Here you go!



I cant remember how big theses guys where when i got them, but im betting they were small, less than half the size of them now.

I went to petsmart and looked at the large fancies there...they want 30 dollars for them and they are half the size of mine!! I was amazed!

New fry =]

Hatched on Saturday, kept in a netted breeder box and fed egg yolk. Just moved to large marina breeder box today. I'm also setting up a brine shrimp hatchery too to feed them. I'm keeping them on my evolve 8. The water parameter are excellent in this tank and don't fluctuate like in my goldfish tank.

Can you give a link to the page on kokos that had build details? Or am I readin that wrong and you were given a pre-built filter made by kokos? In any case I love the 'riparium'-esk-ness of you goldfish tank, esoecislly the sensory planted filter in the middle. What do you use to light those plants?

Plants in the tank are lit by a DBP double t5 fixture.
The plants in the filter are lit by a cfl bulb in a shop fixture from Walmart.

I'll try to find the link for you, I built it but the idea and build came from shakaho a member on kokos.

I love mermaids, need to find one for my tank. That's a decoration no one could complain about, she'd fit right in.
Good luck on the fry!

Just saw your mermaid. Meg did a beautiful job. Isn't great to have a bit of fantasy with the goldfish?

Fry are doing well, I have had bad luck with hatching brine shrimp but they are still eating up the egg yolk!
