  1. If you see that fish that stops you in your tracks and steals your heart, I don't see why you couldn't take it home with you. ;)

    Heck yeah I can't wait for it to happen, I remember the first ranchu I saw was a chocolate chu and I wanted it so bad... I've yet to seen one again x---x

    Thanks

    By the way I had the same Sun sun-304B filter, it was working excellent!

    Thanks! and yeah Sun-sun so affordable and great working.

    Three is just fine! Make sure to find the one that you fall in love with at first sight :D

    Thanks for your input ^__^ I can't wait to find a 3rd, so far these two have made me so happy.

    Your tank and Goldfish are beautiful!!!

    Thank you Heidi so much for your compliment ^__^ The tank is such a work in progress atm I can't wait till I have the bottom carpeted with tied down plants.

  2. Should I stick with the 2 Ranchu's I have inside my 72 gallon bow front, or would adding a 3rd be a possible option?

    I want my little guys to grow up safe so I'm considering going to the fish store today just to drool over all the other fish that can be in communities. But what IF I see that one fish that stuns me and I fall head over heels in love with it? Would I have to say no to it and just go home, or would it be safe to add a 3rd ranchu to my 72 gallon aquarium?

    Here's a video of the tank.

  3. I scored so hard core on a craigslist ad.

    2x coralife double strip lights
    2x glass lids for the 72 gallon tank,
    1x bubble wand
    1x fresh water master kit
    1x bottle of cordon amquel+
    1 bottle of PH up
    1 bottle of aqueon water clarifier
    1 emperor 280 filter
    1 marineland filter that's huge and has double filtration
    1 half bottle of top fin water dechlorinator
    1 algae scraper
    2 fish nets
    1 half empty bottle of tetra min fish flakes
    1 full bottle of nutrafin max
    1 bottle of kent fresh/marine detox
    8 pack of maracyn mar del dissolving powder
    1 72 gallon canopy

    All and all... 170$ well spent?

  4. They're cute! What's the boy's name?

    I know how you feel about the fry thing. I've done it before, and these days I don't have that kind of time. I kind of cringe when mine start doing this and hope that if I do see eggs they'll just eat them. Buuuuutttt, I also know myself and if I see any fertilized with eyes I'll freak out and try to save them. :rofl Irrational, I know.

    Well now that i know genders, The girls name is Valentine, and the boys name is Cream Puff. That's so cool so glad I bought Valetine a buddy and got to find out genders by doing so. Didn't know she was a girl. Both bought from different locations, he was a 5 dollar gold fish, she was a 22 dollar gold fish xD Lady and the Tramp much?

  5. Mine do that for quite a while after a water change, no eggs yet though. It could be the fresh water or temperature change that makes them get frisky :D

    Ah! Okay well I'm crossing my fingers I never get eggs, I wouldn't want to deal with the death toll, rehoming, fry raising bah just sounds frightening at this time xD But I'm glad they are coupling cause they always swim the tank together this is pretty adorable.

  6. It looks to me like your red cap is the female. When she pushes back she's letting him know "you're not the boss of me!"

    Awwwwww that'd be so funny to find out Valentine is a girl, I'd have to rename it cause it comes off as such a boy name to me xD

    hehe Cute goldfish.

    Thanks ^__^ I love them dearly oddly enough.

    Looks like breeding behavior to me. Mine also do the pushing thing to each other at feeding time. My female usually is the one pushing the others away from the food area.

    Hmmm this was happening soon after a water change... Hope they don't try to breed... x---x its just a 72 gallon tank and I definitely don't have a pond.

    That is mating behavior my friend. You have a boy and a girl and it's spring.

    Glad to know I got a boy and a girl, and can tell who's what. Wonder what the babies would look like if they did actually do anything, since they are two different coloration types. Wonder which one is more dominant.

  7. So my two gold fish live inside of a 72 gallon bow front, with a big ole canister filter underneath keeping the water clean, I chose to add live plants and keep it bare bottom. Anyways... So the waters healthy, I feed them varied diets of blood worms, veggies, pellet food (That I soak before feeding to them), sea weed occasionally, duck weed.

    Anyways... So I assume there healthy.... But what the heck are they doing?

  8. Omgawed just had one recently, SO I went to go fishing in the dream, caught a bunch of random fish, filled some tanks up with the water from around it, and put them inside, all of a sudden the fish start growing too big for the tanks there in, become aggressive towards other fish, I put them in a bag, and magically the bag would write out what species of fish it was, one was a fire eel, another an apistogramma, one was a betta, one was a oscar fish, and one was some type of evil thing. Don't know. But was triply as heck cause I had to rehome the fish and my poor gold fish suffered from having things share the tank, also they grew at unnormal rates as if inches before my eyes, was a pretty creepy dream, all while in the dream I felt like a terrible fish owner, risking the lives of so many fish and my own current ones.

  9. May I come over and see? I promise I won't try to lug the tank outta your house HAHAHA. xDD

    Valentine and Cream Puff. Love the names!

    Haha I got tomorrow off so if you really wanna see feel free to drop by :P

    I love them too :D they are so adorable and omgawed they spend so much time together, they seem to really like each other. Like they'll swim the entire tank together, swim in spirals upwards and go in and out of the bubble wall together.

    Was a bit eager today so went to fish store and fumbled across this beautiful gold fish, he has a few scales that shimmer so bright compared to the rest its epic. One of his gills looks odd but I don't know if it was born that way or happened elsewhere, but he looks healthy beyond that, and has been interacting with Valentine quite a bit, I'm going to call him Cream Puff.

  11. Congrats on the upgrade!! Your tank is lovely :heart

    I'm in the 2-3 camp. Understocking is where it's at ;) Less work/worry, and if you come across something you absolutely have to have you have the room. I keep two in my 75 gallon ;)

    Thanks ^__^ I can't wait to add in more plants though. I agree less stocking will be the best, I'm going to just do a duo so it'll be easier maintenance. So can't wait till I find that ranchu that catches my heart like this one did.

  12. Looks good! Your fish is cute! Forever alone--no way. Brother or sister fish is waiting!

    or...... L O V E R fish :whistle

    Oooh, LOVER waiting in the wings!!

    Oh god I hope not xD I don't have the space to handle a billion little ranchu babehs. but my ranchie has been swimming around the entire tank just back and forth side to side, zig zags, he's even stuck around behind the bubble line and swam in and out of it adorably. i'm so happy about the large amount of space my ranchie has.

  13. Hehe well they said they'll deliver Tomorrow around noon, so there will most definitely be pics, though I'm crossing my fingers SO MUCH that its leak proof, good lord that's the largest worry at the moment of buying second hand, but I have positive thoughts these are good people, since they said they miss owning fish, and only stopped doing it because they didn't want to risk the structure of there house could support the weight.

  14. I would put no more than two (or three, at the absolute most) to start. Then, once you get to know your new tank, and your parameters, a little better, you can think about adding another fish.

    As someone who's been at this a while, I'd like to tell you how much less work it is to be understocked. If I had to do it over again, I think that I'd probably be a lot more conservative in my stocking. Lol!

    Yeah I was kinda thinking just the two to be honest, have them grow up with each other, I love my ranchu' and I hear they do better with a buddy. Don't know if its true or not but I don't mind getting another ranchu. I'm pretty excited bout all this space, instead of the 20 long, I'll have 4ft of space to play with and aquascape with live plants, So excited.

    Thanks for your advice :D

  15. I've known owners of heavily planted tanks, to go 5-6 months without water changes, they just make sure to top it off.... So depending on the set up this is actually do able. The tank were very fine, though I'd only recommend this for very advance tank owners, who carefully and fully understand the TDS of their tank and many other important things needed to be known to do this.

    Very doubtfully with any goldfish tank. :)

    idk a heavily planted 250-300gal with one goldfish maybe lol.

    Right...and this person exists where? :rofl

    Well the person I know to do it is on a different forum called ######, Said they went 6 months just topping it off, but when they actually did a large water change it screwed up the chemistry of the aquarium. There's also something called a Walstad method, which is the plants tank care of everything and you can remove all electrical items from the tank, but that's a superior natural method. Anyways O,..,O *Ducks out*

    Oh yeah definitely not gold fish tanks, but wonder if they knew that when saying that, If so they are fools, if not then I don't know to be too soon to judge xD
