  1. Hi there - I'm hoping this is the right place to post my topic. It seemed like the best place, but I'm not sure if it's correct. I've been thinking of changing my tank setup a bit - specifically from gravel to some larger rocks and maybe a few plants. My question is how do I clean the rocks adequately, so I won't be introducing anything nasty into the tank and I can be sure they're safe for the fish? I've seen a few places in the forum where the poster has scrubbed them with a toothbrush/etc, but what should I use to make sure all the germs/anything harmful, are/is gone? Thanks a million in advance for your help!
  2. This is something that a lot of people tend to ask about, so here's my take on it. First, clean your hands thoroughly. I typically use Dr. Bronners unscented castile soap or Seventh Generation unscented dish soap. Step 1: Spend time near the tank to get your fish used to your presence. Step 2: Get your goldfish used to your hands being in the tank. Step 3: Feed them by putting your food-filled hand in the water and making sure they see you drop the food. Let them eat it away from your hand. Step 4: Start holding the food in your hand while staying motionless. Let them come to you and investigate without moving your hand. Your goldfish will begin to eat from your hand! I've had some fish who have eaten from my hand since day one (mostly telescopes) and others who took months to eat from my hand (mostly ryukins). This method has worked for even the most skittish fish. The red fish in this video was so incredibly skittish when I first got her about 1 year ago, and now she will not stop nibbling my hands!
  3. Here are some videos I made demonstrating how to use photobucket to edit your signature. How to upload pictures from your computer to photobucket: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allownetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid4.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fy118%2Fsoy_mocha_latte%2FAnimals%2FHowtoupload.mp4" height="361" width="600"> (I saw Koko has one of these already, i'll post it anyways unless a mod wants to remove it) How to resize pictures that you want to use in a signature - Saving it as a copy1 <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allownetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid4.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fy118%2Fsoy_mocha_latte%2FAnimals%2FHowtoresize.mp4" height="361" width="600"> How to put pictures into your signature without messing up your original sized pictures <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allownetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid4.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fy118%2Fsoy_mocha_latte%2FAnimals%2FHowtomakesignature.mp4" height="361" width="600"> **Always save a copy of your picture to use in your signature!** If you don't you will resize every image you posted on the forum of the picture. Keep your pictures pristine! Hope this is helpful! Sometimes it is easier to see a visual of what you are doing than reading text. I know it is for me!
  4. Hello! I'm sure this has been asked many times before, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I was looking through D&D threads, and I noticed how many people's fish were suffering from dropsy! It's really sad, stressful, and difficult to treat. So...how can dropsy be prevented? I'm sure many others on this forum would love to know the answer to this question, if there in fact is one. I found this quote by Helen: is that all there is to it? so if we clean our filters regularly, keep the gravel/sand clean, and clean the glass regularly, our fish won't get dropsy? That couldn't be it, right? What do you think? -Mandie
  5. koko, i deleted all my entries in the new blog thing, i was becoming increasingly frustrated trying to work it out yet again. i deleted it. can you tell me if the option to keep the old blog will remain? it was much easier to just keep typing after the last message. if it's staying, i will add to it.. if not, i am quite happy to piff the blog thing all together.
  6. For anyone who has a planted tank, how do you disinfect anacharis? I only found out that after doing a 5% bleach solution to all the plants I purchased, the anacharis don't fair well. All of the leaves on the two bundles turned brown, and I can only assume the plant is dead. Whats a good way to make sure you kill bad bugs and bacteria on them?
