  18. I have (well RYUU has them for the moment) Kingyo, means goldfish and Wink, he's my bubble eye with one eye ~giggles~
  19. no, it shouldnt hurt them at all. If anything, its good for them. Is the tank close to a window, or where sunlight shines on it?
  20. great job! Ive been following your other post, and your i bet your speech went perfectly! Its always hard to stand in front of a crowd, and give a speech, however its much easier when you KNOW your material! Very good! Totally impressed with your report! Im glad you had the chance to share that info with a crowd. Hopefully you reached out to someone with 6 goldfish at home in a 5 gallon tank!
  21. gald you decided it temporary. Im new to the hobby myself, but i;ve done LOTS of research on goldfish. And im pretty sure everyone else will agree that goldfish need 10-15 gallons each depending on size and breed. This website is wounderful when it comes to researching info! Lots of great topics on here. Good luck with your new fish! BTW
  22. cute fish...are they both in the 14 gallon?
  23. ohhh i love the first one....she;s like "boooo-yah! in your face" LOL
