    RIP Icicle :'(

    Rest in peace Icicle. Such a beautiful fish, and I thought your naming scheme was very clever. I'm so sorry for your loss of your fishy friends, Fishofgold.

    My first try at DIY gel food for my Orandas

    Congrats Kovi, When you see how much they like it and you're getting good results - all that effort is its own reward. Check out my blog where I make gel food with edamame.

    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.

    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?

    Goldfish Of The Week Winner "mysterygirl"

    Thanks all. My little single tails! I just find them beautiful, and I'm glad if you do too.
  15. 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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
  24. 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.
