  1. I seen this video on the TV show "Inside Edition" the other day, giant goldfish living and breeding in lakes in Minnesota. *I wish I had a giant net to bring one home "
  2. Thank you! I sure appreciate you saying I am taking good care of Wishing Star! I am so surprised too at how big and flowing Wish's fins turned out. I found an even better picture of the fins from a little time ago, you can even see the orange color is lightly trying to come back again. A funny thing is, that after all these years I still can't tell if Wish is a male or female LOL! I'm really bad at that, so sometimes I say she and other days I say he. Wishing star knows, but he/she is keeping it a secret from me! ha ha!
  3. I only have one goldfish left so I will do a before and after with Wishing Star (Wish for short ) Wish had several areas of dark orange coloring which is one reason I was drawn to Wish in the pet store. After the "New Fish Quarantine" period was over, Wish had lost all of the pretty orange and was all white except the top part of Wish's eyes that looks like eye shadow. LOL! Then I put Wish in the 20 gallon long tank. Wish looked so tiny next to the big rock on the right side of the tank. Now wish is bigger than the rock!
  4. We are moving in a few days and I noticed that there is a water softener unit in the basement. I never had a water softener before so I know nothing about them. One of my friends said it will be bad for my houseplants and my fish. My bf said there is a water bypass valve on it so I can open it to get just the regular tap water to the faucets instead of using the soft water during water changes. But I'm not sure if the water softener goes into the water heater, and I use both the hot and cold water to get the correct temp for my goldfish and my tropical fish. My bf told me I'd probably have to flush the pipes to the faucet that I want to use, which would be the kitchen sink, and drain the hot water heater before use for the fish tanks each week. Would I have to do that? That would be a huge waste of water! I don't want to just keep the water softener off all the time, because I know that soft water is better for the washing machine, dish washer, shower heads etc to prevent the build up of deposits from regular hard water to help them last longer and work better. Any ideas? What do you suggest?
  5. A couple of my filter sponges for my Aquaclear filters need replacing pretty bad. They are disintegrating and tearing easily when I squeeze them out during water changes so I'm going to order some online. My question is that I see the Aquaclear replacement sponges online, but there are also generic sponges stating that they are, "Exact density and size of branded Aquaclear product" Would these generic sponges be as good as the Aquaclear brand, and are they even really supposed to be used safely in an aquarium? What do you guys think? Here is a link to the ones that I had in mind on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Aquaclear-70-Aquaclear-300-Replacement-Filter-Foam-Block-Generic/372704813699?hash=item56c6f02283:g:1oMAAOSway5dH3ea
  6. I thought you'd like to see this goldfish light that I seen on Ebay today. It can change to 7 different colors.It's pretty cool, I might just buy one https://www.ebay.com/itm/3D-Illusion-Night-Light-Fish-Guppy-USB-7-Color-Touch-Change/383206740009?hash=item5938e6d029:g:Q-8AAOSwKYldoS5~

  8. Two is company, and three is a school....

  14. Hi guys. I'm pretty sad because my cousin died yesterday due to stage 3 stomach cancer. She was just 56 years old. I was really hoping that she'd beat cancer like I did It breaks my heart to see her children and her brothers and sisters, friends and the rest of my family posting on FB how much they miss her already. I wish I could take away their sadness and heartache, as well as my own.
  15. I just seen a story from the news on tv on FB about someone throwing Tide detergent pods in a Koi pond and it foamed up and killed the fish Id like to do this to whoever did that.
