    Best brand of food for goldfish?

    I've been using New Life Spectrum +A for my Goldies for about 2 years. Then mixed in NLS Goldfish Formula and NLS Algae Max. They are all fantastic food, they sink quick and very good in terms of their nutritional value. They are mostly krill or algae depending on what you get. The +A has more...

    Saved oscar fear its stunted an deformed

    The little guy looks a tad skinny. I'd say you should definitely fatten him up. What's you current feeding schedule, are you adding anything to it's water to help growth? You'll likely be able to prevent any further deformations if you put him in a larger tank by itself.

    Platy fry and filter

    You're welcome, best of luck to your fry. If that still doesn't work well enough you might want to look into a sponge filter, they are ideal for fry.

    Do i need an airstone?

    If you have a hood on the tank then I say yes you need a bubbler. There isn't as much surface area being exposed at all times so they need a bit more movement. My Goldfish tank doesn't but it's open air and has two canisters filters pointed at the surface so a bubbler doesn't seem necessary. If...

    Platy fry and filter

    Pick up some filter floss, cut it into a little rectangle and wrap it around the intake. Then secure it with a rubber band or a some string. It will prevent them from getting sucked in. As a bonus it will collect bacteria on it and you'll have a bit more beneficial bacteria in the tank

    Help, can not explain this excessive poo

    Your fish will love it if you do. Also keep a keen eye on craigslist, sometimes you can get a good deal. I picked up a 125 Gallon tonight with stand and lights. Initially he listed it for $250 but I came and picked it up and didn't hassle him at all about the price. It shocked him and he handed...

    Help, can not explain this excessive poo

    Welcome to fishlore Keep your questions coming, we're here to help. If it's a Common Pleco then that would be the reason for huge poops. Also they don't actually clean tanks, they sort of clean algae but they poop more than an elephant.

    The most unbelievable fail

    I doubt they lost money, as it's been pointed out it's probably just the distributor. I've talked to some petstores regarding fish like common goldfish, feeders and what not. They often just get a giant bag full of fish which can include some fancy varieties and other odd ball fish. The fish...

    How often should I change my filter

    You don't actually have to run Carbon at all. It can be useful for removing medicines from the water and it removes odors. However if you keep your tank water level up and keep up with water changes you shouldn't really smell much of anything with or without Carbon.

    EMERGENCY! Goldfish fin rot! HELP!

    You changed just the carbon right? Or did you change all the media?

    Dr. Tim's One and Only with ammonia question

    Nice tank, yeah a 75 gallon will take a bit of time. Definitely pick up the one and only, it's intended to be used with his Ammonia anyway. I couldn't speak to the overflows since i've never used them.

    Probably going to Euthanize my Goldie soon :(

    Gertrude is on her way to a full recovery She's almost completely back to normal. I think her gills were damaged at some point either from meds, parasites or the infection. She's gone through quite the debacle. Currently she goes to the surface and gasps after eating which causes bouncy...

    Important Do you believe me or your eyes?!

    The person at the store has been lucky and careless, you have been given poor advice. She was an idiot to be completely honest. She's just stressing a fish out by dropping it in another tank from a cup. Of course it's probably not going to attack, it's worried about dying. It is now in a tank...
