  1. how do you manage nitrate in the tank Ashlee18? I have 6 of 4.5" ranchu in a 150 gallon tank with 2 fluval 306, and alot of plant, but the nitrate still 20-40. I feed them twice a day. Comparing to the number of goldfishes you have in ur 180, I do have a nitrate problem for sure. always a fan of ur tank btw
  2. Everything kinda under control since I cleaned up my 2 fluvals....maybe it is right like dnalex....I found alot fresh waste and poop inside the fluval...only 1 or 2 now and then, very small so i dont think i can take a closer vid.......the biggest is just hair like...not as fat as the one in sakura's video.
  3. dnalex, thx alot for ur help man...I just clean up my 2 beloved fluval 360....A jungle of parasites in there....I dont know if they live there or they got stuck there...If one of my big goldfish ever been a factory of these parasites, i cant imagine how much more will come up......I got 2 dann final exams tomorrow...and I cant leave the fish tank......grrr, I cant not separate each goldfish out to know where the parasites come from....im super scared but my goldfishes dont give a *************** about this matter.
  4. I removed most of them and 1 hour later i see many other big ones....So i guess it comes from my gold fish....I actually watch these parasites but dont see them ever catch on a goldfish...they just hang on glass or plants......everything removed out, only fish and water now..... hmmm, these parasites must have seen by many hobbyists....or I discover a new species
  5. omg Moucho...u give me much hopeeeee......i just hope it is harmless.......but it look so dann nasty....
  6. I have nothing to take a pic now so maybe i will do it later... i removed all the plant and most of the parasite out, but after 1 hours more appear ==> from one of my goldfish'

  8. uhm, I guess I should summarize my topic: Does anyone know what kind of parasite it is in the video? thx for all the information.
  9. well, Im trying to find out what is this kind of parasite because I've been looking over the internet...I dont like using prazi for whatever kind of parasite I have.... 5 ml per 20 gallon with no carbon filtration, only airpump for 3 days, then I change 100% water, take 1 day break, then apply again for 3 days. update: I watch the worm for 30 mins and see that they just pass by the goldfish without intention to touch or attach yo the goldfish. I removed all the plants out so there is only fish in water now...hopefully that the soil i got from my garden for those potted plants cause these.....

  11. I'm sorry for the CAP title, but this is so urgent and im in hell now.....my tank full of parasite...I have no clue about these cuz never seen them before...I cant not tell if these come from my goldfishes or from the garden soil I used for the potted plant.....Just saw 2 last night and now like 30 of them in there...small one is white while the mature one is yellowish..... http://s206.photobucket.com/user/longmeo60/media/IMG_4689_zps751cc454.mp4.html the water parameter is perfect 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and 0 nitrate.
  12. I dont get how the shipping cost is too much, maybe it includes that 2 month quarantine ...I prefer goldfishnet.com cuz Tommy is very flexible and he does 2 day shipping for 35, each additional $10 .....Save on shipping for the next fish I guess

I will have to go back to my country for 1 month....I have 4 of 5" goldfishes( 1 ryukin, 1 oranda, 2 ranchu) in a 80 gallon with 2 fluval 306 (75 gallon each filter)....My dad will feed them for me when I am away....So I want to know: 1/ My dad will not change the water....My tank's water is 0 ammonia 0 nitrite 10 Nitrate....Will my fishes live well in this 1 month with this filtration? 2/ How many time they should be fed a day? I usually do 4 times a day..... Oh my god......I dont know why I just worried for the goldfishes, not my girl friend haha..... thx for all the input.
  22. Thx guys for all the answers....I am talking about the total length (body + tail)... I think my 5" oranda and 6" Ryukin will grow larger cuz I see some 7" on goldfishnet.com. The reason bought 2 of the Fluval 306 in hope I can have more large goldfishes But oh well, I think I will stick with 4 of them max.....
