  1. Thanks a lot guys . I hope it gets a bit easier down the road.
  2. I'm so sorry to hear about Gentle Wen's passing... The same thing happened to me today. I hope your doing better
  3. I'm sorry about Tiny... Loosing a baby is hard
  4. After coming home from school today, I found my 3 year old baby Klaus dead in the corner on the tank. Klausy had recently fought a hard battle against dropsy . I thought that he had started to do better; swimming normally, begging for food, alert. I don't know what happened... When I went to feed him this morning, he was bottom sitting and having trouble getting up. I thought it was constipation since he was fine before bed last night so I figured it could wait until I was home that afternoon. When I came in to feed them, I found him on his side in the corner. His gills were white and he was stiff... I'm thinking that I'm going to call our pet crematory in town to see if they'll put him to rest. Klausy is the second goldfish I had ever bought, and the first one to die on me. A little about my baby boy Klaus: I bought him three years ago as a companion to my moor Dexy. He was always my frail fishy; he had a slight curve in his spine by his tail and some buoyancy issues. Despite that, I loved that little fishy like a child. He had such a sweet personality... He was hand fed, so every time I would offer him food, he would circle around my fingers and nibble. He was always such a happy fish. I miss him so much... Farewell my beautiful Klaus....
  5. Oh wow! They're gorgeous! I want your Benjen . What do you feed those babies!?

  12. I'd have to say the streaking for my moor has been noticeable for about a week now, the ryu is a little tougher to tell since she's had permanent streaking for awhile (alex had had me on tons of medicines, but it never seems to go away permanently) and LT doesn't seem to have any issues. Edit: The streaking on the moor's tail isn't too bad, its just at a few spots on the end of her tail
  13. Not too bad. They tend to hover between 10ppm (tap and after a big WC) and about 20. The highest it has gotten was about 40ppm around last week. I was so busy with school and my friend in labor, my fishies kind of took a back seat .
  14. Its totally fine! Thanks for the speedy response! During the summer months the water gets pretty warm... Usually about this temp, with the occasional spikes up to about 82F. In the evening the water usually drops to about 75F. The temp in the cooler months can drop down to about 60F. I have two air curtains, A 35" and an 8": http://www.ebay.com/itm/350693658728?hlp=false&var= With that being said, should I get a couple more? My tank has been cycled for over a year now with one HOB and an Ehiem canister filter . I should have been more specific on the stress remark, sorry lol. I've been seeing a little bit of red streaking in my Ryukin and some darker spots on the tail of my moor (granted she's black so it's a little harder to tell). Other than that, everyone seems to be in good spirits.
  15. Hello everyone! I know this has been a talked about topic, but I figured I'd start a new thread... My issue is that my tank water likes to sit about 78F-80F during the days. I've started noticing some stress marks on my two older goldfish's tails... Is this temp too hot for them? If so, what can I do to either cool it or take some of the stress off of them? Thanks all P.S. I hope I put this in the right place...
  16. Oh my gosh... I just saw this post (havent been on in awhile). I'm so sorry this happened to you and Elvis. This thread had me in tears... Your such an amazing mamma Chelsea! Your doing everything that you can and refusing to throw in the towel. I think that motivation and energy is really helping Elvis through this hard time. You two are in my thoughts and I'm praying for a healthy recovery! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk 2

  19. Is tank re-sealing super difficult? thanks for the input guys!!
  20. Hi everyone! I found this add on craigslist and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on it? One of my main questions would be more specifically on how to re-seal an aquarium... http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/for/3860639266.html Thanks everyone!!
