The fish ate half of them already and I syphoned out the rest of them I don't have the equipment to take care of the eggs or fry =[
  11. I did a 50% water change and raised salt level to 0.3% now the eggs are gone D;
  12. Getting Really excited now, do I syphone them out then?
  13. Don't those salt spots drop to the bottom of the aquarium after though? BUT WHAT DO I DO NOW THAT I HAVE EGGS!?!? I DONT HAVE ANOTHER TANK OR SPONGE FILTER!
  14. So i came home today and noticed that there were a bunch of these clear bubble like things in my quarantine tank with my pearlscale and oranda. Is this ich or fish eggs?!?!? So exciting if they are fish eggs! http://s199.beta.photobucket.com/user/RyosaykuX/media/DSC_0214-1.mp4.html
  15. Thanks everyone haha! But so far with fish I've had bad luck since I have lost a few :S
  16. For sure, is there a specific type that I can get to set the heat instead of getting a preset one? Theres a deal at a pet store tomorrow buy 50$ get a 20$ gift card
  17. I'm starting the water change right now, and what are other ways I can raise the temperature of the tank to 74? I only have a heater in the 20 gallon that I am using to quarantine with and it raises the temperature to 78
  18. So I raise the main tank temperature with all the fish in it?

  20. I had to isolate my ranchu in order to get a close top view but here it is. I also noticed red streaks started to appear on the fins T_T http://s199.beta.photobucket.com/user/RyosaykuX/media/DSC_0213.mp4.html I'm starting to wonder if my new ranchu has it too now @__@
  21. Would salting help pineconing in anyway? If so I could salt my main tank since it does no harm to the fish
  22. Since my tank is so deep It is hard to get a video from uptop with detail but here is a picture of what it sort of looks like I found on google. http://s310.beta.photobucket.com/user/amynmitchell/media/newfish034-2.jpg.html?filters%5bterm%5d=recent&filters%5bprimary%5d=images It is only "slightly projecting out since It is the first day I noticed it so even from top view you cannot see much at all
