  • How many Goldfish
    1 black moor, 3 bettas
  1. Okay, thanks! I guess I just got some numbers confused, so I'll get everything back in line before he gets put back in.
  2. Hi, I literally JUST lost a goldfish today, and I don't think I could handle that happening again! My black moor, Opis (from a comedy show..don't judge , was recently moved into a larger tank and is now acting very strange. Ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites are all at zero. Same thing from the tap. The ph in this tank is around 6.6. This afternoon I introduced him to the tank. He has lost his black coloring (now copper), and is hiding behind the filter! When I tried to feed him, he went for it, then gave up. I'm really really scared he'll die--I know that sounds ridiculous, but I'm worried for him. I'm putting him back in his old tank to see if that helps out.
  3. I'm so sad; thanks. I wish I could have helped it.
  4. I'm sorry to say that when I woke up this morning to check on the fish, he had passed away. RIP little guy. If anybody has any idea what was going on, I would really like to know. I'll be burying him in the garden, I guess.
  5. The water params are fine..I keep them at zero by doing frequent changes. You have really cute goldies!
  6. Okay, I will be running to petsmart to pick up some supplies for my other fish. I'll check this as soon as I get back! Hopefully someone will know what to do...
  7. The salt WAS around .1 %, but I have brought it back down to zero for now, to give him a break. Thanks so much for helping me out!
  8. Yeah, I hope so to! Personally, I think having a fish is just like owning any other animal (this house is like a zoo!).
  9. So instead of the five gal bucket, I just realized I've got a unused one gallon tank, so I'm gonna use that.
  10. The video: Thanks. I hope it gets better, but I've got a bad feeling about this.
  11. Thanks. I do 25 percent water changes everyday, because I'm afraid anything larger will shock him. I tried to feed him medi-gold pellets for the first few days, but he wouldn't touch them...so I soaked some aqueon goldfish flakes and have been feeding him those. On his third day, I fed him a pea. He has been eating, but he's so tiny I have to grind everything up and it still takes him awhile. I can get a video of him in the tupperware, I think. I'll move him into a five gallon bucket as soon as the air stone arrives. I'll post a video momentarily. Oh, and yesterday was his last day of prazi and salt (really low dosage of this one).
  12. Unfortunately, over the past couple of hours, the little guy's health has gone down hill. I had to move him out of the tank and into a tupperware because he was having problems getting to the food. He mostly just lays on the bottom. His stomach seems to be a dark color. What the heck could that be? He made it through one round of prazi. My family doesn't understand why I'm so upset about the fish-- "They're fish, not dogs" or, "I don't want you to get upset over a fish; it's just a fish". Even though my dad agrees with treating it, he is insisting I can't get upset. He's out buying an air stone for it now. Is there anything I can do? I feel horrible that he's suffering. Please don't recommend putting him to sleep, as I've yet to encounter a situation that I feel ending a life is appropriate. One last thing. Do you think me being around stresses him out? Should I avoid the room and give him peace, or monitor him?
  13. Yes, I am using salt. And I'm glad to hear that...I'm so worried about the little guy!
  14. Yeah--that's actually what I meant when I said he was in the process. I'm using prazi.
