Today is the first time in close to four months that I noticed one of my goldfish taking a small nip at another goldfish.

For a few days now I noticed that one of my goldfish had a small tear in it's tail. I kept my eye on that small tear thinking it could be fin rot or tattered fins.

Today I know the small tear was caused by another fish nipping.

Today is first time ever I've noticed ANY KIND of agressive behavior from ANY of the fishes.

Keep an eye on that. It could be a sign of a sick fish. :(

I also tried oranges today. The spouse unit was cutting up oranges for a party and I grabbed a half slice. I removed the rind and cut it up into 5-6 smaller slices. The orange bits barely hit the water before my three orandas went NUTZ! They actually fought over pieces, slung them around, pushed each other around... I was amazed at how ferocious they got! I had been concerned that there would be orange bits all over the tank that would need netting out. After 45 minutes there was zero orange residue! The three spent the next hour digging and sorting through the gravel with a vigor that I had never seen before. I wish I had gotten a vid!

I gave them some duckweed. The new ranchu Poof was not an immediate fan -- I saw her spit out a big mouthful. I think she even said, "Eww, veggies." :)

Today I did a good sized water change. Really gave the gravel a good going over. I rearranged some of the decor.

Now I am enjoying their lovelyness!!

So far today I've just fed my newbies some NLS pellets (NOM) and my oldies :lol a bunch of Jump Start. I have been trying to train them to eat out of my hand, but so far only Ethel and Sally will do it. Fred looks like he reeeeeeally wants to but he chickens out at the last minute. :P Going to do a water change on the QT here in a minute. :)

I gave them a clean out - wiped down the sides, cleaned the plants and rocks, rinsed the filters.. but was unable to do much of a water change because the nitrates are 20 out the tap! I will wait and see if they drop soon before taking out more water.

This morning I fed some frozen bloodworms and it was a feeding frenzy :] My man's parents are in town and oohed and aahed over their flowy fins as they ate. It was a nice moment :] I love it when non fish keepers really appreciate the beauty of your goldies!

I didn't do a water change. Boil water alert is out. And I stopped feeding them. That's what I have done for them this week.

50% water change, cleaned the algae off the walls, took all of the anubias out and cleaned each and every leaf (tore one :( ), scrubbed down all of the flowers beads. Then we had bloodworms. All in all a good day.

Tried a new method of doing a 'water change' today..! My tap nitrates are just being silly at the moment (20 for the past few days) and the betta is creeping around 10 now. I managed to squeeze in a change for the goldies when the tap was at 10, but not the betta. So today everything in his tank got a little clean as I would normally do, and I vaccuumed the gravel till about 80% of the water was out. Got a spare filter stuffed with fine sponge, and filtered out the muck, put the water back in! Crazy stuff :P

Water change day. Will take a look around and see if any of the eggs stuck. The minnows spawned last night as well, providing tasty snacks for everyone.

If this keeps up, I'll be able to stop feeding pellets!! (not really, but they sure do like those egg-y snacks).
