  1. They're doing it great they're moving them all to a specific part of the slate. Question tho, what do I do with them when they start free swimming. Feed them with the parents or move them into a barebottom ten with a cycled sponge filter with water from the parents tank? Anybody with angelfish breeding experience your help would be gvreatly appreciated, I have a tonne of questions.
  2. I have abreeding pair of gold angelfish (male pearscale femal normal) They have spawned a few times and ate there eggs. The reason i got them is too watch the fry raising action. And they're finally doing it, Im pretty sure I only get gold coloured fish as there genetics suggest. Im so excited cross fingers for good raise.
  3. I don't got to school till february and thats only for two classes. I've already been rubbing it in to my friends that I can sleep in for a few more months.
  4. Sound like Swim Bladder Disease. I've had fish with it before. My one ryukin lived for two months upside down. First things first what size is your tank, and how many fish. What type of food do you feed them? Do you fast them and feed peas? SBD disease is cureable, the more info you provide the easier it will be for us to help.
  5. I don't know if i'm the only one who noticed but some of those photos have been altered. The orange has been bulstered up in photoshop program. These two fish ###### well. http://www.goldfishconnection.com/uploads/.../AUC_112_50.JPG http://www.goldfishconnection.com/uploads/.../AUC_112_54.JPG http://www.goldfishconnection.com/uploads/.../AUC_112_60.JPG http://www.goldfishconnection.com/uploads/...UC_112_68_1.JPG No goldfish ever has that bright of a orange. Im sure some of you will disagree but im standing my ground on this.
  6. I know what you meen about your fish and the alternative lifestyle out of all my fish they've never spawned except twice on accident.
  7. Such A hard fish to take a good picture of very active.^^^^ Easy fish to photograph always ready for a photo op^^^^^ Those two fish are great looking fish pictures do not do it justice.^^^^^^ This fish is a 1000 times nicer in persion people shy tho^^^^
  8. Thats one of the ryukins more of a original goldfish colour got him because a larger fish of this quality with that colour isn't very common
  9. I have a hard time saying no. Needless to say that I have nearly 20 tanks. If he's been there since june I'd bet they'd spin a deal for him, stores always need the water space and a fish sitting there not selling is costing them money. If you where to buy say a 20 gallon and filter a full price I'd almost gurantee they'd sell you that fish at a discount price, sounds like your a frequent customer, so they'll like to keep you happy.
  10. It wont hurt them, if it stays like that, but I like to keep my tanks at 70, But 65 won't hurt and fish with wens cooler temps promote more fatty tissue growth such as wens. But for the winter it depends on what your house temperatures are. Heaters are inexpensive and cheap to run overalll I think you should get a heater I find my fish do the best at 70 but it's your call.
  11. I've never seen a wen develope like that. The best way to describe is indeed a helmet, can't think of a better way to say it. I love black orandas especially ones with the smooth velvetty looking wens. Great looking fish.
  12. I finally had room to get some new fish. The fish sempai had some lionhead oranda crosses. I decided to get them, I went and picked them up yesterday. And the fish sempai has a tonne of other fish their for sale. I got their and he had some of the nicest show fish i've ever seen, too pricy for me tho. These are the two lionhead oranda crosses. I also got 3 Grade A show broadtail rykins, 2 calicos 1 gold. 1 grade A show oranda for $30.00 which is amazing, the batch of orandas it came from just got out of quarentine so they weren't in the greatest condition, so he gave me a deal. The only thing that was wrong with them there tails where a abit torn up but hardy noticeable. He said the oranda was a 100 dollar fish once it's tail cleared up. I also got a few inch long orandas and ryukins for a pond experiment im doing. Overall it was awesome I have three tanks I have to set up yet and when they're set up im going again. I'll post pics of my ryukins and the grade A show oranda.
  13. D_golem is absolutley correct it's a comet.
  14. I use to have the same prolem with my fish. When they eat floating food they get little bits of air and causes all sorts of problems. Theres two option you can do. 1. Pre soak the floating food. If it's pellet let it sit in a little bit of tank water then squeeze them so they'll sink and if it's flakes push them under water and they should sink. 2. Get a new type of goldfish food that sinks, I use Pro-Gold from goldfshconnection. My fish cleared up any problems in a few days.
