  1. Chris here... My fatty oranda "Dirty Face" is doing the same thing... Grrrr!!!!!
  2. Chris here.... $&%#£&@$!!!! Guess who is floaty again.... grrrrrrrrr....
  3. Chris here... Bummer!!! I'm sending you and your water baby healing energy...
  4. Chris here... Yay!!! I'm soooo glad those babies are perking up!!! Mr. P is back in the tank... He waited till alter dinner to start eating some bubbles... but not excessively yet.... . Stinker....
  5. Hi Lisa, I'll give that a try.... . Thank you!!! I just put Mr. Potato Head back in the tank... Oh!!! He is such a happy boy right now... He was seriously missing his tank mates... And I think his tank mates were missing that bossy boy as well... I'm hoping that skimmer will help change his behavior... fingers and fin are crossed....
  6. Chris here... how are those new babies??? Were you able to make the ich disappear??? Need more pics!!!
  7. Chris here... Photos of DIY skimmer... Not very attractive but it seems to work....
  8. Chris here... Built the skimmer and it's in the tank... Got to figure out how to camouflage it.... NOT the prettiest thing to look at.... I sure do hope that it it's an effective fix so that Mr. Potato Head can get over being floaty... it's been running all night... Shakaho, how soon should I try to put Mr. Potato Head back in the tank??? To day is day 3 of being in the in low water tub. His was butt down all day yesterday and is still but down this morning... Edit: Should I run the skimmer 24/7 or a specific number of hours per day, or a couple days per week??? Thanks!!!
  9. Chris here... Pretty!!!! Your pics turn out way better than mine!!!
  10. Ok.... I will build one and get it on the tank... Fingers and fins crossed that it makes a difference for all of them...
  11. Chris here... Mr. Potato Head is not butt up nor floaty in the tub this morning but he is crooked swimming, listing to one side or the other... Silly fish.... Not getting excited yet because his floatiness has been random... I was reading on Amoonklein post about water issues, Shakaho recommended a skimmer for the tank... I looked at the diy video... Looks simple enough... Do you think this would be beneficial for my tank??? The floatiness Mr. Potato Head has is self inflicted by eating bubbles at the top of the tank... Now two of my other babies are starting to do the same behavior... But as yet they have not become floaty... your imput is greatly appreciated....
  12. Oh dang!!!! I have been keeping a note book on water testing, WCs and filter cleaning... There is sooooo much to keep track of between tank maintenance, Quarantines, injuries, new fishys and now floaty fish... Really helps me keep my head on straight... I also discovered that the covers to the uptake tubes of my AC70s really makes a difference in how much gook is in the filter at cleaning time... I am thinking that I'm going to clean them 2 to 3 times a week... I cleaned them today at wc... wow!!! There's a whole lot of stuff in them... yucky!!! I have fingers and fins crossed that you found the issue that was making your babies act off kilter...
  13. Yes!!! Such a cute face... But there is a stinker behind all that cuteness....
  14. Chris here.... Today was wc day... moved Mr Potato Head in to a low water tub... (6"). He will be on duckweed daily... he is pouting, I thought to share his stink eye... I will turn off the air stone at feeding time... ????????????
  15. Hi Shakaho, I received the duckweed 9/23... I have attached 2 photos of what it looks like today... 1 is one of the duckweed in full sun and the other is the duckweed out of direct sun. I have been using about a tablespoon of the duckweed in the tank about every three days... I put the duckweed in tank water from a water change and changed that water with fresh tank water a week ago... I do water changes on Tuesdays... So I wast planning to put fresh tank water in tomorrow....
  16. I wonder if he'll drop some off over here....
  17. Chris here... what a nice chubby chu!!!!
  18. Chris here... I got some... but... it's not growing so great... The fishys love it!!!
  19. Chris here... how wonderful!!!! The whole family is photo sharing!!!
  20. Chris here... Oh!!! MJ your new baby is darling!!!!! I want!!!!
