  1. I have several koi in my tanks and the only time I have one chasing another fish be it comet or koi is when one of the fish is a female and the koi is trying to be sexy for the girl and chase her. If you have more than one tank you may want to move the koi for a while as this behavior usually stops after a while. I've had to move some of my koi before for the same reason. Good luck. Carrie
  2. You didn't fail your little fish. The fact that you tried everything you could says the opposite. Your other fish should be okay. Good luck and sorry for your loss. Carrie
  3. So far I've got a shubunkin and a fan tail both going on seven years. This has been the longest experience for me. Most of my others are between one and five years. Carrie
  4. Sometimes I look at the name tag on the person helping me if they were real nice. What ever name is on their tag I'll name my fish that. I have so many I have to be creative. LOL Carrie
  5. All of my guyss have gotten used to the new place immediately or the next day. But most of the time they go right for the food. Goldfish are like water pigs.
  6. When you have to sneak a new fish into the house in your purse because your family says you have to many already. LOL
  7. Soo, sooo, soo frustrating, I'm in Dallas and can't get to San Antonio. So close yet so far. Makes me sort of itchy. LOL Carrie
  8. You know, sometimes fish just jump. I don't think there has to be a specific reason, but that they swim and sometimes it happens to be upward. I have alot of fish and sometimes I will be sitting on my bed and a fish will come past and out onto the floor. Usually at feeding time. In my 55, when I go to feed, I have actually had the fish throw another from the tank onto the bed because of the excitement. It just happens sometimes. The best thing you can do is to prevent it. Go get you a cover and when you arent around have that over them. The thing is, fish don't realize that the world outside of their tank is not made of water, so they go in all directions. Think about what dolphins do. It's not always due to a bad thing, its just something that can happen. Carrie
  9. Thats funny lcwinne, the store I go to was stand offish at first too, and mine also has the indoor koi pond. It's so great. I guess they figure most people arent into the fish like they are. It would be hard to work in a place like that because when I first started going there, they thought I constantly bought fish to replace fish that had died. They acted sort of weird about it, then I told them that I do rescue for comets and commons and they had a different outlook. I think they thought I killed my animals frequently or something at first. Now they just know that I keep hundreds. I still am self conscious though because sometimes I feel like they think I'm weird for wanting feeders as pets. The man that owns the store told me, "Well the bass have to eat them", after I said to him that, I sure hate that they are regarded as food. Talk about making a person feel odd. I wasn't being insulting, but I was just saying it because I happen to love them. Then he charged me a dollar for each feeder because of my comment instead of 15 cents, as though my opinion changed their value. I have never had anyone do that. I wanted to be mad, but then I figured he wouldn't own a fish store if he didn't have a love of fish. I still love the store and the people that work there but sometimes the world moves in very odd ways. Carrie
  10. If it has flourescent colors it may be a neon tetra. Look up tropical fish on your search box, and then go into the sights that have these fish. If its not a neon tetra then see what they have photos of to see if your fish matches any you see. Carrie
  11. My guys like to go up into the filter outflow and root around. I think they suspiscion that there is some hidden goodies up there. Going through my fish room is like going on the log ride at six flags, when you walk through, you get splashed as they think it's feeding time. Zyenthillias, it sounds like your babies are boy and girl, for all the, they shouldn't be doing that, and touching. LOL. You give it more time and here in a month or two you need to watch for eggs in the early morning. You just might have you a batch of juniors. Carrie
  12. When I go to the Boutique the man that works in there says, "oh its the goldfish lady." How he remembers I dont really know. I've been waited on so many times by other people but this one person right from the first buy seems to know me, and I have to say that my shy self feels a little odd being stereo-typed as the "goldfish lady". LOL I love it though, really because actually he couldn't be more right. Carrie
  13. I absolutely love that setup. I would love for my fish to have such, what is the word, luxury. You have very lucky babies. Ooh and maniacholic, I looked at the photos of your kids and they are all so pretty. Both of you guys seem to spend alot of time in selection and utmost care for your babies, I really resect that. You both have very lucky pets to have such attentative parents. Keep up the good work. I am just beside myself and feel as though I need to get with the program Carrie
  14. That is to neat. You said it was an amatuer microscope. Do you mean one of the ones you buy for kids? How much do those cost? I have so many fish and when something goes wrong I have to play alot of guess work when it comes to possible parasitic infestations. Do you have a digital. I'm so behind in the world of technology I need to be slapped Where did you get your microscope at? Carrie
  15. Hi, I don't know if this will help because I'm not familiar with the products that you have in Japan, but Maracyn is actually erthromycin. Thats the antibiotic that it is. Is there any product available to you that contains erthromycin. If there is then it should work as well as Maracyn. An antibiotic tablet containing tetracycline should work on popeye also. If you are willing to pay for shipping you can get the maracyn from http://www.drsfostersmith.com in two days. I have ordered from them before and they are really great to work with and the meds will be there in two days but it is kind of expensive. I hope this can help you. I don't know that popeye is contagious, but if the eye isn't treated your kiddo will probably loose the eye. Thats not a pleasant thought but I don't think the infection surpasses the eye. Hope some of this can be helpful. Carrie
