  1. Apparently one of your goldfish has gotten in quite the relationship; already at the move-in stage, and this early in the season. Don't be alarmed: I find random people living with me all the time! Congrats on the newly acquired fish! Now where are those pics...
  2. Sir mix a lot unavaliable for comment? Stunning tails! I'll have to contribute later, but I like where this is going
  3. So incredibly jealous! And no pics! :-p I have seen Dragons here at the mart of wall, but unfortunately no way I have the space. How large is yours? (sorry if I missed it)
  4. I like the dark smooth colors! Great contrast with the fish Almost looks like a gaming pc. Heh
  5. Thanks, Trinket: It sounds like that's the plan. I have dealt with a high PH and having to stay COMPLETELY on top of water changes for quite some time now with any cycling tank, and havent run into any issue. Honestly, if this change stays long term, it's welcome! Time for some KH / GH tests.
  6. ....... ha. I think I need to actually read before I post I blame work. Curse work for distracting me while I kill time.
  7. Heh, Tre Cool cracks me up - love it Great looking youngins!
  8. Animals destined to be our dinner is also subjective; There's no effective difference between a mealworm or a cow, if that is the determining factor. Your dog, your goldfish, your cat, your tarrantula... all are particularly precious to you much like a favorite shirt, a good friend, or your cell phone. It's a part of your life, and the loss of that just isn't desirable. Sure, there is legislation protecting certain animals, but much like all laws, these are determined based upon a popular determination as opposed to any actual factors identifying a dog as a creature that deserves more protection than a fish or a moth. Hindu's reverence for a cow is another wonderful example. Heh, if this is continued, it's only going to get worse
  9. Sorry to bump, but some input would be extremely appreciated! I'm not looking forward to testing my water weekly if this keeps up!
  10. It applies to more than just goldfish; goldfish tend to have more "character" than other smaller freshwater fish, but what about minnows? Mollies? Cows? Yes, cows. Living things are just that: living things, all the way from ants, to mosquitos, to goldfish, to cows, to people. Different people judge them in different manners. Few people will say it's not okay to swat a mosquito: it's murder. Their life is no less worthy than yours. Others will say it's not okay to eat cow. How about wearing cow. Falsehoods exist across the board. It's up to the individual to determine how they respect other living things. (Yes, I kill bugs. Yes, I go fishing, and yes, I take care of my pets.)
  11. So... it has been about a month or 2 since I have tested the PH of my tap water. My current tank is 8.2 PH Old tapwater when I last tested: 9.0 PH initially, dropping to 8.0 KH and GH were tested on an old strip test when I previously tested , and topped out on the strip. Don't recall the value at the maximum, but it was up there. Today? The tap water PH has tanked down to 7.2, have yet to test what it turns up with after sitting overnight. I am going to test the KH and GH again to see what happens. Is this kind of dramatic change normal? I tested both my tank water and the tap water today. Surely I can gradually change over my PH accordingly, but ... just what the heck! Any insight?
  12. I'll toss more up as soon as I finish up with rearranging tanks later this weekend Jasmine and Frost are the only clean red, and they're growing only more red; Donna and Ember are very clearly orange I'm also now using the excuse of "I have almost all Ryus!" to go shopping
  13. Oh... my.... I don't think I could stop staring.
  14. So incredibly jealous; I never get ANYTHING for mother's day! Looks good - great start! How are the new inhabitants so far?
  15. It's just what they do. No preventing it, and no harm from it, as far as I understand. When you feed them peas, they'll swallow the green poo immediately.
