  1. "My Super Ex-Girlfriend"...Luke Wilson's character (the ex-boyfriend) has a big ranchu in a 10 gallon tank. He saves it from being boiled by his ex.
  2. Thanks everyone! caitie...He is about 4". Considered "large" at PS. Waite until he is out of quarintine. He is going in with my 12" oranda and 10" fantail!
  3. Many of you have heard the saying "Goldfish are puppies with fins!" Well ...Fins + Puppy = Fin-uppy!! Went to a major pet chain to help a dog/cat rescue with an adoption event today. I looked at the goldfish and this blue oranda stole my heart. $30.00 later.... Meet my new Fin-uppy. Name suggestions welcome. I am leaning towards Pugsley. http://s1024.photobucket.com/albums/y308/GoldfishGeisha/Goldfish/?action=view&current=100_2242.jpg
  4. 5 Goldies: 1 Chocolate Oranda 2 Moors 1 Faintail 1 Commet Total 235 !
  5. Just give the red cap time. He is still soooo little and the world is soooo large. This little fish has probably been shipped around, experienced differant water qualites and differant tanks. My vote is he will grow out of it. It is good he has company and will soon learn he has nothing to fear!
  6. So I need you large aquarium owner's advice. I have always dreamed of getting a 125 gallon aquarium. I am turning 40 on Feb 26th and am thinking of getting the dream tank as a gift to me. I live in a basement apartment. Just got new carpeting and there is cement under carpet so weight is not a problem. I have 7 large goldfish (5' to 12") Question: Now I have 3 tanks. It takes about 3 hours per week to clean tanks. I use a python for water change and wipe glass,etc. If I got my dream, I would have the 125 and keep the 55gallon. My worry is cleaning. Are 125 gallon tanks harder to clean? Is it hard to reach the back glass for cleaning? Please advise! Thanks!
  7. I don't think it is aggression... Goldfish are little piggies! They eat anything. I just seperated 2 males ( I am 100% sure of the sexes) because of the same problem. Pharoah is a large brown oranda (12") with a long flowing tail and Wanda (yes he is named Wanda!) is a commet (9"). They have shared a 55 gallon tank for over a year. Wanda just started munching on Pharoah's tail. It looked like the same behavior the fish use to eat plants or seaweed strips. Wanda would suck up a part of Pharoah's tail and shake this piece trying to rip it off. I have had this problem before with a male ryukin. The only recommendation is to seperate them. I moved my 3 large female goldfish in with Pharoah. Wanda is now in a 39 gallon tank by himself. Because I feel goldfish are social, I am looking for a common (short tailed) male buddy for Wanda. I am hoping the short tail will be less tempting. Good luck!
  8. I would stick with flourescents. They don't run as hot which may heat your water.
  9. Wow! Great pictures and Beautiful fishies! Thanks for the eye candy!
  10. Be careful what you add to your fish tank. Most home decor items have dyes and sealers that are dangerous to our fishy friends. I found this buddha I am wanting... http://www.kosmosdi.net/cart/description.php?id=436 I think if you stick with solid limestone it should be safe.
  11. Awesome...I saved the tank photo to my "Favorite Tank Pictures" file for future tank decorating inspiration!
