  1. Cute fishie! I wouldn't worry too mcuh about wen trimming. As a matter of fact, there are many folks that actually encourage wen growth
  2. I would keep checking goldfishconnection.com and maybe send the guy an email to see if he can help you out. Cheers.
  3. Just a shot in the dark here, but what about heating lamps or maybe those propane ones that are used outside of clubs (you would have to have some ventilation, but this might be an option to heat your basement)? Only thing is it would be hard to regulate temperature. I don't know . I'm interested in what you figure out.
  4. I would combine your fish, and reduce the fancies that you want to 2 thereby making the total 4? and you could maybe put a beta in your 10g
  5. Didn't you say you were getting a new tank? Why not put oscar with your current fish and go from there.
  6. I know what it feels like to be broke. But Stakos brings up a good point. Have you asked your parents for help in maybe buying one off of Craigslist? I hate to say this but you might consider rehoming Oscar if you cannot provide for his needs
  7. I don't know your set up, but what about investing in a water changer? If you had to you could attach it to the end of a hose and turn the hose on full blast for suction. Sorry, I'm probably not much of a help
  8. I was going to say that I think your current might be a bit too strong. I'm not there so I will let you decide. I think they are sticking to that corner because of the current.
  9. Do they stay in that corner? And what are your water params?
  10. Aww. Love your fish, they are gorgeous!!! Thank you very much for sharing!
  11. Sorry to hear about your rough day, I've had my fair share of those of late so I can relate. What does trace amounts mean, could you post those amounts please? My fish will start gasping at the surface as the nitrates start approaching 20.
  12. Beautiful! I wish I had the funds
  13. I will be ever so jealous if he's both a ryu and a fantail!!
  14. Koko, I think that's the same video that he posted in his DnD thread. Is that right Avepico? If it is, a video of the behavior will help. And I agree with koko.
  15. I'm curious as to what kind of sand you used? Jess brings up a good point, did you wash the sand? If not, I would do another large water change. After water changes or disturbing the sand, leave your filter off for at least 20 minutes so that the sand can settle. I also keep my intakes high so they don't suck up everything. Edit: Sniped
  16. I know how this can be. Might I suggest using your phone, take a zillion pics and pick the best ones? I have to do the same thing, annoying I know. Pet stores will do it for free and if you have the money, I would get an API freshwater test kit. Good luck hon, we're here for you!
