    Hi all! I recently started another foray into the live-culturing world of daphnia. I tried it when I first started the hobby, and couldn't stop crashing both cultures I was working on. What a mess! I think I was overfeeding, but that's all another matter. Anyway, my question is this: could I...

    Hi there! Hope everyone is safe, sane and well in these crazy times. I've just bought my first aquarium in years and I'm super excited to get cracking now - my husband and I have decided on fancy goldfish instead of tropical this time. I'm planning on doing a planted aquarium (have researched...

    One of my Sarasa Comets has been having swim bladder issues. I have placed them in a medbay tank for some days now and they have stopped floating to the surface, but now they are just sinking to the bottom. Last night thinking they were better I released them back into my main tank and they were...

    Recently I bought an angelfish for my 90 gallon tank to get rid of lice on my goldfish. The lice seems to be gone now and the angelfish is now nipping at the fins of my goldfish. I don't really know if there is a way to stop the aggression or if I will have to get rid of the angel, any tips?

    Hi all! Starting a journal on our new 150G planted livestock container I setup for wintering our goldfish and turtle. A little backstory, this summer we moved into a new house that came with a little pond and stream water feature. This worked out really nice as our turtle was starting to...

    Is it safe? I also have some Inca snails and large fancy goldfish in the same tank. They do not pick up and spit out the current gravel like past ones I had, but I imagine they will pick up some when feeding. Will this sand harm them in any way or is it safe. When I searched this question...

    So recently I "saved" a goldfish from a friend, he neglected the poor little thing and kept him in a 4 gallon tank for about 3 years, and I decided to take him into my 20 gallon tank. He has been doing better, swimming a lot more then what he was in the 4 gallon. But I have noticed that he has...

    Hi All, I usually stick one of my trusty comet buddies in a tank with snail issues and it "usually" works but since my CPD's are only 1" long (all full grown adults) about one plus years old I'm a little concerned that the Comet goldfish cause any problems with my CPD's. Not a lot, as far as I...

    I've had goldfish of all types and koi for over 10 years all in ponds. I knew what plants to use and not use. Now a year after a horrific run in with a raccoon I've moved my remaining comet, shubunkin and sarsasa indoors and then proceeded to plunge head first into the world of planted tanks...

    - Background - Hi everyone, let me start with a bit of background as to why I got started on this tank. I originally had a raised pond I built in the backyard early spring. It was just supposed to be a planted pond with various lilies and a water feature. A few weeks in, the pond is doing well...

    I have three goldfish one comet, one shubunkin and one sarasa in a 36 gal bow front aquarium, now with live plants. I had a major water quality issue about three months ago due to failing pumps combined with a section of gravel in the tank that I somehow failed to vacuum efficiently. This...

    Hello Planted Tank! It has been a while... a long while... My Black Moor goldfish had a leave stuck in it's mouth 5 days ago, I removed the leave easily without causing physical damage to the fish. But it appears that the leave was in there long enough to stress him because the next day I...

    Attaching a few pics of my attempt of a planted goldfish tank. I'd love to get people's opinions, as well as receive any suggestions to make the tank look better, bearing in mind it's not easy with a goldfish! I have a normal goldfish (non fancy), so needless to say he tears up or eats most...

    Hey guys so I decided to buy some feeder goldfish just for this little experiment. I've heard that gold fish basically eat anything and they are the worst for planted tanks. So, I decided to put this to the test. :icon_twis Information Tank: 30 Gallons -36 1/4 x 12 5/8 x 16 3/4 Filter: Fluval...
