  4. As some of you might be aware, I have a thread in the 911 forum right now...my fishies are going through a rough streak but they're under treatment for flukes now and their tank is salted for nitrites! Thanks to everyone at Kokos for your wonderful and loving advice While Speckle has been in the QT for a break from the nitrogen cycle, she has learned an ADORABLE new habit! At first....I thought I was just making it up but....she has learned how to get my attention by making a noise! She blows a bubble and then pops it at the surface, making a little "click" noise. The QT is on my desk and she spends the day trying to get me to look at her while I do my schoolwork, and after she started making this noise I looked at her because I had no idea what she was doing!!!! Now she has figured out that noise = attention and she is doing it whenever she wants some love and I'm not "giving her enough." She's also learned to spit water at the tank top to make a noise.....that will be a joy when she's back in the main tank with no top. This fish is such a smartie!!! None of the others seem to learn as fast as she has. (as I write this....she "clicked" again!!!!) I wish I could post a video for you guys...she is just too cute. And this is unbelievable, I would understand if you were skeptical without video evidence! But I swear....as soon as I look at her she stops and swims little dances, then looks at me , then dances.
  5. Hi all! I have a question while I read up on good feeding practices. My 5 inch ryukin goes crazy for leafy lettuce. I've noticed that lately his poop...well, it's significant! Haha. They're huge strands, bright green, a few inches long and almost the width of a straw! I wonder if it's normal just because I haven't seen it before. Usually poops are very skinny and brown. They've been getting leafy lettuce for the last 2 months or so. I'm also never sure how much lettuce to give them. I love it because it keeps them away from my plants, but I'm afraid to give too much. They go nuts for it! They also get different food once a day, either flakes or pellets or brine shrimp.
  6. Hi all! I'm Kj and I'm SO thrilled to have found a forum full of people who are as obsessed with goldfish as I am. I need your suggestions, but first, some background: I have a 55 gallon tank that has been up for about 4 months. I have a 4 year old 3-inch red and white oranda (I think; he may be a red cap...) named Merlin and a 5-inch (or so) calico ryukin named Mike Doyle. I'm not sure Mike Doyle's age because he was a pretty recent rescue from my local fish store. I have had Merlin since he was a tiny chain store fishy. I also keep a couple of apple snails who don't seem to mind the aquarium salt (Marcia and Greg). Perhaps this link to view some photos would help: http://s1297.photobu...library/Fishies I would really appreciate some opinions from you all! I am looking to add a third (and probably final due to tank space) fancy to my family. Do you have any recommendations? I'm really pretty open to any goldie who looks different than Mike and Merlin. Thanks in advance for any and all replies!

    Hi everyone! It is very long since I posted something here, but I actually never made a goldfish blog.. So here it is! I'll start from the beginning, when I found out that goldfish don't fit in a 14 gallon tank and I started to do a LOT of water changes to keep my fish healthy When I found a secondhand 47 gallon fish tank, I immediately bought it, so my goldfish would have a happy home. This is a picture of my old 14 gallon tank The fish you see there is Watermelon, she has grown a lot since I put her in the 47 gallon Another picture of Watermelon.. As you can see, she stunted a lot when she was in the 14 gallon Her eyes are huge.. This is my old fish Baas. He was a ryukin (You wouldn't guess that from this picture, right? ) This is the 47 gallon tank On this picture it was still cycling, so there weren't any fish in it.. After three long weeks of cycling, Baas and Watermelon finally moved to the big tank! They look a little lost.. Baas and Watermelon were best friends and always were at eachothers side But a few months ago, Baas got really sick and couldn't eat anymore.. I tried everything I could, but he just couldn't eat and was getting thinner and thinner.. This is the photo of Baas where he's really beautiful. I really loved his colour and I hoped he would get really big.. Too bad that didn't happen This is how he looked when he was sick.. I put him down when he got really thin, he just wouldn't move anymore and was just sitting like this. It was really sad So, after that, Watermelon was alone in a big tank. She had grown a LOT After a week or so, I decided to buy a HQ ranchu. She's called Auri and looks like this: As you can see, Watermelon was super happy when she saw another fish. She raced through the tank and spawned eggs everywhere. So I had to clean the tank again Anyway, she was really happy. This is Auri, the ranchu I really like her, she's just so cute! Watermelon thinks she's a shark.. Her fin comes out of the water when I want to feed her And she tries to eat my fingers too.. Luckily she doesn't bite them off, it just tickles Auri eats out of my hand too, she is really tame and always start nibbling on my fingers when I put my hand in the tank Here she's eating a pea She really loves peas, lol. Watermelon likes them too, but she likes blood worms more. Watermelon literally pulls them out if my hand Well, I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I'm sorry for those with a poor internet connection, lol.
  8. So I decided to just make a slideshow with all the new photos since there are so many and I didn't feel like putting the watermark on and uploading each individual one. Plus I found a pretty song I wanted to use, so why not?! There's a link to the song in the description section of the video if you want to hear the whole thing. These photos were taken a few days ago; before I put the new decor in the tank.
  9. Hey guys! I posted in the welcome board the other day with a picture of my 3 fishies. I was told by PetSmart (only got one there...other two came from a local pet store) that Speckle (pictured below) was a calico ryukin. She's definitely calico, but her tail is a lot longer than any of the ryukins I've seen so far....she is starting to get the "hump" but hers isn't nearly as pronounced as Pickle's. So....what is she? Besides a mystery
  10. Hi everyone! First of all, wanted to say a big THANK YOU for making me feel so warmly welcomed here I love the community and everyone is so knowledgable and helpful! I'm writing today because my goldfish have started to change color. Nothing alarming - I read that this can happen a bit when they're babies. I would say mine are definitely under a year old, maybe even under 6mos. old. Buttons, my black moor, looks like he's starting to turn bronze. His belly scales are a shiny bronze, but he's getting some scales on his upper abdomen area that are bronze/metallic purple. They're really pretty, and his fins are totally normal (no rips, frays, holes, etc) and he isn't in distress. Is this normal? How long does it usually take them to change color? Speckle, my calico ryukin, has started to get some metallic silver scales where black spots used to be. Part of me wonders if the black wasn't just a burn healing, or maybe some other past injury/bruise, because the scale is like BRIGHT WHITE and shiny. It's just one right now but I can see others in the area that look like they're about to change. Neither fish has LOST scales, they just seem to be changing color. All of this happened in the past week or so. Is this good? Bad? Neither? What does it indicate, if anything? Thanks!
  11. took a vid a few days ago.. doesn't really show their excitement for a feed, but it's done and i felt like sharing just the same . pls excuse Mr Disabled's hoover moments.. he takes advantage of his disability at feeding time or shortly after and vacuums the floor.. because he can
  12. video is making changes.. but it's fully uploaded. will look different in about half an hour
  13. ok ok, yes, i have had a name change! loololololol... but not that you should really notice much, it only changed a little anyhow, some have requested in the past that i show my giants from above, best way to do that was to get the water level low to 15% capacity and climb in so, here we go:
  14. Yesterday I took some new photos of Clover, Callisto, Luca, and Felix in my 75 gallon tank. Here they are! This photo (below) is funny. The entire time there was Repashy gel food on this rock, Clover kept looking at it suspiciously and then swimming away. And now that the food is gone, he's finally picking at it. What a weirdo! They picked the Repashy rock clean! Luca swimming under Clover's tail. Luca looks like an alien life form on the surface of the moon in this photo! lolwut? "Maybe there's some food under the rock." -Clover Danger lurks... oh wait never mind, it's just Clover. What a creeper! lol Felix keeps trying to eat the plastic plant. Callisto is not the most graceful swimmer... "I'm ready for my glamor shots!" -Luca The end.
  15. i have taken a bunch of photos in these last few days and compiled them onto a youtube video please enjoy
  16. Now that Christmas is over, I've taken down all our Christmas decorations, including the aquarium ones! I put the fake bamboo plant back in the tank, and thought I would snap a few full-tank photos, since I haven't in a while. I've been cleaning the algae off all the surfaces except for the back glass pane, which is left for the nerites to clean. I must say, they don't do a very good job! I expected them to be better at cleaning up the algae, but that's okay. They're fun additions to the tank nevertheless. Plus a photo of my red spotted nerite traveling across the glass!
  17. My two little impulse buys are getting so big! Sharkie's back is already beginning to smooth out and orange peel is growing super fast. Sorry about some of grain and funky lighting. There isn't a light over this tank yet and despite my best efforts some tannins are still leaching from the diftwood. orangepeel! they literally never leave each others sides Sharkie's derpy dorsal. Another side shot of orange peel who is still wary of me, makes it hard to take pictures! "have you brought a offering of food?" Look at her kinky back smoothing out! Still unsure of what she's crossed with, although since putting on a little weight she looks a tad more ranchu-ish. "Not sure if I like you" And of course it wouldn't be a post without Kai! She has gotten taller yet again, especially compared to the picture in my sig. above shot! She'd look so lovely in a pond. Her head is slowly merging into her body more ERMAHGERD ALGAER Thanks for looking! c:
  18. Just some updated photos! Callisto showing off her tail! Trying to beat one-another to the imaginary food, lol. Clover top view. Callisto top view. Bumper boats! Tailgating... This is the wall they like to peck the algae off of. You can see the little bare spots from them pecking at it! El fin!
  19. So I finally decked out their tank to fit halloween coming up but I am silly and forgot to get a tank shot >_< I am really enjoying these lovelys and they still need names Thanks for looking
  20. I finally was able to get some ok macro shots of my little ones (: They are all in a 20 gallon going through some prazi treatments. Kiwi is my little Calico Pearlscale, she is super cute and I finally gave her a name (: She also likes to follow me around and is the least scared of my hands. Sunny is the baby Ranchu/Lionhead, I haven't sexed him but he is super cute, and I believe he is still going through a color change from his fry colors. I also don't know if he is a Lionchu or Ranchu, so he is my little wild card! Mushu is the little Ryukin, he is bigger than the other two, but he was hanging out at the top looking a little lethargic so I thought he could use a little time in QT. Ignore the dirtiness of the glass, I haven't been keeping up with cleaning it ): I thought this pic was kinda cool :3
  21. These guys are too cute P.S sorry for bad quality forgot to put it in HD

  24. I haven't taken any decent quality pics of Kai since I moved in to college so here are a few shots! Most are fairly boring and look the same but she was eating as it was the only way for her to stay still. Sorry about the watermarks but after having a few pictures stolen I don't want to take any chances, I tried to make them pretty at least. I'm pretty please with how Kai is growing, I'm hoping she'll develop more of a hump still, but she's getting quite the gut! Jazz hands~ Looking a bit more ryukin-ish perhaps? I absolutely love how she looks when viewed from above, she thought I was going to feed her. oh no! And here are three different shots illustrating movement of the mouth! Thanks for looking!
