  1. Was curious about it, that's all. I work at a petshop now and have three customers that swear by it. Like ya'll, I would never do it myself, but simply asked out of curiosity. As far as info, it's by word of mouth.
  2. I've never had much problems with ammonia since I run understocked and keep my water changes pretty consistant, but I have heard that crushed eggshells (from boiled eggs) or simply plopping a boiled egg into the water will help with high ammonia consistant with overstocking. Or at least, if you overstock isn't really, really bad. I haven't tried this myself, wanted to see what everyone else thought.
  3. I was also in agreement with Bronwyn, though it is really rare. I use a combination of HOB's and canisters for my goldfish and have never had a bad smell while they were operating. It's super strange. I don't have many ideas, but I look forward to seeing other more experienced fish keepers have to say. Good luck!
  4. I agree with motherredcap. It sounds like a good solution, especially with the language barrier. I also think Chelsea's usual approach works with most people, but may come across as a bit harsh, especially to an older adult. My opinion is a neutral approach and, if he's willing, some of your boyfriend's help in showing her how to take care of them better and help them live longer. Though what worries me is that there is a tiger barb and a goldfish living in such close space with each other, much less in the same tank. From my experience, tiger barbs can be very aggressive, almost as much as an oscar. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't tiger barbs require a heater?
  5. I'm no mod, but this could be one or two things. Either he's going through a color change, but more than likely it makes me think of ammonia burns. I'm sure DnAlex will be able to help you more. Good luck and I hope this gets better quickly
  6. This is before I knew about over stocking and all of that, so I'd put this at around 2010. I got started with minnows, and yes, that giant comet there is Oshi, who is still around today Some of you may recognize Clause and Rosie. This is my 55 about a month ago. I have since decreased the number of fish down to four, the three comets and Bree (the oranda).
  7. Poor baby.... He does look very ill, but I think he's passing from old age. He had a long life with you
  8. Awwwwww, so cute! What about Willy? If you look at his orange body markings he looks a like a killer whale
  9. Lookin' much better than what it was. He's healed up so well. He might regain sight in that eye, but due to the trauma, he might not. But your fishy friend will very quickly adapt to that limitation You may just get lucky though!
  10. Definately not poisonous, lol. I agree with everyone else that has already posted. I would have had a lot of fish pass if they were. Just remember that if your water quality isn't kept pretty clean and balanced, the moss balls will begin to turn yellow and die. Then you'll have pieces of moss everywhere in your tank, and boy, it sucks to have to clean that up
  11. Awwww And this is exactly why I love Koko's :)
