  1. I am terrible at telling with teles as well, but it does look slightly like popeye to me.
  2. I do a fifty percent (I would do more, but that is my quick mid-week change of not turning off the filters) once and then a 90 percent once as well. I think I like the idea of doing three 75% though if I could keep it up.
  3. What a pretty fish...and looks pretty darn good considering. Did you do any sort of QT? I would consider treating with prazi and salt just to be safe. The salt will help those fins heal as well.
  4. I just love all of your fish...you know that by now. But I am really loving the 55 gallon now. It looks fantastic!
  5. I have high nitrates in my tap as well, but I use lots of plants and they really help control them.
  6. Agreed...let alone two goldies, especially single tails that grow so fast. Can you get a plastic tub and put that on the floor.
  7. Totally agreed. A lot of people have high hopes for a larger tank soon, but then it doesn't happen and there are water quality issues and the fish get ill. It isn't worth the risk.
  8. So nice to have you back, Lola! You have been missed. It looks like they are hanging in there after all of the upset. These fish love to make our lives hard.

    My tank

    What a great tank! Beautiful fish!
  10. I am so jealous of your outdoor space and pond...just lovely!
  11. I have heard of people using the lower water level successfully, but some fish always need to be in a low level of water not to float.
  12. If you really want to make up, I will take one of those giant fish So nice to see you and little Breeches back! What a cool place!
  13. I really love your tank!
  14. This looks bacterial to me and I think it is probably related to water quality. Can you take a picture of your whole set up for us?
  15. Some fish have a tendancy to float on gelatine. Do you think you can find agar agar? You can find it at health food stores or Asian markets on occasion. My floaty fish doesn't float at all on that.
  16. He is so cute...there was another dragoneye (I think that is what they are called...someone else will know for sure) on here for a while. Very cool fish!
  17. Anytime I am gone for more than a week I try to find someone who can feed them and change the water. I will be gone in July for four days and I am just going to get them some plants to munch on, but longer than that and I might be concerned with no one checking the filters and equipement and doing water changes.
