  1. It sucks! I never had them jump before. Was weird that I lost so many at once and thats the only time its happened :o

     

    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

  2. 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


  3. 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!


  4. 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  You do a good amount of Water changes but the 1 inch per gallon rule is really outdated and Ive never found it to really be effective.


  5. 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:(

  7. 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


  8. It definitely is a tumor, I had a fish vet on FB look at photos of it. Unfortunately he doesnt have any contacts in Adelaide to get advice from.

    But the area its in makes it very hard to surgically remove.

    Right now I think my plan of action is to just keep him comfortable as long as possible and once he can either no longer right himself or cant/wont eat I'll have to euth him :( I think there is much more of the tumor internally than we can see externally.

  10. So when I moved my pleco babies over to their own tank I moved a couple of pieces of driftwood from the main tank over for them. 
    The night previously the goldies had spawned in the main tank, but I wasn't planning on rescuing the eggs. I saw a couple on the wood that I moved over but they didn't look like 'good' eggs. A few days after the wood was in the pleco tank I couldn't see the eggs, though I did see a bad one, I just assumed the had gone bad or the plecos had eaten them.

    Today I found three little freeswimming goldie fry :rofl I wasn't planning on raising any but now that I've seen them I can't just let them be. So raising them up it is. I know my butterfly tele Papi is the mum but there were three boys chasing her that day so I don't know who ended up fathering them
