  1. I had a small fish go through an open filter intake and lost his tail. It grew back, misshapen but how could i possibly complain? I'm not sure where i posted this but i did make a thread documenting his recovery. If it were me I'd keep the fish in QT until you got some good growth happening but i have no real reasoning behind that haha
  2. They are both so cute and have really grown!! Goldfish is such a sweet lookin gal
  3. Thanks! It actually wasn't really a favorite, so that's good? I need a way to say that that isn't awful? No! It wasn't. I will take the water out with bowls from now on, and spot clean with a turkey baster. Thanks! They are! I want to know how they'll turn out!! Dying to see the button eyed ones grown up more
  4. Hi all! Sorry I've fallen off Doing good, the guys are growing! I have 8 i think. Why am i so bad with counting them? Anyway i did just viciously (and accidentally) kill one of them. It was bad. Got sucked up the airline tubing, a matter of seconds, but the pressure of that did a thing, I'll keep the visuals to myself, and I had to put him straight into clove oil. Suffice it to say we are past the tubing. Just wanted it for sucking up poo, then I was going to use the bowl to remove water! ANYWAY wasn't that a fun intro to this post?? Pictures will make it better you say? Okay! This last one is the fish to whom i refer as The Single-Chu.
  5. They seem ok! They looked like they were really taking off, but i dunno now they seem too small! I have about twenty. Some are looking really nice, and the smaller ones at least look like fish from a side view haha. Couple o' pics From a few days ago: From just now, mid-waterchange This one takes after mama with not one rad dorsal fin, but two! I actually do have a few with no dorsals! SOME even have single tails! My coolest and most favorite one died this afternoon. It was the biggest single-chu. I hope one other will make it.
  6. Welcome to kokos! What an awesome fish. I hope you can get this sorted easily.
  7. The bigger the better BUT i have to say, i stick my nose up every time i see a celestial that costs 172847482919% more than my two! [emoji38]2 This auction has been particularly good for that petty feeling
  8. I'll start taking bets now! I have no idea, i just think its only that a few have cropped up/become visible haha. But who knows, it's a good possibility that some will be ranchu/dorsal-less
  9. ^ this!!!! I wants to knnnoooww!!!
  10. Yes! I hope they grow big quickly I can see tiny pec fins on them, and some dorsals too uuhhh I think on all of them It's probably too early to tell but I swear some of them have solid black eyes, I'm kind of hoping there's a bunch of button eyes Thanks! I find myself looking over them more every day
  11. Two of the little stinkers They're growing for sure!
  12. Very nice! I have a matte red eggfish/lionhead/whatever that is mostly orange, but has deep red scales here and there. It's really awesome how his color turned out. [emoji813] Good luck with this cutie
  13. Thanks! The tele is Chappie. He's lost the rest of his black (and thus some of his charm ) but he's a cutiepie. And you mean the white ranchu? That's Plumbean.
  14. They're pretty good! I was away longer than I was supposed to, and they seemed not to eat anything off the plants while I was gone. but they're doing alright I think. Thanks! How silly of me! I have no idea what to expect This is Mama Myrtle: and the males in the tank: we'll see ...... and there's a good chance some inbreeding went on.. I did a round of brine shrimp, and it stunk up my tiny apartment. Beneficial to feed them, sure, buuuuttt... no. Picked up a jar of "instant brine shrimp" and that will do for now.
  15. I did, but I couldn't get it to load on my phone! I'll go back now yes! I forgot how small they are but they have already grown since hatching
  16. i never know how to title these things! Glad you liked it Thanks dawn! I keep seeing pictures of other people's little fish growing and it's definitely getting me excited
  17. Last weekend my fish were at it, and Myrtle laid a decent number of eggs. Life is crazy and I feel like letting things be for a while would be good for the fish buuuuuut let's face it, all it took was for my husband to open his mouth and suggest growing them out, and here we are now. Nothing serious, just wanna see where it goes. I'm going big - well bigger - with the fry tub than i had in the past (with room to add depth) and I'll be feeding brine shrimp this time too. One thing I had to learn for myself with my butterfly teles... cull. It's necessary. Not for imperfections (look at the mom for goodness sake! [emoji813] ) but I will not take the "Oh let's see what happens" approach with bendy spines and whatnot... On that note, I feel like I'm seeing a pretty high number of those with crooked, even curly, bodies. Don't know If that's something I did (there were a number of eggs that might have hatched buried in sand?), something with my fish, something totally normal. Anywho, will try to update as they grow, if all goes well.
  18. Nice to see you back! Looking forward to seeing pictures of your newbies Hope the butterflies are fine... i've done that before
  19. I think I got mine from Webb's Water Gardens. I have the 25g bottle. http://www.webbsonline.com/Category/Aqua-Meds scroll down a little to find the Aqua Prazi
  20. yeaahhh!! Good choices, Justine! They are both (no, all) very cute!
  21. Woah that IS a big celestial!! :o How long have you had it? Was it very small when you got it?
  22. I've seen it enough times on Kokos to know that recurring symptoms like these very rarely end well... I don't want to try and treat him again. I'll do what I can to keep him comfy and clean, but for a few reasons I don't want to try to prolong the inevitable. I'll keep him in his tub for as long as I can. One of those times where I almost hope it happens quickly. But I will know when it's time. Hopefully in this time I can get at least one decent picture of his perfectly squishable cheeks Thank you for your quick response And thanks Aubz for the
  23. Thank you for just saying it (no sarcasm if somehow if came off that way)... i will reread and then actually respond.
