  1. Thank you for the advice! I don't have any water parameters.
  2. My family and I are going down south for a vacation in less than a week and my neighbor is feeding my Goldfish. The tank will not be able to be cleaned for around two weeks. How often would you advise me to feed my goldfish? 20 gallon tank, one Black Moor. Thank you.
  3. Hello I went to the grocery store today and got some gelatin for some Gel Food. Could you help me a little on how to prepare it and what to put in? Also, is this the right brand to get? Just making sure. Here's some things I have in my veggie drawer. 1. Peas. 2.Spinach 3.Broccoli 4.Green Squash (Is this okay? I hear you can feed Zucchini to Goldfish)
  4. I had a problem with this when I first started out with Goldfish (Back then when I knew NOTHING) I once had a small Black Moor (S/He once lived with Tuyet who is still alive and swimming today) and one day she was missing. I checked everywhere, but then I unplugged my filter and s/he came floating out of the tube of the fliter, absolutely shredded It wasn't pretty at all, but not as disgusting when my Pleco rotted in one of those ornaments. I had no idea my Pleco was dead, until the water change when I saw what was left of him I haven't had problems with violent filter killers anymore, thankfully.
  5. Fishy, fishy, fishy... I want to dig up my parent's backyard and turn it into a Goldfish zoo now!
  6. I'll have to look somewhere to buy food locally
  7. Tuyet (My Black Moor) : "What's on the menu today? Me: "Chopped up peas." Tuyet: "Again..?" That would have been our conversation between me and Tuyet today. So, I cleared up my overcrowding problem lately, but I know I need to feed my Black Moor some different food. Before I knew better, I always fed all my Goldfish flakes every. single. day. If that wasn't bad enough, I never knew to soak them. Either I had Goldfish with stomachs made of steel, or I was extremely lucky. They never had any diseases, not even swim bladder. All I have right now is a can of flake food (That I haven't touched in a long while since I knew it could give Goldfish swim bladder...) a can of floating pellets, and frozen peas. I'm not sure Tuyet likes Spinach very much. So, what kind of food would you suggest to feed to a hungry Black Moor?
  8. I measured and my biggest was about six inches! I'm surprised, since they never had lots of room to grow!
  9. I'm not sure. If you mean the water, it might have evaporated over time. They were cleaning it that day, I suppose they would put more water in it.
  10. Donating all four of my lovely Commons to my local Chinese Buffet pond in one week. I sure didn't see that one coming. The same woman at the checkout didn't mind getting a late donation though. This time I asked if I could take pictures. She graciouly allowed me to do so. I am happy to have just one Goldfish tank in my room. The flow of the water is sometimes relaxing, but the loud humming from my 10 gallon gets irritating. I retired the 10 gallon to the basement and put my Black Moor in her new 20 gallon. She seems very happy and I found a new name for her. I also gave my Black Moor a name. Her name is Tuyet, which ironically means "snow white" in Vietnamese. That's alright though, I like the way it sounds.(Too-yet I think...) Besides, my name means "Graceful" and let's just say it doesn't really fit me. Some of you wanted some pictures and I have some here. Enjoy... Here's some pictures of my Commons that I donated. Their new home. (Don't mind how 'dirty' it might look. They were cleaning it that day) This is usually where the fish like to hide most of the time. Tuyet in her new home!
  11. That's where I'm bringing her. I think I'll say when I get there "Have room for one more?" LOL! It'll give me an opportunity to take pictures too. Maybe I'll get my bucket back...just kidding.
