  1. Love love love! Always. Love your fish, your photography skills and your camera!
  2. Gorgeous! I love ryukins! What an awesome bunch! Makes me miss my guys..lol
  3. There's talk that she might actually be eggbound. What's everyone think about that? I can get the water stats of the water here at the store now, I'm currently here.
  4. Hi guys! It's been ages, I know... I've been struggling to keep my fish as healthy and happy as possible with our water situation. But just a quick question for you... I thought I had found on here once a thread talking about popping the swim bladder? I'm really nervous about this, but Chance, my pearlscale is bottom-up (pretty much permanently) and we don't know what else to do. I'm going to try to start feeding peas; right now she is at the pet store in much better water because I was afraid she wouldn't make it through the day while I was at work. My boyfriend is there checking on her occasionally - she is still upside down, and looks sad. I don't know what I'd do if I lost my Chancy!
  5. Good luck with finding a place.. and with the eventual move! I'm sure Sushi will be fine. You've received great advice already. That's why I love it here.. so many lovely, knowledgeable people so willing to help us with whatever comes our way! Keep us posted!
  6. Ohhh they're soo precious! I love pearlscales, too. :heart:heart They actually remind me of my very first pearlscales... such little angels they were. Unfortunately there was a horrible case of gill flukes I couldn't catch.. rip babies. About a year ago I picked up another pearlscale from a local pet store. The poor thing had its fins destroyed by a catfish.. it was a miracle she ever grew back her fins, especially her pectorals! Her name is Chance. She's a big beautiful baby. I just told my boyfriend the other day.. "I want another pearlscale!" How long have you had them? They are so small!
  7. Adorable!! are always so much fun!
  8. I just stumbled upon this on Yahoo. I'm not sure how I feel about it... the fish almost looks like my Angel did! As it was posted previously; I kinda expected more see-through.
  9. I'll be thinking about your fish! Hopefully your mom will take great care.. I know how hard it is to leave them. One of my biggest reasons to not leave for school was the fact I'd HAVE to bring my goldfish and frogs! And I agree -- have pictures sent!
  10. I'll be adding the crushed coral today! I'm really happy to report that everyone's happy now. In the 55 gallon tank! Chancy just swam right up to the glass excitedly and ate from my fingers. Peaches has been eating like normal, Angel's scootin' around but eating as well. She's getting better swimming each day.. how it usually works. Yay!! Thanks you guys. : I guess something's up with the water in the 37? So strange... I might see if Nate can test it at the store, maybe he'll find something I missed? Tragic loss of Tala, Nate and Coop though through this ordeal.. RIP babies I love you..
  11. Oh, beautiful pictures Alistair! Pippin is gorgeous!! My fantail Angel was a clean white when I first had her, as was Bridget.. but as time went on some yellowing happened. Still just as precious, though!
  12. Ok - moved them all into the 55gal last night. I now have TopFin60 and Cascade300 running on it. Thank you Stephie for relaying the information! Sucky information, but yeah. Did a water test before hand, I actually had the store test it - pH - 7.4 Ammonia - 0 Nitrites - 0 Nitrates - 20 Nitrates are now high! That worries me. Peaches just ate for me, Angel is acting up like she always does but still hangin in there, Chance is swimmin. They seem to like the dark right hand corner, I wish they'd come out. Peaches is struggling with the water current. I'm not so sure it was parasites, but maybe its my carbonate again? I need that crushed coral. I better check that next. Guess what? Finally a day off! I'm going to do a water change in the 55 hopefully get those Nitrates down.
  13. Sorry for such a long break, I'm still running around like crazy. As far as decorations go, I've got like 2 rocks, one with 2 holes in it.. a fake pink plant and a fake one with purple flowers. Two bubblers going... bubble wall, too, but it's not very productive. I haven't started Prazi yet - I've got the 55 filled, decorations in and all... but I'm hesitant until I actually have the time to test the water! I also need cartridges for my stupid filters.. and I'm broke. Josh gave me the Cascade 300 filter last night and is gettin' the cartridge for me today, so that should help.. I'll be putting that on the 55 with the TopFin 60. I don't have a microscope, although Josh might. Coop is doing much better but I can't tell if the black has gone away at all. Coop is back in the 37, Angel in the 10 - she looked like she was going to die this morning laying on her side. Chance was alone, Coop is stronger.. yeah. This is crazy! I'll hopefully have readings up tonight - I work until 8, won't be home MAYBE until 10 - sadly, I can't be home when my sister is anymore. If Josh and I don't head straight here (his tropical fish are dropping like flies right now, so he's also got a lot going on) I won't be on until after midnight I'm sure. See the worry?? I think we're coming here though, because we didn't last night and he knows my tank has to get set up. He works at a pet store so he's pretty good with fish.. I'll see what he thinks about the Prazi idea again. I've also have Paraguard if it comes down to that...
  14. Ok, nothin on the bottom of the tank really, it is bare and the 55 will have gravel.. getting it tonight. Prazi-Q says 1 teaspoon per 25 gallons. Angel is looking worse, breathing less frequently. pH still at 7.4
  15. Thanks Sarah! Wow, that's a ton of information. That sounds like a lot of work.. and I'm too broke to handle one right now. no room either! Watchin' them now, Angel just struggled up to the top and is scooting around the bottom. Chance isn't at the top but he's slow to react and just movin' his mouth a lot. Coop is still pretty black - I've tried to get pictures but it is impossible! Josh wants to get me his water for my tanks but we're wondering how that'd work well lol commuting water back and forth for my tanks is kinda silly.
