  1. you really did a nice job. Congrats on the new tank
  2. I really like it. Koko does such a great job.
  3. THat was wonderful. I had to send that to all my family and friends that think I'm nuts with my 140g goldfish tank!!!
  4. Thanks for the laugh, RanchuGirl! How old was your daughter at the time?
  5. They are very cool. My son talked me into one for his birthday last May. I was very hesitant because I knew they could get up to 2ft if it grew to full size. But the fish store owner ( yea...I know!! ) said they grow slowly. His daughter has had one for 6yrs and it still hasn't reached the 20in mark.

    Green Poo?

    The color of their poo may very well be from the plants they have been eating. I'm not an expert but depending on what I feed mine...pea's = green poo, ProGold = a brownish color, etc. It's usually what they are eating that determines what color their poo is. But it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on them to see if they start acting funny.
  7. Thanks Koko, Maybe I can get more time off work to go. I'd really love to see one of these shows.
  8. I would love to go and meet everyone. It would depend on when the actual dates are. We already have a vacation planned in June. We should be out that way. I wonder if the dates will correspond?
  9. :alc Congrates again. More babies!!!! :monkey
  10. Glad to hear you were able to get a tank for your new fish. Now that you have your tank and filter it's a good idea to understand your water chemestry. Here is a thread that will be helpful to you. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/...php?showtopic=3 This is about cycling the water - all the changes the water goes through to make it ready for your fish. Cycling your water with your fish in it can be done, but you will need to watch your parameters (water chemestry levels) carefully. Some of the "cycles" can be toxic to your fish. I would suggest water testing kits as your next purchase. Preferably the drop tests as opposed to the test strips the pet stores recommend Aquarium Pharmacuticals is a good one if you can get them where you live. We are here to help you, so feel free to ask any questions you have along the way. And good lucky with your new pets. Oh and
  11. He's gorgeous!!! How much did you say you were selling him to ME for? Congrats on your find mookie!!!
  12. Yes, I use them when I go for week long vacations. My pros and cons on them. You usually have to do a trial and error period to make sure that your setting doesn't dispense too much food. The best advice I can give is less food is better than too much. Speaking from experience since I've come back to parameters readings being off because of it. You can only use dry food, and you are right about the soaking. If the food is wet it will stick inside. They are wonderful for the timer aspect. They have different timer settings so you can have it go I think it's up to 4 times in a 24hr period. You can also set it to rotate once or twice at each dispensing. Since the food dispencer rotates, when the food becomes low, it does seem to dispense less by the end of the week. But it is still dispensing some food. If you don't have someone who can come in and feed your fish while you are away, they are okay. Good or Bad?...Well I think they are one of the better ones out there, at least from the ones I've seen in my area. But I only use them when we are away and not on a daily basis.
  13. How are your goldies doing with all the plants now? I had mine planted for the last 6 months and in the last week they decided to shred just about every plant in there!!
