  1. My pH and buffering are really low according to my strips. Will baking soda help for both problems?
  2. I'm so sorry he didn't make it...
  3. Mine start chasing when I do a water change. I wonder if my temps are off? I've heard that warmer water triggers spawning. I would prefer that mine wouldn't spawn either, I don't have another tank to put eggs, and everytime they do, they dig up every plant in the tank! <_<

    It does take a while for fins to heal sometimes. I know how you feel though, I get upset anytime one of my little guys (bettas or goldfish) gets sick. I'm glad to hear that he looked better today!
  5. In the past I have used filter media from a healthy tank to jumpstart cycling. I don't know if that helps, but I wish you the best of luck with your little guy!

    I'm sorry to hear about your betta Kissy! I had a little jumper once too, he somehow had gotten out of his tank and onto the carpet! He was fine though after a couple of days. Is Orchard's tail looking any better? Sounds like he is getting excellent care!
  7. Awww! What a little cutie! Congratulations!
  8. I'm glad I found this! I have three males and one female ( ) in a 55 gallon, she is black moorish, and my male black moor chases the poor thing constantly! She had laid eggs a couple of times but as I have nowhere to put them, I just let them eat them. Most of the time they look fuzzy, and I'm glad to know that means they are unfertile. I would love to try to raise goldfish, but like I said, I don't have another tank. I thought about moving her, but now that I read she could lay eggs anyway, does anyone think I should worry about that? Good luck Angie with your fish!
  9. Wow! That's a great article BuddyHolly! Very informative. 2commons, I think it's great the way you taught those kids, I wish more people would teach children (and adults for that matter) how to properly care for goldfish. I think it's sad how few people actually take the time to research the topic before buying fish and then they die due to lack of care. Kudos to you! Good luck with your essay Dory! I think it's a great topic, I hope you get an A+!
  10. What would be the farthest distance you could safely ship? Just curious.
  11. That's so true touchofsky! Bettas (and goldfish too) just have ways of stealing your heart away! I like the thought of our bettas eating all those yummy treats! I know my little guys loved the food. Except bloodworms of course! Carlito hated them, which I've always heard they are supposed to love them. Bettas just have so much personality!
  12. I'm so sorry to hear that Anette! Like everyone else has said, it's never easy to lose one of our little friends. Our thoughts are with you and Timmy.
  13. I hope you get that tank room someday, Andrea! That would be so cool to have!
  14. I'm so sorry to hear about your little guy, Jessica! I know how hard it is, even if you know it's coming. I recently lost both of my oldest, two months apart. I'm sure my little Carlito and Vincent are showing your friend around, and they will never be old or in pain again.
  15. Thank you Kissy! You're the first one that's ever said anything about it. I love butterflies! You are correct about the tank, I want that one sooo bad! I think to myself... "that's three more fish!"
