  1. My like button isn't working for some reason or I would have liked your recent photo's. Your fish are beautiful and absolutely love your current pond photo's. Beautiful flowers/scenery. I hope Lasagna is getting better each day.
  2. I love all the new pieces you added for your tropical tank. It looks gorgeous, Steve. The photo above of the rainbow fish is beautiful. That's so neat that all your goldfish are out in your pond. Do you still have that other tank up with tropical fish? That is/was beautiful also.
  3. Thanks for sharing all of your tanks with us. Your fish are beautiful.
  4. That's awesome that their one year birthday of having them is right around the corner. They are beautiful.
  5. I'm kind of secretly hoping he might join Koko's. (secret is out now.) I do kind of think he might if there is ever a problem with any of his fish though. He told me that he never thought of a "fish forum" before. So at least he knows now.
  6. Thanks for the chuckle. During a water change one time ...I was suppose to take water out, but noticed just in time that the water will filling up by mistake. I almost had an overflowing tank.
  7. Thank you. I don't think I'll be getting a photo of them though in their new tank. He did email to thank me again though. His brother did show me a photo of the 130g tank with his other fish. It was nicely done.
  8. Agreed. They are beautiful fish and photo's. Congrats on the two week mark.
  9. Oh Mikey, I'm so sorry for Koko's pineconing. Thinking good thoughts here.
  10. Yes, I agree with that Crystal. I did find a really good person that I believe will take great care of them. I hope his friends didn't think I was nuts with tearing up and with my voice cracking up. It really was hard. I cried after they left. I think I will do better after I sell the tank because it's drained and everything is out and waiting for a new owner. It's just sad to see it empty but I'll be okay. Thanks again, Crystal.
  11. Well, I ran out of likes or I would have given you another one Aubrey and you one Koko. Or, you can just give yourself one Koko since you own your own forum. I'm sorry you had to re-home your cockatiel. I really, really, thought I'd have my gf for years to come. I am just stressing out way too much about a lot of changes going on here along with more personal things that I keep thinking is going to be over with but yet it continues with calls and appointments and... One day.............................hopefully.
  12. Thank you Aubrey. I'm just happy they have each other still. Yesterday was such a busy day with people coming in and out while I was trying to take care of multiple responses on my goldfish and another tank. I finally sold my 34g. I was lagging on that.
  13. I thought I'd update my thread because this has had a lot of views. I also wanted to generally thank you for those that had posted. Your words meant a lot to me for this was really hard on me. I found a great home for my three big beautiful boys. I did not want to separate them and I wasn't going to. I had a few people wanting them but I narrowed it down to this one young man. He unfortunately had to work but his brother and two of their friends took the long drive, which I thought they said it took them 1hr 40min. to get over to my home. The young man already has a 130g up with 5 goldfish and he has another tank (55 or 60) that is empty at the moment waiting for his new/my fish. His Mom has a fish tank also. I had asked him several questions and I liked his answers. He uses Prime, believes in 20g per fish, his water changes weren't ideal but he told me he'd be better with huge weekly water changes after I had told him what my schedule was.I told him about Koko's forum and gave him my username so he can look up any on threads on Captain, Dexter, and Jersey Boy. I told him if there were any problems or questions don't hesitate to call me or get help from Koko's forum. I feel confident I did the right thing even though my heart hasn't caught up yet. Thank goodness my daughter is on a weekend retreat with the Leadership Ag Members (she's secretary again). She had told me I was crazy and stupid for doing this prior to rehoming my fish. She said this out of love because she knows how much I love the three of them and enjoy them. Good thing Taylor was gone because I didn't have a dry eye yesterday. Today is somewhat better. I just have to remember that Captain, Dexter, and Jersey Boy are in a really caring new home. I decided to keep my tropical tank for now and see how that goes. It might be too much for me not to have a tank all together. I'll have to update that sometime soon.
