  • How many Goldfish
  1. Thank you all very much. I did not see any males chasing her. The reason why I chose to put her down was because she was sideways on the surface of the water gasping for air, so it wasn't looking to good for her, could constipation cause her to do that?
  2. Thank you all, She hopefully went peacefully, I just didn't want her to suffer. She has done this before, where she she would not eat and act strange, but then she would release some eggs. But this as far worse, because she looked like she was about to die so I thought it was best to end her suffering. Do you thing that she had some egg compaction?
  3. Im not sure if this is the right section for this question, but I just had to put one of my goldfish down because she was on deaths door. She started acting up yesterday by not eating and today she was not only not eating, but staying at the top of the tank sideways. Because she looked almost dead, i decided to put her to sleep. I would have tried to fix the issue, but the water parameters are all in check, everything is zero. The other goldfish are just fine, and physically there was nothing wrong with her. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that she had scratched her red cap a little, but it didn't look infected or anything. She was about four years old and was a fancy red cap oranda goldfish. Was it something that i could have done, or was it a freak death kinda thing?
  4. I have a canister filter, and a few small to medium HOB filters. It is a 55 gallon tank, and I feed pro-god.
  5. I don't know why either, from what I see, if i feed them pellets daily, the water gets cloudy, stop feeding the pellets daily, the water stays clear. What other problems would feeding flakes cause since I sink them?
  6. Ya, only problem is that every time I feed any pellet food daily, I get really cloudy water. Wouldn't making the flakes sink not hurt them?
  7. I currently feed my goldfish wardley flakes, pro-gold pellets, bloodworms, brine shrimp, and peas. I feed them one or the other every other day, I always feed flakes when I get up though. I have head that flakes are bad for them because they float. However, I sink my flakes for the fish, so they don't have to go to the top to eat the flakes, they just float around inside the water where the goldfish eat them as they come by them. I have heard that omega one makes descent food, would these flakes be better than the wardley kind?
  8. I'm only temporarily doing the flakes until I make some gel food, I sink the flakes for the fish btw. I don't remember having cloud water with gel food. I vacuum the gravel every week.
  9. I'm pretty sure that the root cause of this is the pro-gold pellets that I have been feeding them. I'm going to feed them mostly flakes and feed them the pellets on occasion to see if that helps.
  10. All filters have sponges in them. The canister has sponges, bio media. The penguin and topfin filter has carbon in it. The power head filter has a sponge on it too.
  11. I tested the nitrates on the tap and the nitrate cam to 5ppm. I have one fluval 306 canister filter, a aquaclear 30, a penguin 200, a topfin 20 filter, and a power head with a sponge.
  12. I added the sand about one month ago, and yes I did wash it. I haven't tested the tap, but i'll check it today.
  13. I dont have a picture of it when it was really cloudy, this picture doesn't show the cloudiness like it is in person, plus it was way more cloudy before I did a 50% water change yesterday. Here is the pic: http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/s366/tayjay76/IMAG0026_zps5ac8ff5d.jpg
  14. It was around 60 i believe, No the tank isn't near a window, it has two standard fluorescent lights on it. Now it looks like the natrates are still on the high, around 50-60. Even after a 50% water change last night.
  15. The nitrate are a little high, but the ammonia and nitrite was zero. It starts out as hazy and gets worse everyday until I change the water.
