  1. They are great. Steve looks a lot like my Newton.
  2. I hope Newton someday looks as beautiful as your fish!
  3. Thanks everyone. The cat is Nelly and we think she likes the warm lights more than the fish but we have to clean the cat hair out of the tank pretty often.
  4. http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii596/cometredcapp1/P040612_18410002.jpg Thank you, I think he is great. we are moving house in july and he will go in the larger tank after the move. I´m going to get some plants for him then too.
  5. Sorry for the bad pictures from my phone. But here is my fish Newton. http://s1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii596/cometredcapp1/ http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii596/cometredcapp1/P030612_22460001.jpg
  6. Hi Minnie, I agree with everyone else - get the fish if it looks healthy. when I started with goldfish I did everything wrong but as long as you have a big enough tank and do enough water changes in the beginning it should work out. I lost my first fish because I didn´t know they needed so much room and the tank was too small. For a year now, I have had my red cap oranda in a 62 liter tank I bought at a flea market with a BIG filter. We change 50% of the water one week and 80-90 the next (get Prime to treat the water). He gets pellets, mushy peas, cooked egg white, a little spinach. He is now the size of my fist (I´m 12) and will be going into his 120 liter after we finish setting it up. Fish are fun!
  7. Ok, thanks alot! now we have cleaned the tank and its looking GREAT! I dont think I have to use salt, because the spot is fading away, but if it does take longer than expected, I will put some salt there. Thanks alot!
  8. Great, I have an old kitchen-weight, that should work, and I think am going to order some new food for Newton,thinking spirulina flakes, or something like that...

  11. Hi, I just woke up and noticed a white spot - like a pimple - on Newton´s wen. He is acting fine. The pimple is pure white, not fuzzy or ich like. Newton is around 3 US inches, alone in a 62 liter tank with a large eheim power ball, 2 plants and 4 smooth rocks. Thanks, Comet
