  1. That fish is beautiful. I love the coloring. congratulations
  2. They looks amazing! I love the dorsal fin, the patterns. Congrats
  3. Great pictures. I love ranchus, the way they swim is the best.
  4. I've been looking at a lot of the things in there trying to see if there's any other places the fish can get stuck. I think i've gotten rid of all (if not most) of them. Thanks to everyone who is helping out. it means a lot.
  5. I completely removed where they got stuck (bottom picture). I'll go out and pick up some pickling salt as soon as i can, thank you. Anything else i should do?
  6. I have a 10 gallon tank already set up. i'll add the bubbler right now. i have melafix and that's it. i don't mind going to a pet store to pick anything up anyone could suggest though. that's what the tests said, they could of been off though. i know the nitrates are extremely high out here but i don't think they are that high.

  8. I'm not entirely sure where i should post this, i hope this is the right place. Here it goes, About a week ago my calico fantail (Gibblet) went missing. i looked everywhere and i couldn't find him. about two days later my black moore went missing. i figured there was a hole in the hood and a cat might've grabbed them. about 5 minutes ago i noticed in a tower bubbler i had that there was something that sort of looked like a fin going in and out. i moved the bubbler and the Calico and Moore came out of it. the moore just started swimming around like nothing had happened, but the fan tail is beat to hell. his fins are torn and his skin is a beat up too. i have no clue what to do. Please help. Sincerely, Chinua.
  9. I'm really sorry to hear about that :{
  10. That's what i think, yeah. he was in the tank with the other Lionheads, but so was a Shubunkin. Ok that's what I thought did not know walmart had them lol Very nice fish cant wait to see it grow up Do you know the gender? I'm thinking female. But i've not had the best track record with that lol I don't really know, i think it's too early to tell. I'll say it's a guy, that way one of us will be right.
  11. No, he would be in tanks with other fish. I'll look into some treatments, Thank you for noticing! ok, i would begin with some PraziPro from www.tastyworms.com or some prazi powder www.goldfishconnection.com but please check first if goldfish connection will ship to New Mexico.. i'm not from US and don't know where that is good luck Thank you very much for the links. I'll pick some up as soon as i can.
