  1. I apreciate ur advice. And I didn't know about the hard shell foods. Sounds like these lil guys r going to be a challege. I am up for it tho. so wish me luck. SO far the Barbs r holding there own. But I also figured if I kept there little bellies full then we won't have any problems with them killing off my tank. but no worries tho I know not to over feed them. And I did read somewhere that figure 8 puffers r one of the only breed of puffers that will thrive in brackish as well as freshwater. They were purchaced in a freshwater tank and my tank is freshwater. So I dunno. Maybe that artical was wrong but so far they seem to be doing well. But of course I am no expert.
  2. Okey I recently got a new tank and I had a pretty good idea what fish I wanted to put in it. I have 4 tiger barbs that I had gotten to put in my 55 gal only to realize that they weren't the idea tank mates for the current inhabitats. Anyways while I was shopping I saw these super cute Figure 8 Puffer fish. Not knowing anything about them...and beleveing the fishes bio that said it was a semi agressive fish that get along with plates, Mollies, Diminos, barbs exc.....Upon bring the two puffers home I quickly figured out that they were more AGRESSIVE then the fish guy lead on....within 10 mins they had killed my poor little pink Glo-fish... SO now I am a lil lot as to what to put in there. So far the Barbs r doing fine. But its a large tank so I wanted to add other tank mates? Any ideas? Also what about Blood Parrots Ciclids? Would they make a good take mate? I'd appreciate any advice or help u may have. thank u!
  3. No the tiger barbs r in another tank....and the frogs are lil tiny frogs they won't get big at all..... and no I didn't qt her....I haven't qt ne of the fish I have gotten. And frankly the thought never crossed my mind. Altho now that I think about it I should have.... I appreciate all of your help. And hopefully all of your helpful advise will help her come outta this just fine. And in the future I will be alot more careful next time when bringing home a new baby...
  4. So any thought as to what I should do about the fasting the goldies....are the other fish at risk??
  5. Yah there in there with the goldies.....so far they r fine...they were supose to be lunch for the angels that onces housed that tank but have sence passed away...so I am not so much attached to them...so it wouldnt bother me if they were lunch...as for the frog they pretty much keep to themselves and hide under things so I am not to worried....
  6. Oo PS: Okey so I read the section on the poop because I knew that was the next logical step....AND acording to what was described....I am thinking it might be constapation....now the course of action was stop feeding for 3 days then only peas my issue is he isn't alone he has several different tank mates I kno it won't matter if the other goldies go threw the whole process but what about the frogs and the lil neons and diminos? Will they die if they don't eat for 3 days as well? And also should I maybe use a brodspectrum antibiodic just incase its something else? I mean I'd rather be save then sorry.....what do u sugjest?

  8. Okey yah....I noticed like 2 days ago that her poop was long stringy clear and it took a while to release....but I atribuated that too her being maybe constapated or something.....Could it also mean something else?Okey yah....I noticed like 2 days ago that her poop was long stringy clear and it took a while to release....but I atribuated that too her being maybe constapated or something.....Could it also mean something else?
  9. Okey see..I noticed that....but I didn't think it was an issue because other then that he seems to be okey he adapted well/...and eats fine/....But I have noticed that she does seem to have problems swmming like she might have a bloaty tummy I thinking I should get her some peas to munch on.... I was really concerned about buying her because like I said before the store had literally just openeded which man she wosn't in that tank long/....and I dunno were she was before that....but I had no idea a clamped dorsal fin was a warning sign......other then giving her some peas do u have any other sugestions.....I don't want nething to happen to her and I'd rather prepare for the worst vs not being prepared at all........
  10. OOOO and the name I have chosen is Princess Tiger Lilly because she looks like a princess!!!
  11. Okey so I was lucky enough to find this beautiful baby at an Aquarium store that was just opening like litterally they were just unloading there stock of fish when I walked in the door.....I walked around and was about to leave when I noticed a small dark lit tank far in the back courner...and thats when I saw her..but the tank wosn't marked and the guy only refered to her as a goldfish (I am only assuming she is a girl of course) neways I thought for sure she'd be expensive...$25.00 $30.00 at the most...and the guy said oh lets say 9.00.....my jaw dropped I was like ummm yah I will take her....So as far as I kno she isn't a gold oranda because of the spots and of course she isn't chocolate....so I have no idea I have never seen nething quiet like her before...so I was wondering if you guys might have a clue!!!! thank you for your help.....no name yet but its comming soon lol...it needs to be perfect!! <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b338/BuriedAlive55/DSC00509.jpg"> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b338/BuriedAlive55/DSC00510.jpg"> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b338/BuriedAlive55/DSC00511.jpg"> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b338/BuriedAlive55/DSC00512.jpg">
  12. Thank you for your kind words! THey really do make me feel much better! I think if u arn't a fish lover u cannot truely understand what it feels like to loose one of ur babies!!! SO at least I kno from u guys they arn't just words they are meaning ful!! Thank guyz!!
  13. First I would like to thank everyone for all your quick and helpful advice..with my problem with Gilmore...For those who didn't read my mnay posts...Gilmore started out with having a bloated belly....he was acting fine just a little rounded.....so the helpful fokes on here said he was constapated so I tried the peas he didn't like that! So I bought the Daphnia and I fasted him for 3 days then gave him the food....HE seemed ok but still no movement with his bowels...So 1 week later I decided to post pix of him....thats when the ppl on here realized that no it wosn't constapation at all in fact he had DROPSY!! my heart sank.....They told me how to treat it...so I went to work...I dosed the tank with Epson salt and then I got the antibacterial! But it was to late.....3 days later....MY baby boy lost his fight! I only wished that I could have posted pix sooner then maybe I could have saved him................. How we met..... I went to a local pet store...you know one of the ones thats like a one stop shop u can buy dogs cats bla bla bla (not really the best stores!!) But yah....I was looking at there fishies and then I saw this stand of nothing but bettas in funky jars of all shapes sizes and colors.....I noticed in the way back there was this sad lil white betta..and I was like r u kidding a white betta SCORE.....so I was like I'll take that one...so I got him home put him in this lil 1/2 gal (don't worry that only lasted a few weeks) tank I got for him....So I set it up and well a few weeks later I realized that my GIlmore wosn't a white betta like I thought he was really a gorgiously colored lil guy......so I was like wow I guess I saved this lil guy......He soon made me realize just how fun bettas can be.....he had such personality he would shake his fins so fast when he saw me and he'd follow my finger he was amazing!! I had him for 1 year and 4 months.....I will never forget that gorgious boy!! He was the best betta I have ever met!!! Take care of those lil critters while u have them.....becasue they arn't on this earth for long....Word to the wise and the newbies...if u are going to have fish u need to have a digital camera that cam could have saved Gillies life....and always have antibiodic on hand!!! Again thanx for ur prays and u helpfulness in ym time of need I won't ever forget it....I just wish it could have saved Gilmore!! R.I.P Gilmore!!
  14. U got it!!! Keep my lil Gillie in ur prayers!!
