Aloha from Hawaii. I was a goldfish owner years ago until they died at my neglect. It's taken me years to even think about raising more goldies, but I'm willing to try. My problem was I didn't know how to deal with the daily climate changes that affected my fish, because I am near the equator. It can be 90% humidity w/ 80 degrees at night, and the next day be 65 degrees. I did massive research on water care, and was vigilant about my fish, but alas, one morning, there are black spots on my little guys and died that day. I buried them, through out everything, and vowed never to look at another fish again. I felt so guilty.
Is there any way that I can discuss with somebody in Hawaii on this forum, who is familiar with our unique weather problems here? I've gone to local fish stores but haven't received much help.
