I tried fasting, peas, different food, massive water changes, small water changes. This guy keeps floating. It has gotten worse since I got him, but he was floaty to being with. I keep my levels under control, the tang is fairly well established.. It seems to always float to one side, and the side is bulging and sort of misshapen. I think there might be something sticking out of it, but I can not tell..? He will swim down if someone comes to the tank, or for food, but sort of floats around otherwise. Here's a video, you can see his stomach floats up then flips to that same side it always does... Thanks for reading.
  2. I pulled out all the stuff they didn't eat. I guess I'll try again in a week or so. What sort of garlis? Does it have to be fresh or powder? Was the fresh leaf spinach ok?
  3. Bahh, I knew I should have skipped the peas. |: I put it all the junk in a food processor and mashed it up good. Then I stirred in the hot jello mix. But even if the veggies were too chunky wouldn't they still be eating the tuna jello bit? x___x I didn't use a stove at all, just microwave. It didn't look lik it was mixing through, so I used 3 packs of gelatin, with a little over a cup of junk. I must have a really crappy blender, I had to switch it to a food processor half way through and the carrots didn't get mashed. |:
  4. ..it did smell quite horrible. xD I was following instructions in one of the stickied threads. I don;t even know what it's SUPPOSED to look like. Here's a picture of mine: I'm slightly tempted to try it myself.
  5. ...wait cook the veggies? I thought they just needed like, partially cooked. D: I put them in water and microwaved them for like 4 minutes and they got all soft and mooshy. I think -one- fish is eating it. |:
  6. I made the gel food! It even got gelatinous and everything, I was all excited to throw it in the tank.. But they completely ignored it. |: I chopped it smaller and threw it back in and..they spit it out. |: It was three packs of unflavored gelatin, half a can to a can of tuna, half a cup (canned) peas, fresh spinach leaves, fresh broccoli, fresh baby carrots, all chopped up and blended and the jello mix stirred in, refrigerated and all. What did I do wrong? >:
  7. I have 5 commons, and maybe 5 or 6 fancies. And a small bunch of rosy reds. d:
  8. So I should be safe moving some of the goldfish over with the first filter, right?
  9. Hey~ I have a 55 gal full of goldfish and have finally gotten the stuff needed to set up my second 55. I want to split the fancies from the commons. It has two filters, a crappy Tetra 280 and a Marineland 350. I have two more 350s not in use. Can I just switch one of the filters and the fish at once and expect only a slight bump? The tank has been running for a few months now with no problems. If I can just switch a filter over, which one should I use? The 55 currently has..5 4inchish commons, and a bunch of fancies under 3inch. Slightly overstocked. but that's not the topic, so don't bring it up. It's not a bowl and everyone is happy.
  10. Ahh, okok. I think I willl just get two small packages of the Hikari Lionhead. x___x
  11. Eep, but as the size goes up the shipping gets more expensive. xD Who do you buy from on eBay?
  12. Can you use a credit card directly with eBay? I was under the impression you need a paypal account, or it was atleast safer that way. And Paypal confuses me. x___x
  13. How is ebay simpler? xD I havent't ventured too much into it, but I'm afraid of scammers and I know Amazon will protect me.
  14. Ahh, ok. So they are the same thing then. I thought a little bit of price difference was common but not that bad.. I know which one I;m choosing. ;D Thanks alll~
  15. Hey~ I want to order about 10-15$ worth of food through Amazon. I keep coming across differences n price though? First example: HERE is wheatgerm for .45 cents for 3.5 ounces, but HERE is 7 ounces for $16? Am I missing something? Is wheat germ even good for goldfish? Here is another one: THIS is the same as THIS but one is about $12 more? I'm so confused. Also, if anyone wants to suggest something off there, I can buy a few different things. I just want to go through Amazon.. =/ Thanks for reading~
