  1. Hi there, my friend just gave me her 20 Gallon tank yesterday. So I put my new little guys in there for their QT. It's a step up from the 10G they were in before. Anyways, it will be in the room my cats are in over night, so I was wondering if any of you have experience with those plastic tops for tanks with the lights in it. It fits on a groove on the inside of the tank. Should that be safe for cats? Just in case the want to sit on it? What do you guys think?
  2. Very cool! Love Bettas. Please post photos as soon as you bring him/ her home...
  3. By the way, just wanted to add that I think it's great that you're trying to safe the little guy.
  4. I wonder if he is just really skinny and not deformed. Does he eat ok?
  5. Wow, what a great surprise! And such a cute little guy. I love babies.
  6. Did you email him the video, so he could see for himself? Maybe that might help.
  7. I think I almost managed to block those numbers out.... 1st tank 5G $30 "upgraded" to 10G for about $40 55Gacrylic tank + stand + filter about $500 Fish: 2 comets $3 each (Just got two more for $0.13 each) Pond so far pond liner and Filter: $295
  8. There is a really good article on goldfish connection about how to care for your fish during a poweroutage. it's under goldfish care.
  9. You're probably right. It's easier to keep the dosage under control that way, too. I think his "heavy" breathing might have been nerves, as he does not seem to do it so much when I'm not sitting there Staring.lol His gills look normal. So I guess I'll do the salt and ich first, like you said "das groessere Uebel" Thanks Fang.
  10. Thanks Amy. With all the water changes, do I just redose the prazi every time? Because I think it says to leave it in there for 3 days?
  11. Gosh, that is a pretty fish. Never seen one like it before. You should definitely get it!
  12. [*]Test Results for the Following: [*]Ammonia Level? 0 [*]Nitrite Level? 0 [*]Nitrate level? 0 [*]Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)? PH 7.8 or a little bit higher [*]Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)? same [*]Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API [*]Water temperature? 74 [*]Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 10 QT tank seede with media from old tank, running since Friday [*]What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? whisper not sure how big. it came with the set, wouldnt want to put anything bigger right now as there is already a bit of current that blows the fish around as they are so tiny... [*]How often do you change the water and how much? 50% or more dayly [*]how many days ago was the last water change and how much? today 50% [*]How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 1 inch and a bit feeders [*]What kind of water additives or conditioners? prime [*]What do you feed your fish and how often? 1 time dayly GF connection flakes [*]Any new fish added to the tank? both are new [*]Any medications added to the tank? no [*]Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? 1 tiny ich spot one of them came with [*]Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? no, very active So my question is: I've brought the salt up to 3% since friday to treat the ich on the one fish. I does look a little bit better. Do I need to get a heater to bring the temp up? Should I be adding any prazipro as a precaution in case they have flukes or other nasties, as they come from the feeder tank or should I wait until the ich spot is dealt with?
  13. Wow, beautiful fishies! Congratulations!!
  14. Thanks Fang. Pete is the one that's mainly white and Paul, who is really a Pauline is the more orange one.
  15. Very cute babies! I bet they love having all that space to swim around in.
  16. Thanks. Have to do something about the background. The water from the bubble wand keeps leaking in there...
  17. That looks amazing! Like a completely different set. I like the new hardware, too.
  18. Thanks guys. So funny to watch them. They make my big guys look so slow...
  19. Here are two new photos of Pete and Paul... Haven't showed them off in a little while. IMG]http://i1100.photobucket.com/albums/g419/snufflesrules/Fishie%20Friends/003.jpg[/img]
  20. These are my new little guys. The silvery green one looked "blue" in the shop, but that must have been either the lighting or ammonia burn, because 3 days later he is looking like this... The little orange guy just swam into the net with him, so of course he had to come, too. They are called Neptune and Poseidon, hoping that strong names will help them to a long and happy life... They are in my 10G QT tank right now. Hope the link works. I do this so rarely that I have to learn it new every time.lol
  21. I'll take some now, but thinking back his "extraordinary" color might have been ammonia burn.lol He's almost completely silver now after just a few days and his friend lost the black on his fin, too. I'll take some photos right now.
  22. Thanks Ashlee. I''ll check that out right now.
