  1. Any other recommendations fellow aussies?
  2. That's Kirky got Frenchy from right? I've sent them a message. Thanks Amanda Yup it is She got Ruby from them too, and that's also where I got my Luka Ah cool, did they ship Luka to you?

  4. Has anyone in Aus found any good online sites for fish? I'm looking specifically for bubble eyes but they're proving very elusive. Failing online stores does anyone know any aquariums that can ship to a home address, or has anyone seen any bubble eyes whilst out and about in the Brisbane area? Thanks
  5. It's hornwort, the floating plant, it just gets caught on my anubias and end up looking like that, I think it's pretty cool
  6. Quite DIY but its effective, I've seen people do this with white filter pads too, the wool like ones
  7. Maybe the blood worms spoiled whilst you were out that extra hour? Just a thought but them just eating way too much sounds about right. if you even tried making gel food you could add the freeze dried worms and blend them up
  8. Thanks, I'm enjoying keeping fish on small scale again, so much less hassle. I downsized because I'll be moving back to the UK within the next year or so. I re-homed my telescopes and Ryukin with Kai so I'm glad they've got themselves a good home
  9. So, I orginally had my new bubble eye that I have christened Wilbur in a storage container pond outside BUT I found there was a big temp fluctuation going on, I would have had to of upgraded within a few months anyhow as well. So I had an empty 23 gallon tank sitting in my bedroom that I have set up for Wilbur with a cycled canister filter. He's doing pretty great in there so far, for my first time owning a bubble eye I'm really beginning to like this little one. His new pad: I had a incident where his right bubble deflated slightly, I'm happy to report its healed completely and even caught up in size (nearly) with his left bubble
  10. Yeh it was a super pleasant surprise,....maybe it was like a slow puncture on a bike tyre...it just deflated slightly bu healed quick enough that it didn't go totally flat
  11. That is a shame, sorry to hear about your fish, you did well by it though
  12. So it's this little guys first weigh in today, I think a quarter of those 6 grams might be bubble weight Speaking of bubbles, his right bubble has seemed to of bounced back which I'm really grateful for. I've named him/her Wilbur.
  13. It could be multiple things, but it will be hard for people to give you an answer without more information. How big is the tank? Was it cycled? what did you feed the fish? Which water additives did you use? Were they quarantined etc There's a disease diagnosis section on this forum with a form to fill out to give people more experienced than myself the information they need to help you, I'd make a post there if I were you If you can attach a photo of the affected fish to the post it will also be a plus. Here's the link http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/forum/10-disease-diagnosis-treatments-microscope-videos/
  14. You kept this a secret from us on facebook Amanda or maybe I just didn't pay attention. How are the fry going?
  15. I hope things improve for your Oranda, you're obviously working really hard to make the best out of the situation you were put in by the pet store employee. Good luck
  16. The gravel is out! You can see the right bubble is a little wrinkled and withered looking, it was smaller anyway. Not catastrophic but I would of liked to have avoided it, lesson learned the hard way :| A little perspective on it's size
  17. You were right, I also was a bit worried but thought I could get away with it...This morning one of the little fishes bubbles is a little deflated, it's obviously the rocks... I'm going to take them out today, I'm pretty gutted because I know it's unlike the bubble will regain its former shape when healed I shouldn't have risked it, I knew better.
  18. It's sub tropical here so its pretty consistently warm throughout a 24 hour period, obviously is cooler at night but it's not a huge drop. I'm going to keep an eye on the temps though and if i feel it's getting out of hand I'll move the tub inside. I wanted my fish to get some sunlight, to help improve its colour and to try and get some green water going on. Obviously if the water isn't habitable for the little fish I'll have to make arrangements. The pond got sunlight today from 1pm until 5pm I don't think that's too excessive but like I'll said i'll keep checking

  20. Hello everyone, I haven't been active on here for quite a few months so I'm not sure if anyone will even remember me I have downsized my goldfish keeping due to a move over seas within the next year or so. Right now I have a little storage container pond outside and I've just added a tiny bubble eye to it. It's the only fish in there and I will not be adding anymore. I'll get a bigger container when he/she has grown out a little. My goal is to focus on growth with this fish and grooming it, with my fish in the past it's just been a case of grabbing what was pretty to me and keeping them alive, this time I want to focus on growth and condition (Just a note, the pond only gets sun like this for a couple of hours a day as the sun sets, I'm not trying to poach the fish in there )
  21. Yeh, I'm hoping they keep there colours but you never know, they're so small as well they have plenty of growing to do and plenty of colours to lose. We'll have to wait and see
  22. Hi everyone, long time no post on my behalf. Sorry about that. So I finished work today and decided to stop in at a pet shop I like on a whim, I just had a feeling that I might see something I liked since it had been a while. I saw three somethings I liked and I'm so happy I decided to pay the shop a visit http://vid1345.photobucket.com/albums/p664/t_tomsett/IMG_27961_zps94518be1.mp4 (video)
  23. I just add my prime to the small amount of water left in my tanks right before I refill them. There's normally about 15-20% water left in the tanks because I don't remove the fish when I'm doing water changes.
  24. I think, as long as we have the time and capacity to care for the fish we buy we should rescue as many as we can from the stores Congrats, that's an awesome project!
  25. I think as she was keeping it in a bowl, it was better than any other alternative. I don't think your advice was wrong but I also think its great she's getting a proper set up
