  1. For the goldie fry the foods you are feeding sound good, i like to do lots of small feedings throughout the day. I just judge by how big they look in the tank on when to upgrade them, I dont really have a set age or size. For culling I only ever cull ones that have deformities that will cause them problems in adult hood like crooked spines. I check them over every day and try to do it as soon as i notice it. Usually i use clove oil for this. Its definitely the worst part but any small problems will grow with the fish and get bigger for waterchanges as many water changes as you can do is what Id go for, if you can do every day, or even twice a day I find that gets the best results
  2. Aw im sorry you had to rehome her! Im glad this one is working out better
  3. She's gorgeous! Is that 3 cats? I remember Asia and another one I don't remember the name of from instagram
  4. I've had fish with that sort of scale damage when they've got trapped under something or the time one fish got stuck inside the pump casing. But that also came with fin damage so it's really bizarre to me
  5. By the photo there doesnt seem to be any damage to fins? Is that right? Were the white patches fuzzy at all?
  6. To me it looks like it has been injured by something, there looks to be a lot of scales missing. Is there anything that it could have got stuck in or any predators in the area? My other though was some sort of fungal thing @koko, what do you think?
  7. I QT snails for a week or so to try to make sure all the old water is out their shell. Only other fish Id keep with goldies are BN, Ive tries others before and they eithee got eaten or harrassed the goldies. Goldies really do better in a species only tank.
  8. It sucks! I never had them jump before. Was weird that I lost so many at once and thats the only time its happened In better news, last week I got a new addition, His name is Jasper (I swear I'm not copying you Emilee LOL, I already had a Molly named Jasper so i was desperately trying to think of a different name for this boy but NOTHING stuck and when I went to talk about him I always went to go say "Jasper' so, I decided it was meant to be!) Here he is
  9. So just when I say that BN are doing well....Today I found 6 of them OUTSIDE the tank, all dried up and very dead I don't know how they got out the tank, it doesnt have lids (they broke) but I didn't think the water level was high enough for them to be able to get themselves out
  10. Maybe! Im hoping so, do you haveany food suggestions? Ive been doing first bites and frozen daphnia
  11. They are doing well! I need to sell them,getting too big and too many. The goldie fry is doing ok but not awesome. I've been struggling a bit and he hasnt got the attention he needed to really grow well so he is still extremely small The Kitchen looks great Taryl!
  12. Hi, to me it looks like a tumor. Unfortunatly there isn't a lot to do about them, they can be removed if it starts bothering the fish if you choose to go down that route
  13. Ive never used tetra aquasafe but according to the online calculator i found 37.5mls is needed for a 20gallon tank. Four teaspoons is only about 20mls. I think yyou may have not used enough to make the water safe. Otherwise did you make sure the temperature matched? Apart from that restricting food and keeping fish in a smaller tank to keep fish small isnt at all heathy for them. You do a good amount of Water changes but the 1 inch per gallon rule is really outdated and Ive never found it to really be effective.
  14. Thanks guys it really sucks but i know he had a good long life and now there is no more pain
  15. Yesterday we had to make the horrible decision to let our dog, Charlie, go. He was 16 years old and jt was clearly catching up with him, his quality of life had declined drastically. I know we made the right choice but Im still devastated and full of "what ifs" had him over half my life, since I was 14:(

  17. Don't have pics of her parents. We got her from a friend who decided to rehome her and was probably a good thing because she didn't get the best of care. Our friend got her at less than 6 weeks old, no vet work. She never took her to the vet either. I unfortunately think she may have originated from a puppy mill
  18. My new family member. 8 month old Pomeranian cross Maltese. Named Skylar
