  1. IMO, it is not possible to get rid of algae 100%. If you don't want brown, you have to raise the light watting and have 8 hours lighting period. Brown algae means it does not get enough light. But if you raise the light watting, you will see green algae.
  2. Please take a look at those link first http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/...c=60815&hl= http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/...showtopic=39607 Then we can continue if you have anymore question. Welcome to green water setup BTW

  4. That's a nice one, Fred. Buy it! I have doubt on its tail
  5. It is possible to jump start the cycle by transferring media from old filter. But you should see some nitrite(mini bump) and some nitrate though.
  6. Don't worry too much about black color. Thai black ranchu has a good reputation for keeping their blackness. I hope it will keep the color for the rest of its life.
  7. The max I have spent for a single goldfish is $400. Usually around $120-180.
  8. It is good to have one since it will eliminate a lot of parasite and free floating algae from your tank. But it is not necessary to have one if your tank ecology is balance enough. I have one but I am not using it unless I see ick.
  9. I got a few from Tommy. Shipping is good; he pack the fish very well. For quality you have to be careful. Sometime you don't see some fault in the pic.
  10. I agree with fishguy. Adequate space is necessary for goldfish. In planted tank world, a lot of people like light from http://ahsupply.com/ Check it out.
  11. Like I said, it's very beautiful. I would get it ASAP
  12. How big is the bucket? I would provide enough space for QT tank. Fish gets stress in shipping process to LFS and LFS crowded tank. If we put the fish in the small container(bucket) when it gets home, fish will get additional stress. Stress is a big trigger to cause all disease/parasite such as ick. That's why I usually put in the big containet(rubbermaid) for qt process. Fluke symptom includes bottom sitting and scratching (once in every 15 mins?) It's no harm to put Prazi during QT process. But the fish was in Prazi for one week already so I wouldn't put Prazi in anymore.
  13. I miss the whole thing since I was concentrating on eating yesterday and blackfriday shopping this morning.
  14. If the fish has ick, you have to treat it using appropriate salt amount until recover. This is the whole point of qt-ing new fish and treat whatever disease which comes with it. Don't worry about over qt-ing. Do not use prazi if you don't see fluke symptom.
