Thank you. I also have Beavis and Butthead that I bought along with Ed, but I do not have any good before pics of Beavis. They'll be 3 years old in early July. I remember when I bought them, the lady said "so what are you going to feed them to?" I said I'm not going to feed them to anything, I'm just starting up a tank. She then said "oh, I should have picked some nice ones for you." I think she did :yeah:

Very nice fish everybody.

Here's another of mine. This is Marley, he's my first goldfish. I got Marley when a very good friend of mine became very sick and she asked me if I'd take her goldfish and care for him... Learning to care for him brought me to Koko's and started my OGD. He lived the first four months of his life in a one gallon bowl, so he never grew to his full potential, but I still like him.

Marley on 9/03/02

What a cool idea for a thread!

Ok here are my guys, i got my first two Goldies in Aug last year, they started off in a 5gal with rubbish filtration. But now because of koko's they live in a 40 gal tank with 10xfiltration (Fluval305extrenal, fluval 3+ internal) they get fed a mixture of flakes, blood worms, peas, tubafix, brime shrimps and anything else that is in my 'Fish box' at the moment i'm cycling the tank so i'm doing water changes most days.
