  1. It shouldnt be anything to worry about! Goldfish are constantly growing new teeth. If you found a tooth on the bottom of your tank that means he has grown a new one.
  2. Are they realy bad? I remembr a post about someone finding as tooth while cleaning gravel.... I would be sure they grow new teeth just like any other animal...
  3. Ouch. You are asking quite alot. Bettas ave extremely violent fish, I would suggest no less than a 30 just for the two males alone! Also, girlfriends are also not a good idea... they dont really "love", they wil most likey fight to their bloody death. You are much better off just getting a five galon tank for each one to have individually.
  4. Seems like stress... I would try giving him a litte melafix and see what good that does...
  5. Dont worry, in time it will come if your try... What are you doing with your fry?
  6. A Pearlscale!?!? They are my absolute favorite!!!! You need to post pictures!!!! Good buy.
  7. I remember I was helping my unce at an auction and he let me choose one thing and he wil bid on it for me, and I saw the aquarium! He bid on it for 30 bucks and won it! It came with everything, and I came to replace the major stuff. Anyways, while I had an empty tank in my room withing to affort a new filter I was researching fish to get and I dont remember how I stumbled across the goldfish. I think it was when I went to Wallyworld and looked at their fish... I fell in love I guess.
  8. I have never seen it stored in bottlles... I am sure your could find an aquarist to give you some of their *clean* green water... Usually green water develops with time.
  9. Drop dead gorgeous. I wish I was that talented.
  10. I was thinking of that. well g2g toodles Thats a good idea. CRG, your fist post confuses me... only because I am about to go to bed... Are you talking about trying to transfer some bacteria from your aquarium to help speed up your new one? ... if this is what you were talking about why dont you just use your old filter or transport some gravel? Sorry if I am wrong about my assumption and sound like a lunatic (sp?)... I am sleepy
  11. I could never get my fish to spawn... If they are anything like godfish though you will need a second tank to put them in... I dont know how big your aquarium is... just make sure when they are grown you wont have to worry about them bumping into eachother... And wont you have to worry about the eggs being eaten? For the first couple days they can feed off their yolk sac and after that you can try Green water and Daphnia. Here are a couple links if you are interested.... Good one ANother one I hope this is of some assistance.
  12. Oh Olivia... such wonderful pictures! You should teach me your ways... Maybe its my camera...
  13. I would love to take in one! Unfortunately, my sister is manning my tank, and she loves my fish with all her heart. But I wont put you fish through it.... I LOVE your idea though... They wil be in excelent hands and you will meet alot of new "best friends"
  14. Nice catch! and that sounds like quite a place. I would love to visit an actual aquarium store...
  15. What a beauty!!!! How could someone do that? It really grinds my gears when I hear stories about harsh ways they treat their pets.!
  16. Gee... I guess I wil be honest. Since you want answers. I did go over at one point or another with four or five in a 30 gallon. Am I proud of it? No... But with my mistake I did accept some additional responsabilities with extra water changes... Its not easy, folowing rules. I refuse to think my fish suffered from my mistake though because I was always watching out for them and changing water whenever. In other cases though.... With an overpopulation of fish you were explaining in your first post I think they love their beauty, not the fish. Do you get where I am going? Sure they ARE fun to look at, and more fun and beautiful to look at when there is more... and they dont know/ignore the limits! Its not the fish trhey care about I think, its just the looks they give out.... JMO How can you get across to them? Will they even listen. Id just tel them that their fish will get sick and what they are doing is very irrespinsible.
  17. OoOoO... A fish room would be so cool! I can only dream...
  18. best.... analogy.... ever.... Even with heads as dense as centerblocks should understand that.... (haha)
  19. Congraulations on your !!!! Those are SO hard to come by over in my neck of the woods... I love 'em! Can't wait for those pics!
  20. Nice plan! Seems you have studied on your part. I remember when I changed mine... I was impatient and did it all in one sitting... I put my old grave in socks and let it soak in the aquarium for a few days after that... it worked. Anyways... barebotoms are real nice! Its always fun to see the process.... *hint hint*
  21. OH NO!!!! You poor thing... I hope things get better.
  22. Hi guys! I hope you remember me, but my name is Chris. I am kinda nervous to see what all has been happening, if somone could fill me in! I had work, musical, college prep, school, graduation, and quiting work to get a new job! No more Subway for me, I am a seasonal telemarketer now... the people you hate, lol. Enough about me, Id thought Id show some updated pictures of my fish! Not much has changed, but they have grown a tad, I will introduce them to each picture. WARNING::: LARGE PICTURES ::: This gold guy is named you... because I tried naming him but always ended up saying just "Hey you!" The fish below him is Cloud... This is a full body shot of cloud. Full body shot of You From top to bottom The little guy is Raidence and Gilbert. Despite all that has happened to my tank these past years he is the soul survivor of my first four... Nithher of them have body shots because they are extremely stubborn You may wonder about my old frog, Zipper... He died yesterday.... outside of the tank in the dogs mouth... The lid was closed, and personally, I am clueless on how either of those two could have pulled such a stunt.... but.. yeah...
  23. Your tank isnt all the way finished with its biological filtration. While this process takes place you need to do al least 2 water changes a week until you have enough bacteria to help with the cycle. It could take a couple months. I suggest you getting test strips, so you can test you water params regularly. Only with proper care and excellent water quality ill your fish get better. Keep us updated on your fish and how they are doing...
  24. How often are you replacing your water? I suggest you put a post in the diagnosis section and fill out evreything in the box.
