  2. there is praziquantel available to you in the UK.. i am pretty sure they call it flukesolve in the UK there is praziquantel available to you in the UK.. i am pretty sure they call it flukesolve in the UK Another very good alternative, made by the same company, is called Wormer Plus. I have heard of wormer plus and emailed the man about it . Fluke solve I'd stronger but I have heard bad things about fluke solve . ? Thanks for your help I'm getting him a separate hanging basket for feeding time . I'm going to give him 3-4 small meals a day ( 3 soaked pellets , bloodworms etc ) I will probably order some wormer plus
  3. Thanks . I don't have praziquantel in the u.k and the other two are perfectly ok but maybe I will just as a precaution .
  4. Any food ideas ??? He has got 3 soaked pellets today . What shall he get tomorrow roughly how much ? Also has anyone think this could be something else as he has always been like this and healthy for a year !
  5. Thanks for the quick reply . It's a problem him being so skinny and I'm trying to fatten him up . Have you got any ideas on good foods for this ? I might get a floating fish hanger to keep him separate for feeding but he is great friends with my other fish and I don't think he would like being alone.i do clean the gravel thoroughly every water change . I might order some wormer plus . He was a fair fish so they probably get the bad batch if you know what I mean . I hate to see him so skinny . Thank you for the info I will find out some good foods and bloodworms .

  11. Yes I was only gonna give them a bit as a treat . Guess it doesn't help with orange colour then maybe I just thought that because of the name lol ! Change of topic but for homemade gel food do you need to put mutivitamins in it ? ( got the orange idea from tithra33 YouTube channel where I saw edie eating orange ) Thanks Thanks Thanks , my fish is not actually changing colour I just wondered if anything helps orange colour as I have heard spirulina does and cArotene , maybe it's not true . Yes I will probably just do that ! Thanks
  12. I have heard that oranges are good for goldfish and help with orange colours . I have not got a vegi clip but i wondered how do you feed this without getting orange juice going everywhere ? May sound silly but has always puzzled me ! Thanks .

  14. I believe Ted Judy will ship to the UK. Thanks but who is ted judy ??
  15. Blackŷ would totally thrive out there lol he is tough cookie , once he got stuck in a ornament and lasted all night in there !! Patchy might be ok . Specky would be gone in a short time he is just to gentle . Blacky
  16. Thank you . That looks a good website !
  17. I know you have probably got this sorted but just to let you know I had this tank and filter and if the filter gets unplugged or turned off in any way it takes ages to come back on , sometimes days . It is a rubbish filter in reliability so I would always have a spare one in case . !
  18. Ok thanks . I will just use the forums ones then ! Sorry koko !
  19. Thanks , yeh i guess it is Raingardens fish are so beautiful. i usually get my fish from watermarque . Pets at home is a no go for me to just to the fact that they say 3 goldies in a 1o litre tank
