  1. Ok I finally shook the carbon out, boy was it a nasty job. I don't believe in changing the filter media, I just clean it, so it was pretty gross. I just carefully rinsed it in some tank water. It took forever but I finally got it out!
  2. oh my goodness they are ADORABLE I am so jealous!!
  3. I got this electronic salinity meter from goldfish connection. It's really accurate and super helpful when you want to make sure you have the right salt levels in the tank! By happypercy, shot with Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS at 2009-04-26
  4. I know I can remove the carbon, the question is, is there any way I can just leave it in there now that it is no longer active since being in there for 6 months or is it still?
  5. I finally got the hikari prazi-pro in the mail today. The problem is it says remove carbon, which with the filter cartridges on my penguin marineland filters, the carbon is inside the cartridge, unless I actually cut it out. The cartridges have been in there almost 6 months, would the carbon still affect the treatment? Do I have to take it out still?
  6. 2 of my fish have recently started lying on the bottom I'd say for the past two weeks. They will come back up to the top immediately if I go near the tank or feed them.

  7. oh ok so do you use clove oil or how does that work. sorry if its weird i'm asking im just curious
  8. How many fry do you get when you breed goldfish? Do you keep them all? How many are there in a "litter" lol. How do you decide which ones to keep or do you keep all of them??
  9. I've had that problem with mine. first I make sure to mash everything down as far as I can mash it. Otherwise yeah, tape I've had to do that. I don't like aquaclear anymore, I used to use them all the time, but 3 of my filters after two years started to leak
  10. wow scary! That's amazing you were able to get it out
  11. I have a thing for the telescopes, I have a white one named Jaws

  14. I have a pretty heavy infestation of flukes in my tank. I'm out of prazi pro that I had ordered from goldfish connection. It is so expensive and because of the size of my tank I have to order like 4 bottles. I had gone to the store recently and found a fluke treatment called Anti-Fluke by Aquarium Products. Would this work just as well or do I really need to stick to the prazi?
  15. My very hyper, animated redcap lionhead!!
