  1. i love your fishies x] they look so happy. :] ----as for your question, i'm sure someone around here will offer an answer. i'm a bit noobish to this hole goldfish thing >.< good luck ^^
  2. Last year (on a whim) I bought my first goldfish (Callisto. aka CC) an adorable calico fantail---- i was totally uneducated at the time, keeping her in a shallow 5 gallon plastic bin as my drawing subject. I soon fell in love with my new friend and scoured the internet trying to find ways to make her more comfortable. It was then that I stumbled across KOKOS and learned the way of Goldfish Keeping. I was hooked. Obsessed (if you will). ----maybe even a little horrified when I learned how many goldfish out there perish in bowls..... So that night I went to my lfs and bought a whopping thirty gallon tank with a BioWheel filter and began the process of cycling. I was so proud of my tank, and so proud of how well my dear CC seemed to be doing. She had near doubled in size withing 3 months. But like so many Goldfish keepers, I soon began to wonder if Callisto was lonely- So, after doing some research on other breeds of fancy goldfish I fell in love with lionheads. Not long after, I returned to my lfs and purchased Porkchop (Porkers, if you will). After quarentining the little fellow, the two were inseperable. Happy as clams. IT WAS ADORABLE. With confidence I tended to them, giving them a 50% water change every week, checking amonia and nitrates, making them food in the blender, feeding them snacks and watching them grow... I can't even begin to describe how happy it made me to see them everyday ^^ The months passed and my fish became a part of the family, my friends joked about the 'huge tank for just two tiny goldfish'. I simply laughed along, knowing that my fish were happy. It wasn't long before August rolled around and it was time for me to spend a month in Greece. Naturally, I began to freak out when I realised that I needed someone to take care of my fishies. My mother offered to take the job. I was a bit skeptical at first, but she went on to explain that 'It was better than paying someone to do it.' So, putting my trust in her, I accepted- wrighting down my explicate instructions as to their care. Placing the month's worth of food in pill containers as suggested on this site. But as it would turn out, it wasn't the food that was an issue. Despite my explanation of the nessisary water change each week- or perhaps every other week....she neglected to change the water at all. ....and that was the end of porkchop and callisto.... T-T It has taken me months to regain my confidence in fishkeeping. But I simply can't bear to look at the empty tank anylonger (and I must admit that I began to re-cycle it months ago). Tonight I'm going to scope out the goldfish selection at my lfs. wish me luck ^^

  17. hello ^^ I recently inherited a free 10 gallon aquarium from a friend (yay ^^ )----> and am desperatly hooked on goldfish. My two babies (Porkchop and Callie) are currently residing in a cushy 30 gallon. But I think i wanna keep the 10 gallon in my room and get a third goldie to keep in it (by themselves of coarse). soooooo i'm wondering what breed of fancy goldfish will be most comfortable in a 10 gallon aquarium by itself w/ more than adequite filtration ^^ --->of coarse i'd deffinatly upgrade if my hypathetical finned friend outgrew the tank....but what is the smallest variety of goldfish?
  18. really? i'm so excited that means i can deffinatly get one =D my goldies will be so excited to have a new friendddd thanx for the answerssss <3
