  1. Yay! More people to share with! I’m certainly taking a lot of time In setting up this tank. Ill take photos eventually and share them with everyone!
  2. I don’t remember having that problem before with my canister. Hopefully it won’t happen with my sump!
  3. Yay! A reply! I used to feed gel to my fancies and didn’t mind it. Maybe I will now, lol. I made super small batches and fed once a day and then supplemented with dry pellets. It was a lot easier then making homemade gel food by hand…I cant believe my parents let me do that…gross. Thanks for the recommendations. I’ll look them up!
  4. Hey! I have been out of the goldfish hobby for about five years or so. I have purchased a used 90 gallon tall with sump and stand/ canopy. I’m currently working on resealing the tank. Today I just received five Bristol shubunkins from Gary Hater. I’m super excited to get going with the hobby again. Looking into some interesting filtration and generally trying to remember everything. I was wondering if anyone had any good tips to share and if there are any new products/ old products that you find make life easier. Open for suggestions and questions! Also, what is everyone feeding these days.? Looking to eventually feed repashy super gold as I’ve read about it and feel it’s a good food. However I like to feed a variety. Thanks!
  5. Good luck! I think its something that may be able to be achieved. I somewhat achieved it, but i took lots of time and work. You need a big tank, lots of aquatic plants and lots of terrestrial tanks and very few fish. And by few i mean like two...maybe three....depending on the species you are wanting to go with.
  6. Id probably get a commercial one. Then you could use one pump for all your tanks in that general area. You would just need a lot of airline tubing =]
  7. I love love bristols! When i get my 100g tank someday that is one i am considering getting. They looks so graceful!
  8. I think the denser planted tank you have the higher survival rate. In the current tank i have going now i might actually have a higher survival rate on their own. My tank is pretty dense and the crypts seem to be slowly dominating the tank. In your tank right now id say it would be slim but strange things happen. Pics of my tank...its always dirty looking and the glass is terrible =/ LOL. Ill tank a few pics soon just for you!!
  9. Most of the time if goldfish breed in tank they end up eating most of the eggs....then if some hatch then they have to compete with filters, parents and water conditions. Im my experience unless you save the eggs nothing really comes about. Mine spawned multiple times and i only dealt with fry once....when i pulled the eggs out and attempted to have fry.
  10. Im very interested!!! I have wanted one for a long while but dont have a good place for one.
  11. I use food safe lubricant on my seals. I once had the same problem but my seal ring was just fine. I havent had the problem since.
  12. Is that a koi betta in that tank??
  13. My fish ate a little bit of everything, even anubias. I feel that in addition to planting heavy what you feed is also important. Try to feed them small meals often. Feed them a balanced diet too. Offering them a couple kinds of food/ types of food is good. I feed repashy, hikari, kens pellets and fresh kale. Having fresh veggies in the tank, they are more likely to want to eat those than bitter plants.
