  1. Thanks for the support it really helps. I hate when these things happen. I feel so helpless. I have done every possible thing in the world that I know how for this fish.
  2. I'm sorry If there is a thread on this but could someone please tell me how to Euthanise a fish? It's been a long time since I've had to do this. I will be having a friend do it as its too painful for me to do myself. I have clove oil. Thanks
  3. I posted this on the 911 thread, but its such a long thread I wanted to make sure this got read. I wanted to let everyone know, whoever is following this post, that I have decided that I am going to have to put Freckles down. He lost his ability to stay upright, he's on his side 100% of the time. He has no tail from the finrot. At first when he started losing his balance he tried and tried to get upright but couldn't do it... Now he appears to be suffering, does not try, and shows no reaction to me coming near the tank. His eyes do move, and its heartbreaking because he can't swim to the food. I have to literally put it in his mouth. This is nothing like the case with my other calico ryukin Speckles. Speckles is stuck on the bottom but gets very excited around feeding time, eats, and moves around when I go near the tank and if he has to he IS capable of swimming around. I am afraid that Freckles cannot move at all. I am devastated. I appreciate everyone's support. The last thing I would ask for is advice on a human euthanasia. I do have clove oil. Thanks everyone for EVERYTHING...

  5. Not good news about freckles... I will put up a post about this he's not doing well
  6. What about wiggles if I watch the videos he wiggles!?like my signature? Hahaha "no name"
  7. I found this app for my iphone that generates random captions and puts them on your photos LOL
  8. The reason it look so blue is I bought this special slimy stuff that adheres the background to the glass so you don't have to use tape and its ten times brighter. It's not sticky either its like baby oil, but it is messy. You then can smooth over the bubbles, its kinda like putting a screen cover on your phone. I have not been able to find this background slimy stuff anywhere other than petco Yep, well haven't measured them but they are huge. I didn't buy them this way! lol
  9. There's a lot of things. Sometimes you can hold off on feeding the fish for a day and that can help. Another thing that has helped my fish is giving them peas but I make sure to soak them and take the outer shell off
  10. thanks guys for all your nice compliments. i love him too, I still just can't decide on the name!!
  11. Thanks! Well, I am willing to give away any one of them in the 20 gal.. the problem is I don't know anyone in NC near me who might want a fish. I am WAY too attached to the fish in my big tank would never give up Alfredo or any of those guys lol.
  12. Thanks!! Good idea, I wonder which fish I would move? Bloopy is REALLY small you wouldn't even notice the difference or even see him in the video lol. The lionhead or the oranda would be one of the ones I'd pick. Which do you think?
  13. I went to work and just about died laughing when the maintenance man there said I should name him Puddin' !!! hahaha not PUDDING but Puddin'
  14. A video of my other tank with my 3 little guys. The tank is overstocked. As a result I'm doing constant water changes. I'm looking into getting a bigger tank or giving one of the little guys away to the right home What size tank do you think? Like minimum?? This is only 20 gallons (I know, awful) I know I would need at LEAST 30 gallons but I can't have anything super huge because I just don't have the space. They've been doing fine for the past two years now, but I know its not ideal. Anyways, on a positive note, this is their tank and I thought I'd add the rainbow to make it more cheerful hehe.
  15. I'd never taken a video of the tank from further away. This tank used to have gravel on the bottom, but it took it out for a fish I had that was on the bottom. I ended up moving that fish to his own tank but didn't add the gravel back because I kind of like the bare bottom look. Alfredo can get a little floaty sometimes if you're wondering why he's more at the top. What do you think?
  16. elvis impersonators. LOVE it hahahaha
