  1. Someone help return her to normal. I just noticed it a little while ago. How do I cure it? Answer as soon as possible. Please I don't want her to die.
  2. Well it seems I have better luck at fantails, commons, comets, and koi than I do Telecope eyes. the new guy is a bit bigger than lilly and has the most beautiful shade of orange and black I've ever seen. His fins all have a black stripe at the top, two black spots on his checks and a few black scales on his sides. His orange is so dark it reminds me of a lighted orange light that swims! His name is either Tiger (from winnie the pooh) or Sunspot. Which do you like?
  3. I'm sorry lovely goldfish I had to reply. Who would eat a goldfish? Honestly? I've heard you can eat koi, but thats just sick and wrong also. I'm a kindhearted fellow and every animal I meet I can get to like me. If you ask me, this was a bad topic to post. I'm officially mad now. Oh and happy april fools day everybody.
  4. My groucho grew to 4 inches within a 8 months and 2 inches longer 5months. She was only an inch and a half when I got her from the fair.
  5. The trick is that only you feed them. After they know it's you feeding them you'll create a bond with them. Then they'll trust you enough and come to the surface for you. Well Groucho, Marks, and Max ( short for Maxine) are going crazy so it's feeding time. Be right back.
  6. Plunging my head in the water. Bobbing for goldfish anyone? It feels really wierd when they do it at that size, almost like two little vacums getting turned on and off really really fast aginst it.
  7. I stuck my nose above the water and I got to close and it went in. The next thing I know, they're but up there nibbling at my nose! It was so cute.
  8. Thanks everybody. I'm hopefuly gonna get into art my sophmore year. I was gonna sketch lilly in the background, but she wasn't asleep and was constantly moving around.
  9. Cursing is not allowed filmstar. I don't want you in trouble.
  10. Mud pies galore. Dirtying up the tank is another reason why I don't give them worms with dirt in them.
  11. The answer is that I don't know how thier digestive system would react to dirt in thier diet and that they could get sick from it. I've never tried dirt so I don't know what would happen. Though it never hurts to be safe. Right?
  12. Thanks everyone. But unfortunetly I don't have a camera yet , though I did a sketch of him. It's pretty good if you ask me. I'll have it up tonight. No scanners at school
  13. Oh yeah. Those two just can't stay away from each other.
  14. I dont need to worry about the ground being poisoned( we're not big farmers ) night crawlers are earthworms( I think) so after they rid them selves of dirt. I'll put them in the freezer.( to humanely kill them) and then feed them later on, after being cut up. They also get a different kind of worm. Tubifex worms.
  15. I got a new goldfish. I'ts name Koko. ( Because he's blackish like brown and the name is to honor the website.
  16. They're about the size of my hand in lenght.
  17. What do you do to the earthworms before feeding to your fish? Gut them? Also what size is appropiate to feed to your fish?
  18. They do have more than a 3 second memory. How else could they recognize you and come to the surface to be feed? Also those fish they had there were beautiful. Comets I think.
  19. I think Comets, Shubunkins, and Commons grow the largest, though Bruces type may grow the largest. By the way what type is he? Oranda?
  20. Looks like your fish have decoration setting issues Where did you find these shells?
  21. Also if they are I wonder how many gallons they would need?
  22. I read in a goldfish book that said this " Minnows have the same nutritional requirements as goldfish and get along really well with them and can be keeped together." Is this true?, or is someone lying.
  23. Her swimming is starting to get a little bit off ( probably due to an undersized tailfin) when she turns she's almost completely on her side. Atfirst I thought she was dying, but then I realized it was the way she swam that made it look like that. The water is crystal clear and the filter barely has anything in it ( poop) so I know it's not ammonia. She's healthy as she can be and just as fast too. Her mouth is still crooked when she eats. I imagine it will stay like that for the rest of her life. Her scales have gotten really shiney and round stomach makes her look like a marble with fins. ( so cute) . Nothing is wrong from what I can see, I'll keep you updated later on if her turnig gets any better or worse.
