  1. Beautiful goldfish you have !!! What type of pleco is that ?
  2. Ya mine is about 4 inches from the sand
  3. What is the grain size of your sand ? I'm thinking about switching to JBL Sansibar Black instead of Onyx Sand, but the grain size is 0.2 to 0.5mm will it get sucked into my canister filter and damage it ?
  4. Mine looks like this: http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/16/beryve2y
  5. If they are sinking, then then 1 minute is enough. You might not even have to do it that long. Thanks
  6. After some sleepless night lol, I found some report about the Onyx Sand being sharp so I took a look at the micro picture of this type of sand and it is actually sharp. Eeeeeh no more onyx sand. BTW I think the Tahiti Moon Sand that u are using has its grain size ranges from 0.1mm to 0.3mm right ? My white sand ranges from 1 to 3mm, I bought it 2 months ago at my local fish shop, I think mine is not fine sand.
  7. I tested my water today and the pH is at about 6.2 is it bad for goldfish ? Tap pH: 8.0
  8. According to this they prefer hard water right ?Beautiful tank that u have, any black fish would be a ninja . Is your sand soft, because the seachem onyx sand is said to be sharp which I think can scratch my fish and the glass.
  9. Mine goldfish do the same things but I don't know if this can cause SBD because whenever they see me they would come to the surface and gulp a lot, or when they see me holding the goldfish food can. I don't think it would CAUSE swim bladder disorder, although my fantail is, how do I put it nicely, buoyant. (He is a fat little egg!) How long do you soak the pellets before feeding ? I make them sink with a syringe and soak them for 1 min because we don't have sinking pellets here in Viet Nam. I don't know if 1 min is enough or not.
  10. Ya, I worry about ot because I saw a video on youtube about a tank with black background and sand, and the black moor completely disppears in the tank if you don't use white light. Actually, I dod it because I don't want the bubble to disturb my view of the fish, I'm using canister folter so I cannot put the airline tubing into it like some of our fellows did with the sump, but goldfish need lots of oxygen so I attached the bubble wand to the top of the tank to make it less disturbing. Gotcha thank you. If I have a sump I would but the airline in there and get it out of my main tank, although I have my filter outlet flows at the surface I think it might not agitate the surface enough for those big fat chubby fish
  11. Can u post some pictures of your tank, I'm looking for it in the photo section but can't seem to find it. BTW I read some reviews about the Seachem Onix Sand and it is said to buffer the water and the grain is a little bit sharp, do you know about the standard pH, KH and GH for goldfish ? Is it good if the grain is a little bit sharp because some guys use it in his tank with corydoras claimed that it causes the loss of barbels and death for cory.
  12. I'm so jealous that you can keep marimo moss in your tank! They are so cool looking! Your fishies find them delicious? They are basically Jack snacks! Jack the oranda eats them until he gets a tummy ache, so I had to take them out and put them into the refugium. Wow it is good that u can grow plants, my goldfish treat everything as snack. I'm planning to try anubias next time foe my tank.

  14. What type of white sand are you using, is it pool ssand or a branded product ?
  15. I'm reading articles about the Onyx Sand and it is said to buffer the water a little bit so can you tell me a bit about suitable pH,KH and GH for goldfish. Because I google about it but there are many unreliable source.
  16. Do u have sand or substrate with dark color in ur tank ?My sand is bright white and reflects even more white from my lighting. The kitty toy on the left and the hat on the right in front of the filters were because I had lost the little parts that hold the filter away from the wall. I've since found them...and the girls have grown too. You have beautiful tanks, are they an common and a ryukin. Also what is the small ball on the left at the front of the tank ?
  17. Do u have sand or substrate with dark color in ur tank ?My sand is bright white and reflects even more white from my lighting. Mine is the same, but I'm thinking about something else and the Seachem Onyx Sand also acts as fertilizer for plants.
  18. Do u have sand or substrate with dark color in ur tank ?
  19. You can keep whatever fish you want. Don't let aesthetics change your opinions! Thank you, I worry about it because my tank would be darker and black fish like moor might not show well with the black background. What do you think ?
  20. It would look like this, without the driftwood. This is from a guy who uses onyx sand for his discus tank. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/15/8ema9yru
  21. I found this picture of a guy using seachem onix sand for his tank, it would look like this http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/15/nery7agy
  22. Thank you. So if I were to use black background and grey sand I cannot keep black ranchu or black moor right ?
