  1. Seems to poop normally, but only saw that once. I haven't seen any fish poop in many years. Brown, solid. No change to the swelling.
  2. No. Getting rid of everything, not starting up. Male is now acting like a normal fish. Following the female, picking at plants, grazing, all the good stuff.
  3. Unknown for a bunch of that, nothing added nor odd/wrong with anyone. 0, 0, 5 or so. Comes out of well like that. 4k plus gallons. 50% w/c last week. 2011 Planted. Homemade filters + bog.
  4. Hello. This fish has been living in my koi pond for 2+ years. This spring, I noticed this lump, marked by arrow. From the top, its really obvious. Other side is normal.
  5. Thanks for replying! I haven't been here for awhile and was worried this forum succumbed to FB, too. I am trying to rehome the corries and plecos w/o much luck. The plecos are BNs and several babies just left the cave! I haven't had any luck netting out my other fantail that's in the koi pond. I should of tried to catch it early in spring, there were a few days that would of been easy to do so. The fish in question is still happily zooming around, even occasionally joining the corries in their races, too. He doesn't like frozen foods, but has a bloodhound nose for flake and pellet feeds, lol. It's funny how fast goldfish warm up to aquarium life vs koi, very stark contrast!
  6. I'm still trying to catch the other fantail in my pond. But the one I have caught is now active and very happy. He, has stars, is alone in a 125gal for now. There are corries and plecos. He is doing figure eights and seems way too active. But maybe its normal. I'm assuming he is either happy or trying to get out to find others. He is still young. All other tanks of these fish that I have seen have been of very lazy, slow fish, thus, it feels odd. Thoughts?
  7. So I can't link pics through my phone, but it seems like the forum did update my info, even though it told me it didn't work....ughmmm, okay...lol
  8. It's somehow working through my phone, so for now, I can take my time getting it to work on my pc. Red one was spotted today! But I have to link pictures, can't just upload them, so will have to stop by later to link them. =)
  9. I can't change my password, it won't let me because of random errors that aren't true. Then I keep forgetting my info, since this forum uses a different name for the UN instead of the signup one and then randomly Facebook link-through will work, but not always. Gahh!!
  10. Released them back to the pond today. Video link to their release. https://www.facebook.com/Chancy.Grays/videos/1147627738604066/
  11. It shouldn't leak unless there is a crack or it's pulling water over the edge of the filter. Easy to replace the motor on the HOB AquaClears, just twist and tug downward. Then twist while pushing up to put in the new one. They should be cleaned out regularly and make sure the intake is high enough that no sand is getting into the filter.
  12. Thought I'd update, since in another month or so, they will be going back into the pond. There's a new filter on the tank, others were broken in one way or another, so used that as an excuse to get a big ol filter. Now I have an FX5 & a FX6, one on each 75g tank. Also have a new heater on this tank, old one messed up and tried to cook my fish! =0
  13. Quick flash pics. Needed them for the drawings I'm doing, they didn't mind, though.
  14. Anyone have a giant Ryukin and a picture with a ruler? I have one that is as big as my fist and growing, so wondering if anyone has big guys.
  15. I bought 2 tiny goldfish late 2014 winter. They were smaller than a quarter in body size and were in the tank for a bit until my koi pond heated up. I just caught both, they were in the bucket for a few days warming up, then moved to the 75 gallon tank, which I had turned the heater off to. Now the heater is back on. Pond is 40, house water is 50, tank with no heater is 60 and tank with heater is 70-74, so it was a massive temp difference, thus all the special precautions. I have added these fish before, but never made it large enough to survive winter. These two are large, but I am too paranoid about them. The black and red has been out for 2-3 winters now, so she/he will be fine. Posted a picture of the older goldfish when it was smaller, it's now as big as my fist, named it Cupcake. Then a picture of the two at their still fairly small size, but day of their big move into the pond. Then a few of their transfer. Red is a Ryukin named Magikarp, white and red is a Fantail named Goldeen. Magikarp is quite friendly and lets me pet it when I clean the tank. Both warmed up to be just a day after capture, it was really cool to see them hand feed and come right up to me, even though in the pond, they avoid me. =) Anyone else winter over fish in the house?
  16. Hey you guys, just updating that I released them into my pond a week ago. They went mia on me, but now I am seeing them again during feedings. They stay with the Platy and koi fry in the shallows and under the plants. Koi are so far leaving them alone. They even seem slightly larger and very happy. =D
