  1. I'm just seeing this now. I have a little ranchu that does the same thing, but much worse than yours. It is definitely not normal, as I have not seen this movement in any of my other ranchus. The ranchu that does this spinning is stunted, or has not grown since I got it. All of my other fish have far outgrown him. I have tried many different foods and water levels and different setups and he has not gotten any better or worse. He is out in the pond now and still rolls and spins all of the time. Other than the way it looks to me, he seems OK with it. He eats with all of the others and gets around the pond fine. I've just accepted him as he is and will let him spin as much as he wants.

  4. They look great Jared. Hope you heal up soon.
  5. I love how they seem to watch you as much as you watch them.
  6. He's awesome. They have always been one of my favorite SW fish.
  7. Ugh. I'm sorry this happened. I am not sure about removing the eye, but my tele got his eye sucked off by the filter intake when my strainer fell off. I just made sure I kept the water clean and he came through it with no problems, other than not having an eye. I think the main concern is clean water until it heals. Hopefully someone can let you know what to do about the eye. Sorry I can't help with that part of it.
  8. Some of my fish love to grab a mouthful and sift through it right in front of the intake. I think if you have sand on the bottom, you are going to have sand in your filter unless your intake is a surface skimmer. That said, I haven't had a problem caused by the sand in my filters other than I have to rinse them a bit better when cleaning.
  9. I've been looking at that eBay light but the RGB version. Sounds like if you have 4 you're pretty happy with them. Anything negative about them? How long have you had them? I like them alot. I have had no problems with them at all. The oldest one I have is over 2 years, the others probably just over a year. I really have nothing negative to say about them.
  10. Both on the same tank? I have 5 tanks setup 75, 2 55's, 40B, and a 10 I have one Current strip since they are expensive, and 4 of the Hi Lumen strips.
  11. I use these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/48-60-LED-Light-HI-LUMEN-Aquarium-Fish-Tank-White-Blue-Extendable-/261975223776?hash=item3cfef0ade0:g:64cAAOSwd4tT6ITC and this one: http://www.amazon.com/Current-USA-Satellite-Freshwater-Aquarium/dp/B00C7OTF9E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1462277088&sr=8-1&keywords=current+usa+led My anubias and java fern grow great under both. The Current USA comes with a remote to change colors and dim and there are programmed weather effects in it also.
  12. They're beautiful Angie. Love that tele
  13. I would look to see how the holes were "plugged". they should be OK if they were done correctly. Also make sure you look for those fine acrylic crazing lines. They may indicate stress from previous misuse or leveling. If you google "acrylic tank crazing lines" there is a lot of info on what to look out for.
  14. I'm not sure. It depends on the individual fish I suppose. Here is a kirin from dandy orandas:
  15. I think Ingot is a short bodied oranda and a Kirin is a color form of calico fish that looks almost silver.
  16. Oh, and it did work very well. I would recommend it because it did seem to be pretty easy on the fish and inverts and did not harm my cycle.
  17. hmmm...did you you use the dip concentration or the regular dose for immersion? I used the regular dose right in the tank. All my fish had ich at the time. It did not stain as much as some treatments I have used in the past that stained my rocks and decor, but the silicone definitely picked up some of the blue.
  18. I've used it, and it did stain my silicone.
