I Found A Cute Goldie Toy!

Recommended Posts

My hubby was picking up some things at Home Depot (so I was bored silly) and I wandered off. I bought what I hoped to be a good goldie toy. It is a big PVC pipe corner piece. I thought maybe they would swim through it and they do!! It was hard to catch them in the act, mostly because they always think FOOD when I get near the tank. But I finally got some cute shots!

HA! Pretty fish!!!

I think I have used PVC pipes for "Alternative Uses" almost as much as I have used it for plumbing! They are great for cavies!

Oooh, I like that!! I'd need a 6" inner diameter for my biggest fish or else she'd probably get stuck.

We were just looking at those types of fittings yesterday while we were getting parts for our homemade canister filter. Maybe I can talk A Penguin into getting one!!

Thanks guys! I am gonna get some others & try 'em out too!

That fish is Hesshey! Remember Sorsha's post 'Diary of a fry" Hershey is one of the babies I got from that batch!!! His fins have turned out so pretty. They look like a paint brush was used to streak the color on!

I don't even have to go to HD for that - I have plenty of those laying around. STrange, never thought of them as toy, but yes. It'll add on to their "playground" quite a bit. :D

huh, now if i went out and bought something for just that reason they'd never use it, so i just make rock caves large enough for them to swim through, if they use it great, if not it's not like i paid for anything.

I put mine in yesterday and they seem to be afraid of it! They're playing "let's avoid the PVC pipe!"

It's funny with goldfish, isn't it? You put something in there that's big enough for them, and they shy from it. But if you put in an ornament that you think is IMPOSSIBLY SMALL, they somehow find a way to get themselves stuck!

Just leave it in there, their curiosity will get the best of them! I didn't see them get in it right away. Then I started to noticed stray gravel IN the tube! (I knew they were giving in!) No there seems to be one of them hanging in there OR at least one or two passing thru all the time!
