    I poisoned my fish!

    It is heartbreaking to lose fish, especially when it's something we did. I've been there and know how you feel. Like JW said, we learn from our mistakes. Best of luck with your fish:)

    best external pump

    2000 gallon pond with a Euro p 4000 gph external pump that is once again breaking. This is the second pump I've gotten that has busted. Same deal. Internal parts start rattling around and water stops flowing. I'm done with this product. The company I bought it from did send me the replacement...

    agressive koi

    Thanks guys. The koi are going outside once the water warms up. The big guy has always been clumsy but gentle. Last night was the first time I ever seen him act that way. I watched him during the morning feeding and he was fine. At night I always soak their food in garlic juice for health...

    agressive koi

    Hi guys. Hope your winter was good!! I'm glad it's spring though. Time to get the pond in order. Tonight I came home and found my green glo fish missing. He's been a loner since I got him about two months ago, but lately he's been hiding in the "house". I took the house out to see if he...

    tank advice

    Thanks Mitch, I did call envision acrylics. They do custom tanks and when I told him what I was looking for he suggested truvu or seaclear tanks.

    tank advice

    Hi all, I'm looking for advice on acrylic aquariums, particularly in finding a quality brand. I currently have a 65 gallon but don't know the make. The goal is a 100-125 gallon. I would like to find a LFS that sells them but in my area they are sparse. That means internet most likely but...

    Can any type goldfish live in a pond?

    He's my buddy and I would in no way even consider moving him till the pond and tank water temps matched. In fact after further consideration I couldn't Put him outside. He's too much family:)). He'll stay right where he is and I'm going to get another larger tank for salties!!

    Can any type goldfish live in a pond?

    Hi everyone. I'm in a quandary. I have a 65 gallon tank that I am probably going to make into a salt aquarium. My question is my goldfish, can he survive in a pond in zone 7? I'm assuming he's a common goldfish(see pic). I was thinking of moving him to a smaller tank and giving him a friend...

    Glofish with Ich?

    Hey Dave, yes Glofish were artificially made to detect pollutants in the environment. When they breed though that fluroscent gene is passed down. My info comes from glofish.com. that site should fill you in on this species. They are altered tetras and danos, so they do have scales. Albeit...

    Glofish with Ich?

    Dave, the med I'm using dose contain Malachite and formaldehyde4.26%. It's called Rid-Ich plus from Kordon. The girl was a little surprised a Tetra Glo got Ich but said that is the med she always recommends. I believe she has a Biology degree and is looking for a job but enjoys fish. I check...

    Glofish with Ich?

    Thanks John!! How'd you do it? Wow, I was hoping once the treatment was done and the fish moved out of QT, that letting the tank sit empty for a week or so would kill off the Ich in need of a host. I did get a med with malacite green. The girl at petsmart said all tanks contain ich? I would...

    Glofish with Ich?

    Hi all, I think my Glofish has Ich. I just put my heater back in tank and am going to slowly raise the temp up to 84-86. He's in a QT tank and has been there since I bought him New Year's Eve. The tank is 5 gal. I'm was wondering what meds to use and what to do to clean out the tank once he's...
