  5. the 'macho men' of the 40 gal, junior (mains fish you can see), conrad, in the corner and lastly jet in the corner at the back (sorry about the quality!) and this is frank he's kinda on permanent (sp?) to me by a friend, he told me his name was frank so i just kept it, he's in my 150 gal (sorry he's small, had to resize him otherwise he would be waaay to big). lol, sorry about not getting the phoenixes yet, they're coming! i swear

OMG! erin, you just reminded me! i have a pic on my digi cam with both my phoenixes with they're mouth open and it looks like they're saying 'FOOD NOW!...please?' now what'd i do with that photobucket password And those phoenixes also you've never showed us those. Infact, u've never showed us any pics of ur pics other than one tiny pic of your black moor if i remember correctly. The time is nigh for proper, large sized, focused, beautiful fish pics of tropicana! the pressure! the pressure! lol, i'll try and get some pics of the WHOLE family
  8. lol! tha'ts a perfect name for him snailie the snail

  10. he was being sold as a black moor but has a bigger hump then the others, his belly is white and is almost a brown colour
  11. i've always wondered this, can a goldfish become stunted in a 2 ft tank?
  12. So today i bought some fish for my 150 gallon. I got a fantail and an oranda and a ryukin. The fantail is gold with a white tail the oranda is orange with black fins and wen and lastly the ryukin is white calico ( )
  13. The title of the movie should be "Attack of the Killer Ranchu" DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN! xD really, i love that tank, butis that plant real or fake?
  14. woo! go the clerk, the LFS i go to, when i first went in there, i had an hour long disscussion about goldfish with a clerk, she was very friendly and up to date, i think we're seeing alot of pet stores actually start to think about fish as pets.
  15. thanks for the great idea daryl!, next time i'm out in the shed i'll look for some bits of wood to put under there, my bedroom floor is tile so i don't have to worry about mould too much - but i'll still put the wood under
  16. so i purchased the rubbermaid, and after the initial 'those things can't hold fish!, you better not spil water everywhere, are you sure? you have hardly any room in your bedroom as it is! blake i'm sick of you and fish' from my mum, i think she's kinda ok with it, i filled it up and i've added some cycle booster (makes it cycle faster) and i set up the filtration so everything green to go!
  17. very much so cheekylemur, thank you for your response.
  18. So i'm thinking of buying a rubbermaid to use as a tank but i have a few questions first, i may not have anything to sit it on, except the floor, but i'm kinda nervous about putting fish on the ground, and also, i've been shoppign around looking for clear ones, but some i've found are like frosted, and i'm wondering does anyone use a clear one? ok LAST question, how do i convince my mum it's suitable as a tank, cause i know what she'll say 'you can't keep fish in those blah blah blah'
  19. check out that tail! i agree with you daryl when you say you love ryukins as much as phoenixes, i have to agree with you
  20. I'm almost positive both are comets =]
  21. maybe something more hardy like an oranda or lionhead or ranchu
  22. So i thought i might redesign my 50 gallon because it was looking a bit bland. So i bought everything (new gravel included) and redesigned. I drew a paint picture until i can get a pic. tank design
  23. So i was staying at my friends house who keeps a tropical and goldfish tank. Oe of his mothers goldfish nipped fins so their friend put it in their tropical tank with angels and other breeds of tropicals and they just let the fish nip the goldfishes fins. When i told their friend there's better ways to treat nipping fins he said 'i work at a pet store and this is the best why' when they put the goldie back he was very scared and stressed. It made me so angry seeing that poor fish suffer.
  24. you must be dissappointed about the greenhouses job gia, but aw well, glad to see you have a job you like better
