  1. Hello everyone, hope everybody is having a Merry Christmas!!! I need help, I have 6 little juveniles calico orandas that I can’t keep them more longer, they are from 1-3 inch. Right now they are in a 40 breeder with good filtration and aeration. They are very healthy they eat normal and every day like the other in my main tank, I feed them NLS Thera A, green peas, Jappies growth recipe and everyday balance, along with other greens. I have them since July this year. Most important I didn’t breed them, they are from a local breeder from my area in New Jersey, I got them because I was getting an indoor pond but unexpectedly had to move and the project failed. I don’t want to take the to my local fish store in first place, I wanted to see if a find a goldfish keeper that want them an will take are of them. PLEASE HELP!!! I’ll post some pics later today!!!

    Hole in her Fins???

    Hello, hello, hello everyone!!! Sorry for the absence all this time, I'm one that believes: "No News is a Good News" Anyways fishes are doing just great. I did 3 treatments of PraziPro, the root stopped completely and started to grow back in shape. I truly don't have an idea of what was it, the male Ranchu tht I have sometimes it get aggressive and I think it was him caused it but they were too big to be caused by a bite. I moved from apartment and the new place of the tank they getting much more sun light, will update a pic very soon... I am very thankful with everyone of you for sharing your knowledges with the ones in need (me) this is a very delicate hobby but with all your helps and knowing that you guys are here makes it very easy. I think tht way!!! Thanks you always!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I personally don't recommend it. I had some bad experiences with their fish, the customer sevice it's "alright" (not good). I bought 2 telescope one died two days after I received them (next day shipping) they replace it. Then the Second fish that I first bought died after a week, they offer to replace and asked me all details about the tank that I was keepin the fishes cuz that was "rare-weird" I didn't accept the replacement, the last fish died in less than a month. 3 "healthy" fishes in less than month??? And I was panicking and thought my tank was infected because of this... AFTER ALL:::: No Thanks. Not recommended at all. Good Luck!!!

So I don't know which of the girls lay eggs, they have eaten some but other some remains there, this indicate a water change to remove the eggs, My question is::: apply the PraziPro same dosis again after the water change??? Ps, I add the Prazi on Tuesday, it's only been 4 days... Thanks in advance!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes I do follow the instructions. I will check once I get home. 2-3 weeks quarantine. I thought it was enough since they come from the same breeder... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ok, guys for some reason I couldn't copy and paste to fill out the form, so here goes my shot to answer it! -TANK WATER- Ammonia level::: 0 Nitrite level::: 0 Nitrate level::: 0 Ph level::: 7.6 High Range Ph level::: 7.4 -TAP WATER- Ammonia level::: 0 Nitrite level::: 0 Nitrate level::: 0 Ph level::: 7.0 High Range Ph level::: 7.4 --Brand of test kit::: API Master freshwater, Drops. --Water temperature::: 76-78 (it never reach 80 neither lower then 75, but it variates cuz the room temperature) --Tank size and how long::: 75 gallons been running for 6 months, before that it was nuke and emptied for 2 months. (Few fishes had die in here before nuking, so crazy me thought that it was infected for new fishes, this was the reason for the nuke) --Name and size of filter::: Fluval FX6 ( when I nuke the tank this was nuke too and all media was new when I ensamble it 6 months ago) --Water changes::: Once a week (sundays) 95% --Last water change::: April 2, 95% (couldn't do it last nite) --Stock::: 3 in total. 1 Oranda about 7-8 in, and 2 Ranchus about 2-4 in... --Water additives::: Prime --Feeding::: NLS Thera A and NLS (can't remember the kind) I know I have 2 different. Mostly every day. Frozen Blood worms, Frozen Brine Shrimp, frozen peas and Soilent Green Gel food. Few times a week intervals. --New Fish::: the two Ranchus were added almost 2 months ago, with 2 weeks apart. (1 added than 2 weeks later added the 2). --Any medication::: NONE --Unusal findings:: root fins-frayed fins. (The reason we here!) --Unusual behavior::: none. Everyone is good, healthy, eating like crazy, and she's acting normal, like always, and come say hi to me at the top when I get close to the tank! [emoji23][emoji12] Extra Note::: sometimes I find the gulping in the top of the tank in a corner, (but I believe she's asking for food cuz when I hand feed her is usually the same spot where she gulp for air).. If more info need it, feel free... Thanks guys!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
