  1. Goldfish, Koi, and Ponds
    Hello again everyone! I'm really worried about my fish. I came home from school and he was resting in the "bedroom" part of the tank where he normally "sleeps". I sat down and watched him slowly "wake up," but within a minute of doing so, he immediately started to have what looked like a...

    Hello everyone! I'm rather new to the forums, so please bear with me. xP I just got two comet goldfish from Petco almost a week ago. Today is the first time that the water temp has reached 78+ degrees F since I got them. Is this okay for them or should it be cooler? If it should be cooler...

    Hey! Currently got a 55g long with four goldfish in it- black moor, fantail, shubunkin and comet (feeder fish) who are all under 4 inches at the moment. I love my goldies but it's a lot of work changing the water each week for them by hand, so I'm thinking of getting an above ground...

    Can shubunkins, gold fantails and common gold fish live together? Or will any two of them fight with each-other? I heard the shubunkins and common goldfish are fine together but what about the gold fantail? Any help is appreciated thanks!:fish:

    I have 5 goldfish in a 55 gallon tank. One of the youngest fish has developed bumps all over it's body. They appear to be pushing the scales up. The are the same color as the fish. The don't seem to be bothering him but it worries me. I'm worried it may be a parasite but none of the other fish...

    long story short I was stuck with a comet goldfish and I wanted to get it some friends( 2 fantails), after about 3 days one fantail was acting weird and getting bullied by the comet so I moved the comet to a 2 litter bottle with completely new water(that I declorinated). The next day the comet...

    Ok, so here's the thing, I got 5 sick goldfish and a broken tank...:confused: go figure... My friend (previous owner) got tired of cleaning the tank and gave it to me after it slipped and broke at the bottom. I got it resealed with silicone and now I use it for my red ear sliders. I placed the...

    I started my original posting under the Goldfish section before I realized there was a Diseases section, so here goes: I suspected ich in my goldfish tank (55g) three days ago and started them on Kordon's Rid Ich+ about two days ago (first treatment was Wednesday, 6/1). They've gone through two...

    I noticed today that my comet goldfish was sitting on the bottom of the tank, in the back corner, not really moving. His fins are clamped, and when he swims around, he seems lethargic and the fins are pressed tightly against his body. Checked my parameters and they all seem fine. Temperature is...

    So I recently got a secondhand 50 gallon all-glass fish tank, and so far there are no leaks or anything nasty like that. I have yet to cycle it, but I still can't decide what to get! :x At first I wanted goldfish , but now I'm thinking of a tropical tank instead. My water is very hard, and...

    Oh dear me, it's that humdedum again with her questions. ;) I just bought a secondhand aquarium and the person threw in a bunch of old airstones, filters and aquarium light reflectors (the light housing that you place on top of the actual hood). I have yet to test how they run, so I'll edit this...

    Hello! It's me again, except now I'm lurking in the coldwater section. :p So tomorrow I'll be purchasing a secondhand 50 gallon all-glass tank. Obviously it will take about...oh...three or so weeks for fishless cycling with some Cycle of other bacteria source. Luckily, the long wait of...

    Hello! :) I used to be a frequenter of FF until I got pretty busy, but now I'm back...with questions, naturally, lol. I have an empty 10 gallon. Think: empty tank. I've had it since I was eight (yeah, even the filter and heater YIKES) and I think I need to seriously revamp it. I'm planning to...

    Ok! as many of you know, I am fairly new in coming back to comet (the feeder kind) goldfish. I was given some in early december. The last time I had them before that was around 10 years. So! Are there any kind of small (VRY SMALL) critter that can be housed with comet goldfish that will clean...

    It all goes back to that darn ping-pong ball. If only it hadn't settled bouncing in the glass fish bowl. If only I hadn't wasted two crisp dollar bills to play the game. If only I hadn't seen the big red sign announcing you could "win a fish here!". If only I hadn't decided to go to the...
