About a year ago I bought a 3ft tank off of ebay.au and it came with 2 canister filters... an
Eheim 2213 and a Fluval 203. They've both done a great job, but I would have a heck of a
I've got mine in an 85 litre (approx 23 gal) tank with neon tetras and a betta. I give them lots of hiding spots... a rock pile, driftwood covered in java moss, driftwood with a tangle of roots from...

I've got a couple young males and a couple young females (as of yet, no tubercles visible) and they seem to do alright together. The guys don't seem to chase or harass the girls very much at...
You say he has a fungus all over him...... is it possibly just excess slime coat? Something irritating him maybe?
:) My point was that if you're going to add a heater, realize that additional water aggitation (increased dissolved oxygen) might be a good thing to do...... and why.... if not already being done.
Sorry, ran out of time to edit my previous post..... want to clarify:
I''m thinking that adding extra calcium via a cuttlefish bone might not keep the calcium level stable. Calcium is important...
Good luck with your goldfish!
Don't add any calcium for the snail. He'll be fine..... although the goldfish may see antennae as snacks. Messing with the water chemistry by adding calcium won't...
Although goldfish are called coldwater fish, they can take a wide range of temps, maintaining a consistent temp is what's most important. Lower temps will slow down their metabolism...... so for...
Males have "tubercles" on their gills and leading ray of their pectoral fins. Here's a site I quickly found that has a couple good photos of them.
About 3 weeks ago I got my 3 ft tank, filled it, and got the filters going. I've fed the empty tank
to get the ammonia going and after the first week or so started testing the water. I hadn't ...

Gave it a good scrubbing with a weak bleach & water solution, rinse rinse rinse, then dried in the sun. Goldie's won't get to see it until later in the week, so time for remnants of chlorine from the...

I wanted to have my goldfish in one this time last year, but I finally got a bigger tank for them!
I pick it up on Saturday, 2 days from now, and got it from eBay..... 3-foot tank, nice looking...

Hi everyone! Long time no see, hope all of you are well!
I have had a bit of a search for a good article/web site that explains how
stunting occurs in fish..... the more technical the better! ...
Hi Jelly's Mum!
Where in Oz are you? I'm a yank but moved to east gippsland in 2004.
I've got a calico ranchu very similar to yours, and a few other mates for him (her?)
And, as others have...
And my 6 neons are still going ok...... still never great, although at the present time they're as close to doing "great" as they've been for a long time. Actually, very pleased that one of them...

Just wondering if it's a neon thing, if cardinals would get this white fuzz as well. I've considered cardinals, but wouldn't want to have the same thing happen. I guess I could get maybe 2 of them,...

So, as I have read many, many accounts of white "funk" on neons that just can't seem to be eradicated...... I, too, have funky neons!
In my 85? litre tank, my clan of neons has dwindled in the...

The white spots of ich are actually the parasites themselves when burrowed into the fish..... so the spots aren't really a symptom of ich.
As has been mentioned, part of the life cycle of the...
I added 6 of them to my tank a few weeks ago! They're great! Proportionately to my tank size, I think I have a good deal of plant cover.... lot of low plants.... large chunk of java moss,...
Heck, I drive 2.5 hours round trip each week to do dog training at one of the 2 clubs I belong to! :) But, then again..... in Australia you find that things are so spread out that you HAVE to drive...
And g'day from even FURTHER down under.......... East Gippsland, Vic! Try to beat that, anyone! :) (not sure if anyone from Tasmania here.....)
I'm actually a transplant, though..... originally...
No for white clouds.....
Their temp requirements are around 55°F to 70°F, while a betta's temp requirements are around 76°F to 80°F.
Also no to goldfish (coldwater and major fin nippers), other...
Thanks for the info, mermaid.
Right now, my goldfish are about 2 1/2 to 3 inches, not quite big enough for a white cloud snack. I do have extra cover for them, though, with one of my plants...
Beautiful shepherds!! I love shepherds!
I miss my Kaiser boy :(
I like taking photos of my fish, as I think it's interesting to compare photos from when I first got them to photos as they grow....
So, I have lots of luck taking photos after they've...
