    Will My Goldfish Get Bigger?

    so about a year and 4 months ago, I won a couple goldfish at a carnival. unbenownst to me at the time, my 20g was much too small for them. as soon as I learned that, I began searching for a larger tank.

    Filter Recommendations For 90g+

    My next tank is going to be between 90-120 gallons. It will be home to 2 common goldfish, with no plans to add any other fish. I really do not have any experience with anything other than HOB filters, but am not opposed to other kinds as long as they're easy to set up. What kind of filter would...

    Trace Ammonia? Can't Read Api Results...

    So until recently I have been using the tetra 5 in 1 strips to test nitrate, nitrite, gh, kh, and ph. The 5 in 1 doesn't test for ammonia so I had purchased a separate ammonia test strip kit (jungle). After my tanks finished cycling, I was consistently getting a 0ppm result on the ammonia test...

    Reply To Pm

    I realize there is a rule that you have to have 50 posts before initiating a private message. However someone private messaged ME and I have no way to reply to this person due to the rule about private messaging. It seems like there ought to be an exception in circumstances such as this.

    Best Way To Rehome Fish

    I currently have two goldfish in a tank that is too small for them, but I am getting a bigger tank this weekend. My current tank is fully cycled with good parameters, so ideally I should use the old tank water to set up the new tank so I don't have to start from scratch with cycling the new...

    When Is The Best Time To Test Tank Parameters?

    I've been testing my tank once a week, but recently learned that I ought to be doing more frequent water changes. So if I do a water change weekly, should I test my tank right before changing the water, right after (within a few hours) or some time after (a few days later)? Thanks in advance!

    Melafix Not Working For Fin Rot...

    About a week ago, my son noticed that our comet goldfish was acting lethargic and had decreased appetite. Upon inspection, I discovered that her fins were fraying, and she had some kind of injury on her side. After a bit of research, I concluded she was in the beginning stages of fin rot, and I...
