  1. No thanks. Dont like goldies that much, I ove my fantail, but their isnt enough variety for me. And also keeping them in a pond would mean i would have to bring them in in the winter.
  2. how big are they? i was thinking of an external filter, cuz i want to minimise the amount of space taken up by a filter, but im not sure....
  3. Iv fed my fantail and veiltale live redworms a few times, not sure how hygienic it it though....
  4. Just wondering, I'm getting an 11g tank on tuesday, and i was wondering what would be the best filter to get? It needs to be relatily quiet and small, but also keep the water CRYSTAL clear... Any ideas?
  5. Oh and may i add, my fantail is very bulky, and is about 2.5 inches tall, so at first when i got bream of carp or whatever they would be about the same sized. And also Im thinking of ony getting carp and stuff small, and just letting the grow, so i wont be putting bigger fish in the pond.
  6. Yes i know, the record for common/mirror carp in england is over 80lb, but they grow quite slowly, so once the got over about 1lb then i would hand then over to my friend who has a much bigger pond, bream can grow to about 15lb aswell, but the same, cuz i can buy them both in 2-3inch sizes near me. Record roach are about nearly 4lb, but that is quite rare, 1.5lb is expectable, crucian carp grow to about the same but 2lbs is normal. I was just wondering, if while they were small i could keep them with my fantail and veiltale, which are both abot 3.5inch?
  7. I dont mean all of them. But are u saying none of them would get along with a fantail?
  8. Just wondering if my fantail would get along alright with the following : Common Carp Mirror Carp Crucian Carp Roach Bream
  9. OK, I have a fantail, and my brother has a vieltale (i think) Mine is in a 10g tank, and my brothers is in a 9 gallon I was wondering how u tell wether they are female/male? Or would you need pics?
  10. No me neither, and mine dont like peas either....
  11. Lol, He is my best friend, and iv known him all my life, because our mums are best friends, if i got the animal welfair authority then they would go mental at me! And i have tryed to tell him, i think tbh, the best way for him to learn is if some of his koi started dying, and he found them flaoting on the surface, or for example, one caught dropsy or a swim bladder disease or somthing like that, ill try and show him on the internet, but the best way will be to wait until they empty their pond, and actually find ot how mny galons it is. But ill keep trying. Just annoys me, and he was telling my to keep a brown river trout in my 4.5 gallon tank!
  12. Lovely fish, my favourite are the doitsu kikokuryu and the guy caled SPOT
  13. Yeah exactly! 4inches r his biggest ones! Some r smaller! I guess Ima just gonna have to leave him, their isnt really anything I can do, he wont listen, the only reason he might listen is if a load of his fish die, but then he would probably come up with a differant excuse... *sigh*
  14. Yes he has a pump, but I dont know how good it is, and he would never giv any fish away, especially not his koi! He has had them over 7 years and the biggest one is about 4 inch! Urm.. right now, it is winter, so in the days the highest temperatures are probably 8 degrees C, at night, lower, not sure how much, the pond does get sunlight, it is just in his garden, with only a fence on one side of it which would stop sunlight, and i doubt he will buy a de-icer, when i mentioned it to him he was like "The fish can still breathe! DUHH!" But in the summer his mum is planning on re doing the pond, and making it clear, this is when he will get 12" golden orfe and 6" tench.
  15. Wow, I love goldies with those black spots!
