  1. Oh, they are beautiful! All together, I imagine they are stunning! What a cute bunch...
  2. While it is a good idea to know your water, etc, etc.....I can tell you that for the past 9 months, I have a telescope who does next to nothing. She is the least active fish I have ever had. I have 11 right now. I have prazi'd her and the tank she is in more than once....I have salted it, I have moved her, etc. She literally will do NOTHING until that food is dropped in. SO, while, you should rule everything else out, just know that it MIGHT be just the way this fish is. Bummer, but maybe.
  3. I have ONE black fish that has stayed that way....and now that I said that, she will probably change. My oranda is still dark after almost a year of having her. My black moor is now a big fat orange boy. I guess they aren't called "goldfish" for nothing....
  4. WOW! You can pick some beauties! I love the black ones, but they are all treats! When do they come?
  5. I love fans! The are the understated beauties of the fancy goldfish world....
  6. I really hope you can get this sorted out and not lose anyone else!
  7. THAT is a gorgeous fish! That tail....I am a sucker for a long beautiful tail like that. Nice score, fantail? Whatever-I would steal it in the night if you were closer. Just sayin'.
  8. Love that Panda! I have/had one....but she is now a Polar Telescope.....I love the black and white! Your fish look great!
  9. Mine are doing the same....it is cool to watch....as long as you love white ranchu!
  10. Thank you, Bruce. She actually didn't make it....I come home from my errands and she was gone.....I was afraid she wouldn't make it.....
  11. Sakura! Thanks for the sweetness! I have to tell you that Isis is GORGEOUS! Wow, what a pretty fish. Those telescopes are cool....and I am so sorry reading about your Yoshi....doesn't it all just S U C K sometimes?
  12. S-that is a good idea. She isn't looking great as I head to bed.....ugh, I feel so bad for her. She is half upright, but not really. If she survives the night, I would be shocked....but if she does, then I will have HOPE! I really feel like is she makes it thru the night, she will be OK.... I will let you all know! Thanks for warm welcome back..... :heart
  13. I just tried to hand feed/put food in her mouth and she kept spitting it out. Damm.
  14. Looks like she took good care of them-they are gorgeous!!!
  15. Yep-she is safe outta the big tank and being salted tonight. I will see how she does overnight. Hopefully she will eat. We'll see! Thanks for all the concern!
  16. She isn't eating so great....at all. I tried to get her close to the food the other day when she was still interested, but I she wasn't at all interested in it just a bit ago.
  17. She didn't even fight when I handled her.....and it almost looks like she is a slow in her breathing.
  18. Thanks all! She is the tank in our bedroom, it is warm and smaller and I salted it a bit ago. I think I will give her a shot and see.....her wen is chewed down to the gill opening.....it is ugly. I will post a pic and you guys can see what it looks like. I have been SO lucky with all my fish...they are happy and healthy....ugh, I am not sure I am equipped for this!
  19. I feed Omega One-always have-the sink. I do feed some veggies from time to time, but I have a ryukin that is VERY sensitive, so I have to keep it kinda boring. She is in salt now, I will see how she does over the next 24 hours.....she just looks miserable.....
  20. So, first-my apologies for not being on here lately. Between work and kids, I have been crazy this summer. BUT-I do have something I need to talk to you guys about. As many of you may remember, I have a little orange oranda that I more or less rescued from Petsfart. She was scraggly and sad when I got her, but I healthy and beautiful. Until lately. About a month ago, she became a floater. She did ok, but spent most of her time at the top-ate well, and managed to swim about sometimes. Well, over the weekend, I noticed she floated mostly in one corner and was having a hard time controlling herself to eat. And then this morning, she is side floating, and it looks like she has been chewed on. SO sad! I love this little fighter and she isn't doing well......her wen in almost totally eaten down to her gills on one side. Needless to say, she now out of the big tank and in with Hope (who is the MOST inactive fish ever! and might have her own issues).....SO-my question.....do I euthanize her? I will post a pic when I am up to it..... I really don't believe in prolonging the inevitable when it comes to my pets....and whether a fish or a kitty, I hate to see them suffer..... Just weigh in and let me know what you all think......and thank you!
  21. Amen, Sister~ I have three and a betta tank and sometimes feel like all I do is get out the python....I love my fish though! But-no upgrades in my near future!
  22. Cuteness. Makes me want to get a reason to set up my QT.......kinda.
  23. WOW! He is a beauty! Where did you find that guy? Nice find!
