  1. Love the mohawk look of her dorsal fin! and the matching eye shadow! She could hang out with Tacocat.

    How fun, more fish! That pearl is going to be a beauty when it grows bigger.

    So far on the 75 gallon plants revamp

    You must be pleased, it's looking good. Can't wait to see it when it all fills out.
  7. Hi Dawn, Need to post some updated photos. Lost the first round of plants. Then lost several fish to ich. Then a massive algae bloom. Now it's seems to be settling down. Still playing around with the fertilizer to keep the plants healthy and not feed the algae too much. My black moor, Prospero, is looking great. I think the UV filter was the best purchase yet. Just got a pleco. He's tiny but doing well. Had to go back to work full time so I've been swamped but starting to think about adding two more fancies again once I set up the QT properly. I posted photos when I got the second round of plants. Some have died off again and the vale melted but are just making a comeback now. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/122850-goldfish-zen-tank-round-ii/ I need to do a bit of plant maintenance this weekend. Then I'll try to take a few shots. The marimo has been doing great around the bases of the rocks. Thanks for the comments :-) I miss being on here daily and seeing everyone's fish. kathleen

    Hello from North Carolina!

    Oh My! Hoping for the best!

    Well, I'm just the opposite. Of the three fish I got ONLY the black moor survived! So I'll pass on some good black moor juju. Ha ha
  11. Hope your fish gets better soon

    Q about ich treatment

    Thank you. I was a bit bummed Celestine was so friendly and always curious. I feel sorry for Prospero. He doesn't see well and he bonded with Celestine. He followed her everywhere :-( I wish I had caught the ich sooner. I just seemed to pop up one AM and it was all over her. Once we get through this, I'll be looking at a better source for fish. After killing off my expensive plants I was wary of spending a lot on the fish since I'm a newbie. Now I get that it would have been better to find a better fish store. I've researched a couple in Seattle that have a good rep. I'll also get a GH KH test kit, just in case that was a factor. The Hamburg Matten Filter and the plants really keep the parameters down. They've always been 0 across the board since the tank cycled. I still change the water because it needs a good vacuum every week.

    Q about ich treatment

    Thanks everyone. At least I know i'm doing the right thing. Forgot to say I have an air stone going on high in the tank. This forum is fantastic for all the info and looking through past posts to find similar situations.
