  1. I'm not actually sure of the volume yet, I only just got it today and it's dark outside, but I can get a photo tomorrow. I would guess around 20 gallons, probably no bigger. I will look into that, I like a DIY job! Thank you.
  2. Hi guys! I've just bought a half barrel for my patio and since I've been out of the 'goldfish scene' for quite a few years I've realised I have no idea where to start when looking for a filter for it (like best models or type etc.) since everything's changed since I last went fish stuff shopping lol! Also consindering heating it so that I can keep a couple of goldies out all year (in UK), I wonder if there are many small pond filters with inbuilt heaters and if anyone has any experience with how reliable these are (or even seperate small pond heaters!?). Thanks for any advice
  3. Wow that's pretty cool. I like how that branch thing has sort of 'caught' the mossball like a hand ^.^
  4. Righto, I've done it. But it just looked like it all just came out the hole after I pulled the needle out.. but I guess it's still in the water.
  5. Thankyou for the link That's slightly different to info I've found.. but it looks like I should be ok to give her 0.1ml. I think I know what I'm doing now. I found a thread I just remembered I have that Fancy Goldfish book right in front of me which explains injecting etc. a bit. Explains where to stick the needle too which is helpful!! But if anyone has any tips for holding a telescope with pretty big eyes to inject.. that would be reeeally helpful!!
  6. I am searching because I know it's in a thread here somewhere (ages back) but just incase someone can reply quicker than I can find it.. Does anyone know the dosage of baytril needed for a fish around 3 inches? My Freddie has septicaemia and is pineconing a tiny bit. I have maracyn and medigold, but it's all about two years out of date.. and I can't easily/legally get it in this country to get any more. But my friend has some baytril and needles which she's bringing round shortly. Which is probably better than the maracyn anyway?
  7. Yeah, I'll probably do that.. see if there's someone I can email.
  8. Thanks Claire hmm, yeah that say's he must have blue.. he seems to be most of the other things on the list though. Just he's not very pointy.. and I have no idea what they mean about the eye shape.. I haven't sent of the thingy with the cheque yet.. I need to do that, cheers for the reminder!
  9. Ok, what I originally meant to say.. lol I can't actually remember.. yeah. I would have thought standards were higher in the US, just comparing most of the show fish I've seen here to US fish I've seen pictures of. But.. I'll chuck him in a show.. see how he does I guess.
  10. Your fish won't get to 5-6" in 15 gallons. I had two goldfish in a 15G for two years and they grew from about 1" to 2-3" but just stopped there.
  11. This may sound insensitive, but if it's an emergency don't risk your own lives to save your fish.. but yeah if you can, definately turn off/unplug filters and lights (if you are throwing a blanket over you don't want that to catch fire!) and if you have time and know somewhere you can put the fish, just net them into a bucket or something and take them with you.. but if the risk is low, I'd just leave them there, it'd be less stressful for them, even though you might worry more. Usually these alarms are just a precaution.
  12. I guess deviated colour patterns mean patterns that are abnormal or differ from what they 'should' be? You gonna get to reserve one while they're QTed?
  13. Yeah. I think also the showing of goldfish in this country is still very old fashioned, I've yet to meet anyone under 60 and female at shows! lol I don't think the standards are very up to date with the breeding that's going on in the world at the moment.
  14. Thankyouuu Maybe he could count as a tri colour, 'cause technically that's all he is if there's no blue.. I'm in UK btw, so going by these standards: http://www.bristol-aquarists.org.uk/goldfish/globe/globe.htm I guess looking at that he'd HAVE to be judged as calico, as that is the only other option apart from black.. and he's not black lol. I dunno.. I'm joining the Goldfish Society of Great Britain soon so maybe if I go to one of their meetings, I'll ask someone there about the colouring thing.
