  2. Hey everyone! So i took some pics earlier of the babies. Heres one, i have quite a few this coloring. its a very light orange. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2317.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2322.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2323.jpg The next one is the smallest one of them all. Its SUPER cute though with really bright coloring. It may be stunted but im not sure. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2324.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2325.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2327.jpg Heres another one, hes really small too and also is missing a gill plate? i think that what its called but hes had no problems whatsoever. I have a few with the same coloring. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2328.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2331.jpg Heres another one. Its calico but mostly white. I have two like this and the other calicos are mostly orange. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2335.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2336.jpg Heres one of the orange and white ones. most of them are this coloring. You cant see the white that well in the pics but its there! http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2337.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2339.jpg And last is this guy. hes going through a color change right now so he looks super cool! http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2342.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2343.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2345.jpg So obviously i didnt take pics of each individual one but they all are very similar to one of the pics. So just let me know if your interested!
  3. Yes, i will be posting pics of each one this weekend and then i will be willing to ship.
  4. YAY!! I am so happy! Yes im sure the olive garden parking lot fish deal was a first! Im glad that shes fitting in well! Its nice that i can get on here and see how she is! She is for sure gorgeous! And yes there are 16 more babies left!
  5. If its easy enough yes. I really want these babies to go to good loving homes and i cant be sure they will if i take them to a pet store.
  6. Theres isnt really any well suited ponds around here that i can think of, plus its getting so cold that id be afraid it would freeze them! I wish i could find more homes but im afraid some of them will have to go to pet stores. I would ship some but i dont really know how to do that and id be afraid that i would package them wrong and they wouldnt survive. so if there is anyone else besides Courtney that is nearby let me know!
  7. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2200.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2199.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_2198.jpg Heres a few pics! let me know if your interested!
  8. Hey guys! sorry for the wait. Ive been so busy but ive still got the little ones for now. I hoping to go check out a few stores this weekend. also, courtney i do have an all white baby. I took some pics of her and will post asap.
  9. I dont have any that are completely white, yet, but there are a few that have gone from fry green to yellow/white. There are also a few that are mostly white with a few orange and black spots. I can post some pics of those for you. Ive never heard of Olathe Pet Shop, but i will look into it. I am looking more locally, Shipping kind of confuses me and id hate to do it wrong and kill them.
  10. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_1957.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_1956.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_1955.jpg http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g361/lraeX/IMG_1953.jpg Here are a few pics of the babies!
  11. I had that same problem a year ago. I tried everything then finally bought a couple of assassin snails and they have gotten rid of them all. I highly recommend them!
  12. I have some pics taken i just need to upload them tomorrow. I just would like to give as many of them to my friends before i take them to the pet store. Im not sure how good of a chance theyll get at petsmart! lol Pics to come!
  13. 8 months ago my Oranda laid eggs and i raised the fry. I didnt think many would survive but now here i am stuck with 22 baby orandas. I need to find new homes for them because i cant keep up with the tank cleaning. I live in Overland Park kansas so if anyone near me is interested let me know! There are a lot of calicos and solid orange ones. I will post pics later!
  14. Thank you everyone. You helped me alot. Thanks!
  15. Well Lola passed away today. I still havent gotten the metro and she was getting worse and worse by the hour. Im just glad shes not suffering anymore. Thank you for all of your help everyone.
  16. Thank you KoKo that means alot. Lola is barely hanging on. She cant even stay upright anymore. She just lays on her side on the floor. It is terrible to see her like this. I just hope she isnt in too much pain. Thanks for the support!
  17. I have called everywhere and i cant find anywhere that carries metro. I ordered some online and did one day shipping so hopefully that or the goldfishconnection order arrives soon. Lola is looking alot worse. She is just laying on the bottom breathing really heavily and she has pineconed even more. Im not sure she will make it through the night. Is there anything i can do for her or do I just wait for the meds to arrive?
  18. okay i will call in the morning. Should i not feed her anything till then?
  19. ok ill put her in qt and add the epsom. The filter is cycled but ill go ahead with 100% daily. I can get frozen blood worms, but i dont know where i would get metro?
  20. Here are some top view pics. http://i1098.photobu...eX/IMG_1284.jpg http://i1098.photobu...eX/IMG_1283.jpg http://i1098.photobu...eX/IMG_1282.jpg http://i1098.photobu...eX/IMG_1281.jpg And here is a quick video of my set up http://s1098.photobu...nt=IMG_1285.mp4 EDIT: i have an airstone in the qt tank and its set up with the heater set to 78 should i put her in?
  21. Ive got the qt tank set up. Its just a 10 gal with an aqua clear 20 on it but hopefully it will get the job done. ive also put a heater in it and set it to 78 ish. Should i go ahead and put her in and should i add epsom salt? I have some if i need to. Im uploading so pics of her and a quick video of my tank set up. Its bare bottom with a few quartz with anubias attached to it. I switch off cleaning the filters every other week as well.
  22. Lola is now starting to pinecone. She may have last night too but not as noticable as now. She still will eat though which is good. Her tummy was starting to turn red from toughing the floor of the tank and the others were picking on her so shes floating in a colander at the top till i set up her qt tank. I gave her a pea with epsom salt in it and she ate it which is good. But im wondering is this normal for swim bladder issues? Its been 4 days and it happened so quickly that im wondering if its some internal bacteria or something. Any ideas? EDIT She also looks more swollen on one side.
  23. Well i checked as best i could and didnt see anything in her mouth. Im hoping she will stick it out till the meds arrive but she seems to be getting worse. she kind of leans to one side now when she bottom sits. I dont know if that matters or not but its something ive noticed. She is breathing really slowly too. I feel so badly for her.
  24. I was afraid of that. Im still not sure though because it looks like she is almost choking or coughing on something. But i dont know what it would be. there are a few stray peices of gravel left over so it could be that but i doubt it. I have ordered the meds and will keep her as comfortable as i can till they arrive. Thanks for all your help! I will keep you all updated on her progress.
