  1. Miss Mountain,the big tank is now the home of all of my other fish, except for the Betta.I think they will enjoy it.
  2. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice post. Down deep, I knew that Gracie was not savable, but she died in my wife's hand while she was trying to get her to eat a tiny piece of pea. Just like that, alive and then dead. What a shock that it was so sudden. I was prepared for three weeks of medicating and had bought the MetroPlex to last. Bought a 10 gallon tank which was easier to use as a sick tank. All the best laid plans of men and mice.... I will not be getting any more Gold Fish Helen. I would say, I have not had much luck with them. The little fish will enjoy the large tank. Thank you again. Allan
  3. Thank you, I do appreciate it. BTW, your two fish on your avatar are beautiful, and one of them, the dark one looks like one of the three we started with. He was the first to leave, only a week or so with us.
  4. She was beautiful. She died while my wife was trying to feed her. It happened very fast. I feel a sense of loss that is usually reserved for our dogs when they die. She just stopped breathing. BTW, she was not in melafix in this new tank, just salt and metroplex. We did our best for Gracie, it just was not good enough. So sorry for your loss. It sounds like you did your best to try and help her. She was a pretty fish. I guess she was pretty, but she was friendly which was why she was special to us. She actually had a personality. Last night I was devastated, but I feel better now.We will bury her in the spring, when the ground is soft. Just could not get ourselves to flush her. She left her home, the 40 gallon tank, to her tropical cousins, so that is the end of our GF times. Too much personality for fish that are so hard to keep alive. I will check in once a while, but only as a former GF owner.
  5. Thank you, that is very kind of you. I am one of those weird men who values all forms of life, so I can understand how you felt about your snail. I would like to get one for a companion to our Betta, but I am afraid they might die, and I would not know it until it was too late.
  6. We have two 10 gallon tanks with Tropicals. One has 3 zebras and 2 cories, and the other 2 male guppies and 4 neon tetras. We are considering putting all of them into the 40 gallon tank.There are small pond snails too, although the Cories would eat them pretty fast. I don't know if I would be comfortable with that. Yes, I worry even about snails.
  7. Thank you. Now we have to decide what to do with our purpose bought 40 gallon tank. I don't think a GF is in the works. Too many water changes. We started with three a few months ago, actually in was 2/7/15, and now there are none.

  9. No, and neither could my wife, but if you could do me a favor by going to FB and maybe you could. I tried but after copying it, it would go away when I left clicked in order to go to this forum.100 04361
  10. Yes, i get that, but youtube is free too and I shared it to my facebook page, and at that point, I don't know how to post it to Koko.
  11. Now Gracie is back on her back, totally upside down. It seems more comfortable to her than being on her side. Nobody, it seems has watched my video, or at least have not mentioned it. Tomorrow morning will try to feed her a little bit of a pea. If she won't eat, I don't know what else to do.
  12. I got a short video on my FB page, but I don't know what to do next. Could you just look at it there? Or maybe I could friend you and share it. My real name is Allan Birmantas.
  13. Easier said than done. I am extremely low tech. Will try as soon as I can.
