  1. Mine goes on the plants and helps aid in weed growth
  2. I'd encourage you to start a diagnosis thread if you are concerned Spots on the tail could be bacterial, flukes, or even just the way the fin is formed (if there are small bumps/ridges in the fin). Cottony/fuzzy looking spots would be something you'd want investigate further. If you start a thread, post some pics of the spots Ok! I'll try to get some pictures in a couple of days. I hope it isn't anything major but I've never used prazi or anything on her... I've had her for 6 months and it has been there that long.. sometimes it raises up and sometimes it seems to go away..
  3. I got my first goldfish was when I was around 7, I got two, they were comets (Goldie and Spot), and I kept them for a day in a bowl and they died. Then I got a betta and it lived for 4 years in a bowl and then I got four more goldfish when the betta died and kept them in one bowl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Big Red, Princess, Mr. FIshy, Prince) . All of them comets and all in one tiny bowl. Two died the second year and I got two more (Bubbles and Jaws) and another fish bowl (so there were two goldfish per bowl) and I accidentally put hot water in one bowl and killed them both and then one of my others died so I was left with one goldfish (Big Red). That is when I finally found out about their tank requirements. I'm not even gonna lie, I had a goldfish in a bowl up until last year when I set up my first aquarium and tried to put him in and it shocked him and he died . He was almost 4 years old. I think that I may have the worst fish keeping story out there and I feel like I just wrote a novel on my fish keeping experience, sorry about that. Anyway, the first fish that really got me into CORRECT fish keeping was Big Red. And I can gladly say that I have one goldfish in a 30 gallon aquarium right now. No more overstocking
  4. My fish has had one of those on her tail for a long time!! I thought maybe it was just part of her, I'm super curious to hear what it actually is so I can fix it.
  5. I want a white veil tail lionhead eventually, I saw a picture and the goldfish looked so sophisticated and pretty
  6. I definitely do not know what to do either but babies are so exiting!!!! :3 Keep us updated!!
  7. YAY! I have been waiting for pics with your new camera! I love love loveeeeee your pearlscale
  8. I have also been trying to decide if I want to add sand to my 29! I'm really loving the ease of vacuuming a bare bottom aquarium however I love black tms, I think it makes the goldfish colors really pop. Thanks for the post so know I can consider the pros and cons
  9. They are so precious! I enjoy seeing your updates! Can I ask, what camera do you use? I'm currently trying to find one that takes great pics of fish and yours does a fabulous job!
  10. They are so beautiful! I still want pearlscales
  11. I got my Ryukin from petco! They are the cutest little things :3
  12. Woah!!! Those were some big fishies! I think one of those would fill my aquarium!
  13. Should I leave the top off? Would that help cool it as well?
  14. Ok, I just put one in my tank and I'll feed them as normal. I'm not to sure because it's above 82 (which is the highest my thermometer goes)
  15. Ok! Thank you so much for the quick reply. I'll make sure not to add anything else frozen to my aquarium anymore.. It's only temporary, the air conditioner should be up and running in a couple more days, Also, should I feed her like normal? Or less/more?
  16. So, yesterday my air conditioning system broke! It's so hot in the house and I've tried everything to cool off my aquarium. I've frozen bottles and put them in my aquarium, but they melt so quick. I have even tried fans and the temp. on my thermometer is over 80. Will Nibbles be ok for a couple more days? The water is evaporating like crazy as well. Any suggestions?
  17. Congrats!! I cannot wait to see some pics!
  18. I can't wait for some pictures! And that Jeana was so nice of you!!
  19. I actually hope mine live that long so that I can be a old woman with my old fish It amazes me that they can live so long!
