  1. Past hour
  2. Hi Dahling8. Thanks! And you too can sit on the bench and feed them if you ever make it to Italy!
  3. Today
  4. That was cool to go diving in. I did that once with my guppies..lol love the colors of your new fish. 😊👍
  5. Well I haven't seen that before. Looks like a dead leaf from my end. Is this coming from a sword plant?
  6. That looks to be a little irritated....if it was me, I would just salt the tank at .1%. This might help. 😊 Aquarium salt or Morgan's canning salt.
  7. Yes, I have three here hopefully you are able to see it she kept moving around haha
  8. More accentuating photos for my fellow recreational scientists out there.
  9. I read this thread and I have a slightly different looking thing but it certainly looks relative, any advice or comments on this thing would be appreciated. I haven't added anything new, I do have an abundance of nitrates that I still have not been able to cut down enough, Ive been too busy to do really big water changes. the way it looks like its grown out from a central hub makes me suspect it is some kind of fungal mycellium. the idea of under water mushrooms almost makes me want to let it grow and see if it has some kind of fruit/ reproductive body. I'm going to take it out though because the snail pictured eating the black/green algae got to that spot and busted a U-E
  10. Hi Beth, Thats a nice looking fish! I have been feeding my fish Repashy super gold for a few months now, and they will eat it until they pop if you let them. I have used both the cube method and I have made the jerky as well and I find that the cubes are much more efficient for my tank as the jerky causes my fish to go wild fighting over it then they're all up in the plants and rocks trying to get the jerky, one of my more mischievous fish actually disappeared in my tank one day for about 20 minutes and I come to find that it had somehow worked itself into one of the ornaments I had in pursuit of the jerky- causing me to remove that ornament. I feed repashy twice a day most days, sometimes on the 3rd day I'll feed repashy in the morning and pees at night. If I notice they have trailing poop I know I've gone overboard with the repashy so then I fast them for 12-20 hours and if they're hungry all they have access to is algae, my plants, or snail eggs. Hope this helps, Best Regards, Jordan
  11. I seem to have another problem.. On Friday, my female goldfish laid eggs again and everything was okay. Normal stuff. Anyways, today the female goldfish seems to be having something tiny and red sticking out of it's vent. I tried picking it and putting a bit of pressuring on it's abdomen thinking maybe there were extra eggs in there but nope nothing to be found. They aren't worms but it's just a red ball looking thing on it's vent and it won't come out.. What should I do? She seems to be fine and eating well. Very interactive, swimming around, searching through the substrate but I fear that this may evolve into something bigger like maybe dropsy or something like....
  12. Yesterday
  13. Great pics! The pond & fish looks so beautiful and natural. Even the filter looks beautiful and natural!
  14. Last week
  15. After the pandemic, I may take you up on the offer! :D
  16. Super pretty! I'm really liking those streamlined fish!
  17. If it is moving around a bit that does mean if you’re trying to remove it surgically you should have better luck than one very integrated into his head, and firm means it could be fluid filled too, you never know. Discontinue or complete the fungus treatment, though. It definitely isn’t that. But if you want to leave it alone and watch longer that’s totally an option as long as he is acting normally and eating
  18. Artic Mama, Thank you for the response =) The bump is very hard and kind of moves around within his wen when I touched it in the past. Does this mean something different than a softer mass? Thanks again. - Pamela
  19. Hey guys. Just wanted to let @Arctic Mama your painting is on its way Im also home schooling Justine and man is it hard I tell ya.
  20. Yeah, tie the stone to the cord and not the glass only because I worry the fishing line might melt if it’s against the heater Smaller fish tend to be faster as well. But if you see any real drama beyond some chasing just use a little plastic colander to float one of them in the fishy penalty box and give them a break.
  21. Oh. That's a good idea. It's just that the heater is made of glass. So i didn't want it being bashed about. But ill try it with the stone. I already have an airstone in there. The sexing isn't really important. I was just curious. Although I am worried about the size difference and Cinders getting bashed about by Jaffa during any potential mating
  22. Why would the heater not be safe dangling...? Just use fishing line and tie the cord to a little stone to weight it down if it’s floating, it will be fine. They can certainly handle cooler temps but it means a longer quarantine, basically. I don’t really care what you do with the filtration; it’s your choice. If the canister doesn’t produce any bubbles with a spray bar do add an air stone for better gas exchange though Really, six of one, half dozen of the other. Cant help you with sexing, I have literally never bothered in two plus decades of goldfish keeping. There are YouTube videos but until breeding behavior or external markers emerge it’s not 100% certain.
  23. Thank you @Arctic Mama @dahling8and @FishyMandy He is a Bristol Shubunkin . We are thinking if calling him / her Cinders but are still working on the name. I switched off the heater because it just didn't feel safe and dangling it without suction cups doesn't work. The temperature this morning is at 20C/68F. But we had a very cold day yesterday. I tested the water a few hours after I put him in and had ammonia at 0 but a bit of nitrite (barely at 0.25). I tested again in the evening and both ammonia and nitrite were 0. I have been dosing with seachem stability too. Not sure it will help but it can't harm right? I did order a small canister filter before I saw your post @Arctic Mama. It's rated at 400l/h. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01N4BC1R5?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title The QT tank is 40l litres/ 10 gallon. At the moment I am running the seeded HOB on the tank. Should I move the media into the new canister filter? I was thinking I could then put the small canister filter on my main tank once I move the new fish. To help the main tank cope with the new bioload. Oh. Any advice on sexing our new waterbaby?
  24. Just from the picture it does look like a tumor. If you search past threads you can see we have had people leave them, try to operate, etc. The thing is, sometimes they grow slowly and sometimes they’re more aggressive and become a drag on the fish. My general advice is to wait until it’s making swimming difficult before trying surgical excision, but that’s your choice. if you press on the lump does it seem soft and blood fills or harder like a pea?
  25. I am here because I need help. This is Spot. Spot is my baby, and almost six years old. He has had wen surgery three years ago to help his eyesight. We moved cross country six months ago, but he seems to be okay from that. Him and his siblings have the right water tank and set up. This started showing up about 2 months ago, I thought it was his wen coming back but now I see it’s something off. I saw something similar and thought perhaps fungus so he’s in the hospital tank right now with a fungus treatment. Could this be a tumor? If so; what are my options ? Also what could it be ? Any help is appreciated.
