  1. Hi everyone! Just wanted to share my experience regarding how I deal with my goldfish feeding issue during my absence from home. Usually during my holiday I am away for 2 weeks which is relatively long period of time. Well, before I was worried what will happed with my fish if I don't feed them and decided to ask my neighbors to feed them. I strictly instructed how and when to feed my fish....... and when I back...although my instructions the situation in my aquarium was absolute disaster, stinky water plus dead fish......I am sure that my neighbors did their best but the lack of aquarium knowledge lead to these results. Well I learned my lesson and for the next holiday I decided to use aquarium automatic feeder. After a while a good friend of mine (he has an aqua farm for goldfish and tropical fish in Bulgaria) shared that if my goldfish are adult, so 2 weeks period of time without any food is no problem at all, just a week before the holiday the goldfish have to feed bit more, and a day before to leave to do aquarium water change. He is very deeply in the aquatic knowledge and the hobby but although that I was a bit sceptic. So during my next holiday I followed his instructions but just in case I put one of the security cameras on my goldfish tank in case something is going wrong .........well everything was good, when I back I found very active and hungry fish and christal clear water. Since then I don't worry at all for my goldfish, even my jumbo flowerhorn has no issue at all. That is my personal experience, not a recommendation, just wanted to share, and the decision depends you.

  2. Hi Everyone!!!! Long story short, many years ago I was BIG into the hobby. I had four goldfish who were my pride and joy. It started with a goldfish I won at the fair, which I had for several years. Sadly, when my husband and I got married and had our daughter young, we needed the money to buy baby items, and I had to sell my tank with my beloved goldfish. I was heartbroken but at the time, it was the only thing I had that could bring us in enough money to afford what we needed Its been 13 years. My husband has wanted to replace my tank for years now but we have either never had the proper space nor the money to start from scratch. This past year we sold our house, downsized and moved to were cost of living was more manageable compared to where we were before. Then one day I stumbled upon a picture of an adorable goldfish, made a comment about how much I missed having my goldfish.. and my husband purchased me a new 60 gallon tank. You best believe I ran with that and went crazy buying everything I knew id need, plus more LOL. Ive been cycling the tank, getting it ready, and desperately wanting the perfect goldfish. I knew we would have to order what I wanted, so I agreed we would just do a community tank because ordering what I wanted was costly. But, to my surprise, my husband decided to order two goldfish from king koi. I almost cried I was so happy. They arent here yet, but will be next week, but im beyond excited. I cant wait to be a goldfish mama again. My new babies are a tricolored thai oranda and a kirin tele oranda. I saved the pictures of them on my computer just so I can daydream about them (I know, silly). The TV in our room was recently taken out so I could sleep better (i was staying up watching TV way too late) and in place, the tank will be in our room to create a relaxing space I can escape to. As for everything else, Im 34. My husband and I have four amazing (and crazy) children together. We live in satans armpit (as my daughter calls it because its so hot here during the summer). I used to love aquascaping, but know its a bit difficult with goldfish as they eat EVERYTHING, but im up for the challange (i managed it years ago, I think I can do it again). In my free time I knit, sew and homeschool my kids. I cant wait to get to know everyone!!!!! I attached pictures of my soon to be goldfish babies.
