|xjasminex||Im sad to say that i had to put my goldfish down. Due to his probable kidney failure he continued to become edematous and was stating to develop blisters and was not swimming. He still wanted to eat but he must have been miserable.|

My wife wanted the white background to keep things bright as this is in our kitchen, but I think black would look much better.
I have to say though, it looked pretty darn cool when it was 1/3 full. I might have to get rid of the goldies and do a paludarium with it.
PS: Suction cups suck. I only had enough wire to make hangers for 3 of my baskets.

|xjasminex||So my old guy started with symptoms of dropsy on sept 7th. Treatment is water changes every two days with dosing of metroplex and epsom salt with every water change. Orally dosing oxytetracyline daily. He hasnt really gotten any worse or better. Although he is acting normally and is still eating good. No other symptoms noted except the pineconing.|

|xjasminex||Yea, those plants are all over!! He is just lately been actually swimming through them. I think the light has a lot to do with them being so awesome at growing. Plus i have an autodoser that doses a small dose of excel throughout the day. Plus i have the dirt substrate. I dont think ill have a dirt substrate in the 100g when ever i get to set that up. As you can see i have a lot of dirt and wood pieces that sifted up either by natural ways, due to current, snails or because of my boy. Im thinking i might do like a planter sorta thing.|

What were you feeding them, if you don't mind me asking?

|vanish||Well, I tried to follow your lead in a 90G. My goldfish ate EVERYTHING I put in the tank, including some very tough Anubias!|

Added a few new plants to the rip portion. My purple waffle is flowering! Plus I added spike grass from aqua aurora! And I also added Alocosia polly too.

|xjasminex||I pull the not so good looking ones/ older leaves/ algae riddled ones out to help with space. Something always needs pulling because they grow so fast!|
|04-19-2016 02:28 PM|
Do you pull plants out form in the tank to give more room or just trim off some leaves here and there?
|04-19-2016 02:25 AM|
He his doing well and the tank wont stop growing. He barely has room to swim!!
I have some algae issues, due to sunlight and my planted plus 24/7. I bought light raisers to raise it up 3.5 inches.
He also keeps digging up the sand in the middle of the tank and exposing clay and dirt....I think the circulation pump doesnt help either.
I have many rip plants that are out of control too. I just added purple waffle. I can go a whole week without changing the water. My fish tells me when its time to be changed, he gets moopy. However my nitrates always read 5-10ppms. Something that i have NEVER been able to accomplish before. =]
