  1. I have been keeping my two black moor for the past years. One had one its eye dislodged sometimes ago but is fine now. But the other one, i noticed that it started to bent and or some sort of shrink between its tail and stomach. Both of them likes to stay motionless for hours at the bottom of the tank and only would move when i tapped lightly on the tank. Can anyone tell me is this normal?
  2. Some says that there should be 9 goldies in the tank, 8 gold and 1 black. I wonder if the sucker (black coloured) count as one.....???? <_<
  3. WIth all the fung shui stuff of do's and dont's, it does really gives a bit of headache if space is limited. Anyway, i once experience a true incident whereby i think it involves a bit of fung shui or supertitious on them fishes. It was said that that keeping fishes as pets can ward off bad luck or illness or even certain death. My uncle had kept 5 goldies in his house and one day he was warded for having stroke and the doctor said it was serious. His family thought for the worse but when he pulled through after a few days and was send home, his family was shocked to see the goldies had died the very same day . I would put it to them goldies having been neglected for the past few days ,not being feeded and so on but my niece vowed that she had not neglected the goldies. One year later, the same thing happened, my uncle had another stroke and the process repeated. My unckle recovered , went home and discover the repleced goldies died again. Two same occurence.....??? It may seem strange and unbelieveable but it was said that the fishes had taken the brunt of the bad luck or illness off it owners. But sad to say that the third time my uncle was admitted, there was not to be a repeat of same and my uncle died. I guess the suffering was just too great for him. Some of you may not believe it but anyway this is just for your info only as there might be logical explaination on the happenings which i may have not noticed.
  4. Hi everyone....! It's been a few months since i lock on to this site again. Just wondering whether any of you thought of placing an aquarium anywhere in your homes would affect your luck . Some says it indirectly affect your mood or the good flow of air in your homes. I'm no that suspicious but has anyone thought it before.....out of curiorsity...?
  5. tried carrots b4 but them fishes dun seem to like it at all....
  6. wow...! it seems that more n more wacky food stuff is hitting the food menu...!
  7. generally speaking, it seems that majority of goldies owner are against feeding them unlikely foods. I would like to keep me fishes as healthy as possible so that they can live to a long ripe age happily.! from all the responses and opinions, it would seem practical to stick tried and tested fish foods for good!. B)
  8. well, it seems that a lot goldies owner are put off by the thought of feeding them fishes with ticks and flees..... It's not a good idea anyway... Any way, speaking about exotic foods....ahem... how about flies then?
  9. correction...i joined this site sometimes in May'05.
  10. The said topic, if i remember correctly, was posted sometimes in april when i first joined up on this site . I find it weird though feeding those unhealthy food to the good ol fishes. I have two dogs at home and naturally, they do have some flees and ticks and it came back to me on topics about dog flees and ticks. Dun worry. i wont be feeding such foods to my goldies.....
  11. It's been a while since visit this site. Heavy work schedule. Sometimes ago, i read a topic that goldfish can eat about just anything, say like feeding them dog flees or tick? I know it's not healthy to feed them to fishes but just out of curiorsity, i wonder if any of you had done such things???
  12. You mean all the dirt gather in the filter was push back into the water...someething like that?
  13. I did not check on the water stats. This changes in water condition happens twice b4 and in both times the fishes were ok.
  14. When there was power black out, the water in my tank started to turn milky white after say two hours. I wonder what is it it ??? The fishes in the tank look normal in the water except they tend to slow down a bit but otherwise are like i say , they are just normal. Can anyone enlighten what causes the water to turn milky white?? After power was restore and the filter running again, i then noticed that the water seem to tuen less milky and you know what, the next morning, it became clear again. Is it normal...??? <_<
  15. I don't think the pleco (about 5 in in size) is the culprit. It does not bother any other fishes and it keep to itself very much and only ventures for food when necessary. In short, it is a very quiet fish. Further observation on my two black moors, it seems that their eye ball are so protuding that the might explode out themselves..... i really hope not. The eye that was missing, i cuold not find it anywhere... When the black moor had lost one of its eye and with it dangling from the eye socket, i noticed that the other fishes were gathering a distance away as if they can hear the poor moor crying out. My first thought was to catch the moor and try to place the eye back hoping that it would heal itself in time but i did not do so as it such a sight that i really feel hurtfull..... :crp Anyhow, i will be watching the pleco like a hawk as advised and also any other creepy sign from the other goldies.
