  1. So I have purchased a Ryukin and he will be shipped out on Monday. And before he gets here I'd like to know maybe a few different verities of foods I could go out to my local grocery store and buy to prepare for him. I have brine shrimp ordered a shining pellet food and the repashy gel food but I'd like to keep a source or fresh veggies too feed him. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you in advance for the great help!
  2. Thanks you so much, I don't really have a petco in my area but I'm raising money to get a 55 gallon tanks from my local petsmart.. Always wondering what are the right aquarium water test kit should be? The API Master Kit (it uses liquid drops) is very reliable, and it will allow you to test for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and pH. I need to know what should the range be in each section

  4. Thanks you so much and yes I meant sunsun canister filter I purchased it off of eBay it seems to work very well I have had it set up for a few months and it seems to work well.
  5. Here recently my goldfish past away So, I took a break from keeping goldfish, but I just now wanted to get back into keeping them so I went online to my favorite place to order good quality goldfish (River Garden Nursery). I ended up ordering a ryukin from them and will be shipped to me Monday morning and I have had this 20 gallon long aquarium set up with a sun set 600 filter and was wondering if that would be suitable for a quarantine tank for a few months so I can collect money to buy a bigger one? Please help me out I want to do right with this new little guy I'm getting.. (By the way the goldfish is pretty young and is only 4 inches from head the the start of the tail.)
  6. He is most likely blind in that eye. To me that is what it looks like. Fish with blind eyes tend to have a film over top of there eye.
  7. I measured head to tail 9inches and it is a SunSun canister filter it really docent cause much terrible flow in my 20 gallon I have a flow control value that helps thought
  8. Yes this is his quarantine tank till I get a larger tank I am hoping if mother nature allows me too go one.I am going to look for one. 55gallon or 75 gallon nothing less than 50gallon.
  9. Now its like 600 I got confused sorry. I misinterpreted the question. Its a little over 600gph

  11. What are we suppose to post? I would love to have a new book for my collection!
  12. I was wanting to know how often should I do water changes. I have a jumbo Oranda in a 20 gallon long aquarium with a 40gallon canister filter. I normally do 2-3 water changes a week throughout out the week days so on Saturday and Sunday I can just sit back and rest. I think that it is a bit much though. I usually do water changes Monday Wednesday and Friday if possible. is this too much or not enough?
  13. I want to use your Agar agar gel food but my fish is a floaty fish and I'm not to sure if this would work for him and I don't know what kinds of baby food I should use? Do I have to use baby food of could I use fresh/frozen veggies?
  14. I don't use amazon I use ebay but yes that's the one I am getting
  15. Not for sure I haven't been able to purchase it. I hope tomorrow I will get too order it.

My goldfish started acting up a few weeks in to Feb he was laying upside down with his face on the bottom. I did a fasting for 3 days then peas still didn't help. Then I stayed up for 48 hours and I noticed that when the light was turned off he was laying normally like fish should when sleeping. I shined my iphone light to the tank and moments later noticed he was upside down so I turned it off. I then be began to watch tv then noticed he was right side up. As it gets close to bed time he goes upside down till the light turns off. During the day he will float normally and swim normally like a healthy fish should. He seems healthy and happy but when it gets time for bed and it is dark in my room he turns upside down till all lights have been turned off.
