Hello everyone! My ryukin lives in a 20 gallon long that is filtered and aerated, cycled, temp at 80F in summer months. I test the water every 2 days and everything looks pretty good- Ammonia: 0 Nitrites: 0 Nitrates: 10ppm. She eats very well, loves attention from her humans, and is constantly exploring. The only thing thats off is she seems to "faint" a lot. She'll be swimming along and then slow down and will stop moving her fins or body, just sort of float there for a few seconds. Then she takes off again and so on. She doesnt have any other signs of illness- everything is normal. What do you think could be wrong with her? Thanks so much!!
What equipment is mandatory for a healthy goldfish? I'm making a list so I can progressively purchase the items as I get paid. So far what I've got is; -30+ gallon aquarium -Bubbler (wand or ornament) -air pump -Filter (10x GPH, 2x the size) -heater (to keep temperature stable during winter and wc) -frozen bloodworms -veggies -1/2 good quality pellet foods Am I missing anything? I want my list to be completely complete and thoroughly thorough. As always, thanks for all the help!
So in my little town, there are really no good animal supply stores. I have yet to find one that supplies any kind of quality substrate. I haven't had a problem with my plants or with my goldies eating my plants. I have a microsword that I moved and I noticed it had branched out. I replanted it correctly in my new tank and I was wondering if it will begin to carpet? How can I help keep it healthy? I use Kent plant growth products. One that promotes healthy growth and another which is an Iron and Manganese supplement. Is there anything else I can do to help it out?
