  1. thanks for your replay d_qolum Check this out. its from Sorsha post http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/...showtopic=41521 3 months His length from nose to tip of tail is approximately 1.75?
  2. Hi everyone I got a new Calico Fantail this mornig Its one almost 1" big and was wondering how old are when they're that big. I know it depends on they're conditions and genes but how old are they usually when they're 1". Is it a couple days, couple weeks, couple months, or a year old? Also how big do they get if taken care of really well?
  3. thanks Nenn is it pronounced "Cali co" or "Calii co"?
  4. it looks like a fantail but the color is like the goldfish on the left. theres nothing really special about this fantail the only thing is its mix of colors. -pic is from this forums heading
  5. Hi everyone Im looking into getting a new fish. Ive seen a huge version of is and it looks really cool. Like some ancient fish. I have no idea what the name so its hard to find care advice for the type of goldfish. It looks like a fantail. But its got splotches of orange white and black all over its body. Do any of you know what kind of goldfish I'm talking about?
  6. 10 inches long what size did they start out? how long have you had them? Congratulations on your huge fish
  7. Hi everyone I was just wondering what you all think about common goldfish? they're only 12 cents. Do you have any experience with them? I guess they're nothing fancy. Is it true they get to be larger than the fancy kind? thanks
  8. yeah. it was never on the body or the fins. I was really worried it was ich. It was really starting to cover the head. each day i noticed there were more. When it was under the eyes I thought that was the red flag to start the treatment.
  9. If the light that's in the tank is brighter will the agae be greener?
  10. I cant tell if theres ich in my tank. There are little shiny spots on on the little black tube that sucks up water into the filter and on the greenish brown algae that grows on the bare area of my tank. Do you think they're air bubbles? 2 weeks ago I had an ammonia spike to light green, and a little purple in the nitrite. I used a 3 day feeder over the weekend and it crashed the cycle. now ammonia = 0 nitrite = 0 nitrate = < 20 thanks
  11. Oh no.... I thought that was ich because I found it all around the cheek and under the eyes. I've already set the water to .3% salt and the heater is set to 80 degrees F.
  12. if it isnt on the gill-covers like under the eye's would you think that was ich? When you say it goes a way after a while does that mean after a few weeks or months?
  13. Do breeding stars go away? Also can they form under the eyes?
  14. Its official my whole tank is covered with ich and today I noticed my goldfish had some shiny white dots on some parts on her body. She's in a 10 gallon tank so i just put in my first dose of salt (10tps) at 7pm. tomorrow morning i'll put in another 10 tps. I havent had a heater in the tank before is there a process to raising the temperature in the tank properly? its a 65 degrees F and I need to get it to 80. Do I need to wait for the water to become .3 concentration before i turn on the water heater? at the moment the whater heater is just sitting in the tank not turned on. Today there wer'nt that many ich on the goldfish it looks like 5 at the moment how long does this process take. No lights except for feeding and cleaning .3 salt concentration and daily syphoning. when I do the syphoning how much of a water change will i be doing? How can I clean my cleaning equipment? with soap and hot water? Im sure the ich is in the cleaning equipment - thanks
