  • How many Goldfish
    6
  1. Goldfish can handle the change in your room temperature. It is true that the temperature will fluctuate less in a larger tank. But a change of few a few degrees in your tank is nothing and won't harm them at all.
  2. 8 goldfish and koi in a 10 gallon tank isn't a problem. All you need to do is a 100% water change three times a day until the fish grow so big that there is no room left for the water.
  3. I got mine at a rummage sale for $3.00 Here's one on ebay that looks like mine http://www.ebay.com/itm/CyberPower-Surge-Protecter-CP550SL-/111000130918?pt=US_Uninterruptible_Power_Supplies&hash=item19d81f9566
  4. I have a surge protector that contains a battery. So when my power goes out my filters continue to run on the battery in the surge protector.
  5. As long as man didn't contaminate the water supply that water is fine. It would be about the same as the water in the lakes and streams in the area.
  6. I haven't heard of the bacteria issue but when I got into keeping shrimp it was stressed to use only cold water and let it warm up before putting it into the shrimp tank. Because warm water that goes though the hot water heater contains some metals that are harmful to shrimp. This is why I got the Kold ster IL water filter. For your drinking water it's important to have a water filter. There are things in our water that you don't even want to know about. If you don't have a water filter YOU ARE the water filter. I also have a filter on my shower head. Have you ever took a hot show and felt a little light headed and thought it was because the was hot? It wasn't the temperature of the water. The steam from our chlorinated water contains chlorine gas which is what the Nazis used to exterminate millions of Jews. http://homewaterfiltersheadquarters.com/ http://harmonyhealth.wordpress.com/2008/01/23/hot-showers-are-very-dangerous-to-your-health/
  7. You can find some good deals on plants on http://www.aquabid.com/
  8. You can get a 500 gallon stock tank at a farm supply store for A LOT less than $500.
  9. Sumps are usually used with salt water tanks. While it could be beneficial in a goldfish tank it's not really needed.
  10. It won't harm your fish. I wouldn't bother cleaning the hoses unless seeing it bothers you. I don't clean mine.
  11. Have you been feeding newly hatched brine shrimp? It could be just the picture but he looks thin.
  12. The goldfish will start eating the eggs almost right away but they might miss some.
  13. how do I do this? Add eight table spoons of aquarium salt to 1 gallon of conditioned water. Put in an air stone. Add brine shrimp eggs and in around 24 to 36 hours the eggs will hatch.
  14. The best thing to feed fry is newly hatched brine shrimp. You could hatch a batch of brine shrimp so you know what your doing when the fry come.
  15. It's safe to put older fry with younger fry as long as the younger fry are too big to eat.
