  1. Gee! This is amazing! I've always wondered if goldies have teeth! I could swear I'd seen some in a big goldfish. But I could never have been sure. Thanks a lot for sharing this information.
  2. Wow! What an amazingly cute goldie! Looks like my Usher!
  3. I'm sorry about your poor fishes. How is the last one doing right now? Best wishes so that he pulls through. I'm sure experts would help you diagnose the underlying cause of this problem. As for the disinfecting part, I use Methylene blue, until the water (of course without fishes) turns deep blue to black under normal lighting, soak it for 5-6 hours, rinse repeatedly, until there is a very faint colour left in the water that you add. Keep in mind that Potassium Permanganate, Methylene blue, Malachite Green, all are potent stains and will stain your silicone sealant.
  4. Dawwwwwwww! I want one too for my tank! So cute! If it's labelled food grade HDPE, you are fine.
  5. Thank you very much for your assurance! I read a few days ago that cordless phone base stations emit a huge amount of power continuously, even when you're not on a call. The article said old models of analog cordless phones emit very little radiation, compared to today's digital, high frequency phones. That's why I was worried, because they have a fraction of body weight than us, and might be susceptible to the radiation doses that might reach lethal levels in them. Thanks a bunch for reassuring me. I'm getting one straight away!
  6. With the slashing of landline rates, I was just thinking about buying a cordless phone for my home. I am just worried will the cordless phone do any harm to my fishes as the radiation will be there 24X7 in my home and surroundings. Any day, fishes are my first concern, and I can do away well with a cordless phone. If it harms my fish just a bit then I shall not purchase one. I also turn off WiFi when I'm done working. I had narrowed down to a 5.8 GHz cordless phone instead of a DECT one, which operates at 1.9 GHz. Because, as far as I know, 5.8 GHz waves would get absorbed more and won't penetrate the water as much as 1.9 GHz waves would. The cordless phone can be kept at a maximum distance of 15 feet away from the aquarium, with no walls in between. So kindly can anyone advise me whether I shall go out and purchase a cordless phone or shall I refrain from doing it? Thank you everyone!
  7. Thank you for the link. Do you think Gelatin is harmful if fed daily? Because we love to eat sweets, that's why we think they'd love it as well!
  8. Mine prefer oranges. You can cut a thin slice (1/8 of the orange or less) and float the slice in the pond or tank. They'll attack it once they figure out that it is food. I only do this once or twice a year. It is a special treat. Really? Can't we feed citrus fruits daily? What do you feed them as a staple?
  9. My Prodac Test Kits were marked for use within 4 years after manufacture. Another local brand marked that was good for 3 years. Maybe we could take 4 years as a rule of thumb if stored as directed.
  10. Hahaha, the farting pic! Good idea about feeding them unripe bananas.
  11. Yes, we get frozen peas, but all are laden with artificial colours and preservatives. That's why I avoid them. Are you sure of that or is that just an expectation? Frozen peas are bright green, and freezing eliminates the need for preservatives, so that seems rather unlikely. Duckweed? Gee, that's a swell idea! We get duckweed to buy here. Can it be propagated in my planted aquarium? Duckweed will grow in an aquarium, however if there are goldfish in the aquarium they will we every last bit of duckweed, so it can't propagate there. Just put it in a tub with the used water from your water changes and it will grow well. The packet of freeze dried peas list Sodium Benzoate as the listed preservative. That's an irritant, right? Yes, I am planning to grow duckweed in my planted tank. Thank you! Yep! I am planning to make my gel food from instructions here on Kokos. Is gelatin safe in the long run when fed daily? Thank you so much for the information. Guess what? Last winter, my fish was all bloated up from broccoli and he was farting. FART ZONE!
  12. We face this problem in early summers when the humidity is low and the temps high. If adding water seems tiresome for an everyday job, I guess your best bet is an acrylic cover for the tank. The water would evaporate much less, and the sound would be dampened. If you can't get an acrylic cover custom-made, you can buy a 1 inch thick polystyrene foam sheet. Grab an exacto knife and cut it out according to the shape and size of the top part of your tank.
  13. Can I feed them sweet lemon? Citrus limetta?
