  1. Awe wow thats fun to have to manage. Im so lucky my tap water is ideal for goldfish. its 8.1-8.2 stable and try to budge it all you like it aint gonna happen LOL. Our town water supply comes from a coastal bore that is among lots of shell beds undergrounds. The water straight from down there is very high in sulphur and iron. The water treatment place removes the sulfur and iron so that we dont all smell like we have showered in rotten eggs and look like our clothes have been washed in sewage. Im so thankful they treat the water. So are my fishies LOL
  2. Awe fishies will be happy with little waterchanges then. I kinda feel like my fishies need little singlets when i give them cold waterchanges in winter I dont like water that cold, my bones hurt so much with cold. They say put ice on injuries, but the ice hurts more than the injury lol. Im managing my tank planties ok, and hubby adds extra ferts to the garden plants. I think they need extra minerals due to the calcium binding it or some such thing.
  3. Awe no! are you buffering it for de feeeshies? we are so lucky our ph here is so stable. it is very high but stable. its near impossible to adjust it LOL.
  4. awe Mandy I love your stickers Hi everyone
  5. Thankyou Dawn! I went with an abstract lighthouse. Painkillers muddle brain so should be very abstract 😂
  6. Stuck in bed with back pain today. Think i might do some drawing! 🤔 Question is abstract or realism? How much brainpower can i muster with these painkillers? 😂
  7. My sisterinlaw made some snickerdoodle soap once! It was devine! All buttery and cinnamony (is that a word? 😂)
  8. Awe Koko im sorry Justines struggling so much. I have bad anxiety and some days even as an adult theres no why, its just there for no reason. Im so impressed you are helping Justine so much. So many kiddles dont get the help they need and live tourtured lives. Its so lovely your little Justine isnt one of them! <3 Daniel, your packman made me giggle! 😂
  9. Awe, Im so sorry Koko! That kind of nastyness does destroy already fragile trust for little people in strangers. Sending you and Justine a big hug each!
  10. Hello! Thats so horrible for lil Justine! Was she badly hurt?
  11. Thankyou mikroll! I might just do that! Thanks Koko. If they spawn again ill let you know.
  12. Thankyou Anorea. I still have his little tank all set up. I cant bring myself to put it away yet.
  13. Yes. Its sad. Thankyou Taryl. He was a sweet baby. Thankyou Dawn. Isnt it funny how attached we get in such a short time!
  14. Hi, just wanted to let everyone know little Wiggles didnt make it. About 4 days ago i noticed he was starting to have trouble swimming. His little spine was getting kinked. Then day before yesterday i noticed his little mouth was stuck open. He had no food in his tummy and was struggling to even try to eat. Poor baby. We put him to sleep last night.
  15. They are so funny! ? Wigles says "thank you Lisa!" He is a grump me thinks!
  16. I hope hes sweet! Wiggles might give Beaker a run for his money in the lump department!
  17. Thats ok! I cant stop laughing at him either! A thought.... maybe i should be more worried about my big goldies than him when i put him in their tank
  18. It must be either talent or genetic I knoooow! Cracks me up!
  19. Wiggles Eggbert is 16 days old today! Yay! I can now see his tail with my naked eye! if i squint! And a trace of a dorsal? He has mastered the yawn.... and his tummy is filling in now, not so transparent any more! He also has anal fins! See? Anal fins? And hes mastering his goldfish grump! He has completed one round of prazi pro. Starts round 2 tomorrow. He seems to be becoming sightly more aware of his suroundings, but doesnt rush to greet me yet. Hes still having daily 100% WC with prime and a drop of methylene blue. I will stop putting the methyle ne blue in after this round of prazi is completed. Hes eating mostly the instant baby brine shrimps with some powdered spirrilina or hikari first bites, but its hard to tell still how much he is actually eating. Its impossible to measure out individual meals for him so ive just been popping a tiny drop of the brine shrimp in his tank after his evening WC then added the spirrilina powder or fry powder of a morning. Theres still losts of brine shrimp left but it gives him a little variety.
  20. Ok. Ill see which is easier to dose. I was watching Wiggles and thought he was spitting out his food but he has a full tummy so maybe he just cant physically fit any more shrimp in? If i notice hes spitting and not full then i might bring forward his prazi. Otherwise i might leave it another week or so till he can cope with the airstone on more than a dribble. Thankyou Lisa!
  21. Awe! Im so sorry Lisa! He was a really stunny boy! Im sorry!
  22. Thankyou so much for linking me Lisa! I loooved Waldos story! Do you have a more recent Waldo photo? I thought i noticed Wiggles flashing this afternoon. Im not sure if its newfound energy from eating better food, or actual flashing. Should i pop some prazi in yet? Hes 7 days old. I have prazipro or prazi tablets by Blueplanet. At the moment i have only been adding prime and a drop of methylene blue with his daily waterchanges. And the airstone is still only at minimal function.... like one bubble every half second. If i make it faster yet he gets drawn towards it.
