  1. Both need to just have their roots in the water, but they'll be fine with no gravel or dirt. Bare roots in water would work very well. Why do they lie.........hmmm.... who knows? Because the employees don't know any better and this is what they were just told? Because they do know, but the most important thing for them is make sales? If you choose to shop at the chain stores, you need to go in armed with your own knowledge so you don't have to rely on the intentional or innocently oblivious advice you get. Best bet for your fish and plants needs is to find a good lfs. so ur saying i can just have them float on the water and they would continue to grow
  2. So can the acorus one grow with the tip above the surface? why does petmart lies.. they say it can all grow completely under the water...
  3. So just the roos in the water eh? does it have to be in the gravel? or just need water is ok?

  5. Also for the two grass thing, are they white and green acorus? Can they all still grow in the water???? I got this from petsmart... and just realized that mondos dont.. I tried putting on images, but dont know how... it's not on website, it's on my own computer.
  6. Thankyou! yeah i had rocks and hidding places already, it's just there are 11 in a tank, and that's the only tank i got, dude to family issue, i cant use up any more stuff, so that's the only tank i am sticking to lol
  7. so how would the male be interested in her? I think I have a few that are gravid... and I can't exactly tell which is male. I got an over 2 inch long minnow with a black patch on its head, I assume its male? if it is a male, i think it's quite old, because it's over 2 inch long, it's pretty big for a minnow, but yes it does look perfectly hearlthy! so I dont know if he is still fit enough
  8. but isnt there suppose to be a male which gets the female gravid or something? or does the female gets gravide herself and then the male do something? I mean, she isnt mating with any males... sorry, i am probably not making any sense here...
  9. Hi, so it seems to be that she is gravid, cuz her belly is really bulked, and yes it is round, it's like u just blew air into her stomach, it's really big. And when is the right time? a week? a month? and yeah, I do have male fish, I have like 11, so there must be male lol
  10. There are male, but I am sure it's not the same male that got her pregnant lol? O and I Posted this to the subforum. Thanks!
  11. I understand this is goldfish forum, but I am sure there are a lot of experts knowledgable about minnows. I got this rosy red minnow oever 1 inch long from the store last day, and it got a huuuuge belly, it does seem to me that it is pregant. Now I heard that minnows lay their egges but dont get pregnant? I also thought maybe it got disease? but from its sympotoms, it is very agile, and healthy. So I guess they do get pregnant? How long does it take to lay eggs? it's been 4 days already.

  13. my fathead minnow (which looks quite wild) nibbles my comet goldfish, which is bigger than him. I have caught that several times, and my comet goldfish just quickly runs away, is it a problem? Most of the time, it seems ok, but sometimes when they get close, that minnow always tend to poke him a few times, and sometimes follows rite after my goldfish
  14. it's just i want the wind current to move the water and that will probably affect it, I am still looking for stuff to cover over
  15. the biggest problem that I am concerned about is getting stolen by the bird...
  16. since I found there is natural wind moving the water surface well for enough oxygen and they get nice natural light also natural day to night routine everyday, off course, I wont put it in direct sunlight, my balcony is quite good, it always get enough light, but never too much. was wondering anyone do that?
  17. THe cup is very hard, I assume it is plastic? But basically it's one of those cups (not instant ones, it's permanent)that we can use to drink anything from. It even has a small icon showing you can eat or drink in it. Since it's food safe for us, I assume it's ok for it to be in coldwater rite? so my goldfish have a place to hide in.
  18. Actually I only want java moss, that's all I would liek, but then it's just so hard to find... my near by petstore dont have it..
  19. u can actually grow corkscrew val without gravel? like how you just tie java moss to anything and it will grow?

  21. I saw this strong blue gravel the other day, not sure if they grow real plants like corkscrew val? does it matter? by the way, corkscrew val works good for white cloud minnow rite? does it get uprooted by comets?
  22. Now I do got a problem, they are crapping, but my fishtank is on the ground level, I can't suck the waste out, is there any other ways???
  23. Thanks for your replies guys, today, I accidentally turned off my filter and guess what, the first no longer stays in the bottom, and can perfectly control its swimming patterns, it is as lively as it was before, I did some research later saying goldfish don't like such strong water current. Most of the problems I saw it doing earlier, dont seem to be there now.
