Thanks he is an awesome fish he used to be the smallest and when I fed them he would push the Oranda’s away from the food I had no idea fish acted like that, now he’s big enough he doesn’t have to do that the pictures are of him when I bought him and one was taken a few months ago

Thank you for sharing the pictures man. I like how his scales are. 👍🏽 He really put on some weight since you got him.

Looks great!! Your fish must be happy :)

 

Is that natural wood as decor in your tank? If so, how did you clean/sterilize it? I've got a large piece of driftwood that I want to use in my 75 gallon but unsure about how to go about disinfecting it.

I soaked it in a 55 gallon drum with bleach for a week, then I ran the hose in the drum over flowing it for about ten minuets a day for about two weeks n then rinsed it n put it in the tank that was last year

It did make it drop when it was in the 55 gallon so I started keeping a bag of crushed coral in the canister filter

They are alittle expensive but you could use a Wondershell to help with this :)

I have thought about using those before especially since the coral takes so much rinsing

I get mine from https://www.petmountain.com/product/aquarium-water-conditioners/11442-505234/weco-weco-wonder-shell.html

I found them to be the cheapest :)
