  1. I am now maxed out on Goldfish. We got the last of our fish in today. Already have the 4 Calico Wakins. 2 - Sanke Gold 3 - Black Opal Shubunkins 3 - Wakins 3 - Black Opal Wakins I wasn't able to get pictures of all of them. Will get the GoPro charged up and get some underwater shots. Black Opal Shubunkin, Sanke Gold, Black Opal Wakin Black Opal Shubunkin, Wakin Wakin Black Opal Shubunkin, Sanke Gold,Wakin Black Opal Wakin Black Opal Wakin
  2. Anyone instered in theses Calico Wakins, you can PM for eBay link.
  3. All the fish are gone with the excpetion of a white fancy goldfish. Couldnt get rid of him. Found him a t pet store in a tiny aquarium. If anyone can ID him pleas let me know. Not the best pic, he doesnt like his picture taken. Removed the 2x8 trim boards and replace them with 2x6 trated wood. Wish I origionally did that. Did a water change at the same time. I had to get in the pond to get the backboards off. Almost fell from the algae on the floor. One plant that actually grew from a lot of 4. Got these plants in a box at Lowes. What a waste. This board resembles how far I want the bog to come out. Avout 48 inches x 24 inches x 17 inches tall.
  4. We had way too many. We couldnt decide wich ones to keep. So we just got rid of all of them, except for fancy white goldfish we found at a petstore that was in a tank way too small for him. We only have the 4 Wakins and the white goldfish now. I am making a BOG for the pond and will add 4 comon Wakins and three Black Opal Subunkins. Keeping it at 12. That sounds like a good number. I hate getting rid of fish. Will also be getting some Chinese Banded Sharks. They are shy right now, probably because I dont have enough fish in there with them. I would love to breed them. I have never had the chance to breed goldfish before.
  5. They are in my 750 gallon pond. Those pics were right when I took them out of the bag. I got them on ebay, he is sold out now. I can PM you the link. He may add more. Sorry about that I got busy.
  6. We received our 4 baby Calico Wakins today. These little guys are awesome.
  7. Thank you, There may be some good combos, Im a fraid I wouldnt be able to get rid of them.
  8. Thank you. As of now I have too many fish. I have Wakins, Orange Comets, Tangerine Comets, Blue/WHite Goldfish, shubunkins, mixed Koi, Platinum Ogon Koi. I am in the process of getting rid of all the fish and just keeping the Wakins. We went a little overboard when buying fish. Plus I dont want any mixed breeding.
  9. Here is my 700 gallon above ground pond. Made with 4x4 treated lumber. Originally had a whiskey barrel liner for a bog. Filtered with Luganua 2100 and a Laguna 1000 UV filter. It has been running since June 2018. I took down the BOG last winter, too small and the plants were growing like crazy. That was a big mistake. Ever since that, I never had a clear pond as I did when we had the BOG. We have way too many fish. In the process of getting rid of all the Koi and most of the goldfish. I am also making a new BOG. I hope to have that done soon.
  10. Anyone know whats wrong with this goldfish? Looks like some kind of eye infection. Got him this way. All the others are fine. I have him isolated right now. I want to treat him. Any help will be appreciated.
  11. These clowns are captive bred and have never seen an Anemone before.
  12. I have a RBTA, its hiding behind the rocks. Just got it a few days ago.
  13. The 120 would be the best option. As it has deep front to back. Nice footprint for your rock work. I regret doing a 55g. Do some research before you buy anything. Get all your rock at one. Every time you add new rock, it will start the cycle over. Get a good skimmer and set up a refugium with a sock filter. You can go with T5 lighting or LED. Don't need a MH light, those are out date and would require a chiller. If you go with T5 go with a 6-8 bulb set up. If you go with LED, get a reef compatible system, not the one that are sold at Petco/Petsmart. Once you have your rock set, let it cycyle for about 2-3 months before adding anything live. Weekly water changes. Get a good test kit. After 2-3 months start adding your cleaner crew. About 5-6 months you can start adding fish and corals. Don't add to much at once, as this will spike your amonia. After 5-6 months you can drop your water changes to every two weeks. This is exactly what I have done and I had no problems. Best to use RO/DI water, it will reduce the algae breakouts. Also you can hook up a phosban reactor in the refugium.
  14. Finally added some corals. Pulsating Xenia Mushrooms Birdsnest Orange Monti Zoas Frog Spawn Torch War Coral Green Star Polyp Fish 2 Blacker Ice Clowns Star Blenny Scooter Bleny Diamond Goby 6 Line Wrasse Sandsifting Star Got out Clown in yesterday, Video of them in the drop tub.

  16. Here is some more updated photos. Saw some awesome rock at a LFS, I needed more anyways.@Courtney - Just waiting a few more months to start adding some coral.
  17. So much life, we find new things all the time.
  18. Here is a couple full tank shots. 60 Pounds of Cherry Premo Picked Deco Live Rock (Florida) 60 Pounds Fiji Pink Live Sand 6x39 T5HO Lighting (2 Blue Plus, 2 Purple Plus, 2 Coral Plus. This last shot is of the quick thinking on how to get my light to work. The light was too big for the tank. I didn't want to wait to get a hanging attachment. I glued some wood on the back of the trim. Looks pretty good. Everytime I look at the tank there is something new on the rock. I love it. I will probably pick up some more later.
  19. Hickers survived and are in the tank. Not sure if they will survive, since its a new set-up.
  20. Finally starting to get my reef tank together, Here are a few pics of what I have now. Just only added the Live Rock. Will get some tank shots after the dust clears. Found a few hitch hickers, Pistol Shrimp, Snails, Starfish, and Hermit Crab
