    Goldfish died suddenly

    Good news everyone!!! When I got home today he was swimming around happily. I really don’t know what happened as he was just sitting lifeless this morning. Maybe he was entering hibernation and when the sun came out in the Afternoon he warmed up a bit. Anyway a happy ending my goldie is fine .

    Goldfish died suddenly

    Nothing that I can think of. I’ve had the goldfish for around 6 months and nothing has changed that could leak into the pond. There is also water detoxifier in the pond to get rid of chlorine and Heavy metals. It is also only 1 goldfish effected the rest are behaving normally

    HI I have a small pond where I keep my 4 goldfish. This morning when I went out to feed them I noticed one just sitting completely still on the bottom of the pond tucked away in a corner.

    Dojo Loach In Pond Legal In Uk?

    I know they like to jump and can survive out of water for a long time. Will the net over my fish pond stop them from escaping?

    Goldfish Inactive

    So on Sunday I got 4 goldfish for my pond and they have been quite inactive since I added them. They normally just sit on the bottom of the pond or hide under the plants. I read this is normal for new fish but how long should they display this behaviour before I start to worry about them? There...

    Dojo Loach In Pond Legal In Uk?

    I got in touch with the government and they said it is legal but not recommended as they won’t survive the winter (Info from the OATA) But they survive harsher winters in other countries so I think they will be fine.

    How Many Kuhli Loach To Add?

    For a twenty gallon and just the betta I would recommend 6-10 kuhlis. If you put ten in that would probably be the tank about full whereas if you put 6 in you could maybe get a small school of harlequin rasboras or something similar. I use to have a 20 gallon with 1 betta, 6 kuhlis and 5...
