Absolutely stunning! wow those fish drink a lot of water :lol

:rofl :rofl that so funny! lol .. thank you :)

Great looking giants Any plans to breed them? I can also see that one with the cyst removal mark still very visible. Good surgery job. How about that ryukin laying by it's side. Have you tried with any other treatment before? There is still a slim chance you know.

thanks Jeff, for your wonderful compliments :) what do you recommend for Mr Disabled? he's a very strong, healthy fish otherwise, grown 2" since he's been on his side and not lost the belly :)

I love your tanks! :) Fish look great today.

How old is that huge anubias? :o

thanks hun :) that anubias is approx 3 years old. i swap them around as the giants really tear peices out of them. so this gets some regrowth time in the totts tank. every 6 months, i swap them so they get some time to recover. also, sometimes i take them out and leave them in an aerated tub for a week, out in the sunshine, i give them boosts with fertilizer and other nutrients for a speedier growth (i don't add these chemials into the water where the fish are). i then rinse them well and add them back to their tanks :)

Must keep that regime in mind for later, as I was wondering how good it looked with those gorgeous giants. :P

I don't usually encounter those sinking type of swim bladders (a lot harder to rectify than floaters) but I have cured a couple with using green water treatment. First you have to make sure all bugs and internal worms are eliminated then cultivate some GW outdoors. GW must be really thick and green. I'm using those 20L Quandrant brand tubs(made in Australia cost $7) from Reject Shop. All you need is to aerate it with an airstone and make sure also your temp is not over 30C. (gas bubble risk). If you are interested I'll give you more details.

You still got another two months of sunny weather, why not start immediately with brewing your GW and put fish in straight away? It's really hassle free and your fish can drink algae tonic 24/7...lol.

thank you..

well, they are already 1.5 years old at the time of purchase. Leonidis, the big red one has been with me a few years, and the rest less. the Sakura Ranchu is the last addition to that group, she's been with me a few months now :)
