  1. Mysterygirl's Floating-World

    Greetings - welcome to my floating-world. First a few photos. 9 goldfish live here in my backyard fountain in Santa Rosa, California. I'd like to introduce them to you.
  2. RIP Clownie

    Shahbazin I'm so sorry to learn about your sudden and unexpected loss of Clownie- both for you and your children. He was a neat little guy, and I appreciated his all white appearance. I'm sorry for your loss. MyssTeree Girl

    SUMMER Here's a poor quality photo of the Ryukins and Goldie. I couldn't catch one of the amoonklein babies, but she's fine. Perhaps doing the best, actually since I couldn't catch her, heh.
  8. Fish Of Gold's Goldfish Journal

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your dear Tricycle. From your memorial, I know he was well loved. I remember when you brought him home.

    SPRING Lots of spring pond chores. 1. Dose the pond with 10 grams of Prazi - for a suspected Fluke problem. I cast my stink-eye on the sellers of my 3 mail order goldfish. One has since passed. 2. Take a look at the GH and KH levels after a heavy rainy season. Found that they were below ideal. GH (7), KH (7), 3. Amend my 1000 gallon pond with equal amounts of calcium chloride and Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate). I will add slowly add this mixture over the next week. About a pound each. 4. Test pH. ( 8.0 ) 5. add an environmentally beneficial, completely non-toxic bacteria product like Pond Perfect 6. Vacuum the mulm off the pond bottom, which is my small pond's equivalent of a water change. 7. Reverse backwash the bio filter, which is my small pond's equivalent of a water change. 8. Tend to the water lilies: do they need planting medium or fertilizer? Do any of you pond keepers have any chores to add?
  11. Thanks all. My little single tails! I just find them beautiful, and I'm glad if you do too.
  12. Hi wonderful Kokonuts, It has been a while since I've updated anyone on the status of the 4 fry that Allie (username: amoonklein) gave me to care for last fall. Every little pooper is fine! They are rather difficult to photograph. See if you can tell (NOW) who is Mustashio, who is Sharky, who is Snake Eyes and where in the world is Cara?! These are her four different fish babies, photographed just last week. Just one week change between these two shots ^ v Where did Cara's eyebrow go? I'm going to have to rename her now!

    This was her expression after I told her!
  14. I can't wait to tell Goldie Hawn! She didn't want me to use this shot because she thinks it makes her look like the creature from the black lagoon.

    "What is this word, cull ?" Valentine wants to know.
  18. Mysterygirl's Floating-World

    Another reason why I can't bring myself to cull fry. They are my pets, I don't raise them for money. So far, nature ( and unfortunately my inexperience) has taken care of it. Meaning that I haven't had to cull. I love to see their color changes. Vanilli is still working on becoming orange. Perhaps a photo of her next.

    Valentine I wish I had posted this on Valentine's Day. Little Valentine is a year old and look at her color changes! She's such a cutie right now. Weighing in at 18 grams.....Valentine! One year ago....
  20. Zechariah and Goldfish

    Shannon and TD, Glad you're back in the goldfish arena after the tragic raccoon/pond incident. And Justine leads the way.
  21. Hi KokoNuts, I was looking for 10g of Praziquantel powder and couldn't find it on the Internet. I ended up emailing a factory that produces it in China - min. order 10g. I see 50g (treats 5000 gallons) for sale on Amazon, but no less. I may call my cat vet and try to make a deal.
