    Digital Illustration of my new babies!

    This is a question im also interested in the answer to.Sent from my LGL41C using Tapatalk Hi here is what I wrote to Tiki "Fish painting commissions arn't a regular thing for me so I dont have a price list per say. I do all sorts of work though. www.itherart.com is my art website if youd like to check that out I have a youtube channel to. Ive done tattoo commissions before but not digital paintings. I love to paint fish though, if you like you are welcome to link me some reference photos and a description of what you are after and ill put together a quote for you, thanks"

    Tank of the Month Entries "May"

    Here we have my boyfriends and my 180L Juwel aquarium with our six baby goldies. The tank has a filter cover, terrace, gavel, artificial plants and bubble maker with led light.
  5. I did this digital illustration because I was inspired to draw my six new babies. This is my first post since returning to the forums. They were draw/painted from scratch using the digital painting software ClipStudio Paint with my Huion Pen Display GT220 tablet. I used a reference for each fish, but they were drawn by eye not traced. Let me know what you think ^__^ I do a lot of drawing and I really enjoy art. I have an art orientated YouTube channel iTHERart which I feel will have a lot more artworks featuring my goldfish now that I have these awesome six in my life.

    Stop breeding?

    Oh wow thanks Helen, I wouldn't have thought of that I don't want her eggs rotting / bacteria etc. I will put her in with one male and see how we go Thanks!

    Stop breeding?

    Update: Opus is male... we've found breeding stars on him to. Now poor Voodoo is alone. Do fish always breed??, I know it depends on water temp etc... but what I mean is will it be forever going on with the 3 boys and one girl. Or could we separate Voodoo and one of the boys and encourage them to breed... after they have done their business then could we put Voodoo back in with the boys and all be ok?? Help =(

    Stop breeding?

    I have my black moor female goldie Voodoo in with my broadtail Astral, and fantail Saffron - along with Opus my small ranchu. Astral and Saffron are males and have been chasing Voodoo around like anything. Yesterday I put her into a separate tank (set it up with media and some water from the other tank etc.), as I was worried the two boys were chasing her to exhaustion. Now I'm worried about her being lonely ... gah! can't win. What my fiance and I might do today is setup one of our larger spare tanks to put her in with Opus as I don't think Opus is male (bit young to tell yet tho). Anything you guys and gals suggest for my situation? Thanks in advance!

    DIY Automatic Water Changer

    Hi ladies/lads, Do any of you have your own automatic water change system going? My partner and I have tried the python but dislike the amount water wasted (we currently don't have water storage tanks we could use), we have had manual siphons which have all broken on us with use... We are looking into a decent sump setup etc, however that may be a while off yet. We kinda need something this weekend, we would prefer to not have to go out and get another manual siphon! Halp?

    Panting Goldfish - Help!

    They are completely back to normal this morning =) Keep up with the Metafix? And I will have to try uploading the video again.

    Panting Goldfish - Help!

    Hi Helen, thanks - I'm using the API one. From what I can gather, there has been nothing in the way of water works in the area. I added some API Stress Coat as well. I'm uploading a video at the moment. I've been poking around the net to see if anything explains the situation. What I found out when I turned the light on (wasn't until I went to film them) was that the tank was murky. What I think has happened is a bacterial bloom from disturbing the sand too much during the water change. This would cause fish to gasp right? ... I'd assume so. I've added a dose of Metafix and they seem like they are already acting a bit better. Less "oh gee gimme air.. in.. in.. in" and more "ok, in ...out...in..out" and swimming about a bit more like normal to lol I think they will be ok once this clears up. I will get the video on here when it's uploaded. If any one has any ideas/suggestions let me know =) Thanks!
