  1. Yea,was a relief that I found it in time!
  2. I have to agree with Helen, I wouldn't put this fish through shipping, I think it would be too stressful and would be highly likely to die during the process i dont think it would survive without treatment, and even with could be iffy, but i really dont think it could handle the shipping either
  3. My 15g fry tank cracked today, all along the bottom. Thankfully it didn't go right through so it didn't leak. Don't know how it happened, it wasn't like that when I left for work this morning, got home to do their WC and saw the huge crack. I had a spare 15g so I set that up for them
  4. Bruce Jr., or Sharky as I found myself calling him, will become a keeper I think lol
  5. I think it is safe to say that Bruce had a part in fathering the pond fry
  6. The only thing i would possibly add is a BN Pleco, even that is debateable as to whether they should be with goldies, although I haven't had any trouble with it. From what I understand Guppies and Mollies prefer bigger groups than just two, I generally wouldn't recommended adding anything other than goldfish with goldfish. Smaller fish can easily become targets and seen as snacks
  7. The guys in the big pond and my tanks haven't spawned, except for the one lot in the bedroom tank that Lenny came from. But the guys in the small pond...sheesh they haven't stopped!
  8. I moved Lenny to a 5g today. I hope continues growing at a good rate! Today was a waterchange day, Seven water changes all up! The Two fry tanks (Lenny and the younger ones), The Main Tank, Bedroom Tank, Tropical Tank and Both Ponds. Small pond is still full of eggs!
  9. Here is Lenny today. 5 weeks old. I'm not sure if he should be bigger by now but I'm feeding tons and doing tons of water changes
  10. They look so good Koko! I hope my little lenny catches up to them in size soon
  11. Its a great egg catcher lol, so is the hair algae.
  12. Sorry about the nausea taryl! My pondies have been busy again
  13. 1) Has anyone raised the temperature higher than 80F for their fancy goldfish? I read it's possible to go up to 86F, true?? Yes, I went to 86 when I had to treat my tank for ich 2) I have 1 tbsp per 5 gallon. How much more salt can they handle? I salt to 0.3% which is 1 gram per litre.For your tank that would be 510 grams. I add this 0.1% at a time every 12 hours, so it would be 170 grams every 12 hours 3) Keep temperature at 80F and 1 tbsp per 5 gallon for 14 days?I Keep the salt concentration and temp for 2 weeks after you've seen the last ich dot disappear 4) Do about a 20% water change every other day? Lots of WCs are good during the treatment 5) If I run out of aged water, adding prime is okay? Yes, make sure to add the salt to the new water you are putting back in 6) In case after 14 days and ich seems to be resistant to heat and salt, what other medications and drastic measures can I take? There are medications that you can buy to kil ich, most of them as far as I know, will also kill your cycle though 7) Increased of cyst, sitting at the bottom of the tank, fins splitting... are normal during treatment? Bottom siting and split fins I've found are normal with ich and the treatment, as they are quite stressed during it.
