My big goldies are big, lol.
I haven't measured or weighed them since the last time I posted their weights and lengths. Maybe I'll just do that when I move them back into the fifty five.

I'm unsure of my baby goldies though. Some are small and some are pretty big. I still need to photograph them!

Here's my fifty five now. I had a lot of melting and plant mass was reduced.

Glad to hair the original crew is good.

Hope the tank pops back with plants in a couple of weeks.

I stuck some extra wisteria cuttings in my tank with goldfish ... they ate every leaf.

PS: Where's the fish, I don't see them?

Yea, I see wisteria as a delicious snack for them.

The monsters are in a forty breeder. The plants need time to adjust, root and grow some before they start getting beat up!

Sword and crypts are the best for my goldfish. But they will eat awards if they are hungry.

I'm also rigging a toms aqua lifter to daily dose excel to help plant growth. I sick at dosing consistently. So that should help growth a lot.

Lol, yes Sam I wish it could! As long as I remember to feed them like the piggies they are then the plants don't get too beat up.

Hey! Thanks Tithra!

Now here are newer and closer up pics.









I'm probably about two weeks away from putting the goldies back in. They are going to be sooo happy they have been stick in the forty breeder for a very long time.

As you can see I also added more sand and them I added the other stones that I wanted in there too. I still need to clean the other river rocks and put them in too.

My big goldfish are back in their fifty five!

They are so happy. They were swimming against the current of the circulation pump!







Bis will join his parents sometime in the future...when he gets a little bit bigger =]

I also added two large mystery snails and two nerite snails yesterday. Hoping that the mystery snails are the kind that don't eat plants....
