  1. Thank you guys for the kind comments. I have been working away at the house trying to get the living part painted and just waiting on the flooring to be delivered. Once the living area is done then i get to work on the fish rooms. I have somehow misplaced my camera so i cant update with any pics As soon as i locate it i will take some pics of the babies. I got a large percentage of calicos so i am pretty excited about that As far as the new house i cant wait to get moved in my buddy and i put up the mailbox yesterday. We had to dig the hole twice since we put it on top of the culvert drain We were messing with it for over 30 minutes and not a car drove by to laugh at us idiots it was rather nice. On a side note I did run into a copperhead last weekend which did not excite me to much considering i am deathly afraid of snakes.
  2. That is really weird i figured now would be the season since most pond people are setting up their ponds around here.
  3. I have been working way to much on the new house and not near enough in the fish room. FInally got water today at the house. We had to wait for the water company to install a new meter so thats always nice. I did get an ariel view of the new house via google earth. Its impossible to see from the road. Besides the trees being in the way its about 100-200 ft higher than the road. Walking up the driveway sucks!
  4. Water lettuce ? is this in a tank or pond? Tanks I have lots of it probably a 12 sq ft of tanks covered in it. BIg ones, small ones, some the size of your head
  5. I found this little article on ich and it is pretty good. http://www.unclebill...m/treatich.html I personally like the "burn it out" method that is why i was asking about the temp and other tank mates. I have also had good success with quik cure but prefer not to use chemicals unless it is absolutly necessary.
  6. what else is in the tank? and what temp are you currently running?
  7. If i had to guess i would say changing 150-200 gallons in a hour is about tops for a python. This is obviously depending on how high your tanks are off the ground. I can generally change around 80% of the water in 2- 55's and 2- 75's in around an hour using a python to drain and a mag 5 to pump back in.
  8. sometimes it will grow fast enough that the fish will only be trimming it for you. But with most goldies most plants are on the menu. I do ok with water lettuce on my goldie tanks. Sometimes they will eat the roots though.
  9. I had to watch it again! My cat likes to sit on top of my tanks and watch the fish. For some reason she won't ever sit on the Dovii tank?
  10. :rofl :rofl that maybe the funniest video ever?
  11. I am more worried about moving the fish than anything. I have a few pics of the new house. Front of the house garage/ goldfish room Other fish room we have got to get the driveway fixed as you can see its in need of some work
  12. no we are closing on the 10th Finally i was starting to wonder if it was ever goin to happen.
  13. so since i have not been on in forever i figured i would do a small update on these guys. The last calico shown had a bit of problems in the QT, but fortunately after an extended stay it is felling much better The fry out of them are starting to look decent. We got a good amount of calicos and I did see my first telescope the other day out of this batch.
  14. here are a few pics i snapped today sorry i forgot to turn off the pumps
  15. sorry i will get some more pics as soon as i can. Its been pretty hecktic around here. I think i will be getting keys to the new house this week though Then i get the fun of moving them all
  16. That sounds pretty craptastic to me I will not be putting my money or kids on the line for an importer with no QT system. Thank you Elli for the video:) It really sucks since his fish look freaking amazing in the photos.
  17. O i see that is weird how many fish he has in a pond though. Maybe i am having second thoughts? Are the fish just randomly selected every week for auction? How does he even know its the same fish? Is there anyway of QTing new arrivals at the place? How big are these ponds? I must have had my head in a hole when Happysnapper posted that thread
  18. I do not have personal experience with his fish though so you must use caution anytime you get fish from someone you have never dealt with. I will always test the waters for lack of better terms and get a single fish or small order. I do like how Raingarden is by far the most transparent of them all. Pics of all angles and most have video. I plan on getting fish from him as well Then maybe i could give an opionion on other than pics. I find it odd that he has gravel in the tanks period but maybe that is just me?
  19. I have not but plan on ordering from him at sometime. His fish are nice from what i can see in the pics and his prices really arent that bad. Look at a $120 raingarden ranchu and look at his $120 ranchu and ask yourself which you would rather have. Now if $30-50 is more your style i would call raingarden. Just my opionion And if i must say about goldfishconnection i will say they get some stunners in as well. It all depends on what you feel comfortable spending on a goldfish. Everyone has their limit.
  20. Here are a few pics of the filter i built a few years back i have never ran. We may test it out and see how it does. I need to get some new pvc glue as i found mine dried up. I will play with a few different pumps to see what works the best.
  21. I sure hope so i need a few more but until i get moved this one and maybe one more will have to do. Good news is we came to an agreement on price today on a new house. I do plan on growing most to adult size but may have a few find new homes before then we will see. I would love to have a tele with a wen too. I have not found any yet though. I started noticing teles when they were probably around a month or 2. They did not pop all at once though. I sure hope they grow, grow, grow!
  22. On a side note that plant looks to have been grown emersed. I would not get partial to those nice big leaves they are likely to not look so nice and be replaced by some nice shorter green leaves. The roots look healthy so it will be ok.
