  1. My step-son inherited a pond when they bought their new house and he originally started with goldfish and some small koi, he has now moved up to buying large, expensive koi. He does not want to keep the Goldfish and small koi that he has, and actually there are a few larger koi as well. He only wants to keep the really expensive Japanese ones. I think there are about 10 goldfish ranging from 4 to 6 in and the koi are probably 6 or 7 in, with one or two being about 10 inches. So some of these are big enough that they should probably go in a pond and not a tank. I just wanted to see if anybody wants them for a pond or large tank because I don't know what he's going to do with them and I don't have room. They live north of Seattle but I would be willing to help transport to the right home. He has had these fish for about 2 months and all seem to be healthy. He may also be getting rid of a 7-inch pleco too. Let me know if you're interested.

  4. Moving house with fish

    I will be moving out of my parents house in a few weeks for university to somewhere roughly a 6 hour drive away. I have two goldfish and I’m wondering if it would be safe to take them with me on such a long journey and how I might go about it. It’s possible for me to leave them with my parents as they are willing to take care of them and i’ll be back every few months for holidays but i’d much rather take them with me if possible. How would I go about transporting my fish (one about 6cm /10 including tail the other a few cm smaller) on such a long journey??
  5. One pic per personPlease include a description or a caption of the photo.This contest is limited to goldfish and Koi that you now or have owned only please.First 10 pics go into the poll.Good luck
  6. Hey! I'm just kinda curious, is he just a fan tail with a more slender body? Doesn't he kind look like a wakin? His tail is quite short too
  7. Hi I have a question I'm going away on holiday for about 10 days next week. Because I live by myself there won't be anyone who can feed my single goldfish. I plan to buy a few moss balls as a kind of "natural holiday food" for the goldfish, rather than the usual holiday fish food one can buy in stores, which are generally quite poor quality. Would the goldfish be able to eat some of the moss ball and not go hungry? Thank you
  8. Recently my goldfish has been staying around in the bottom of the tank. I just did a water change and added in a new filter thinking it was ammonia poisoning or something, but nope my ammonia is almost perfect. I was also thinking I was overfeeding, about a week ago I did accidentally add a lot more food than I usually do, so today I have thrown in peas and hoping he will eat sometime. I was also thinking because a week ago I have been making a lot of noise in my room working on stuff and he may still be stressed out by it. Lastly maybe because I waited a little bit longer on my water change and did it in 3 weeks besides 2. But I don't know what is going on, if I move my net in the tank he moves and tries to get away from it. What I have in the 20g tank - I goldfish Narrow leaf Anacharis and some rocks. I am just trying to give as much info as I can, may someone help, and tell me if I need to do anything or just wait it out. *Btw* He has not lost color or anything in scales, looks healthy just sits at the bottom of the tank.
  9. Hello to all. I have two fantail goldfish in a 65 lt tank (20 gallons) for almost two years now with a HOB filter. Recently they had velvet and i did a treatment with esha exit for a few days. Now there are no signs of velvet but i keep checking them because i know it is very persitant. One of them grew a bulge on it's left side the last month, i cut back on feeding because at first i thought it was dropsy. Now he is better than last week. What could it be? Is it possible that it is fatty liver or some liver problem or internal parasites? I 've done big whater changes and bought a fishfood with more vitamins. The bulge is on the bigger fish (not the little white pimple), i couldn't take a better photo right now.
  10. Hi all, my 2 year old oranda has had a lump on his back where his tail starts for about a year. It has remained very small up until about 2 weeks ago when it started growing rapidly. I have been treating with melafix & aquarium salt but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. It's now started to Darken in places, so much so that it's starting to look black. Its also starting to look sore. He is still very active as you can see, still eating well etc. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm worried that it's cancerous. I have attached a video Thanks! IMG_4673///
  11. Gizmo is a 2 year old blackmoor and she has been suffering from a bad case of popeye for almost three weeks, as well as a swim bladder issue. Both appeared around the same time. She is in a 55 gallon tank with her brothers, pearl scale and an oranda. The water has always been pristine and I spend a lot of time taking care of them. Gizmo has been in isolation for two weeks, with a round of erythromycin for five days, it did nothing. I then used Tetracycline for the last six days, and I thought it was clearing up but I just found her laying on her side and breathing heavy at the bottom. I got her in the big tank thinking she needed oxygen and she is swimming okay but her eye is huge, and she keeps returning to floating on her back at the bottom. I am so desperate for some advice. Thank you .
  12. Hi everyone so I stop all 3 meds. I would like to know if I can just give her plain food back instead of giving her Anti-Parasite. Anyway here photo her she seem to getting back her old happy self. I did found of what pebbles has,she has internal tumor. So there nothing can do but this person told me Avogel1231:yeah, looks like a tumor, they dont kill things immediately and up until death the animal usually behaves perfectly healthy and sometimes the tumor wont kill but usually it does. I just keep my eye on her. I leave her in the 10 gallon for a week then put her in the big tank with everyone.
  13. Hi everyone pebbles is very sick with a lump on her side, a 2nd bump is growing I am not happy. I started her new meds yesterday, I put some more meds in today and it made her happy and swimming better. I am worried about her. I keep everyone posted as long you pray for her I think she will make it. If she was dying she would be at the bottom of the tank, laying on the side and not eating. She eating, not laying on the side, or laying at the bottom of the tank. She strong cookie, I can heal her. I want my happy girl back.
  14. Hi I am doing a salt treatment for pebbles. I think its a tumor other person think its a subcutaneous cyst. Pray for her and I keep you all posted.
  15. I just went to check on my goldfishes and everyone fine but pebbles. It look like a inner tumor just like what Flounder had. He die from it,I don't want the same thing happen to her. She so young she only 3 year old. I really don't want to lose her too. I also send Flounder photo it look the same. She is a happy fish.
  16. Hi there! I am new to this website but I have had goldfish for a few years now. However I have never kept any other fish with them so my question is, what fish can I keep with them? I have two orandas and I was thinking about introducing a betta or guppy to the tank at 24-25 degrees C (with a heater) although I am unsure if they will get along.
  17. New Goldfish Mom!

    Hello! I'm new to goldfish keeping...mostly...I currently have 4 comet goldfish that I bought to live in a little pond in my backyard. After some troubles keeping the water pump going, keeping algae out, and just a whole bunch of wildlife drama (fishies are fine, though) these little troopers have been upgraded to a 65 gallon aquarium indoors and have been happy for about 6 months now. I didn't realize there was such a huge community of goldfish fans, but now that I've browsed the forum a bit, I'm hooked and look forward to reading more about your adventures. I'm here because I want to start up a second tank for fancy goldfish, I would love a tank of pearlscales, but I'm not sure where to start or even where to buy them. My comets are very tough and I test their water regularly, but I know fancy goldfish are more complicated. My pearlscale tank is a long term dream so I'm looking forward to getting some great tips and the planning process.
  18. Hey, everyone, I hope all is well I have this Feeder goldfish that has now grown rather large, I have noticed a large white bump on its dorsal fin, and it has become rather lethargic the last couple of days , so I wanted to know if anyone could help, I've attached some pictures below https://www.flickr.com/photos/148233809@N04/shares/yiM3SW
  19. Hello, I am a new goldie owner and a new member to this site. I found out goldies are needy little buggers after already having won one at my local fair. I didn't expect to need such a large tank, but I want him to live a happy life, so I'll deal. I currently have him set up in a small 10-gallon, and I am waiting on the petco dollar per gallon sale to upgrade to a larger tank. My apartment has limits on tank sizes (I believe it is 35 gallons). My question is, will he be happy and healthy in a 25-30 gallon tank for the next few years? Once we are in a more fish-friendly living space, I may upgrade to a large tank (55 gallon) or to a pond, but that may be a few years as we do not plan on moving soon. Any advice would help
  20. Hi everyone! I bought a cool looking little guy at Petsmart the other day. I bought a little red oranda with a dark red wen, and a cool mixture of dark red and light orange markings. I put him in quarantine before I put him in my 65 gallon with my other fancies. Looking at him I kept thinking theres something different about this guy, then I realized he's a single-tail. I've done a little reading on this; is this not a desirable trait? Seems like all the stuff I've read on fries with single-tails means they should be culled? I was just curious about this as I've never seen an oranda with just a single-tail before. And don't worry I'm not going to get rid of this little guy he's really cute, and as far as I can tell so far he doesn't swim any faster than my other fancies so I'm not worried about him fitting in with the others. Thanks!!

  24. Hello, I have been keeping 2 goldies in a 4.5 gallon aquarium for 2 years and decided to find someone who would be willing to take care of them and offer appropriate conditions. I found someone locally who has 300 litre pool with only goldies in it and would welcome my fishies. I use public transportation to move and don't know what would be the process of transporting and handling fishies. Is there something to consider when introducing fishies to new place of habitat that have to do with their adaptation? Is there a caution to consider in how other goldfish will respond to new goldfish? I heard stories where fish would eat other fish. One last thing. I use Prime dechlorinator to dechlorinate water. Today was first time that I forgot to use it when I changed 100% of water. I left goldfish in it for 1 minute until I put 2 drops of Prime into fishtank. Is there something to be concerned about? Thanks!
  25. Hello everyone, I haven't been on the forums for a while. I have been 'fish-sitting' for some friends since the summer. They won this little guy (and his friend who sadly didn't make it ) at a carnival. They didn't realize how big a tank they would need for a single tail goldfish and will not be able to keep it. Of course the carnival people handed them 2 fish in a little critter carrier and just said to feed them. Anyway, I've been keeping him for the last 3 months or so in a 20gallon but I cannot keep him forever. I would like to find him a good home, he's still small, about 1.5 inches. I took some pics but haven't been able to upload. If anybody is interested please let me know, I'm in Westchester County, NY. Thank you!!!
