  1. I have a 75 gallon with stand and lighting in the Chico, CA area for sale. On Craigslist I have it listed for $200 but I would sell to a Kokos member for $180. You would need to pick it up. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I think my pictures are too big off my phone to upload. I'll try and do it from my computer later. My two new ranchu in QT are healing up nicely. They had ulcers on their backs when I purchased them. The wounds were large and had fluffy white growth coming out of them. I did 1 tsp per gallon salt, with some methylene blue in the water, and I am feeding them a homemade kanaplex gel food. They look better every day and the wounds are turning into black coloring on their backs and closing up. The black will likely fade as they continue to heal. My new butterfly telescopes have been in good health, but then I accidentally almost killed them today ?. I was doing the water change and the python knocked the lid into the tank almost smashing them ☹️. They seem unharmed but I am keeping a watchful eye on them.
  3. It's been a while since I've been on the forum; I mainly lurk around now. Some updates: I have since gone from a 55 gallon, to a 75 gallon, and now I have a 125 gallon for my goldfish. I don't have any of my original crew now This last month Red died shortly after her 5th birthday with me; she had a tumor that developed over the last two years, but it never seemed to bother her and she still was her spunky, active, and hungry self. Then when I came home from an errand and went to feed the fish I noticed she was bleeding profusely from the tumor! I quickly mover her to a quarantine tank and then did a 100% WC on my main tank. She died within a day. I am sad to lose her, but I do have many new goldfish friends since I was last on Kokos. I got a few new additions this week that are doing their time in quarantine now. If I can be good and keep you guys updated I will. I am still going to college while working as a dog/cat groomer. Fish keeping is my downtown hobby that I love and I am going to try and be more active here again, kokos always puts a smile on my face; plus hardly anyone gets my addiction to goldfish
  4. Thanks, I did pick up some Metroplex from amazon and Kens had a food with it in it so I got some of that as well. I bought 2 new ranchu recently that are in QT for ulcers (present at time of purchase), I bought some of kens other medicated feed to help them recover.
  5. I think kens was out of stock but I'll check amazon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. I like to have meds on hand, and I can't seem to source this anymore? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. How old are the fish? If they are young sometimes their eyes grow at uneven rates and have a chance of evening out a bit
  9. I have used it in my tanks, makes the water really clear and adds some good minerals. This is what I use: http://www.amazon.com/Microbe-Lift-Calicium-Montmorillonite-MLKKB4/dp/B000TZ1R7Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407097010&sr=8-1&keywords=koi+clay
  10. Hi there, I'm glad your fish is dong so much better I also wanted to say that I am glad you did not jump into treatment for costia. Many people see something that looks similar and jump to treatmenWt, that oftentimes compromises the fishes health more than the actual illness, so good job! and I was one of the two people who had the sick fish. We both got fish that were imported from China and we never really figured out what the illness actually was. Half my black ranchu made it, my friend lost all of hers. I'm glad to hear your cutie is improving.
  11. I can't see the post numbers on my phone? Who won?
