  1. Sorry, don't mean to bring this back up again, but here's an update: I now have 4 remaining fish, 2 of my 5 past fish, and 2 ECR that are doing healthy as always. I also contacted API about the issue, and after exchanging emails with a rep, he said that although he is not able to bring the dead fish back to life, he can send me a care package. I was asked what I would like, and I told him that their root tabs and liquid fert would be nice. I only expected like a package of root tabs and a bottle of liquid fert. But what would you know? The stuff arrived today, and I was surprised and blown away at how many things were included. Here's the list: 1 freshwater master test kit 3 packages of root tabs 1 bottle of stress zyme, 1 bottle of stress coat, 1 bottle of CO2 Booster 2 bags of Nitra-Zorb and 1 container of goldfish food. Although I won't be using some of these products (the food), I am very appreciative and impressed of their customer service. Although I may have had a bad experience with one of their products, their customer service and care is quite nice.
  2. Yup that's what I'm thinking too. So called 'deals' on used tanks around here are not really deals at all. Guess that's probably what I'll do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Petco sale only goes up to 55. If they includes 75, I would be all over that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I'm looking to upgrade my aquarium to a 75 gallon aquarium, and I think PetSmart has what I'm looking for at a low price. The price they're having it right now is $199, but I'm not sure if that's the best deal, so what's the lowest price you saw those tanks go for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Wow, all of these goldfish names completely went over my head, but the fishies are REALLY cute!!!
  6. I'm not gonna touch on the QT topic, but I think he is more of a lionhead, or lionchu than a full ranchu. But very cute no matter what
  7. My oh my, awesome wen!! Awesome fish, congrat!! Btw fyi, I've had my eyes on that fish since forever, so if you ever find your fish missing in the morning,
  8. If it's on full blast will it be sucking and refilling the tank or just sucking the water? Just sucking the water out since with the faucet tap water, it creates a syphon that sucks out the water.
  9. Yup, lionhead. A very cute, adorable lionhead.
  10. Yes, the python will still work if your tank is below the level of your sink, but the water pressure wont be as strong, and you'll be wasting water trying to pull water up to the sink.? What do you mean wasting water? Do I have to ?keep the tap water running to get water out of my tank?If your tank is below the sink level, then yes you have to keep the tap water running since gravity won't be able to pull the water up to the sink.

  11. Yes, the python will still work if your tank is below the level of your sink, but the water pressure wont be as strong, and you'll be wasting water trying to pull water up to the sink. In this situation, I would suggest using a submersible pond pump that you just hook up and use the tubing of the python to run the water into an outlet. There'll be no water waste, you save money, and may even be faster. When done, you can just hook the python back to the sink and fill the tank up. There's a thread of use of water changers in the poll section, you can check it out.
  12. I feel like in this situation, the only thing to do is to give a smart, witty comeback.
  13. Whew, looks like my fish have reached full recovery since all of them are healthy, eating, swimming, and are back to normal. The only thing now is the tear in the lionhead's tail that needs healing, everything else is good now. Lol, this wasn't the introduction of the new ranchus I was intending to make, but I'm glad that they both are doing 'fin-tastic' now! And again, thanks to everyone for the well wishes and support!
