  1. This is her tank and the extent of her activity - This is more typical behavior -
  2. Oh and her body is about 1.5-2" long. With fins about 2-2.5". Would a video help?
  3. Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 10 I may have fixed a lot taking the gravel out it was disgusting
  4. He turned out to be a she and she is still kind strange. She glass surfs and swims in one spot near the bottom a lot. She is doing better eating and gets 4-6 pellets a day. Her snail friend died and the two baby fish that were in there temporarily have found a new home. I also removed her gravel (best I could, at least) and added a handfull of glass beads and a glass vase with some beads as well. I dose Prime daily and have been doing water changes every other day. I just wish she would be more active especially around the middle of the tank.
  5. Sorry it's been so long, everyone. Things have been hectic here and we weren't able to move so we are unpacking. Mikey, it's drops, not ppm. Amanda, My filter does have the cartridge, the sponge insert you don't replace and I have also shoved two plastic pot scrubbers in the filter this week as well for more benificial bacteria accumulation.
  6. I must have mis-read the test. I changed all the water and everything is currently reading 0 so I don't have the ability to re-test. Sorry, guys. I don't know how I got those numbers in my head but none of them were zero I can tell you that. I can probably test the water in the new place later this week, actually. If I remember while I'm there cleaninig.
  7. Okay, I'll change the water. I feed him about 20 pellets a feeding. I was told they don't have stomachs and I had to give him a lot to keep it in his system. I added Tetra Safe Start when I added the first three fish, why isn't my tank cycled? Oh and I'm moving this weekend, will the change in water hurt them? I'm going to transport them in 3 liter soda bottles.
  8. Emperor Kim Cho III came to live with me in my home on June 6th of this year. As I traded in the carcasses of fallen peasants, Emperor Cho watched with pleasure. Suddenly, he was being chased! He fought and finally found a good hiding place but the kidnapper was so strong, he removed the huge stone he was hiding under! He may have been captured but he wasn't done fighting! After struggling for what seemed like hours, the kidnapper tried to torture the location of his wealth out of him via suffocation! Finally, he was returned to a small prizon while he caught his breath. Just as he was calming down and checking out his surroudings, another prizoner fell from the sky! He quicky displayed his dominance and took rule over the newcomer, named Diver Dan. Dan wasn't the same species as him, he was a snail. "Snails surely don't deserve to sit around and make me do for myself!" he thought. It was then he became his servant and entertainer. Surely a dumb snail could handle the job. After what seemed like days in the prizon, Emperor Cho was taken to a new kingdom and set free. This is where he currently rules over Diver Dan and spends his days staring at his reflection. He is a handsome goldfish, after all.
  9. I had a three goldfish in my 20 gallon tank and they all started dying, one by one about a week after I got them. I now have a panda telescope eye goldfish and an ivory mystery snail in there. Emperor Kim Cho III is super inactive and isn't eating all of his food. What can I do to make him more active and eat more? He leaves most of his food on the bottom of the tank.
