    An empty nest.
  1. Sorry, I don't mean to post this to get pity. Tuyet my Black Moor passed this morning. It will be very strange getting up every morning and not seeing her anymore. She's the only goldfish I had left after giving away the rest because of lack of room. I don't think there's anything I could have done. There wasn't anything wrong with her, she just was bottom for a few days and not eating too much. I didn't want to admit it to myself, but I deep down knew she was going to pass. She was the most beautiful Black Moor anyone could wish for. I gave away the rest of my beloved commons so she could have a better home. I am very fortunate to have a secluded forest to bury her in. Tuyet was the first goldfish I had ever buried. After this, I've decided to give up the goldfish hobby for now. Thank you all for helping me take care of all my beautiful fish. Maybe when I get my own house, I'll dig a fish pond in my backyard and raise koi. That'll be a while, but I'll let you all know when that happens. Tuyet and I thank you again for permamently changing how I look at these amazing creatures called Goldfish.
  2. Thank you for the advice! I don't have any water parameters.
  3. My family and I are going down south for a vacation in less than a week and my neighbor is feeding my Goldfish. The tank will not be able to be cleaned for around two weeks. How often would you advise me to feed my goldfish? 20 gallon tank, one Black Moor. Thank you.
  4. Hello I went to the grocery store today and got some gelatin for some Gel Food. Could you help me a little on how to prepare it and what to put in? Also, is this the right brand to get? Just making sure. Here's some things I have in my veggie drawer. 1. Peas. 2.Spinach 3.Broccoli 4.Green Squash (Is this okay? I hear you can feed Zucchini to Goldfish)
  5. I had a problem with this when I first started out with Goldfish (Back then when I knew NOTHING) I once had a small Black Moor (S/He once lived with Tuyet who is still alive and swimming today) and one day she was missing. I checked everywhere, but then I unplugged my filter and s/he came floating out of the tube of the fliter, absolutely shredded It wasn't pretty at all, but not as disgusting when my Pleco rotted in one of those ornaments. I had no idea my Pleco was dead, until the water change when I saw what was left of him I haven't had problems with violent filter killers anymore, thankfully.
  6. Fishy, fishy, fishy... I want to dig up my parent's backyard and turn it into a Goldfish zoo now!
  7. I'll have to look somewhere to buy food locally
  8. Tuyet (My Black Moor) : "What's on the menu today? Me: "Chopped up peas." Tuyet: "Again..?" That would have been our conversation between me and Tuyet today. So, I cleared up my overcrowding problem lately, but I know I need to feed my Black Moor some different food. Before I knew better, I always fed all my Goldfish flakes every. single. day. If that wasn't bad enough, I never knew to soak them. Either I had Goldfish with stomachs made of steel, or I was extremely lucky. They never had any diseases, not even swim bladder. All I have right now is a can of flake food (That I haven't touched in a long while since I knew it could give Goldfish swim bladder...) a can of floating pellets, and frozen peas. I'm not sure Tuyet likes Spinach very much. So, what kind of food would you suggest to feed to a hungry Black Moor?
  9. I tried that once. It made her look a little too cartoony or anime-ish
  10. Aww, gee! You draw so so superb! This is an example of an adroit creativity. Just awesome! Simply spellbinding! Thanks a lot for sharing, Samurai! May I save these to my PC so that I can use them in my mobile as wallpapers, if you don't mind? I'd rather you'd not do that, but thank you anyways!
  11. This would be my personification of her. Hand drawn on computer, no tablet. I forgot some shading in some parts, but that shouldn't be a huge issue. I also drew these beauties. Goldfish Oranda
  12. I measured and my biggest was about six inches! I'm surprised, since they never had lots of room to grow!
  13. I'm not sure. If you mean the water, it might have evaporated over time. They were cleaning it that day, I suppose they would put more water in it.
