  2. My oranda has a big hole in its wen. It looks infected and has white stuff in it and it's a purple-ish red color I side. The hole is pretty big. I put him in a 10 gallon uncycled tank with a AQ 70. The thing is it's not cycled...Somehow in my Main tank the cycled was crashed and all my fishes are getting 70% WCs every 2 days. The meds I have are the API yellow powder stuff and API aquarium salt. Another thing that's bad is that my tap water has like .50-1.0 ammonia in it. Help!
  3. As some of you might know I have a oranda named ton. He's hasn't been doing too well.... 2 weeks Ago ton got into an accident over night and he injured his wen REALLY bad. On the side there's a whole in his wen about half and inch long. It's deep too. I thought it would heal over time...but now it's just looking worse and worse everyday. I can't provide a picture because idk how to post pictures. The part of his wen that is injured doesn't look like it's bleeding but it's like a dark red color. He doesn't seem to be acting abnormal. His poop is big and solid and he eats a lot. I would appreciate it if you guys could Help me! And btw I don't have a qt tank!!!
  4. I want to enter but I don't know how to post a picture of my tank
  5. I also suggest you look for a fish on Goldfishnet.com and dandyorandas.com for your 3rd and final fish. Goldfishnet.com is considerably "cheaper" for the quality of their fish.
  6. Where are you ordering the calico ranchu from? if you don't mind me asking. And I think you should get another ranchu. I think 2 ranchus and 1 oranda would look nice in a 55 maybe a Ryukin if you come across a nice one.
  7. Ahah I'm back! I never really left but i Just been roaming the forums and stuff so yeah when's the next DPGS?
  8. Wooooowwowoow that calico Ryukin is beautiful!!!! I want I want!! Where did you get him?
  9. As the title states I'm wondering what websites you guys use to buy your Goldies! I need some websites to skim through!
  10. Haha it's ok!^ and yeah they both look VERY healthy!
  11. Oh and has anyone used sunsun canister filters?
  12. What's your favorite brand of things to buy from? I personally like aquaclear and aquatop products. I think they are both pretty high quality and pretty durable. I know eheim and fluval are good too but I haven't used those brands yet do to it being kind if costly for their products. So what's your favorite brand?
  13. Are the aquatop canister filters good? If I get it I'm just going to use it for bio media. And it has a uv sterilizer which is a plus because my tank is next to a window with Alot of sunlight that shines through. And how do I get rid of the algae on the glass. The uv sterilizer only clears the water but does nothing to the algae on the glass. Anyway, is the aquatop canister filter good? Does anyone use it?
  14. thanks tithra. sorry I've been annoying about it
  15. Oh sorry is there anyway I can delete this post?
  17. Yeah guys I think the dollar per gallon sale is on the 23rd because I just watched tithra's video and it was made on June 25th and the video was about a dollar per gallon sale.
  18. When are you making the video tithra!
  19. I just called them and they said they will be having a sale on tanks on the 23rd but they are not sure it will be the dollar per gallon sale. I live in San Francisco btw.
  20. Well actually I think I could wait that long
