  3. My cycle spiked in my tank because I didn't cycle my tank , instead I puted in 25% water from my old tank. I left it for one day and puted my fish in the new tank. I fed too much, and now the bb couldn't keep up with the waste. So i beleive my tank had a cycle spike. I did a 50% water change, and now im doing 10 gallon water change per day to help the bb out by eliminating dirty water. My fish seems to be affected by they are slower moving, and not normal behavior. How long will they be back up and running?
  4. What is the best temperature for fancy goldfish(ryukin, oranda, ranchu, lionhead...)My tank is at 74 degrees.
  5. I'd be really mad and stressed if that happened to me!!
  6. Can I have your tanks and golds?
  7. Have you seen the movie bubble boy? This is what im equating to. If my fish lives in a sterile environment and when it hits a environement that isn't sterile wouldn't they be more prone to diseases. Like the bubble boy he lived in a bubble that was sterile if he went out he would die. So if my fish lived in a "bubble"(sterilized water) and when I change water they will go out of the "bubble". THis will cause them to stress and get infected?
  8. Hey guys.I was thinking about UV sterilizers. If the tank is killed of all parasite and bacteria. Wouldn't the goldfish's immune system go down because there's nothing left to fight? So if I change water and the new water isn't sterilized, wouldn't that harm the fish because the new water contains bacteria? Wouldn't my fish be more prone to diseases? Also wouldn't a dechlorinator when it hits the UV cause a reaction of some sort? Im not sure maybe you guys can explain.....
  9. Hello guys. I was just wondering if I can do 10% water change everyday? I used to do 50 % water change per week. But now I'm just got more time to do a 10% water change per day. Is it ok? Thanks
