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
Anyone have experience (or ideas) on how to fold out moss balls into a moss carpet? Supposedly this is possible, please tell me if I've been mislead. I have a 45 US gallon tank, with two or three handfulls of river rocks, a PVC pipe, and 3 marimo moss balls on the bottom, no gravel or sand. The moss balls irritate me sometimes because I can't consistently make them stay centered in the bend of the pipe (or anywhere else), and I'd prefer to spread them out to cover the top of the PVC pipe and/or some of the river rocks. -How do you spread out moss balls without breaking them into little pieces, is there a simple way? -Would they even grow onto a smooth surface like river rocks, glass, or PVC? -If so, how do I keep the future moss carpet from floating away during WCs until they become firmly established?
Yesterday when I came back with Fergusson I also found some neat things for my Chi betta tank. These are; awesome mini moss balls, black river stones, a piece of driftwood and some grassy plant! So this morning I took all out and redecorated the entire tank. I also took a chunk from one of the large goldfish ferns and I think the tanks looks awesome this way! I stole the light from my other betta tank to make it brighter for the plants. I think I will order one also for this tank now too, the difference in coloring is INSANE. Sitting Bull approves Here it is! (you don't see the driftwood very well but it is a sort of 'T' shaped piece which takes up the back of the tank. Ferg in his QT just being Ferg lol!
