  1. -And that thing is... 'Food, food, food, food....oooh scary thing.. nah, food, food, food, food, ooh another fish.... food, food, food, food' And once they reach a certain age... Thanks for the replies!
  2. I really like your redcap! Beauties!
  3. Holy cow! You have the cutest goldies i've ever seen!
  4. Looks really nice! It looks real 'Fresh'
  5. Yes, the internet thing stinks. Especially when i've got so many nice goldfish photos to view! Thanks!
  6. Hello, I've recently posted about a bottom-sitting fish. Since transfering him to a fully cycled tank with some Dojo Loaches, he's been acting great. Always swimming around & trying to find food. I also got 2 fish from a lady who could no longer care for them. One died within 2 days (I think a internal problem) but the black moor is now in a fully cycled 15 gallon, with some ottos, which he harasses by the minute. As for me, my internet is down (Hence the lack of posting) so i've been using the library every few days. Just thought i'd share. Thanks for everything!!
  7. Yes, I think they need that mental stimulation. Naturally they'd always have something on their mind.
  8. Beautiful! I'm enjoying your betta, as well. I've got a few (6) myself. But they reside in much more bland 'homes'. Something to really look at!
  9. Okay, thanks. Just as you responded I read that in the 'Goldfish Types' Section of the website. Thanks again
  10. Hello, sorry for the bother- I?ve seen some really nice fish lately at my LFS including: Sarassa Comets, Shubunkin, and just some regular commons/comets. I have a large 22 gallon Rubbermaid tub that is open for any fish. This tub looks like a 30 gallon in my opinion. It tapers upward a bit, and has a good depth & a good amount of surface. Would I be able to get 1-2 goldfish for this? I?ve really been liking Comets & Commons. I plan on seeding it with one of my well-established tanks, and adding a stocking of media in the tub. It should cycle fairly quickly. Thanks !
  11. Thanks for the post- very interesting. Do you think lethargic behavior can often times be linked to boredom?
  12. Yes, in all your photos you've posted always together - very cute. Now that my goldfish is in a stable tank, he's doing real well. In a few weeks perhaps i'll look for a tank mate. I imagine it would make him much more happy. Thanks-
  13. The fact that he may need a friend did cross my mind. I'm always on the look out for a new fish. But i'd like to balance out my current tanks out, first. He was with 4 or so other fish of his kind, at the LFS. I remember them swimming together. Yes, favorites are tough to admit, but it's natural. Thanks again~
  14. Also, forgot to add - I put in a 90GPH filter from one of my older Cichlid Tanks that I kept moist in my bigger tank. It's a sumbersible filter. The tub is around 15 gallons. Honestly, the black moor is doing really well. I will try to film him swim about! Thanks~
  15. Hello! As for the puffs, all the sand & substrate went from the 20 -> 10. I'm positive they'll be just fine. I added a socking of the old media as well. They are swimming about just fine. I've had them for about 2 years. I love those little guys. The 20 has 2 Dojo Loaches, 1 Oranda, 1 Otto. I plan to move them over to the 10 tomorrow. I just didn't wan't to take them all over at once. The Oranda is definently not bottom sitting right now. I've never seen him so active. Thanks a lot!!
  16. Thanks guys! So far, the Oranda & Moor are doing really good. The Moor has made an amazing recovery, and is eating great. Sadly, the Ryukin has passed away. He had some severe internal infection - I imagine it's for the best that he passed. RIP
  17. Hello, I'm not sure if you all have read my previous posts - But in a short summary, I recently bought an Oranda, put it in a 10 gallon with good filtration, planned to let it cycle.. with my new finned friend in, but realized this was not going to work, and my goldfish liked to relax on the bottom of the tank if you will, he'd eat, though. So today, at work I decided that when I come home, if my Red Capped Oranda was laying on the bottom of the tank I was going to switch my 3 Dwarf Puffers which live in a WELL established 20 gallon long, that's been running since '04 with first, Cichlids, then Dwarf Puffers ---> with my Oranda that's in a 20 gallon long. So first, I put the Dwarf puffers in a holding tub for a few hours, took 99% of the sand & gravel out of their tank, let it run for a while, then added a few new gallons of water to make up for the loss, and take the heater out, put it in the 10 gallon, let that heat up. Then I let the 20 gallon run for a while, and I acclimated my Oranda into it. Then, Once the 10 was heated up & the previous sand & gravel was in, I added the puffers. Right now the 20 still has some Dojo loaches, ottos & now my goldfish. My Oranda seems much more happier with all the room, and some little fish friends to look at, as well. So, we'll see whats going on in the morning. This may have sounded like the absolute dumbest story you've ever read, and I acted on impulse. But, if you believe in the instincts thing... my instincts were really talking to me... all day. In all honesty the Oranda means a lot more to me than my puffers. Even though I love them too! So, sorry to bug you all tonight, and I will post some photos in the afternoon, tomorrow. Thanks for reading & bearing with my types-man-ship.
  18. What beauties! Something to wish for!
  19. Here's a photo of the rescues - you can see that one of the moor's eyes is way big for the other, and his lip in kinked. but, despite his problems he eats peas like no other. The other one does not eat... or hasn't yet. These fish obviously are attached & never leave sides. Thanks, devs!
  20. What beuties! I love the gravel! I like their names, as well.
  21. Thanks! Yes, I do hope these fish work out. I am doing 50% water changes daily. I notice a bit of laying on the bottom of the tank, but at least he's eating good. I'll have more questions as I encounter more barriers. I really appreciate all the help! Thanks -
