  1. thank you for the video, I'm going to check in with the rest of the mod team and get their thoughts
  2. welcome back! Your new goldies are cute!
  3. I think the more bronzey color that a blue oranda has in it, the more likely it seems that the 'blue' is going to be unstable. My guess is that yours will eventually be a lovely white and orange oranda, but it will likely take quite sometime for that to actually happen. Color changes are lots of fun! it will be interesting to see how he turns out
  4. I know I've talked about this thing before but I love this little thing for long tubing and at 7.00 you can't beat the price http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=23699
  5. I'm sorry to ask you for more pics, but this one is pretty blurry can you set her up in a small tupperware (so she can't move around a lot) and try to take another well lit pic and/or video (if you think video will be clearer) I definitely see the midline indentation, is there any redness in that area? has it gotten progressively deeper or stayed about the same? I am not seeing the holes, if you could try to get a clear pic of these and point out where they are that would be helpful How is behavior otherwise? still active/eating etc.?
  6. Okay, so someone told me about this pump that can be used in or out of the water! So, this pump could actually be used to do everything including siphoning!!! http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3578+4587+4590&pcatid=4590
  7. Rust is a concern in a fish tank do you think there is still rust in the tank? Can you get a new pic of lipstick? Sometimes if cysts are too deep and unable to burst on their own we need to medicate. I just want a pic to assess if we need to take a more proactive approach or not
  8. If you don't want to do DIY most companies sell replacement reflectors http://www.urmstonaquatics.com/hagen-fluval-replacement-light-reflector-2-per-pack-120cm-x-40cm.html
  9. My fish eat small snails in the tank all the time, they've never bothered the nerites or apple snails though
  10. Assuming all your maintenance is on point, there's nothing you can really do to prevent it. Fish don't live in a sterile environment, nor would we want them to. Despite our best efforts they do get sick from time to time just like we do Could you post a pic of the new cyst? Is her behavior still normal?
  11. that is quite a few missing scales. They will grow back, but do keep an eye on the bullying. If it gets to rough you may need to separate again for a bit (in the case of two healthy fish it may be best to remove the bully for a little while)
  12. You've already gotten great advice just wanted to say welcome!
  13. You can't vacuum the gravel with the pond pump. You use the python attachment and tap to create suction to vacuum just like normal. When you're done vacuuming, you take the gravel vac attachment off your python, attach the pond pump to the python tubing, put the pond pump in your tank and plug it in. The pond pump then pumps water out of your aquarium, through the python tubing and into your sink. When you're done draining, unplug the pond pump to turn it off but leave it on the tubing, then go turn your tap on and fill up the tank.
  14. Congrats on the flowers! The fishies and your tank all look lovely
  15. I'm so jelly!!! But I already told you that can't wait to see how it turns out!
  16. My pump runs 600 gph it claims. Harbor freight .com is a good sight to check out. They have 200 gph pumps for quite cheap (12 bucks), and 650 gph pumps for 40 I think. Mine is an aqueon, I bought it at petco years ago.
  17. Her blog was called a sizable undertaking, weird that the link isn't working (search in the 'blog' tab on the main forum) Yes she had some trials and tribulations
