  4. Chris here... You can try.... but, it's soooooo not happening...
  5. Chris here... Thanks Mikayla... ๐Ÿ˜Š. There is a photo section under the Goldfish topic fifth choice down... Lots and lots of pretty Fishys there... ๐Ÿ˜‰
  6. Chris here... Oh!!! what a wonderful surprise... As I shared before this is Buster... He was a recent purchase from Zhaoโ€™s Goldfish Shop. He is becoming very special to me... While he was in quarantine, I experienced a devastating loss in my tank... Very sad... I wonโ€™t go into details but he is helping recover from the loss.... We (my Hubby & I) have discovered Buster has a huge tendency to get into trouble... The some time during the fist night in the tank (post Quarantine) he managed to get himself stuck between the heater and skimmer... My Hubby rescued him at oโ€™dark thirty in the morning... Busterโ€™s side that was in contact with the heater was very damaged... I thought I was going to loose him too... I used a topical antibiotic sealant on the injury (it worked miracles) and the injury started healing almost immediately... The very next night Buster got himself stuck in a jar that was holding down some media in the back corner of the tank... He got in but couldnโ€™t figure out how to get out.... My Hubby again rescued him at oโ€™dark thirty in the morning... I immediately went thru the tank to find absolutely anything that, that stinker could get in trouble with and removed it... Needless to say every morning we check the tank to make sure he doesnโ€™t need to be rescued... So far he hasnโ€™t found anything else to get in trouble with... The picture was taken just after his second rescue... ( his good side, at least until his scales grow back on the othe side) Thank you for asking about him and of course for honoring him with the photo award... Hugs, Chris

  8. Santa brought me a bigger tank!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi! Chris here... Here is the finished layout of the tank... Iโ€™m sure it will evolve over time, but for now this is as good as it gets.... My boys think they are interior decorators... every time I turn around the are rearranging glass pebbles and plants...I guess they think they have a better idea... Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Santa brought me a bigger tank!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi! Chris here... I have turned both filters down to the lowest setting and now going to purchase control valves for the air lines to the sponge filters... to quiet the water... ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰. Soooo much to figure out with a new tank... ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  13. Santa brought me a bigger tank!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    Chris here.... Houston we have a problem...๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. The AC70โ€™s (2) May be enough filtration along with the 2 sponge filters... But they donโ€™t fit on the rim of the tank! ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–... Not a good thing, especially since I found out mid transfer from tank to tank... Got one to hang on temporary till this morning and have to run out and upgrade to 2 AC110โ€™s... They fit perfectly... So now Iโ€™m over filtered again... Oh, darn.... Iโ€™m never ever getting a larger tank than this one!!! This one is huge!!! Itโ€™s amazing but huge... Iโ€™m going to have to really look at it for a while to how to lay everything out... but definitely stay mostly bare bottom... but for now itโ€™s a work in progress... ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
