  1. He has his moments where he's upside down, but is usually able to right himself. Mainly just floats around the tank looking so sad. Thanks Stratton! nice to see you too! Thanks Alex! I'll try to avoid the veggies until necessary. Thankfully he's got a good appetite
  2. I'm feeding him 20 pellets a day split up into 4 feedings of 5 pellets. I'm soaking the pellets for about 15 seconds prior to feeding too. It breaks my heart to see him so floaty! Thanks 4prettyfish me too!!
  3. so beautiful!! I miss my sorority tank, they're awesome.
  4. how can you be angry at a face like that!? beautiful photos & fish
  5. hey everyone, long time no see! i've been incredibly busy, hope everyone and their fish are doing well I have a couple questions for you guys. first things first, Monroe has dropsied again for the 2nd time Luckily I think I caught it early because we're on day 2 of MMs and Epsom his & scales are now flat I was going to do a preventative prazi round while he's in a qt tank and on MMs since I won't be using salt. Is prazi okay to use with epsom in the tank? secondly, the MMs are making him floaty and I was wondering if it's okay to feed veggies between MMs to help with constipation. I've asked this question before but I completely forget the answer : Thanks!!
  6. I have been wondering how these guys are doing!! They're looking fantastic! I just love hula
  7. Oooh what a pretty fish! Congrats
  8. Aqua clears are great filters, however I don't think an ac50 is the right filter for a 55 gallon tank. I have an ac50 that I use on my 20 gallon qt tank and it's not that powerful. You would be better off upgrading to two ac70s or one ac70 and a canister.
  9. It's recommended to have 10x the turnover rate for goldfish so 550 gph for your 55 gallon tank. A lot of us here including myself also prefer to run 2 filters in case one breaks. If the filter you have now is not causing any problems in your tank and you only have the one fish, I think you could get away with it let's see what others have to say as well. What type of filter are you using?

    Meet Crimson

    He is beautiful!!
  11. Oh Lisa Waddles is adorable that's so awesome you and Jared were able to work this out! Can we have a video?!
  12. Lisa gave you great advice, but since you have comets, typically a longer tank will be better in the long run so they'll have more swimming space. Just my 2 cents whichever tank you decide, be sure to post pics!
  13. Beautiful fish! The tank looks great! I also just removed all my gravel and my fish seem much happier too
  14. I'm so happy to see he is eating, Chelsea!! He's a trooper
  15. Opis is a cutie I'm so sorry this has happened and I have my fingers crossed that you will find him a new home
  16. Aw, speckles is adorable it's just wonderful to see how much he thrives in your care!
  17. they are all looking so great! Kai is getting too be quite the fatty! Can we have some full pond pics, please?
  18. Some distributors charge more than others. For example it's $90 for dandy orandas to ship overnight to CA, but only $35 for Rain Garden to ship from Hawaii. Granted RG only offers 2 day shipping and DO doesn't. I only have experience with these two though and have never personally shipped a fish to someone else.
  19. I love my 40 gallon breeder. Its held up pretty well over the past year i've had it so no complaints here. You can find one at the petco dollar per gallon sale, otherwise they aren't very cheap.
