  1. Haha, I love it there. I havent been in a while, but I would love to go.
  2. There is nothing I find more relaxing these days than lying back and watching my fish swimming about their tanks when I wake up first thing in the morning or before I head off to bed. Its peaceful and they give me a sense of purpose. I love them. This is the home of my three goldies. One large calico ryukin I called Apple, a small calico Ryukin I called Strawberry, and a small red cap oranda I called Pocky. It is a 35 gallon and has been running since I was in grade seven, which is about seven years ago now since I became very interested in aquatic life and I rescued a tiny red cap oranda from death.. my younger cousin was keeping him in a one gallon, and wanted to get rid of him, so I took him into my own hands and found this site and bought a 10 gallon and everything for it. Couldnt have done it without the help is this site, I guess I never totally thanked you guys, thought I would throw that in there. I will take pictures of the guys later tonight I think and post them in the goldfish photo section if anyone is interested. and here is my fairly new tropical tank.. started running it maybe just over half a year ago. Home of five neon tetras and a dwarf frog I picked up yesterday. I might be looking at getting some male fancy guppies tonight. I will post pictures if I do. and here is my new beta I picked up yesterday! My other one passed away after having him a few years sadly. He seems quite at home though, a bubble nest has already started to be built after a couple of hours only. I might have a job in the fish section at this pet store I used to work at two years ago, I am very excited. They never let females work out front, but I might be the first one since opening years ago. I have bought my fish there for years, and I was a hard worker when I worked in the back with the puppies, birds, and rodents. Wish me luck!
  3. So I have decided I want to redecorate my goldfish tank. I wanted to get a natural look going, so I wanted to buy some natural gravel and fake plants.. but my question here is, should I keep some of the old gravel due to years of the good bacteria build up? I have had this tank going for five or six years with the same gravel, so should I just lay the new stuff on top? Its been FOREVER since I set a tank up, so if I remember right I just let water run through the new stuff.. Thanks for any answers... and I am so sorry if this is somehow posted in the wrong section.
  4. Thanks so much everyone this really helped! I might try keeping some in mesh or something and just put a new layer over it.
  5. Im unsure if this is the right place to post this, but this was my best guess.. if Im wrong, sorry! I was just wondering.. I was wanting to put new gravel into my goldies 35 gallon tank because its really faded since I have had it for about five or possibly more years. But I was thinking, theres probably good bacterias built up in it. I was just wondering the best way to change the gravel over since I want a compleatly different colour and sort of a tank make over since its been the same for years. Anything would help, thank you!!
  6. Thanks guys! Yeah, the telescope is really big, hes probably the second biggest fish I have ever owned.
  7. I am sooo in love with all of these fish you just posted!
  8. I used the flash because otherwise it was blurry.. I wish the lighting in my room was better, but it should be in a while when I move to my new room. and this one is for my art page.... its called "Lucid Dreaming"
  9. Maybe six years ago now I found this site when I rescued a goldfish from my cousin who wanted to kill him to get a different fish for her tank. Aaah. Then I was hooked. This web site helped so much, Ive never had to use any other.
  10. I just looked it up under google images and Im disgusted. Dyed was bad enough, this is just freaking rediculous. Who thinks of these things.
  11. I keep my betta in a 2 gallon with a filter that doesnt have a strong current, and he seems very happy. He has built a nice bubble nest too. I have heard that if they where in a big tank, bigger than 10, they can stress because they would feel that they had too much space to gaurd as their territory. Just what Ive heard. 5 gallons is perfect though.
  12. Love the bubble eyes! I cant seem to find them anywhere around here at the moment.
  13. I catch and release. My dad and I always used to go. Sometimes I feel bad and I am a vegitarian. But I dont know, I havent gone in years. Maybe I will just stick to frog catching and releasing. =P
