    Putting ceramic media on top of sponge filter?

    A few months ago I got a Tidal 75 but my goldfish like to sift through the fine sand everyday and whenever sand gets into the filter it's very, very loud. It's making me go insane I think. I'm thinking about getting a giant sponge filter to go along side my other sponge filter. I was wondering...

    Fins not growing back on ranchu goldfish

    I got 2 ranchus shipped to me on June 9th, they were in the bag 24 hrs. One of them came with chunks missing from the pelvic and analfins. I did a 0.3% salt treatment for 3 weeks along with 25-50% water changes every other day. The fins still have not healed back up and I don't know what to do...

    New ranchu with white spots, ich/fungus?

    Thanks for the reply. I added 8 tablespoons to my 40g as that seemed to be the general amount I could find on other goldfish forums. Should I add more? I'm also genuinely curious as to why 80f is recommended if i'm not using heat to kill ich? Will they not mind the 80f to increase the life...

    Pleas help tank is leaking.

    I'd just throw it out. You can also get a rubbermaid container for the fish. You can get a much bigger container cheaper than a tank (at least where I live) while you repair or replace your glass one.

    Do you think it's leaking from the top or bottom? Top I would say to lower water level and see what happens? I'd get stuff ready to move your fish though.. you never know when it will burst now.

    Substrate for goldfish

    When I was 10, I kept a goldfish with gravel. One day I had to take the fish out and use tweezers to get the piece of gravel out of it's throat. Great times. Sand is very safe and they can ingest it, no harm done!

    What ranchu should I get?

    I added a 3rd one as well; i'm not sure if you saw that before I edited it. The orange and black spots on the first one gives me a Halloween vibe.

    What ranchu should I get?

    I agree that the form looked a little different. Regardless i'm glad that I picked the 2nd one, it's from a local goldfish breeder that has some pretty happy customers. Sooo... now another one. Which one would you guys pick? This one from the first post: This one.. Or this one?
