  • How many Goldfish
  1. I have trained almost all my goldfish to eat from my hands, just waiting on the little pearl scale now :S
  2. Thats a hell of alot of water! Is that to keep nitrates under control I presume? Have you considered biological means to keep nitrate down? its actually because I haven't seen much growth in my goldfish, I use to do one water change a week but other members suggested me to do 2 water changes a week instead ahha
  3. I have never kept any plecos to be honest, so I haven't really noticed the amount of waste they produce I find it kind of ironic because plecos are suppose to clean up the tank ahha
  4. Haha thats true, Oscars are quite a mess sometimes The thing is my goldfish aren't that large at all, none of them over 3 inches long and before every feeding (feed about 3 - 4 times a day now) I see the barebottom of the tank with quite a bit of fish waste haha
  5. awesome fish ahha How did you get such great quality photos? I can never seem to focus on them cause theyre constantly moving haha
  6. Haha yeah! I'm still keeping some tropical fish now and I do about half the maintenance on those tanks than my goldfish tank D;
  7. I'm already doing 2 50% water changes a week on my 75 Gallon goldfish tank and I have kept many other types of tropical fish that do not require this much maintenance and I was just wondering if there are other breeds of fish that would require this much maintenance?
  8. @ Artsy - haha as am i! So youre done school doing illustration and graphics now?
  9. @ Artsy - I just searched it up haha I might actually buy one of those it seems useful and I don't have to keep clipping my net haha It seems like youre from Ontario as well?
  10. Here is just a little trick I use when I wait for my tank to drain and don't want my fish getting sucked into the syphon hose. Draining can take a while so I usually just leave it and come back in a bit but to make sure my fish are safe I put a fish net around the opening of the syphon to act as a barrier so the fish would not be sucked in. Another method I use for a smaller syphon hose are the magnetic algae scrapers. I use these to secure the hose in place (around the corner of the tank) and block off enough of the opening so the fish could not be harmed. These are some images of what I mean: The green net is hooked onto the opening of my canopy, I basically used the canopy feeding lid to clip onto the net handle so it would stay in place. http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa252/RyosaykuX/DSC_0018.jpg http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa252/RyosaykuX/DSC_0020.jpg http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa252/RyosaykuX/DSC_0022.jpg Hope that helped some people! Have a great day
  11. Planted tanks are awesome I will be adding some hardy plants to my goldfish tank soon, as soon as i get more money LOL
  12. @ shellbell - No the bottom is not painted its just because the lights in the room are turned off and the lights in the aquarium are on so it looks as if it was painted But its just on a metal stand and barebottom. @ ShawneeRiver - I think I see a little growth on my Blue Oranda and my Ryukin but then again It was right after feeding time so I still have no idea if they grew or not since i see them everyday haha. But I had my Ranchu the longest I guess? Since the Summer and then the rest i slowly quarantined after. It was sad that my first Tiger telescope died though :S
  13. Thank you everyone I sure hope they will grow to be larger fish though @__@
  14. @ smurfishy - are you watching the video at the highest quality? @ jojo & jasper - Yea I just finished feeding them haha
