  1. My local aquatics only every had white clouds in the coldwater section, they must have read this thread because they now have zebra danios there too..
  2. I plan, always have.. it goes as follows.. Go to pet store, no intention of a purchase.. Love strikes.. Walk out with new fish.. Realise I need a new tank. I try hard not too but it?s always the same..
  3. He's cute, he looks like he has been blown up like a balloon or swallowed a golf ball..
  4. I had this decision to make, i finally chose small gravel. My reasons were larger rocks could be more difficult to clean, and for me planting into small gravel was alot easier.
  5. Where i buy my fish from they have bright yellow commons, hopefully i will be working there next week, as i applied for a job there, i will try and take some photos, there really pretty, and bright, if i had room i would have one or two..
  6. Buying new fish cheers me up no end, shame i can't buy new ones everyday, Congratulations..
  7. I need a delete button, sorry for all posts.
  8. Is your fish the one in the photo, the reason i ask is both my lionheads seem to be quite prone at knocking scales of on top..
  9. White clouds are more coldwater than tropical.
  10. LOL, both my little lionheads are like that, they both love eating off my hand, for the size they swim fast, but at feeding time they go nuts..
  11. Hello all, this no net access is killing me, will sort soon. I haven't yet bought a butterfly plec, just considered one as a algae controller and they look cute, as will plant the tank. The white clouds that currently live in the tropical tank were intended to go with goldfish but they died. So i thought about moving them upstairs and putting some other fish downstairs. So it was either white clouds or plec, not both. As i want my to lionheads to be happy fish, not overstocked, i with leave the white clouds in a bucket next to the cold water tank for 6 or so hours to help them acclimitize.
  12. I know exactly how you feel, i nearly gave up after loosing my first three fishes to ich, two comets and one shubunkin, ready to give up, and stick with tropicals i fell in love with a lionhead, thank god she's been fine, its so hard to continue when you have such bad luck, i found its just luck if you get a healthy fish. Sorry for your losses.
  13. Does anyone know how large butterfly plecs grow? And will the white clouds be ok going from tropical to coldwater?
  14. I finally got my new tank for my lionhead, she was quite happy in a 10 gallon, but i spotted her twin but a different color, so i got a 22 gallon, well 84 litres, so not quite sure of us conversion. So i will have two lionheads in there, however i have 5 white cloud minnows that currently live in a tropical tank at 24c, could i move them into the cold water tank, will they be ok adjusting. Now my other option was regarding algae, as i plan to plant up, was a butterfly plec. So can i add either of these.
  15. One of my tanks is barebottom, the one thing i found is my fish love to root, so i stuck some gravel in one corner, keeps them happy, but still mainly barebotoom..
  16. I used that a while back, it?s the stuff that?s supposed to add good bacteria, yes, and I just added it to the tank weekly, as per instructions. I have to say for me it seemed to speed the cycle up.
  17. see my other thread.. http://www.kokosgoldfish.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=25052
  18. Ok to clear it up, i do the one tablespoon per 5 US gallons. which to me is 0.01%, well i used half that, i know that tired feeling Sandy, should have gone to bed ages ago.
  19. O then i meant 0.005%, have of the normal dosage.
  20. Its .05, half .1%, i didn't know that about adding straight to the water, hope she will be ok, as i have added it already. Doc Walshs Aquarium Salt, suggest as a tonic for stress..
  21. My ramshorn snails eat algae but not much as their babies..
  22. I also salted the water, .05, just to help keep stress down, now she's eating it, well, i think she is spitting it back out, hope it doesn't harm, or will it.
