  1. I moved 20 minutes about 2 months ago. All I did was put each of the fish in a ziploc bag and put them all in a rubbermaid. I drained both tanks (58 and 46 gallon) including siphoning gravel. Then I just set the tanks back up in the new house with all new water-no problems. I did not clean any of my filters or change cartridges. They seemed 100% stress free when I put them in their tanks. I think the whole thing upset me more then them. Good luck with the move.
  2. Wow do the fish look great. I am love with your ranchus and lionheads. I see my lemon lionhead is doing good-lol I can't wait to get my pond. I am so happy that your fish are doing so well. I hope it all works out for me as well Tell me again what you have in there for filters. I need to buy them in the next couple of weeks. Anyways more fishy pics. The water is so clear you can get really good shots. How did the fern stuff on top do it looks like they are eating it, but that would be good right. Well I hope you post a couple more pics-very nice. I see doggie pics. Does Ally actually have a neck or am I seeing a different pug. I don't even know that dog who is that slim looking pug-lol Rach
  3. We don't have to say anything about how I would love to steal those calicos. I love calico telescopes and yours have some of the nicest markings. I'm sick of you getting all the fish I want! The newest one is even nicer then teh pic when he was for sale.
  4. I have bought fish from Roland and they came very healthy but shipping is hard on them and I seem to get fin rot after a couple of days. I have also bought fish from Tommy and the same thing happened after shipping so I think I may have an issue with my water since they were from 2 different importers. I think the stress doesn't help either but after treatment/quarantine the fish have all recovered and I am pleased with what I have. Maybe there is something different in my water that's causing it but who knows because my parms are perfect. Both people were very honest in their sales and I believe sent me healthy fish but I think the shipping stress has a lot to do with my problems. I have not lost any fish to date-knock on wood
  5. I saw the Rena Smart filter at the store and opened it up to have a look. I was not impressed by the design or the GPH for the price. The replacement cartridges looked a bit over priced and there seemed to be a poor use of media and space. There are huge spaces in each cartridge that could have media in it. I thought it looked neat but that was it.
  6. Please continue to post pics. I think the growing fry pics are my favorite on this forum. It's so exciting to watch them develope and get some color. Good job!
  7. Hey Lorrie, I'm so jealous BUT since we got the house-yeah!!!!! I am looking for the same tub here. There are tons of farms stores so I have people from work checking prices when they get feed. You can work out all the pond kinks then tell me how to do it-ll
  8. Great pics, wow how they grown into beautiful fish!
  9. This fan is on all the time regardless of the lights being on or off. There is no switch to turn the fan off. It's brand new do you think I should still try to oil it-I really think it's this loud.
  10. I just ordered a current satellite 30" 2 65 W hood from Big Al's. It's a 24 hour lighting system that we got for a planted tank. It has a lunar light with 2 lamps and a daylight with 2 lamps. I have 2 questions: 1) To me the fan is loud and I can hear it from the family room to the bedroom and I have to shut the bdm door at night so I dont' hear it. Does anybody else have that problem? 2) Only one of the 2 lunar lights lights up blue. They are dual actinic 420nm/460nm. My husband thinks maybe the other one is a UV or something special. I think it's blown-any thoughts. I'm feeling dissapointed in the brand and for 125.00 I might return it and get something else. Any opinions would be appreciated. Rach
  11. What cuties. I love the color pattern on your pearlscale!
  12. You know it looks a bit better today so I am going to hold off on the inj, and stick with the food and salt.
  13. I just got a reply from Tommy and he agrees 100% it's an injury from shipping. He sent me pics of the fish from the auction and it definately wasn't there. He recommended upping the salt to .35-.4% and for the best results adding a baytril inj. It does all of a sudden look more inflammed so I'll get some inj tomorrow at work. He's been very nice and I feel better after he emailed. At least I know I am only dealing with a wound.
