  4. Just me I would get 10 gal, even place it some where it will be temp and put it away when. It in use... Then you can keep all your tanks where you have them... But like I said that is me... I would have 20 more tanks if I had the space... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I love my goldfish community!!! I lost 6 of my very best fish due to my brain being fried after the death of my Mother... I did a crucial mistake of not checking the waters temp deep enough during a water change. My mentors and friends in the goldfish community came together and have me set up with beautiful new fish... And been of great comfort ensuring me these Mistakes happen to everyone... So I am up and running again. Here are some of them: here is 1 of the 4 red butterfly telescopes https://vimeo.com/182338212 A few of the young black butterfly telescopes Last but not least I am also working on the Blue Egg Phoenix conservation project bring back this almost extinct species of goldfish... Supper excited about these fry/juveniles I have more fish traveling back with me from Cincinnati, once I get them home and settled there will be lots of pics.
  6. I wanted to take the time to thank everyone for the help I had to euthanize my poor Bubbles, he got worse and on top of it all I got call that Moms cancer had took a turn for the worse the day after I posted this info... I had to travel to spend time with my Mother and family during her final days. I could not leave a sick fish like him in the care of my pet sitter. Again I appreciate everyone's help wish I could have done more for Bubbles.

  13.

  14. A concrete and steel building is a different story . You can still overload the floor for the design capacity and it is a good thing to check in with the building supervisor to see if they spec any particular load limit per square foot. You are probably right... I talked with the maintenance supervisor when I was setting my tanks up and he said our building was solid.... It was built in the 70's when they actually made building more heavy duty.
  15. I'm in a high rise on the 12th floor but have concrete floors and everything is fine for my big tanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Gary is amazing and so are his fish #3 is amazing [emoji7][emoji7][emoji7]
  17. Wonderful grooming... Nice look at what good husbandry can do for s lil Goldie
  18. I run mostly sponge filters... The water isn't always he clearest but if your a breeder the main function is to keep fish healthy... Clarity is a plus if you can achieve it, through mechanical filtration. Show tanks I love, and maybe I all set one up one day. But I enjoy all my fish green water, poopy water..etc But the most important is biological filtration... Making sure u have enough BB to handle your fish load.
  19. I prefer sand over gravel.... But I know their is plenty of people Who do bare bottom.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. Came home today and my new Black Butterfly spawned.... Even more fry coming soon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
