  1. Very impressive! The tank isn't half bad either.
  2. He's amazing, Dawn! How big is that tank? Oscars are on my list of fish to keep one day. I love their frumpy faces and they are a really beautiful fish Thanks for sharing.
  3. Ooooo I love that tank and everyone in it! That first picture of Jasmine made laugh out loud for reals and I want Luka to come live in Montana with me!! I love that face!! Thanks for sharing.
  4. Downsizing can be a bummer, but you gotta be able to take care of you and then do the best by the fishes. The tank looks great and hopefully you can get some more up and running in the near future.
  5. Sorry to hear that she didn't make it. Good luck with the new guys.
  6. As far as baffling the filter goes I think this is a pretty slick idea. I am experimenting with using java moss as a baffle right now and it is working okay. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    He's super handsome, Dawn, what's his name?
  8. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. It is the most unpleasant thing to have to do, but know that it is ultimately your final act of kindness to a dear friend. Again, I'm sorry.
  9. Congratulations, that's a fine fish.
  10. He's beautiful, Shelly, congratulations. I love the name as well. Very regal.
  11. Ha ha we all love to torture ourselves with goldfish we can't have. I really like the lionheads at the end.
  12. Holy cow, they are ginormous!!! Congratulations on a wicked good find, and I hope everything goes smoothly for you and the fish during QT.
  13. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/123853-filling-out-the-dd-form/ Not sure if you wanted the link to the page or just the form........so....One of each. I hope one of them is what you were looking for. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) * Nitrite Level(Tank) * Nitrate level(Tank) If you have a test kit, take these readings before you do a water change. If you don't have a test kit and can't get one immediately, please take samples of tank and tap water to your fish /pet store and request a test. Demand numbers for each test. * Ammonia Level(Tap) * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) Please test tap water. It may contain ammonia or nitrate. Tap water often varies in quality with weather/season, so don't just report an old test. * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Difference in the pH of tank and tap can cause distress in your fish. We need both tap and tank results. * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) If you don't have KH and GH tests and have municipal water, you can often get this information from the water company. Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? Please answer both brand and type. * Water temperature? If you don't use a heater, give the the air temperature. * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? Please answer both questions. If you aren't sure of the volume of the tank, give the length, width, and height. * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? By the "size" of the filter we mean the gph/lph that it claims to turn over. * How often do you change the water and how much? Please answer both questions. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Please answer both questions * How many fish in the tank and their size? You may give the weight of each fish or the length. For goldfish, include the variety, and use (and indicate that you used) the standard length (sl) -- the length from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail fin. You can estimate length. For example: 1 oranda, 3" sl, 2 pearlscales 1.5" and 2" sl. For other species of fish that don't vary in tail length, you may use total length, from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail fin, but please specify. For example: 2 bristlenose plecos 3" tl * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Water conditioner means the agent used against chlorine. If you don't use a water conditioner, say why, for example, "well water." "Water additives" include anything else that you regularly or recently have added to your water, including buffers, water clarifiers, algaecides, etc. * What do you feed your fish and how often? Give the brand, type of food (sinking/floating pellets, gel food, steamed vegetable, etc.), and how frequently you feed each. * Any new fish added to the tank? If you have added new fish in the past few months, indicate which ones, the duration of quarantine, and any treatments you used during quarantine. * Any medications added to the tank? This includes any used recently or currently in the tank. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. This can be a long answer if you have a sickly fish. You can link to old D/D threads if we have advised on treatment before. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? List all physical symptoms. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? List all behavioral symptoms.
  14. I was just thinking about doing this same thing with some java fern and annubias. I had been rolling it around in my head for the last couple of weeks and then low and behold there is a thread with wonderful photos. It looks amazing Jenna! I really like the way you have positoined the smaller plants to look like a winding vine. Well done
  15. That's an insane amount of fish, but they are ridiculously cute! You should consider talking to them about the benefits of living life in moderation.
  16. Your fish look UBER guilty in the third photo! Nice photos, nice tanks and beautiful fish!! I'm super jealous of your anubias. They be all dark green and luscious looking.... Well done, Lisa, well done. Congratulate yourself!!
  17. Welcome back Alicia! Your fish are looking fantastic!
  18. Wow, those two are amazing! I can't decide who I like more....
  19. Wow that's a lot of bettas!! I need to search and see if you have any threads of your tanks posted, as they look pretty impressive as well. Looking forward to updates of the sorority tank.
