  1. If you can some how scrape together the cash I would definitely purchase that fish from Raingarden. A couple of months ago I ordered a Japanese Tvr from them and could not be any happier. Steve the owner is great to deal with and had great answers for all of my very long questions. This is my beloved TVR 27/?action=view&current=20130305_220126_zpse655a67e.jpg
  2. You only want one now but a few months down the line you might get the goldfish bug. Trus t me it's extremely hard to just stop at one.
  3. Thanks for all of the great advice. I love the idea of making my own filter but as of right now I'm just too busy with school and my 75 gallon goldie tank.
  4. Your tank is absolutely beautiful. It must have taken you ages to build it.
  5. I have a 90 gallon pond and a Danner 9.5 pump. I'm currently using a small piece of 3/4 inch vinyl tubing that I had laying around. I'm gonna stick to the 3/4 do to the fact that my filter can't handle the pumps max flow rate of 950 gph (totally unbeknownst to me when I ordered the filter). And no I have not considered PVC pipe tubing. Is that what you would recommend?
  6. I just finished the installation of my first pond during Spring break. My question: What is the best tubing for my pump, filter, and waterfall? I have spent hours searching the Internet with no luck. It seems like every hose has a big problem of its own. Money is not really an issue if it is going to last me a long time.
  7. Well I then it's decided. I will leave my tank bare bottom and look for some hardy plants to spruce it up. Thank yall for all of the great responses.
  8. Taco is absolutely stunning. I wish I could get a hold of a adult black oranda.
  9. Ya i was thinking about building a pond this summer but I wouldn't dare risk loosing one of my beloved fancies. We have toooo many cats in my neighborhood and lots of other stuff that would make a meal out of my goldfish in hurry. And I thought it wasn't good to keep fancies in water below 55??
  10. I just remembered that I have a 25 gallon tank sitting in the corner of my room. I could use that for 1 fish when the time comes to relocate. Now I'm down to 5. Is that to many. I could always donate my least favorite. How would you recommend my water changes be done when my tank is fully stocked?
  11. Wow that's totally not what i wanted to hear. So I couldn't go with 5??? Only getting rid of 1 would be better than 2, but if I have to i will.
  12. I love the low setting of the tank!!! And good luck with the calico ryukin.
  13. Ok that sounds great. Thank yall for all of the info.
  14. Well I have had him for seven months and according to Pet Smarts supplier he was about 4 months old when I purchased him. He'll never be as big as (Bruce) but I will be extremely thrilled if he passes the 11 inch mark.
  15. Thank yall for all of the great responses. I guess the long and short of it is that I am very attached to all of my goldfish and would like to be able to keep them all but not at the cost of their health. I am willing to step up my filtration and my water changes if need be. Can I run the tank permanently and my fish live happy and healthy lives? If not how many do I need to donate?
  16. I currently have 6 goldfish and 10 community fish in a 75 gallon aquarium. In 2 weeks though the community fish will be gone. I have always read on other forums and websites that say you need 20 gallons for the first fish and 10-15 additional gallons for every other one you intend to keep. I have a turn over rate of over 18x per hour and I preform 50 percent water changes on a weekly basis. From what I have read on here most people tend to think that each fish should have 20 gallons. I want what is best for my fish. So is the traditional rule right or wrong? http://s1308.photobucket.com/albums/s601/Fishrock27/?action=view&current=20130305_212402_zps872e19ec.jpgh
  17. If that's correct the my 11 month old 7.5 inch oranda is gonna grow up to be a monster!!!
  18. I have a sunsun and I absolutely love it. I've had mine for over 2 years and have had absolutely no problems. Plus there cheap!! I only paid $98 for a filter that has an advertised flow rate of 520 gph!!!
  19. She is 8.5 inches. I believe she's just about done growing. My other oranda is 7.5 inches and he's not even a year old.
  20. Have you checked the water parameters? If for some reason your tank had a large ammonia or nitrate spike that could be causing some of your problems.
  21. I'm glad that someone was able to adopt them They are beautiful fish!!
  22. I meant to say thanks for the idea. I really love / hate spell check!!
  23. Thank you for your concern Sakura. I will be selling the 6 gold barbs with 40 gallon tank next Sunday and will soon be giving my 4 giant danios to one of my friends. As for the rocks I never really planned on putting more in there I was just joking because I bought way too many of them. I know it will be a little overstocked but hopefully with a turn over rate of 18x per hour and 50% weekly water changes I should be able to keep them all for many many years to come!! Right now my ammonia=0 and my nitrates=below 5 so I should be fine with my current bio load until I can re home some of them.
