  1. Hi Everyone, are there any Australian members who know where to buy Repashy Soilent Green here in Oz? I keep visiting the Repashy Australian website but they never have any in stock and when I email them I never get a reply. Amazon won't deliver it to Australia.
  2. Was researching food prices and sources tonight and saw there was a sale on Hikari at pet mountain. Thought I'd pass this along. http://www.petmountain.com/brands/42/1/hikari.html
  3. I was cross boarder shopping from Canada to US and was excited to find Omega One Veggie micro pellets. Is this a good thing to supplement goldfish diets with? My baby oranda is maybe 2 inches with tailfin included. I am waiting for my repashy to come in that ordered but I was able to find Nutrafin sinking pellets locally - even those seem almost too big for her! But she's a trooper I was also pretty excited to hit the last day of the $1 per gallon sale at Petco. Her new permanent home will be set up shortly
  4. Two Orandas (about 2-3 inch each including tail) I have, Hikari Lionhead Mini pellet Food. Saki-Hikari Fancy Goldfish Food. I know the "2 Minute Rule" but how many actual sinking pellets do I feed them?? How many times a day? How many times a week?
  5. Ever since Hikari down graded their food to little more than wheat and useless filler ( I have a review regarding this issue some where around here) I've been using Omega 1 Goldfish sinking pellets as a supplemental food to the diet I feed my fish. I picked up some Omega Betta food and was alarmed to see the formula included "Ethoxyquin" which was listed as preservative. It's not a preservative - Ethoxyquin is a pesticide and it's lethal. I immediately checked the ingredients on the Omega 1 Gold Fish food and there it was listed as a "Preservative" Ethoxyquin has been controversial, it's been used in low quality dog and cat food for years to prevent fats from becoming rancid which is exactly what vitamin E does. So I did hours of research and here are the facts. The FDA has issued a warning that Ethoxyquin destroys the liver and enforced a minimum allowance of 775/PPM yet many pet food manufacturers continue to use it and ignore the FDA warning.Ethoxyquin stores in the liver and compromises liver function over time, it's deadly stuff - period. Ethoxyquin is considered dangerous for any animal food by the following agencies: *The FDA *The National Pesticide Information council *The Natural Resources Defense Council *The Veterinary Pesticide Portal What is more, a study you can find on Wikipidea and link to - concludes that Ethoxyquin is lethal to fish. Here's the link: http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Ethoxyquin Ironically, the food has excellent ingredients - whole fish by name salmon, halibut and others. Plus lot's of high end quality ingredients.Why Omega Sea chose to compromise such a well balanced food with a known and lethal pesticide is beyond me. I have written Omega Sea four times over three weeks. Not a single response - why? because they can't possibly justify it. I would urge anyone to stop immediately if you're currently using this food. If you're not - avoid it like the plague as it will in time, kill your fish.
  6. Last night was pea night...I'd been away since Friday night, so they had fasted 24 hours when I got home. I defrosted 5 peas in the microwave and smushed them out of their shells. The fish were so desperate for food , that I forgot to make some of them into small pieces. Fluffy hoovered up 2 or 3 before they hit the bottom and was madly chewing. The littles attacked the pieces as they fell. Jelly (the smallest goldie) grabbed one piece and managed to break it into two halves and started munching. Emma Goldman scooped up the other half. Hercule Poirot, managed to snag the biggest piece of pea. It was so big that he couldn't chew it, but he wouldn't let go of it to get a better hold. He was chewing and chewing, but couldn't really make any progress. He was swimming around with a big pea sticking out from his mouth. Finally I took pity on him, and put my hand in the water and grabbed the pea from him. Then I fed it to him in smaller pieces....He's still afraid of my hand, so I eventually had to drop it in front of him. It made me realize that I haven't trained the new fish to eat out of my hand. That's something that I'll need to do soon. On other news, my Valentine's Day present was waiting for me when I met up with sweetie on Friday. It's a new 48" light fixture with 2 T8 bulbs and blue led's. It's the same as Shawnee and Ashlee have. I can hardly wait to set it up. I think the plants are going to love it.
