  1. I'm so relieved and happy. I know I'll miss him. But knowing he's in a "good" new home brings me joy for him. I was really worried where/who/ how!!! I'm keeping him until winter here is over. I'll meet up next month to see the layout..which is just a few blocks away from me. Here is what his new home looks like! We couldn't be more lucky!
  2. Thank you! I'm SO happy to say I found Felix a pond HoMe. I reached out to someone on Nextdoor. And they still have their pond with Koi & some Goldies. Feeling sad too...I'm gonna miss him...
  3. Hello, I'm currently looking to rehome Felix, my 8 yr old (9 yrs in January) comet. My living situation will be changing, and I won't have room for his 40 gallon breeder tank. I'd love for him to go to a really happy place , where he would be taken good care of & so this is my first post and search. I feel like this is the best goldfish community! I live in Austin TX, & I'd prefer that Felix not have to be stressed with a long journey to his new home...so hoping to find someone here & "here"
  4. Thank you, Jared!! I'm going to check out that recommended thread. We really appreciate it!
  5. Hi Everyone, It's been a while since I visit the forum. I was looking at Felix's (5 yr old Comet) medicine cabinet. And would like to have some reliable medicated food on hand. I have run out of my Medi Gold and Metro Meds, and really would hate to be unprepared. Have any of you found a good replacement? Suggestions? Thanks , Chricel and Felix!
  6. Pretty cool how you repaired it! Luckily the 40B I picked up from Petco was made without the bracket. I filled it and no bowing. I was a bit worried.
  7. They don't have to, but different brands have different designs. I think that it has to do with the thickness of glass used. I preferred one without a brace as it is easier to clean. I concur! Much easier to get around without the top brace.
  8. Sharing the info will hopefully help out the next person who needs it! The key is if the canopy has 2 pieces = braces....1 canopy piece = no brace.
  9. Thanks! Dr. FosterSmith don't carry the 36x18 to fit without the bracket. But Petco has a Tetra brand that does work
  10. Ok.. returning the Marineland one. & called Petco, they got some in and are one piece 36x18! Woot!
  11. I just got my Marineland glass canopy from F&S. I stared at the unopened box for a while, concerned at how square it was rather than rectangular So when I open it I'm a bit relieved as there are 2 pieces which sit side by side...... My 40B doesn't have the top middle bracket, only one in the bottom! I really thought I was setting this today
  12. it may be different with your tank but on mine you can't see the sticker when it's full of water even though it's white which stands out on my black tank. I wish I could have painted under the divider [emoji30] I was trying to get paint in between the divider and glass...but gave up

I wish I could have painted under the divider [emoji30] I didn't even notice it, until I was painting the bottom. Went to check for light leaks...&...
  14. it may be different with your tank but on mine you can't see the sticker when it's full of water even though it's white which stands out on my black tank. I wish I could have painted under the divider [emoji30] My sticker is also white, though it's under the rim, in the corner. It showed, but you had to look in *just* the right way. I let it show, until it recently, when I covered the bottom with sand. That florescent orange would drive me insane though. Just put a nice big rock (with an anubias, of course!) there, and you'll be none the wiser! You're going to love that tank! The 40b is my favorite. Yea, I have this ornament of a Ruin head, which is actually an airstone. But I think I'm gonna fill it and sealit so it's not hollow. Then attach some plants directly on it. That should hide the sticker
  15. I used Apple Barrel (cheap) in black acrylic paint. Using a foam roller and applied several layers. Mostly cause the roller was cheap & I was a bit impatient and would apply the next layer before it dried entirely. Which then would pull off the first coat. But once it dries it's really easy to layer.
  16. Nice going guys! I grabbed my 40B this past Sunday. And painted the back & bottom black. And right where I can't get any paint, they place a florecent orange sticker!! Now I have to have an ornament of some sort there
  17. I'm leaning towards the Finnex Fugeray Planted plus. But since I have to wait a bit...that could always change. You guys have such a wonderful array of information!
  18. The filter is free...if you buy a filter with the tank..
  19. LOL! I did the same thing! was there 10 mins. early...I have a 40B!!
  20. I ordered my stand from here for the 40B. They have them for 55g as well. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3578+3730+3732+9883&pcatid=9883
