New Fish! + New tank!

Recommended Posts

I am so excited! I had the best deals for fish this week it seems like. I bought an Aquaclear 50 and used filter media from my cycled tank and got a ten gal quarantine. My LFS has an employee who is very goldfish savvy and he knew that since I stared my hobby I have been looking for a black ranchu, well he ordered one for me! I think it is a girl and I LOVE her!! I named her Pearl after The Black Pearl, and the whale on Spongebob. She is huge! The biggest fish I have ever owned. That was all on Tuesday. Today...I got a 29 gal with lid and light, with stand, 2 air pumps, a penguin 300 filter and filter replacements, all for $50!!!!! So my new girl is going to finish up her quarantine period in the 29 gal because she is cramped in the 10 gal. If all goes smoothly at the end of the month, Nugget my red lionchu will move in with her. I am so excited!!! I will post pics in the afternoon.

Congratulations! I can't wait to see the pics :)

Just still keep an eye on the parameters. Since you only use part of the other filter's media, you only have part of the required BBs. You will probably experience a cycle bump, so be prepared for extra water changes, which you should be doing during QT anyway :)

I love the few white/silver scales on this fish! I hope it stays like that :)

To me the white/silver scales look like old injury scales that healed, hopefully she stays pretty much black, but I like them too. :D
