JohnEX nice tank! I still think it's crazy that people can keep goldfish from uprooting or eating every plant in a tank

and wow your tats are great looking. the colors are really nice!

Yeah that's nuts...color is crazy looking. I think The Planted Tank Forum should have a tattoo forum/section for everyone to show off their fish tats, if they have any. I was going to put a pic of mine up here, but I'm not trying to hijack the goldfish tank thread lol

xjasminex Thanks hedge_fund!
I'm a big fan of them too!

Thanks Andrew Goldfish, I would love to have a 125! I can't wait till the day comes that i can! I would only start out with one oranda or two, with dirted goldfish tanks it's good to understock and in a few months you will find another goldfish that you have to's a vicious cycle that most goldfish keepers experience. Most of us find ourselves more overstocked than we wanted to be...

In my case I never really fell into buy more goldfish but the fish that I have grew huge probably because I kept it limited to two in the fifty five...somedays I feel as if it's getting to small for them....

Growing plants ahead if time is a great idea, let them get rooted in and acclimate before the onslaught starts, lol.

Every fish has different taste...mine even ate anubias and most people say that it's a goldfish proof plant....mine even just ate the dwarf water lettuce that used to cover the's all gone now.

Good luck with your tank, you should create a journal and share I love reading other peoples experiences =]

Andrew Goldfish Great read. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I just started my 125 dirt planted goldfish tank, my first freshwater. I'll just be growing plants for a month or so before adding some small orandas. Hope they don't eat all the swords like yours did! Cheers.

xjasminex I use a liq fert made by a member on here. He doesn't add nitrate to it for me.
But if your going dirt osmocote is good and clay is also good. New dirt however shouldn't need ferts though, but adding clay is helpful for some plants.

Maybe your water lacks in certain minerals?
I also believe that having high nitrates slows down growth on plants in the tank too to some extent.

chelleomi Hey Jasmine, I'm wondering if you have any advice about what supplements you put in your tank. I know you don't add a "regular" one because you are trying to get rid of nitrates and don't need to add any more... I'm just trying to figure out why my plants never seem to grow...

xjasminex Pic of my favorite fry, heres to hoping that the rest of him forms nicely and his dorsal stays the same!

03-24-2014 02:37 PM
xjasminex Yea, it's it!
Some are darker/more goldish looking than others.
I can't wait to see the colors they will have.

Their mother had black spots when she was younger but it all disappeared. Now her tail has a black streak in it. It started coming in last year and is slowing getting bigger, from what I have read goldfish usually don't start turning black again...and I mentioned it on my goldfish forum and they said it must be a color change!
