  1. Can't remember when was my last post but it feels like a long time and now I am back and I think I should update on my current fish keeping status. I moved to a new place last December and decided to consolidate my tanks to just 2 and keeping them bare bottom and with goldfishes only. Actually I still have a mini tank for a blue dwarf crayfish but will not talk about that for now. This is a 3ft x 1.5ft x 1.5ft tank that was previously used for keeping different tropical fishes and now it is just for goldies. 4 of them in there and oops I forgotten that I still have 1 big clown loach that I can't bare to give up. The clown loach is hiding in the back in a "barrel" shelter. You should be able to see its stripes when you zoom in. The other tank is a smaller 2ft x 1.5ft x 1ft with 6 small goldfishes. Will share the photos of this once I have a nice shot taken.
  2. I am having exactly the same problem now with one of mine for 1 week. Diff here is tank is indoor and water temp is usually around 28 - 30. Just did water change today and dose seachem stress guard. This is the only med I have currently. What should I do? I have both floating and sinking food. Sent from Android using Tapatalk 2
  3. Sent from Android using Tapatalk 2 The only high power consumption thing is the Ehiem pump. I am using LED lights and the whole system is less than 100W.
  4. Some update of what have become of the filter since then. Upgraded to a bigger 2 feet tank and converted it to a under tank sump filer. And then i changed the sump to the same 1 feet cube tank. Then soon I gotten another bigger 3 feet tank and moved the filter to it and added another tray of bio media. And the current state.
  5. It's a Canon PowerShot S110. Speed set to 1/250 with aperture and iso set to auto. The f/1.8 lens on this camera is good.
  6. Sorry to hear about losing your favorite goldfish. I now feed them frozen blood worm once in a while. Those factory packed cubes kind that are sterilized. So far no issue.
  7. Some macro test shots [MG]http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/jeffteo80/Goldfish/20121217_233845.jpg[/img]
  8. Today I moved one of the SAE back in as I see it as a good mate for gf in another thread. Did not see it bothering them yet. Hope the SAE will give up the idea.
  9. Btw what kind of GF is the orange guy. They colourful one should be a Ryukin right?
  10. Mine planted with ADA aqua soil. The goldies like to sieves the soil for any food the had sunken onto it keeping the substrate very clean.
  11. And finally 3 and going great so far Having some BBA problem and tried to introduce SAE but noticed them disturbing the 3 goldies and removed the SAE after just a few hours. The slime coat is just too tasty for the SAE to resist.
  12. The angles are still small so no worries. When they are bigger, they will join the giants in another tank.
  13. Sharing with you my DIY sump tank. Mine is 1 feet cube sump tank with 6L of media. It is my primary filter for my 36" x 18" x 18" tank. Water is overflowed down onto the top of the multi tier plastic drawers, rained down the medias packed in the drawers and pumped back up passing thru the UV filter before going into the tank. You will need a bigger one to hold more media for your big tank. The blue container on the left is to hold fresh water for my auto top up.
