  1. Your fish look nice and healthy to me,they seem to be pretty big, What i do when refilling my tank is use a big chip bag clip to hold my python to the plastic tank edge so the water pours into the tank.This way i do not have to stand there holding the hose,just make sure it is on secure. I'm sure your fish are fine.
  2. Thanks for the info tinkokeshi.ill give that a try soon,now for the pic taking,which will prove harder i think lol.

    Big Fish

    We are thinking the same koko,if there is more volume of water per fish and more space,water quality would be much better,less stress on the fish,less chance of disease...and much happier for us lol.I have a tiny bit of gravel barely covering the bottom and i do two water changes a week.Alot of people at first think its such a huge tank and little fish,but not for long,goldfish can and will get huge,that 55 will look small in no time...
  4. Im not sure if my aquatic pic taking will be all that good lol,but how do you go about adding pics onto the site?

    Big Fish

    Actually when you take into the equation if you have decorations and gravel etc,there is less than 55 gallons all together,so 5 is to many,i have 4 in a 72 and would not add anymore..
  6. I know this is a older subject,but i was told today by a person from nanananananan that they are going to stop selling fish,all of the chains will not have fish anymore,this is good news i think,as they should never had them in the first place...
  7. I ended up picking up four todayand took my pleco back to the lfs,as my tank dont get direct sunlight so i see no need for him.I got a black moor with amazing flowing tail,two redcap orandas,and a ryukin.I think im going to go with 5 now and keep the extra space open for when i find a beautiful calico as i really like those.They seem to be settling in fine and i usually do two 25 to 40% water changes a week,with one gravel vac,hope this will work out good....
  8. actually after having a crayfish for some years,i was debating on buying a 400 gallon and trying out the salt water lobsters,but how could i resist them in my tank lol.Sadly these lobsters never made it to far.
  9. Hey chrissy nice to chat again lol.5 would be great in my tank and will sure fill it up,but i may settle for 4,this will keep the water quality much better and allow me more decorations in there,thanks guys..
  10. Hi guys,havnt been on here for a while,i went to chcilids,but no matter what i try,cant keep them from killing one another,and im really not into that kind of fish keeping,so back to goldfish which i always enjoyed keeping.I have a 72 gal bowfront with one spotted pleco,orange spotted i think,how many fancies would you guys keep in this tank?Filter is a eheim 2,2028..
  11. Great job on the tank stand,im a master craftsman and this is impressive,only thing i can see is you didnt use the original doors,these doors are a different wood grain,but lovin it just the same.Now your making me want to get a project going lol.
  12. crush,you are right its those in your link,since they only get to 2 inches i was thinking about a couple and they can thrive in colder water,also im a guy lol.
  13. i keep my tank at 24 degrees using a heater .
  14. I have a 29 gal with one fancy goldfish,i really dont want to add another because of the waste load,i have two filters running,a 200 and a 150,do 50 percent water changes once a week.Can i add a couple of those rosey reds that i see at big als,they sell them as feeders there,they kinda look like small goldfish.
  15. For me personally i tend to not even go by the usual 10 gallon rule.I had 2 fancies in a 29 gallon,did 50 percent water changes once a week,had 2 filters running,a 200 and a 150 ,still there were loads of waste in my tank each weak,also i only fed them once a day.Goldfish are large waste producers and i think the rule for a big healthy goldfish should be one per 20 gallons.I have only one in the 29 now and my water is pristine and he is growing each day i think,this is just my experience that i have had.
