I have a question for those who have like one, two. three or even four fishies.. HOW DO YOU RESIST MORE?! LMAO I am having such a hard time staying strong haha I saw a baby red capped with the littlest wen and he was sooo cutee! I swear he had like blue eyes!! Oh gosh I even went back but I lost out because he was gone.. UGH I am soo bad at resisting especially since I have to move my Ryukin and Fantail with the comets in the pond due to bullying the black moore babies which means I'll have room in my tank.. OI! And I know my babies have anchor worm but its going away fast and by the time any new comers are done QTing the anchor worm should defiantly be gone.. GOD! I AM BAAD! I need to stop this lmao I am a hopeless goldfish addict.. Oh gosh! And no matter where I go I always find atleast one breathtaking fishy and I only have one sweet Oranda even though they're my favorites.. Pearlies are cute too and I don't have any of them!

I resist because I know it's in the best interest of my babies. I also resist because I know that I could justify just getting another tank, but then I know that's more work than I'd really be willing to do. Which comes back down to doing what's best for the health of my babies I guess...... I'm sick of dead, dying and sick fish and taking care of hospital tanks! lol!

Resisting the goldfish bug is really hard. This is why I rarely frequent my LFS-- maybe only once every two months. I usually buy all my fish related stuff online, that way I don't run the risk of seeing any eye catching fish for sale. I tend to buy a ton of stuff at once, just in preparation so I don't have to go to my LFS for that "one thing" I need to get. I know it's really hard to resist. Good luck, when you catch yourself struggling with the temptation, just remember the rule of thumb and you'll be just fine! :)

You are too funny, Kayla! The "rule of thumb" I was referring to is that each fancy goldfish needs a minimum of 10 gallons of water and that each common (single tailed) goldfish needs 20 gallons in order to thrive. :)

I'm definately NOT the best person to ask! lol Seeing as I have 5 (soon to be 6) goldies! (And 5 Bettas, 4 minnows and a mouse)

Since my two girl mice are gone, I have a spare 10gal. So once it's done cycling Larry gets his own fish. It's his fish, but I feed it, change the water, decorate the tank, etc. :) So in about a month I'll have 6 goldies!

Give me one good reason why you should NOT go buy a new goldfish!

If she gets another, then she'll have to get another and another and another and another! Eventually she'll have to get a job to help pay the water bill and then she'll have more money to buy more tanks, BIGGER tanks and therefore -- MORE FISH!!! :happydance

:blink: Wait.... That's not a bad thing! lol

Dangg! lmao I just like the idea of having only a few pets to foccuss on though its been a while since it's been that simple. I think you have too many animals when you are so deep that your lacking care. That's all.

lol my friend offered me a 42 gallon tank she has had in her garage forever but my mom wouldnt let me supposedly because of "humidity" and because i have no room in my room..

so i told her she could have my computer, and i'd put the tank on my desk =]

but no luck yet =[

if it wasnt my mom holding me back...i'd already have a 42 gallon ready for 3/4 more goldies!!!!

you need to get more goldies for the people like me who cant (and post lots of pics)! :cry1:D:P

bahhh i cant wait to get to the second stage! but i must [impatiently] wait for awhile until that day finally comes.

Oranda's R HxC, i know the answer to your question! the only way to resist buying more fish is to NOT to ask people here on kokos! :rolleyes::rofl;)
