  1. I'm going to keep looking for Romet B then. I pray somewhere somehow there is a store that has it. Sigh. Thanks man
  2. Just want to let everybody know that the 2 weeks antibiotic treatment of Lowry has finished, and sad to say, yielded no positive results. Maybe it's too late. I've also been keeping on eye on nitrate levels, making sure it never goes beyond 20 ppm. He seems to be getting worse, and is now upside down in the bottom of the tank or at the surface 65% of the time.
  3. Gorgeous indeed. Congratulations!
  4. Hahaha at this Your tanks is amazing.
  5. He's adorable. The video was worth the neck strain
  6. Beautiful! Congratulations! Snag is and will always be my favorite from your crew #partialtoranchus
  7. Hugo never fails to wow me. And Wakka is too cute! You're an excellent fish mother!
  8. I am officially Pep's biggest fan. Probably one of the cutest fish around here! I demand more pictures of Pep!! Gorgeous tank too!
  9. Does he bottom sit, even when the light is gone? My fish usually bottom sit at night, especially when the lights are off. I just assume its just them resting or sleeping during night time. During the day, they're very very active.
  10. That is one good looking oranda. Love the body shape, dorsal and the balanced distribution of wen. Just beautiful. When does he usually bottom sit?
  11. Very cute. They seem to have a lot of potential. Congratulations!
  12. I think I would kill for that SB oranda or orkin.
  13. Just finished the 2nd of back to back water changes a couple of hours ago. Nitrates are down to 10 ppm from 80 ppm. Will monitor and as of now, if it doesn't spike up, next water change will be on Monday. They seem much livelier now. Thank you.
  14. The black and white one is pretty unique! Your fish are gorgeous. Can we get a whole tank shot? Hehe.
  15. I wanna squeeze those cheeks!!! Haha
  16. What a beautiful tank! Tora has the most eccentric color pattern
  17. Okay, will do right away. Will keep you guys updated. Ceramic ring neglect! I'll also save up for a higher version of my filter pump, a Rio 12HF for 750 gph just to be sure.
  18. It's a 75 gallon tank with 5 fancies. Franklin and Nucky are around 5 inches, while Jimmy, Lowry, and Shane are around 3 inches. Lowry is currently in a 5 gallon hospital tank undergoing Metronidazole gel food treatment for his SBD. I used to feed them Hikari Lionhead 2-3xa day but now I feed them with Gel food once a day, enough for them to finish in 5 minutes. FBW every other day. I'll be honest, I hadn't cleaned the ceramic rings in quite a bit, so I cleaned it this morning and removed a lot of gunk. Could that have been it?
  19. It's crazy. The day after I did a 50% water change, I checked for nitrates, and the test tube was red!! This explains why all my fish are floaty, including Lowry's SBD issues and why Jimmy doesn't seem to be growing! Thing is, I checked the tap water, 0 ppm, checked Lowry's hospital tank water, 5 ppm. I do water changes 50% every Mondays and Fridays. My filter turnover rate is 660 gph, I have another supplementary biological filter in the water and I have a couple of small Java Ferns, plus two airstones. So what's wrong?
  20. Thank you! I'm just a big blob now. Hahaha. And fyi, the fish from the 20 gallon tank are different from the bigger one 2 years later. Well, I'm sure you guys knew that already. Haha. Amy, how did the switch to goldfish happen? Haha.
  21. Yes, I never had to use the vodka when euthanizing. They all went peacefully with just the clove oil and water I'm very sorry to hear about losing your 4 fish. We saw how you did everything you could to save them. I know its not much comfort, but this will have made your bond with the remaining 2 even stronger.
  22. Yep! Although I am not too disappointed anymore, as in the article where Steve from Raingarden describes what a true ribbontail looks like, it is as if he was looking at Vanille while doing so. I'm sure! Vanille does have a gorgeous tail.
