How many Goldfish


  1. New here and new to keeping goldfish. My dad and brother have always been in the fish hobby. Dad loves community tanks and brother has insane salt water aquariums! I recently decided it was my time to dive into the hobby as well and got a 40 gallon for two beautiful butterflies! i So please feel free to drown me with all kinds of advice and wisdom.
  2. So I have owned goldfish for over a year now and wanted to upgrade tanks. I got a much larger one, 60 gallons, and want to go to a lowish tech planted tank. I just had a few questions. One is when I cycle, do I do it with plants in or do the plants go in afterwards. Also, will plants do ok on fluorescent bulbs? I was hoping to use the ones that came with the tank. Lastly, does liquid CO2 work ok? At the moment I don't want to invest in a system and the plants I am looking at are not very high maintenance.
  3. Hello everyone! I am new to the Koko's Goldfish forums, but not new to goldfish anymore. So anyways, I've had these two new cute little fantails for 3 months now, and here's the thing... they still don't have names! It frustrates me to no end, because I love my little fish babies, and I want proper names to call them, but I have yet to find the perfect names! Haha, my husband is tickled pink about all this, and teases my indecisiveness, so I come to you good people of Koko's... please help me! Allow me to introduce them (as we have referred to them): The orange metallic is the bigger of the two, and definitely the more "chill" one He (yes, they are both boys, I'm 99% sure) is such a cutie and likes posing for the camera a lot more than the calico. Speaking of the calico, he is a super inquisitive little guy, and the first one to come nibble my hand when I'm working in the tank. His coloring also really makes me smile one of his gill plates is translucent, the other is metallic white, and he's got one little metallic orange scale in the middle of the black stripe on his side. I'd really like to have names that suit each other, but at this point I just really want some fitting names! My husband and I are big fans of comics, anime, and literature (yes, it's a nerdy household here), so if it ties into something like that, even better! They are such sweet little guys, and they hang out together all the time Thank you all in advance for any help naming these little guys!
  4. Hello everyone! I am obviously posting in this thread because I am NEW! I currently reside in North Carolina. Born and raised here in a small mountain town and have recently moved to central North Carolina in a large city! You can learn a little more in detail about me on my profile. You can find me on instagram as therealhuesofgold right now but I will be soon creating a blog and video blog series on youtube! So keep a lookout for that if you are into that sort of thing! This is my adventure back into keeping goldfish, and I want to document all of it! Stop by and say hello!
  5. Hi everyone I decided to get a couple of goldfish after about 6 yrs with no goldfish, yay! It did start with a bit of a compulsive buy of a $2.50 fantail and then quickly became 3 when a week later, decided I'd like to get orandas. I bought two orandas online from livefish.com.au and am very happy. I went with a blue and a calico oranda. It was an awesome surprise to see what the colours were like when they arrived!! Love them! Of course I'm getting all up to date with the latest goldfish care and news. Very helpful, thank you all????????
  6. Hi all, I used to be a frequenter on this site but I have not owned goldfish in years. Suddenly today I rescued three goldfish living in terrible living conditions ( In bags with a previously lived in 10 gallon tank, no filter, never been cleaned, etc) So far I have done a 100% water change and cleaned the sides of the tank but left the the rocks in the bottom of the tank which will hopefully help maintain the tank's nitrogen cycle and put an aerator and a filter for a 30 gallon tank in. Is that ok? and then probably like 90% water changes every two days? I have a 20 gallon but I am trying to get at least a 40 gallon to transfer them into as soon as i can set up the nitrogen cycle. I have found myself frantically trying to remember everything about goldfish and I would really appreciate some advice on what to do next. The fish themselves look really healthy, their fins are in excellent condition and they are very energetic. They even appear to be closely bonded. I used tetra aquasafe plus to treat the water because it is what they had at the petstore and the food they came with. I figure it is best not to switch right away, even if it is something higher quality. Any brand recs would be greatly appreciated. Can you still buy pro gold?
  7. Hi All!! I finally got some new fishies!! I couldn't find the fish I wanted at the LFS in my area so ended up ordering online. I went for non-show/breed quality fish so that meant I didn't get to pick the ones I wanted, I just got to decide on the breed and colour. I also mentioned in another post that I had ordered a regular red and white pearlscale but instead got a calico crowned pearlscale. I was dissapointed at first I'll admit, but she's a tiny ball of attitude and I'm keeping her! Since my husband is probably tired of me going on about them I thought I'd share . To be honest I wasn't enthusiastic about ordering fish online, particularly ones I hadn't seen yet, but after watching some unboxing video's it allayed some of my fears. I ordered from Star FIsheries. I must say they arrived healthy but I was very unimpressed with the way they were boxed up. They were all in one big bag that was blown up with air and that's it - no packaging whatsoever and not much water. They were all rolling around in that one bag, with the bag rolling around in an overly big box with no packaging or cushioning all the way here. Ontop of that the courier was late, arriving late afternoon rather than in the morning. I know that they are not 'prize' goldfish but these are living creatures not a bloody bag of potatoes . Needless to say they have been extremely skittish, it's taken them a week to settle and stop fighting each other, even after doing the whole dark room with a towel over the QT tub. At one point I had to seperate them for two days and then reintroduce them when they were less stressed. Thankfully now they seem okay with each other and are coming up to beg for their food . On the plus side they seem healthy and are very active cute little fishies! They are all between 2-3 inches, a little older than I prefer but since they will be going in the big tank with my other goldfish I didn't want them to be too small either. I managed to get some pictures tonight while I was checking them over. I'm terrible at taking photographs and they just wouldn't stay still - so please excuse the quality. I added the extra one of Munch so you can see how fat he is
  8. I stared at this blank box for five minutes as I figured what to write without sounding really awkward and lame. I gave up and just started writing... Hello, nice to meet you all. I joined a few days ago and have been lurking since. I'm excited to join in because from what I've read so far you're all really lovely! I'm completely new to fish keeping and goldfishes. We had a huge tank when I was younger, but I only have a vague remembrance of it. I think it was a tropical tank. There was at least a dozen small fishes in there (no idea what.) and I named them all after the spice girls...yeah. There was also a sucker fish in there who was a cool dude. I remember his name was *drumroll* Mr Sucker... ... I was a very imaginative child. My dad got ride of the tank. I don 't remember why, but we never had anymore fish and I never had the desire for one either. Fast forward to aged 22. I can’t say for sure where the idea that I’d like to have a pet fish came from. I’d been entertaining it for a few months, but it was only ever a passing thought, not even worth doing research on fish…unfortunately. Then one day, I decided I’m going to get a fish! I did the bare minimum research before zooming off to the pet shop. I bought a tank that came with a filter and the pet shop told me to leave it for 24 hours then I’d be able to get a fish. (I know fish cycle! Bare with me…) So next day I fetched my goldfish, a gorgeous fantail who I named Goldeen. And after a rather traumatic bus ride, (for both of us!), we arrived home. I knew enough to allow the bag to adjust to the same temperature and added water from the tank to the bag while this was happening I decided to do some more research on my new pet wherein I discovered the fist cycle… Bit late now. So, I had no choice but to do the cycle with her in the tank. Luckily, Goldeen is a trouper and I was very careful to check the water quality and do regular water changes. She had no problems through the process. It's been three months now and she's doing fine. Now I'm going to put up lots of pictures so you'll forgive me for my newbie error. I've learnt my lesson and will always research, research, research! Despite the grumpy face in the picture Goldeen is really friendly. These pictures were taken on the day I brought her home 13/6/14. She loves cucumbers, hates peas, likes to tease the cat and bully the dog and makes it her life mission to get stuck behind things whenever possible. I'm hoping to get her a friend in a few months. I'm torn between getting a black moor or another fantail! Look forward to talking to you all!
  9. I had a three goldfish in my 20 gallon tank and they all started dying, one by one about a week after I got them. I now have a panda telescope eye goldfish and an ivory mystery snail in there.

  10. Finally bought a new 53 gallons tank for my goldies, love all the happy faces. Sadly my black moor couldn't make it, she passed away 2 days ago due to SB . But I'm glad that the others are fine. Bad camera *sigh. _The Video: _The Photos:
  11. Finally I got my first aquarium light, I'm happy, my fish are happy Well Mr.Ryukin moves a lot I couldn't take a photo of him. This time with captions "One photo only and make it quick" "No more" "That tail.." "Mirror mirror on the wall" "Part time job - model" "I will destroy this plant muahhahaha" "Calling all the plant destroyers" "What are you looking at ?" "FABULOUS" "Our home"
  12. Hello everybody! My name is Andee and live in Szeged, Hungary. I have a 25 L aquarium with a 9 cm long calico goldfish. I do not know the sex of the fish, but I really think it's a boy. We named him Katsumi. He is our FIRST goldfish!!! He lives in our aquarium about 8 months with a Yamato shrimp (Mr. Yamamoto Yamato) . We didn't know that a goldfish needs big space when we bought him. Now I know. A friend offered me a 100 L aquarium which I accepted, but unfortunately there is no place for it in our flat yet. So I am waiting to receive advices, suggestions about keeping this beauty in a good condition and want him to be aside of us as long as possible. We want him to be happy. Feeding: cucumber , peas and flakes, granules containing spirulina. Doesn't liked the salad. I will try broccoli and zucchini soon. Water change: 1/3 twice a week. There is a big, no a huge anubia in the tank, no other living (or fake) plant. Thanks for the attention!
  13. Been a long time since I've posted, my Ryukin, Yamato has been doing really well, he's about a year and a half old now. Sadly he's been plagued by floating issues so I have had to keep him on a strict blanched peas diet. Anyways, I figured it would cheer him up to have a buddy in the tank with him, so I purchased and quarantined a beautiful Black Moor who I just introduced to the tank yesterday. The Black Moor, Othello, made himself right at home but almost immediately began chasing Yamato all over the tank. Yamato swam away with great speed at first but over the past day has gotten more and more apathetic about the whole thing and Othello now spends his time headbutting Yamato. I was really confused at first why the new fish would show this kind of aggression towards the established fish, especially since Yamato is larger, but then in dawned on me: THIS WAS MATING BEHAVIOR Yamato might be a female...whoops So I guess I'll just let nature take it's course and hope that maybe if Yamato lays some eggs it may help with HER floating issues a bit. My one concern that I wanted to bring up for discussion (and something I haven't found a straight answer to so far), how do male and female goldfish get along when they're not breeding? Can they coexist happily in a tank? Does this chasing behavior happen year-round? I don't want Yamato to be harrassed everyday all day for the rest of her breeding life so I'm hoping this only happens at certain times of the year. Also, is there anything that can be done to discourage breeding season, like raising water temp, etc? Thanks in advance for your insight!
  14. Hello everyone. I've been keeping fish and planted tanks for years. After dreaming of it for a long time I've finally gotten my dream 150-gallon tank and I plant on putting 3 goldies in it. I've wanted goldies for years but never had the tank space. I'm still trying to decide what types, but I'm leaning towards ranchus or orandas. I'd like three of the same, but I suspect I'll be unable to make up my mind and end up with both. Looking forward to joining in.
  15. So I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I'm in NC, US and I currently only have 1 telescope/moor goldfish. I have always had telescopes, I lost my last pair after a water change and then moved so it's been about 6 months, until yesterday. I'm a dog groomer at Petco, and a woman came in with a large (4") orange moor in a baggy. He had grown too large for her (2.5 gal!) tank, and wanted to surrender him. He is now settling happily in my 10 gal with some wisteria and cardamine. I used Prime to treat the water because I didn't have the forewarning to cycle my setup. I have a whisper 10i filter. I need some serious upgrades, eventually I will get something larger but for now it's small and simple. I've learned a lot reading on this forum for the past few months and finally just decided to join. I'll post pics soon.
  16. Hello All! I just joined KokosGoldfish.com and am super excited to get active in the forums and learn a lot more about the fantastic opportunities that come with keeping goldfish. I've kept Koi, Shubunkins, Fantails, Orandas, and Ryukins. Currently, I have two Ryukins. A red and white one named Mufasa who is 8 inches long. His buddy is Simba, who is all orange and is about 6 inches long. They are currently housed in a 37 gallon tank. Thanks for taking the time to visit!
  17. Hi! I'm new to Koko's, just thought I would drop in and make my first post. I recently bought 2 cute little pearlscale/"ping pong" goldfish at Animal House a couple of weeks ago now. I added them to my 10 gallon tank which I had let sit for three days with pebbles in the bottom and an Aqueon QuietFlow20 filter. And yes, I realize after researching and coming across Koko'sgoldfish, that the 10 gallon tank isn't big enough for two fish. After learning a LOT about how to take care of goldfish, I realised I needed to be doing a lot of work and being diligent in caring for my new pets. I started doing water changes every day, and went out and bought the API Master test kit, as well as an air pump, air stone and clear hose. I also picked up a bottle of Seacham Prime, which I have been hearing a lot of recommendations for. (I had used my brother's bottle of a different water conditioner when I first added water to the tank). I learned about the nitrogen cycle and how important it is. When I was younger I used to think that filters were only used to suck up the fish waste from the tank and that's how the water became clear. Now I know better. I went back to the pet store and bought some ceramic filter media and floss. I was given a box of carbon filter cartridges from my brother, which now I won't be using (unless I need to remove medication from the tank in the future). Because my current tank is only 10 gal., and I am not prepared to purchase a brand new bigger tank with all the lighting, stand and everything else, I turned to Craigslist in search of a bigger, used tank to upgrade to. I bought a 40 gallon tank from a woman a few cities over, and it came with an Eheim canister filter (I'm not sure which one it is yet), a heater, some air pumps, hoses, gravel vacuum, the same test kit I have (lol, now I have two! yay!), bottles for co2 diffusion, food (including sinking pellets), carbon, salt, and a few other little bits and bobs. She even made a canopy and stand for it, though I wasn't able to take the stand because it didn't fit in the Suzuki. All for only 125$ Canadian! I'm so excited to get started on the new big tank! The only thing is that after spending lots of money on what I have now, I have to wait til I get paid a few more times before I can begin setting it up. First I'll need a good sturdy stand for it. My dad told me that for every gallon of water, you add ten pounds. So after it's filled and there is substrate/soil, maybe a log or two, plants, fish, and water... it will be well over 400 pounds...! Scary. After that, I'll need to think about what kind of substrate I want to put in. My plan is to create a sort of aquascape and plant the tank with tons of live plants. I know that goldfish nibble plants, but I think if I plant the right ones, they won't nibble as much. Then I'll need to buy some logs/roots/driftwood, probably Malaysian wood, and the plants, and will have to wait for them to get shipped to me. This project will be a lot of work. It will also be a lot of fun and I think it will be very worth it and will make my goldfish happy. Once they are in the new tank, I plan on perhaps using the 10 gal. as a quarantine tank. There are other bigger tanks around the house that would make good quarantine tanks as well. Any advice on qt tanks is appreciated, as I still don't know everything there is to know about them, like how to salt them and what medications are recommended and things like that. After that I can think about adding another fancy to their tank. So far I haven't had much difficulty keeping my fish. There was a day in the first week that I noticed one of them was a little floaty and would struggle a little to stay down. It wasn't severe but it was noticeable. I had heard that feeding them peas was a good way to fix this, so I looked on youtube and found out how to properly feed peas. After eating the peas (I fed them about 5 whole peas, which is probably a lot for their tiny bodies!), they pooped a LOT. I mean a lot. The poop was longer than their bodies there was so much of it (hahaha!). But almost immediately after finishing all of the peas, the fish that was floaty was completely back to normal! I was impressed and quite happy with the results. A couple of days ago I noticed the tank water had become quite murky. I'm still not sure why. I took a look at some of the forum posts here and decided to test the water and change as much of it as I could. The ammonia was very high, almost 8 ppm. I forgot to mention though, that I bought some of API's AmmoLock and have been doing as directed and adding 5mL of it every two days. So my little ones aren't suffering from ammonia poisoning. I checked the pH, which was around 7 - 7.2 and the nitrite, which was at .25 ppm. In a way I'm a little happy that there's nitrite. I know it's poisonous, but it means that the bacteria are growing and changing the ammonia to nitrite. After doing the tests I changed about 75% of the water. I decided, after I'd done the WC, to bust out the Eheim canister filter I'd bought and see if the extra filtration could help with the murkiness. After cleaning and setting up the Eheim, I changed another 75% of the water. The murkiness went down a little, but it's still slightly cloudy. I'm hoping the extra filtration will help but it could possibly be an algae bloom? Whatever it is, it isn't bothering my fish. They still swim up to me when I move near the tank and they still swim around happily and explore, looking for bits on the bottom in the pebbles. Anyway, thanks for reading such a long-winded post! If I have any other issues I'll post again. ~Ruby
  18. All right! Clemmy (Clementine) is out of QT and into the main tank. I'll be getting the 75 gallon soon and a canister filter, and then they'll be all set. For now, they're a little squished in the 30 gallon, but I'm keeping good track of the water parameters and they're all still pretty small. My plant is THRIVING on the nitrates! As you can see....they have decimated the anachris.... Enjoy! Speckle the photobomber! Pickle and Clemmy are racing... Clemmy is getting along just fine with the crowd! Rather good one of Buttons! They love hanging out in groups I liked this one! This one I think really shows the cloudiness in Mr. B's eyes...he's definitely sight-impaired, if not completely blind. She just LOVES the camera! Clemmy was adorable right when I first added him to the tank (yup...he's a boy, I'm pretty sure) kept swimming right next to all the others and copying EVERYTHING they did! It was like he was trying to find his "mommy" Cute!!!
  19. Well, I did the thing. The thing I have seen SO MANY here at Koko's do, and I have SWORN I would never do.....I got myself another fish. It was totally unplanned! I had wanted a tele if I got another, but love my 3 babies to death and can't wait till they get their bigger tank. But I went to petsmart today for supplies, and this poor little guy had a rock the size of his eyeball stuck in his mouth, and he was so obviously in pain and distress I made the store clerk take the rock out, and figured....hey, I have a spare 10 gallon....and I'll be getting my 75gal in 2 months! My mom just rolled her eyes at me when I got home. Without further ado, here's the little fella! I haven't decided on a name yet. His mouth is pretty screwed up by the looks of it, from the "rock incident." I was also wondering....he'll be in the 10gallon for 2 months unless I put him with my other guys. They're in a 30 gallon, so it's already overstocked, but the new guy is little and I'm getting plants for the big tank tomorrow. Feelings? It will only be really overstocked for a short time before they get to fish paradise land! I'll hopefully be moving into my permanent home August 1st.
  20. Hi I am new to keeping Goldfish very new about 2 1/2 weeks in. I have a 20 gallon tall tank and 3 small babies Black Moore, Calico Telescope and what I think is a Calico Ryukin (not sure). My son who is developmentally delayed always loved the fish tanks he saw in the doctor’s office and this fall he started school and they had a large tank in the main office every day he had to go look at that tank. One day he asked me if he could have a fish of his own I said if you’re good maybe Santa will bring u a fish of your own. He was trying his best to be super good so while he was away for holiday I went to petsmart and fell in love with the little black moors. I decided I would get him one and of course he needed friends. Asked the person working about keeping goldfish they handed me a pamphlet and pointed me towards the starter kits. I was told to let the tank run for 24 hours then I could come back and get fish. That’s what I did!! The fish seem happy but two days after I put them in my water became cloudy (I admit it I freaked out worried to the point where I would get up in the middle of the night to check on the fish) I have been doing regular water changes (about every 2 days) and I got another filter so I’m running a 110GPH(tetra ex 20) and a 200GPH ( aqueon quietflow 30) filter. By doing research online I’m learning a lot about cycling and cloudy water, keeping my babies happy and healthy. I am happy I found a place to go to when I have questions. I’m planning on upgrading my tank in about 2 months and I want one more fish. I plan on asking lots of questions so I can be ready when it’s time to upgrade : D my babies are still doing well they look good and are active and my son loves to watch them and help me do the water changes. I just wish I would have known about cycling so I could have avoided putting them in harm’s way!! sorry about the size of the pictures couldent figure out how to make them smaller top to bottom Plata, Zero, Yuki , the house m this silly little guy is PlataThe shy little ZeroThe Diva Yukitheir house after water change
  21. here he is he needs a name , so any suggestions he got rambos tank since he was smaller than rambo so rambo got moved to a bigger tank. i was in wally world and saw him again it was love at first swim so i grabbed him up he was the last viel there.
  22. Started my cycle today. Ammonia reading is at 4ppm (around what the article on fishless cycle said) Will test again tomorrow to see what changes
  23. Hi there! I'm a new member and really excited about this whole thing! I have two GF, both rescues! I love them with all my heart. Matilda, my one-eyed black moor was rescued from Petsmart. Oscar, my comet GF was resucued from the fair as a prize! ($10 To win him, :/ *sighh*) I am typing this on my IPad first gen. Does anyone know how to upload photos from the iPad or IPod touch 4h gen? I've heard some members mention "photobucket". What is that? Can I use it on my IPad? Thanks to all! *edit for typo*
  24. Ok. So I want to be very careful when I go and get my fish. I don't want to bring any disease into the new tank. What should I look for when getting new fish? Are local pet stores better than the big chains?
  25. Excuse my ignorance, but what's the process for introducing fish to an aquarium after the tank is done cycling? like from the petstore to the tank.
