Tell us what YOU did for your goldies today :-)

Recommended Posts

Keeping the goldies happy and healthy demands work. But it's a labor of love. :wub:

Just for fun, tell us what you did (whatever you did) for your goldies today.

What a neat topic! I'm not a big blogger, but this is like tweeting about your goldfish :rofl

Fed everyone veggie gel food and later on blood worms.

Went to Fintastic to get more Gold Buffer.

Did my regular 85% w/c on the teles boys tank.

Discovered that the little guys shredded Blacky Fishie's tail (There were issues with the filter in her tub, I had to go to work and didn't want to leave her without filtration, so I placed her in the baby tub for half a day, thinking that she'd be fine in there since the teles boys are really sexually harassing her anymore, and she seems to delicate too be in with the big fish. I saw the little guys being up her rear but assumed this was curiosity. It probably was, and additionally they seemed to think her big flowy tail was some sort of toy :doh11: ) so I apologized to her a million times and added .1% salt.

Lol. It's only 7:50am here, so I haven't done anything for them yet. I did check to make sure all filters/components are running as they should. They will get gel food in a couple of hours and bloodworms later this evening. There is also a WC for the bigger tank. :)

Fed every one a nice breakfast of blood worms and a peas. Also found out that my new red cap oranda will eat form my hand a bit. It was so disgustingly cute that I almost threw up.

Nothing yet. Yesterday I gave them a nice big water change, replanted the plants they uproot every day, and noticed 10 minutes later they had one floating at the top again. :rofl:

Yesterday was fast day. They begged all day long. Today they get some peas and nori.

All I did today was feed them! Lunch was pieces of spinach and grapes for the goldies, betta pellets for the betta. Dinner was veggie and salmon gel food for both :)

Ooh and I lifted my stupid slidey filter up to where it's supposed to be for the bubbles to work.

Huh? :rofl

I know what you mean though. I like how the tanks look and how I feel afterwards, but I certainly don't enjoy actually doing them, especially in winter when the water's colder! :P

^ I'm sure if I had 12 tanks to deal with I wouldn't :) But my one little tank is manageable, it only takes maybe 30 minutes to do the whole thing. :) And I get real enjoyment out of finding any poop that may have gotten trapped in a plant leaf or behind a rock... it's like a mini treasure hunt! :clapping:

As I am still rather comatose this a.m., nothing at all. I will turn on the light and feed my fish in a few minutes.

When I get back from work, it's water change day :) So I'll do that shortly. I'll be doing peas tonight for dinner too. And finally, the search for a brazilian pennywort or maybe a pothos, and a python for w/c's (which is really more for me, butoh well :rofl).

i did... nothing. yet. poor fishies have been so neglected since school started, i feel so bad for them :(. I've been changing their water only like once a month or less, or when it gets cloudy. But today is saturday, so Im planning to clean all my tanks today and tomorrow before we get into final exams, cuz then i wont have time either. :krazy: So much to do, so little time!

Plus, one of my tanks has been empty for a few months since my puffers died. I want to get new ones, but right now I just dont have the time for them :(, but maybe i'll get some more after my last exam. Its weird having an empty tank, just begging to be filled with something

Did HUGE water changes on all 3 tanks. Scrubbed the 125 and anchored down all the plants with Kaileys method :) It looks great, I just hope it doesn't turn into a buffet for the goldies. It's ok if it does though. I'll never know what I can put in there until I try :)

Fed them some Mazuri and also added so live brine shrimp! They went nuts chasing those poor little guys around. (It was especially funny when I put some in the Betta tank. The Bettas take hunting VERY SERIOUSLY!!! And the Tiger Barbs...gosh...total feeding-mania!!!!!

My goldfish feel unloved today!. I didn't even drive over to the rental house today. I've been doing so much "solving mysteries" with the synodontis tank. Mostly this has involved, I have no idea what's wrong so I'll do another extra water change.

It's just not worth the gas to drive to the rental house tonight, be there for two hours and drive back here. I am trying to feed my synodontis with the mystery illness every night due to being skinny.

I put food in at night and remove uneaten food in the morning.

After that, I've been bargain hunting online for canister filters.

Goldfish will get their turn. I did feed them frozen bloodworms last time I was at the rental house.
