  1. Beautiful! Do your goldfish eat/nibble and detroy the moss ball? I have a moss ball that I keep in a small glass container but want to move it to my tank
  2. That's a good idea Helen! Will try this today And thank you everyone for your comments! I seriously would not have been able to do it without all your help~
  3. Here is his damaged side, looks all normal - Close up - And this one's just for fun - He thinks I'm giving him food so he's all excited Do you know how to evenly feed both your fish if the dominant one (Frederik) steals quite a bit of Alfred's? Alfred's a little slow to realise where the food is. I JUST added sinking variety to their diet so I guess he has yet to get used to it.
  4. I'll post some photos later today Looking a lot better! The pupil hasn't changed much so this is good
  5. Beautiful! And also a nice spot for the tank!
  6. Thank you Jmetz! I'm going to the mall tomorrow to buy the lionhead food. So It means I must have been under feeding my goldfish! I will now feed them twice a day and try to get closer to the 1% rule. Thank you so much!
  7. Thank you Mickey Yes it looks like a good food, so I want to transfer to that when I'm half way done with the Wheat Germ Pack. Will keep that to switch the food around a bit to give them variety. Plus so much easier to just have the sinking variety!
  8. if it does end up looking like a white ball I think that would actually be kind of cool. just in time for halloween! He doesn't need white contacts like I do haha and yes it's nice to see everything going back to normal and colour returning around the eyes!
  9. I have 2 Ryukins that eat Hikari Wheat Germ. It's a floating type so I have to soak them and then press them out. But pressing them out causes the water to go dirty because of all the small bits that fall off. And so I want to move to the Lionhead because it's a sinking variety. Is it ok to feed them Lionhead food? It will not cause their heads to grow big will it? Because the description says "Promotes head growth" They only sell this ($10) and the Wheat Germ ($5) especially for goldfish at the pet store. Also, they weigh 40g and 42g. So how much should I feed them? About 0.4 grams? That would be about 30-40 pellets each. Usually I just give them 15 pellets each because they begin eating very slow after the 12th but according to the 1% rule I'm under feeding them? Soaking the fish food makes them more heavy. So should I soak 70-80 pellets and feed them over a period of 30 minutes or what should I do?
  10. You can see better now that the inside is turning white. Will it stop when the whole pupil is white? Will the eye fall out?
  11. I can't really photograph that close with the camera, but looking at the eye, it looks like the pupil is turning more and more white. Like a tunnel. Empty in the middle and white on the sides. I guess this might mean he's officially going blind. I'll take photos when it becomes quite significant
  12. Eating fine, yes Though some trouble because Frederik steals quite a bit of his food haha I try to give them the same amount of food because they weigh kind of the same (40g/42g) Soon he'll learn so no worries
  13. Hi Helen, these photos are without flash. I never photograph fish with flash. They looks like I've taken them with flash though If you were here in person, his eye really looks like a camera lens. Like, natural light reflects off of his eye to give it that effect.
  14. Update on eye: His eye looks hollow. Like the lens of a camera if you looked at a DSLR one. I've now moved him back with Frederik because I think it's ok now to do so. He's still blind in the eye. I think for good? He'll learn to cope so this will be ok
  15. Will post some photos later today It's looking a lot better! But his eye seems to be hollow. Like it's missing the pupil. Still blind. But doing fine
  16. I think you should set it up now with some of the aquarium water. Usually when I buy guppies from the market, they have quite large gravity spots already (all females sold like that) and the next day after I put them in the pond, they give birth. I think by transferring the guppy to the fry tank for the night, with some plants, will induce this same thing. This is just from experience. You don't need to take my suggestions because I'm not an expert on guppies.
  17. Today I've noticed the injured eye is now moving! Also more colour has gone back into the eye. Some blood left, and still some pink around the eye socket. And still blind. Still lots of healing to do
  18. Finally something I can find in my LFS! haha I hope the pink stuff doesn't become more angry. Is it ok to still do a fast day or should he be fed everyday to help promote healing if this does help?
  19. This yellow powder is available in my LFS I've seen it when going through my LFS's medicine section.
  20. Better today! Though I’m noticing some pink skin around the bottom of the eye socket
  21. It's installed inside all tanks by this company. I don't think a HOB filter would work with this. There's a hood to this tank and I don't think it's easy to cut through the hood to allow for a HOB.
  22. Thanks guys ^^ I'm staying positive, and keeping a close eye
