  • How many Goldfish
  1. Size of the tank/number of fish? Like everyone else said, if you had a good weekly routine that was working keep at it. You can also tell by the smell/clarity of the water if you know how it looks/smells right after a water change and the day after. If you know you are going to be feeding heavily for some growth, regardless of test kit readings a change is always in order the following day. Sometimes I change my water every day/other day, sometimes it's twice/three times a week. All depends on how I'm feeding and how the water is looking.
  2. He's about 3 inches not including tail. Probably about the same around I haven't measured or weighed him in a little bit. In the second video he's in my hand and takes up the center of my palm. I wear size large gloves if that gives you an idea. They've definitely grown a lot quicker now that they are in the 80. I can feed more/more frequently without having to change the water five minutes later. Forgot to link the second video over the weekend. So I'll get that done tonight.
  3. I have the video up on the videos section. There's a full tank video as well, but I haven't been able to link it from work. Plenty more to see there.
  4. Second video is up. I can't link it from work though. I'll embed it in a post later. I grabbed the biggest ones for size comparisons in my hands. Let me know what you guys think.
  5. Thank you all. Video will be up shortly. Mr.B they are golden white cloud minnows.
  6. Took a quick video of the 80g during a water change. I'll have a better one up tonight. 6 month update after moving them in to the 80g from a 20 long.
  7. Just a quick pic until I get the video up. It was during a water change so the waters a bit cloudy.
  8. Very nice coloration, doesn't look like a crowned though. Could you possibly get a good pic top down?
  9. I'll have to see if I can find the battery for my camera later for some good pics when I get home from work. Most people say it's either love/hate with pearl scales. I say after a few days watching them swimming(wriggling) around there is no way to still be on that hate side of the fence. Maybe on the extreme body types, but there's no way to hate a good pearl scale.
  10. This is definitely nice. Makes me question keeping it bare bottom, but I don't think I can ever have a substrate with goldies. It's too easy without one.
  11. Were you able to get any decent shots of it after everything settled?
  12. Not really sure where to put this, so I figured this was a good spot. If anyone needs to add another tank, or finally get that upgrade, Central and North Jersey Petcos have the $1 a gallon sale going on right now till 9/21, I'm not sure about down south though. May have pick myself up some 20 longs for new shrimp and a 40b just because.
  13. Head to Absolutely Fish( http://www.absolutelyfish.com )in Clifton on 46. Their plants have never had any snails in all the times I've bought from them. Most plants they have are for the hi-tech planted tank though, and your goldfish would love to eat them all. Rt 4 Aquarium( http://rt4aquarium.com/exotic-fish.htm )in Elmwood Park has some decent plants as well. Ely's( http://www.elysfish.com ) in Florham Park has a very nice selection of goldfish and plants at times, and will order you whatever you want. I am about to do some trimming in my shrimp tank and have a bunch of water sprite from the goldfish tank I could give you a few floating stems of if you want some plants to start with that are pretty easy to keep with minimal lighting. Any of the stores up there should have banana plants as well, grab 3 or so and just toss them in together. Once they finish melting and adapting you'll be surprised how well they do,
