  1. If someone wanted real high quality fish you would probalbly have to get it shipped. All of everyones fish here are shiped unless they because they need to get them to lfs. usually come alive in good health.
  2. NOOOOO!!!! If your brother did take sherlock that is like that is like the worst thing to take out of anything in your room!
  3. I used to microwave frozen peas, shell them and et them dry up and then they would be like sinking pellets.
  4. Blue orandas are not very common! If you Liked it when you saw it, don't try to convince yourself to not like it! Therefore, i think you should get it!
  5. they are good if you roll them in bread crumbs and deep fry them and dip them in barbicue sauce. LOL
  6. [quote name='daryl' date='Apr 25 2008, 04:17 AM' post='765118' YOu really cannot go too wrong with ammonia. Give it a try. he he he, i put in too much in my tank. I didn't know it was as strong as it is ( i tried to test it and the test came out wrong.). Now for all i know my amonia is up past 8 (my kit doesn't go any higher). Water changes can help that though. thank god there are no fish in that tank!
  7. I used pure amonia for my fish tank that i bought at the grocery store. Make sure it doesn't have any "soapy suds" or "lemony fresh". You can find the ingrediants on the back to see if it is pure amonia/ water and pure amonia. It is usualy really cheap. You might want to get some rubber gloves too because if that stuff gets on you hands it burns. and only use it in a well ventilated area and never leave the cap off the bottle!
  8. yes wen trimming is risky, It is probably best if you get a gold fish specialist with exsperiance or a vet that specializes in fish to do it. You should probably only have it done if your fish cant breath or it is having a really hard time doing anything.
  9. It was not to bad, the only places that the messed up on was the size of the tank and that you should change the filter pads once a month.
  10. It really depends on the fish's genetics if its wen can grow big enough to cover its eyes. I dont know much about wen trimming but Here is a link: http://thegab.org/Articles/SurgeryWen.html
  11. Well if you have a big tank for it (50 gallons???) I think you should get him/her. He doesn't seem to have any illnesses, he just seems a little out of shape. When i got flash (may he rest in peace) He had red in his fins but i was able to get him up into prime condition.
  12. The tank size is probably the problem. Goldfish usualy aren't aggresive fish but if they are cramped they will get a little fin-nippish. By the way,
  13. My gold fish used to be really excited whenever I would feed them They would swim around in a circle until i dropped in the food, I miss those guys
  14. yes Were talking about Carinotetraodon Travancoricucus lol
  15. I won't have a hard time finding pest snails, My friend is in constant warfare with them! I have read online that they are agresive. Plants are easy.....
  16. So i have a cycling 30 gallon tank and idid some fish reasearch and decided dwarf puffers would be a nice fish to keep there. I know that they are a little aggresive but if one is causing trouble i can get a tank divider. I would like to know if anyone here has any tips on keeping them or any experiance with them.
  17. When I first got flash (may he rest in peace) I tried geting him out of the bag with a net and its fin got caught on the net. I never used them again.
  18. When you change the water you should use some type of water conditioner to eliminate chlorine and chlorimine. Since your tank is only ten gallons, you should only get 1 not comet or common goldfish. Goldfish are very messy fish beacause they dont have a stomach.
  19. yes they do seem easier than goldies, I have all of the heating stuff and my tank is currently cycling.
  20. Thanks you guys, I just think it would be hard for me to go through another goldfish.
  21. Recently both of my gold fish died of unknown causes. They were not showing any signs of anything wrong. I dont think I will be getting any more goldfish, I am going to try my hand at tropicals. I just wanted to tell everyone. I will be using the tropical fish part of this forum now, after my tank is cycled.
  22. I dont mind it as long as it isn't a modification that will make life difficult (like only only having a tail fin or something) or is going to end up in nature.
