  1. There are reasons to think that goldfish constantly being at higher temps will have consistently higher metabolism, and consequently have shortened lifespans. Having said that, how much of a shortened lifespan is not known. Other than that, goldfish should do just fine at 33C, as you have observed. You will of course want to make sure that plenty of oxygen is supplied, but I don't think there is much else to do, or worth trying. Alex, which should I get first ammonia , nitrate or nitrite testing kit ?
  2. I haven't bought an Ammonia test kit because my LFS is out of stock and they will be available next week. So I am going to buy Seachem Prime and ammonia test kit. Between the Sera NO3 Test Kit and Seachem Ammonia Alert which one is better guys, because those are the only things available at the affordable price here in Viet Nam. One more thing: My tank temperature is usually at 33 Degree Celsius because the weather is kind of hot here in Viet Nam, the goldfish is acting normally, swimming around, asking for food when they see me. Is it ok ?
  3. I did it yesterday, and I do WC and gravel cleaning once a week
  4. Yes my tank is a little bit overstocked atm with 7 goldfish (2 orandas, 1 ryukin, 1 comet and 3 baby lionheads) becuase I got them before I know anything about stocking and my tank is 53 gallons.
  5. It is a slightly ammonia smell, but it can only be realized if my face is very close to the water
  6. About the smell of the water that I asked you earlier, I can only smell it if my face is about 5cm from the water, is it normal ?
  7. Well it's hard to know because the picture is a little bit blurry and it's hard to see at these angles. I think it's difficult to tell the sex of single-tailed goldfish.
  8. I would choose the first one to go with white or slightly yellow sand teehee
  9. Mandy, how long does it take for the matrix to actually start working ?
  10. OMG beautiful, what did u feed him ? My lion heads are still small after 3 months, they only grew a little bit.
  11. Well I guess my bacteria system is not stable yet
  12. Sometimes my tank water has a slightly smell of ammoniac , has it happen to you before ?
  13. I have these inside right now 1st tray: sponges 2nd: sponge and Gex Mega Bio 3rd: bio ceramic rings 4th: some of bio ceramic rings and sponge to replace activated carbon 5th: 1 litres of Matrix
  14. Can you recommend me any kind of biomedia for canister filter phase? Canister file is kind of new for me.
  15. Ah ok thanks. Should I get another Seachem Matrix to replace it ?
  16. Is it bad, cause I've been using carbon for 1 month in my filter.
  17. How many liters of matrix are you using ? Currently I have 1 liter for my 200 litter s tank is it enough ?. By the way is activated carbon good for gold fish ?
  18. Hi guys, has anyone used Seachem Matrix before ? I have just bought 1L of this product and I want to know how to use it properly which tray should i put it in (canister filter) last one or middle one ? Is it ok if I use a liter of this for my 200l tank. Thanks
  19. I totally agree with you. I had a bare bottom tank for about 2 months and they were like "ok let's swim back and forth, doing nothing and waiting to be fed again...... Boriiiiiiing" .So I have addes sand for a week and the result is amazing, they swim around picking up sand and spit them out, all of them, they are like "oooh food... Aahhh it's sand....Fooooood......Saaaaand". It ia fun to watch, and they seem to be happier. Even my oranda in QT love the sand I put in there for him, just a little amount but it can keep him happy while being alone. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  20. Thank you, my tank is a little bit overstocked so I'm trying to do the best I could. Btw has anyone used Sera Gold Colour before, cuz I think my Ryukin is changing from red to orange. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  21. I added sand to my tank, and love the result. Vegies for little babies.
  22. Is it ok if I add substrate or black sand to my tank with vannister filter and sponge filters ?Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  23. So I cannot use one canister filter only for the tank ? Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  24. I'm thinking about getting a canister filter for my 53gallons tank, and I'm having my eyes on these two filters. Have you guys used them before ? Please help. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
