Nice I like that. Sometimes it's a huge hassle just to get everything set up and before you know it, you'll have 7 tanks all over the place.
Good luck. I hope one little bugger survives.

I plan to let nature take its course.
I thought about setting up a ten gallon for fry but decided against it, i dont have time to devote extra time to an additional tank.
If the fry make it that will be amazing =]
But i dont have room for more goldfish and i could probably manage to keep one but not anymore....my current goldfish are huge 5.5 and 5 inches not including tails and they weigh a ton, the last time i weighed then they were 211g and 160g!

That's awesome. Any plans of hatching the eggs?

Havent updated on this tank in a looong time.
Everything has changed!
Heres what it looks like now.
I got rid of the dirt in this tank, it was not working well with my goldfish.
I planted the plants in tank planters from riparium supply, so far they are working good =]
The sub is eco complete and TMS, i chose them because i liked them.
I built a regular upflow biofilter and planted the top of it with bamboo, pothos, elephant ear and some wandering jew. I am just now starting to see a reduction in my nitrates, which was my goal in implementing/building this filter.
So due to the decrease in nitrates and increase in overall health of my tank, i came home to a tank filled with hundreds of goldfish eggs Wednesday night =]
Never in the six years that i have had these two goldfish have i ever had this happen and it is a wonderful sign that i am reaching my goal of stable and healthy environment.
This one has a fishy in it!!!
Most of them are not fertilized, but some are!!

I wish i thought that!
I have dirt particles that sit on top of the sand....

|stonevs||You're sand is really clean looking! Nice job.|

|xjasminex||I know, that would be great! Mine only eat plants when I don't feed them regularly, that's why I have the automatic feeder, it seems to work pretty good too!|

Ha ha...a jungle. Too funny.
I just moved my crew into a 120g and I have no regrets even thought the tank is HUGE.
I've been very lucky my guys don't eat plants, except for crypts. I wish I knew why they leave plants alone. I could bottle it and sell it to goldfish keepers.

Doing well, they seem to be getting bigger day by day...and not a day goes by that I don't want to get them a bigger tank!
When and if I ever move out of my parents house I plan to get a bigger tank and plant it full of plants and let it turn into a jungle before I put them in!
I'm also looking into a plastic mesh I can use to separate the dirt layer from the sand layer...I always seem to have an issue with fine dirt particles sifting up and hanging out on top of the sand... I wonder if a dirt then small gravel then sand layer would help too...

|Sajacobs||It's a big difference in nitrates. How are your Goldies?|
|07-21-2013 01:47 AM|
|xjasminex||Yea, it's not as easy as I was hoping, but I think it's a bit better.|
|07-20-2013 09:30 PM|
|Sajacobs||Pics would be great. It sort of sounds like its still hard to tell the difference between the levels of nitrates.|

Finally used the new sera nitate test kit.
I do believe that it is a little easier to read.
I compared it to my API...before the water change the sera kit said my nitrates were about 30-35...My API kit said it was in the 40-80 range...so big jump....
Sam, if you want i can take pics and post them too!
