    Tank of the Month Winner

    Thank you very much!!!!!! I didn´t espect to win a photo competition!! Well my tank it has 600 litres that is about 160 gallons and actually I have 9 goldfish (6 oranda and 3 ryukin) and a couple of ancistrus. My fishes are not really special cause in Spain is really dificult to find something interesting... Actually my tank don´t look that way cause I had a problem with a parasite call "lernea" and and I took all my sand out of the tank, clean everything (boiling the rocks and pieces of wood) and righ now in the tank there are only 2 rocks, a piece of wood and water that´s all...

    Substrate or no substrate?

    I have tried both, barebottom and sand and like both ways. The only thing I can say is that barebottoned tanks look much more dirty because the fish poo is on the bottom of the tank and normally, with the fish movements, it loos like a cloud of poo all the time and mainly in the morning...and with sand the poo is not so visible...with sand, a piece of wood or some plants, whatever but something.

    New fish (and the orandas!)

    Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! Very nice pics!! And I love your Blue oranda (Iron blue I guess), is just georgeus!!
  5. Yes, do it, your fishes will appreciate that!! And in the UK you won´t have any problem finding this food, but for example here in Spain is almost impossible to get them, I usually buy them using Ebay and they all come from the UK..

    Thanks, if I have time I will have a look to them!! Thanks for sharing One thing I´m sure of, sun is our best friend in terms of keeping a good coloration!! I have both tank and pond and the coloration in fishes living outside is just incredible, no comparation with fishes living with artificial lighting. Sometimes I´ve had some fishes living in the tank and have moved them to the pond and after a few weeks they didn´t look the same fish!! Incredible!!
  9. I´m sorry about that...so sad!! If you can change your food, Tetra is probably the worst trademark in goldfish food and many people say that tetra can produce floating problems. Best foods are Hikari, maybe JBL and of course home made foods (also bloodworms and those kind of things) And also one last thing...for your tank size you may have too many fishes, try with less and you will see the difference..

    Exactly!!! Was in that book where I have read about panda coloration and it´s instability...probably in a near future we will have the chance to have "real" panda goldfish....but now, probably, the real panda are in chinnese or japannese hands...

    I don´t remember exactly where I have read about panda coloration...I think that was in a chinesse forum or a book, I can´t remenber this but i now that was somthing that call my atention deeply!! Cause I though, like many other people, that panda coloration was another kind of coloration but in this place thay said that this coloration (panda) is just a step, a fase if you prefere, before a change...I wish this is not true ´cause panda coloration is just beautiful!! Beautifull tank yours!!!!!

    Most of those plants are not acuatic plants...take a look through internet ´cause they are going to pass away soon or later but they will do... In your betta tank, as you can see, those plants are semi acuatic, that means that they can live with the sustrate wet but not under the water all the time (and those plants, yours, are turning brown because of that)...
