Fortunately I have never had any bloat with my fancies, I now use repashy soilent green, when you first buy it you think it's a bit expensive but a little powder makes a good amount of food! And it's much easier than mixing your own, and many experienced goldfish keepers claim that it is a more nutritionally complete food. Good luck with your own goldies!
Sam! Thanks again! This is day eight, and I haven't done a water change and I haven't checked nitrates...I have been working and my BF is in the hospital! My days have been going as follows...get up, go to work, go visit BF, go home, eat and sleep 6 hours get up and do it again...lol
I just started to get interested in koi clay, started to read an article on it...I also heard that it helps to clear the water...? Keep me updated with how it is going with your lawn mowers!
