  2. Good to hear from on you. Dang you working hard! It’s always exciting getting new fish. Hopefully it all works out for you. I look forward to seeing the video. Glad you remember me. You sure helped me out a bunch. I just got a new fish. I’ve had him almost four weeks. He seems to be doing great. This is really the first goldfish that seems to be working out. Hope it stays like that. He is just a joy. I haven’t named him yet, been kind of waiting to see how he does I guess. I’ll start thinking of names. I want to attach a video, but they say it’s the wrong extension. I have an IPhone. How do you work that out? keep us updated 😀 Donetta

  3. Not particularly opposed - I just prefer to see them myself, watch them swim and interact in the tank, etc. I also am willing to drive several hours to see fish in person. Mostly, I want to avoid spending a fortune on a fish. I know that sounds bad, but I'm looking for something no more than $60 - including shipping - I just don't want to risk spending $100+ to get a fish delivered and then have it die. I want to be able to pick out the exact fish I want and ask about the sellers water parameters, medications, food, history as far as imported stock vs raised stock so that I know what kind of breeder I'm dealing with. I'm leaning more and more towards ranchu the more videos I watch of them. I did the same thing with my reptiles, once I found a reputable breeder I waited until they were going to be at a reptile show to meet them in person and discuss their husbandry and such. Breeders that I talked to when I was looking for my ball python that wouldn't respond to questions about housing and feeding or were unwilling to have me pick up in person were taken off my list.

  5. Are you asking for Goldfish? IF so you really do not need a heater for them. They can live just fine with out a heater. I would save your money I personally love the Fluval LED light. https://www.amazon.com/Plant-Spectrum-Fluval-Bluetooth-Freshwater/dp/B07BBWVDMS/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1DYABQHMZAUFP&dchild=1&keywords=fluval+plant+3.0+led+light&qid=1634867862&sr=8-1 🤗

  6. I have three tanks running as of right now. I'm afraid if I added anymore the floor in my apartment would collapse.

  9. And yes to this, if you’re dealing with flukes, lice, etc, there are more specific treatments to manage them. Dimilin, flubendazole, even formalin. It just depends on what you’re actually trying to treat. But prophylactic treatments in ponds really should be kept to a minimum, I think.

  10. Most ponders do not use PraziPro. It is costly to use in large systems and Prazi itself has been abused in the hobby and many of us find it is fairly ineffective at treating flukes in outdoor systems. Also - nobody recommends keeping salt in ponds longterm. This is unnecessary. Flukes are very salt resistant due to salt abuse in the hobby and it has little to no effect on them now. Also, Hikari, the makers of PraziPro recommend not to use salt with their product. If you want to use salt with prazi, you need to use the powdered form. Have you done scrapes and checked in the microscope to be sure you are treating flukes? Ponders need microscopes. Period. Are they gill flukes or body flukes? It is uncommon that fish have both. Flukes issues are generally early spring issues if you have them. If you are CERTAIN you are dealing with flukes - Flubendazole is a better treatment for outdoor systems.
