  1. Awwww! They are darling! I can see why your so proud, just look at that coloration
  2. He's so cute! I wonder how big that pond is
  3. I believe it! My dexy does it too! At first I thought she was air drinking, but I started noticing that she only does it when I'm in the room . I totally agree that they are super smart!
  4. Aww I love your new fishies! Sounds like you got some great advice already I'm assuming that your tank is about 150 gallons, or about 567L by the size... So it looks like your at about 792lpg. I'm not terribly fluent in my Liters, but I'm thinking that your at about 5x filtration. Goldies tend to need a bit more (I'm at about 10x filtration myself) since they're so messy. I think that should be ok to start with, just keep on your water params
  5. That is too cool! I can't wait to see them!
  6. Their all too cute! I want to steal them
  7. uh-oh I hope my fish don't decide to spawn! My poor plants lol...
  8. :happydanceThat is probably the best news I've heard all day! So that would mean he's done with his treatment completely then right?? But yes, he's doing great . Swimming happily and trying to eat everything (including my fingers!) Thank you for all of your help!
  9. Oh wow! I love the set up you have going! I've never had fertilized eggs before... It sounds rough. How do you collect the eggs from the main tank? My moor has egged a couple times and it was horrible lol! They got everywhere, the stuck to everything, and they'd squish/pop when I'd scrape them up! Are they different when their fertilized?
  10. Hi again! LT had his last round of Prazi and today I'm doing a BWC to get the rest of the medication and salt out (he has been dosed at .1% during treatment.) You had mentioned something about a sal bath of 3% when he was finished with his MM's and Prazi. Should I go ahead and do that? Thank you to everyone for your continued support! Oh and here's an update on the water params too: Nitrate: 5ppm Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm PH: 7.5
  11. He is just darling! Your right! his camo is really good! I decided to go with an albino bristle baby for that reason
  12. What kind of soap dish do you use? Is it fully submerged? I ask 'cause I'm looking for suggestions myself
  13. Sooo Lt is doing great now! He's growing in all of his fins, except one pelvic fin. He's learned to zoom around the tank even faster now! Here's a video of him eating out of my fingers (he snatches it at 14s): He's so hard to get pictures of! He's a fast little dude lol You can see his itty bitty fins here: Just wook at his wittle face! Compared to when I first got him: What do you guys think??
  14. Got them!!! Sorry for the poor photo quality.. My camera isn't very good lol He takes it out of my fingers here in the first 2-3 seconds. The rest is just him swimming around Here is his second piece.He's a little hesitant here, but I figure it's 'cause he one itty bitty piece already lol!
  15. Oh I know! I've been giddy all day because of it!! I'm sorry I'm sure they'll come around eventually! I think that he just figured out that scary lady=food god I'll try as soon as I'm finished with my essay ! Hes just so darn fast and my camera is so darn bad lol!
  16. I just have to share my excitement with everyone! LT ate out of my fingers for the first time today!!! I had been noticing that LT would swim around my fingers during his Metro-med feedings. As I was cleaning his tank the other day I stuck my pinky in his direction. To my surprise, he came up and 'kissed' my finger!! Today, I figured "What the heck, I'll give it try" and held the food out for him. He comes up and snatches it from me with out any hesitation! I love that little guy Thanks for listening to my happy rant
  17. Aww yay! I can't wait to get my bristle-baby... What kind of driftwood did you end up going with?
  18. Congratulations of such gorgeous fish! I love Cheetos coloration and Valentino's wen ! Pear and Hariett are just darling Bugsy is just adorable! I love moors above all else though lol... My moor dexy went from being a deep velvety black to more of a black with bronze accents.
  19. Oh wow... She is gorgeous Fang! I think I'm in love It's amazing how little Walmart fish can turn out isn't it??
  20. Oh nooo! I'm hope you get it sorted out soon!!
  21. Sorry about that! I had a busy day yesterday... But yes, a pothos can totally go into a HOB! I personally have a Biowheel, so half of my HOB doesn't have filter media. I'm not a big fan of the thought of the roots getting tangled up in the media. What kind of HOB do you have?
  22. Yup! But it keeps coming back... in hard to reach places. Like inside the Ehiem water output (or whatever its called lol!). That's kind of why I was wondering if it was harmful lol
  23. I have a pothos, and the fish do fine with it . They chew on the roots when they get too big and so far there hasn't been any ill effects. Another plant that is a good nitrate eater from what I hear is mangrove. We actually have a member here (Acro) who sells them: http://www.kokosgold...-sale-or-trade/ http://www.kokosgold...mangrove-trees/ I recently bought one myself There are also a ton of low light plants you can add such as: anubias, amazon swords, anarcharis, java fern, and a few others I'll look for for you I have my pothos and will put my own mangrove (when it comes in!!) in this: http://www.walmart.c...-Caddy/19287920 I hope this helped! Edit: this link is all about low light plants: http://www.kokosgoldfish.com/Plants.html
  24. Welcome to Kokos! I can promise that your in good company here!! I love your fish... They are so gorgeous! As for a new fish, I would go with a moor or a lionhead! I personally have a moor, a ruykin, and a little rescue lionhead, and I love them all!
  25. I can pick some up tomorrow hopefully . As long as it helps for walls and not just plants lol!
