  1. So when I went to the shop the other day and got Bailey there was another fish that I really liked but I talked myself out of buying two (Were quite pricey and I wasn't entirely convinved of their health) but I couldn't stop thinking about that other fish. So I went back today and he was still there and now he is here Meet Manny (this is him at the store, I haven't got any photos of him here yet)
  2. Yea its fine to feed shelled peas

I agree that it looks like something caused by water quality
  4. Wow you sure had an eventful day! My dad went to the emergency department yesterday and they kept him in hospital overnight so I had two trips there today, one to take him some clean clothes ans one to pick him up once they cleared him to come home Also today I did waterchanges, one on my new tank (the cycle is still bumpy but catching up!), one on my QT (poor Ray, my tosakin, has dropsy, been battlimg for 2 weeks now. He is still perky and fighting, but this is his second time with it, so I don't know how much longer I'll take it if there is no improvement soon), and one on my betta tank. Im planning on eventually upgrading my betta from his 5g to a 15g, but waiting until we get the new floors done in the loungeroom first
  5. Try adding 1/4 teaspoon per 10 gallons. It's the lowest dose I do, I've gone up to 1 teaspoon per 10g before though
  6. Are you able to get Epsom salt?
  7. First water change on my new tank, was great. So much nicer just putting the hose onto the drain and turning the tap to drain it rather than setting up the pump. I mean the pump was pretty easy too but now this is even easier. Love it
  8. I only had trouble with mine leaking was when the hoses weren't attached properly. But the heads were almost always stuck to the body when I needed to do mantainance and always had to troubleshoot to get them off. Thankfully I found a helpful youtube video which helped me get them off fairly easily. But still I hated doing mantainance on them
  9. Aw I love kitty toes My girl just had surgery yesterday to remove a bladder stone. We had been trying non invasive ways to get it to go away since December but wasn't working and it was getting bigger so we had to do the surgery. hopefully it will be all good now
  10. I was really happy they did all the plumbing for me, I would be so scared of messing it up lol I cant stop staring at it now.
  11. Haha swimming in it sure is tempting. It's been over a year since I first drew up the plans for this tank, Dec 2019 I took them into the shop and got a quote, then a year later after buying my car I had saved up enough to place the order, so placed the order in Dec last year and was so excited when I finally got the call saying it was done! They delivered it and did all the plumbing for me and filled it and made sure everything was running correctly. Going to go through ab ump in the cycle now as I have a lot of ne media in the sump but have put my old media in too so hopefully it wont take too long to settle. But it has a drain I can attach my hose to for draining it so waterchanges are gonna be a breeze And I am thrilled to never have to deal with canister filters again lol
  12. I think they would be awesome pets if you have the right set up. I love giant fish
  13. I love it Koko. First time having a sump and I'm looking forward to not having to deal with canisters again!. I love that painting too! I think it looks like a Tardigrade
  14. I sold it! To make room for a new 7x2.5x1.6 tank with a 5ft sump
  15. Well my tank just got taken away, now to wait til tomorrow
  16. Hi guys Been a bit of a hectic couple of weeks. My good friends mum died, my dad had a fall and hit his head, can't remember anything about it, my grandpa died. But in a bit of good news, my new tank is coming Sunday! Am spending today taking down my current tank which is getting sold tomorrow. Fish are having a holiday in the pond in the meantime.
  17. It's so pretty! I see everything eveyrone has said LOL
  18. I had a fish that had really bright orange for years and then within a couple of weeks his orange completely faded and he ended up completely white, he's never gained back any of his orange. I unfortunately don't have photos of the process on this computer or else I'd share them.
  19. That fish/tumor was posted 6 years ago so I think its sorted now
  20. I dunno, my dog seems to like it LOL Also my old dog once stole and ate a whole jar of betta food
