  1. I'm just about to feed them some frozen brine shrimp, maybe that will slow them down so I can take more pictures! They really are the sweetest little things. I love them.
  2. Okay, here are a few pictures I got of the littlest ones (who are in a fry net, because the goldfish in the tank nip at them).. The liddle ones are all eyes!! And then one shot, by chance, of a medium-ish sized one:
  3. ~ I just took some photos! Gimme a sec and I'll upload them. I've got to warn you - they're not very good, you need to know that one of my potential mother's names is "Twitch", and so, the babies sort of take after her!! They don't sit still!
  4. Okay, I definately think the fry in the pond (which have now been moved to the inside 55 gallon, because we bought a catfish [it is small now and cannot eat the fish outdoors, but can eat the baby fish...so we rescued them]) are shubunkins. They're still brown, but that's all right, they're starting to look like they're going to change sometime soon. They're inside, there's probably somewhere around 11 of them inside... I'm not sure, we can't count them because they're all wiggly and move around a lot. Some are very small (less than a centimeter) and some are going on two inches. I hope to get pics up soon! I've been feeding them goldfish flakes, some of their parents' food from outside (koi sticks), and frozen brine shrimp. They seem to like the koi sticks the most, this I can rationalise because I saw them picking off their parent's food outside in the first few months of their exploring. They're really cute~. I can't believe I'm a grandmom
  5. Well, if you run it under water it un-freezes and becomes just fleshy shrimpyness that you can pull apart into little bits and put in the water. They'll nip off of it and such. Or, you can drop the whole cube in and they'll all go at it. Either way will be fine!
  6. They should be fine. They're goldfish - goldfish are hardy fish, and many can survive without proper filtration for long, long periods of time. Don't work yourself into a panic. Think of all of those goldfish in goldfish bowls without air stones, that make it for some time. They'll be all right for a while until you can set up something better. I definately agree, go for a small rubbermaid container. That will help bunk the price of buying an aquarium. Keep it in the bathroom, buy a small spunge filter and you should be fine. You don't really need an airstone (goldfish can do without), but you should get one.
  7. Sometimes you can buy cubes of frozen brine shrimp. This makes a good meal for tropical freshwater fish! I raised my only surviving dalmation molly fry on it, and she grew up fine and now eats flakes. You can buy it at some LFS, just ask if they have some frozen section. This was the stuff I used: http://www.thatpetplace.com/FrozenFood/Pro...009/Detail.aspx
  8. Aww, a conjoined fry? How cute... too bad he's gone missing; perhaps he'll turn up (sometimes you can 'lose them in the crowd'). Are they still with their parents? If so, the parents might be munching on them! Good luck with the rest!
  9. Actually, out in ponds goldfish and koi spawn in late spring to mid summer. It's the heat that warms the water. Temperature of the water induces spawning. As does -- a clean environment, lots of good food, and room for more fish.
  10. This doesn't look like the pop-eye I've seen (my fish have had it before) -- but rather like his eye was sucked on by another fish? Do both of his eyes look like this, or is it only one? Then again, I've taken a look at the pictures closer and maybe it is pop-eye. Does it look like this up close: http://www.kokosgoldfish.com/2002/popeye.jpeg ?
  11. Also, if the goldfish have accessability to these eggs, they might be eating them without you knowing! Goldfish are bad parents, they'll eat the eggs, and the babies.
  12. Maracyn can make cloudiness occur, I believe. Read on the box.
  13. I don't know what they are, but they're coming into the big tank pretty fast, they're all over EVERYTHING. Anyone know? they're all over seashells, rocks, but not the glass of the tanks. And they're not algae green, they're... coloured green. It's almost weird!
  14. Appears to have fungus things on him but I didn't think it was that drastic. He's dead and I'm about to remove him and test the water. One other fish has these somewhat similar markings on him, but he appears all right -- should I add defungal stuff?
