    Repashy Super Gold is a hit

    It is a little pricey but I’m only feeding it to the goldies so what I bought should last a while. I justified the cost by 1) figuring out it was cheaper for me to just purchase this than purchase the ingredients to make my own, 2) I’m only feeding four fish so it should last a while, and 3) if...

    Repashy Super Gold is a hit

    I ordered some Repashy Super Gold a while back and just got around to making a small batch this weekend. Oh my gosh! You would think my fish hadn’t been fed in weeks! I’ve never seen them gobble something up so fast (and I consider my fish expert gobblers)! It’s safe to say they love the...

    New Goldfish should be here tomorrow!

    Not the best pictures since I am trying not to stress him out but he is here!!! He arrived safe and sound and really active. He is a sassy little thing! I floated his bag for about 30 minutes and and then slowly over the course of a couple hours added water from the tank to his bag. Finally I...

    New Goldfish should be here tomorrow!

    I didn’t know that about the Thai lines. I’m glad I posted on here so now I know to keep a close eye on him. I have the QT tank set up and running and took tomorrow off so I can take my time acclimating him and make sure I do it properly.

    Nelson the goldfish bottom sitting

    He passed away overnight. Absolutely no clue what was wrong.

    Nelson the goldfish bottom sitting

    The only “major” change is taking out that large decoration and moving some plants around to fill in the empty space. He seems to have perked up a little in the qt tank. Other than bottom sitting for the past week he has no other symptoms.

    Nelson the goldfish bottom sitting

    I honestly have no clue what’s wrong. He has been bottom sitting for a week now, not really eating much (although he will eat a bite here and there), and just not acting like himself at all. Checked all water parameters and they are good. Everything is where it should be. Temperature was good...

    Pearlscales

    When it comes to goldfish I have always been an oranda fan. Even before I had them myself they have always been my favorites. They are just the most adorable fish ever! Then, a few weeks ago we "rescued" Baby Luna who is a pearl scale. I fell in love! She was the first pearlscale I ever saw in...

    New Goldie

    I went to pick up more fish food because my fish are pigs. While I was there I noticed they had a little pearlscale! Well I thought maybe Luna would appreciate having another pearlscale so I brought him home. Good thing we are upgrading to the 125 soon! Meet Baby Moon

    Choose decorations carefully

    This is one of my favorite decorations in the goldfish tank. BUT…see where the red arrow is pointing? Cheeto got his fat self stuck in there today! Luckily I was in the office and saw it happen and got him out quickly. I had to push him out backwards. He was not happy. When choosing decor for a...

    Upgrading the Goldie Tank

    There are two anubias and one tiny straggly little Java fern in there but yes, the rest are silk. I don’t know why they haven’t bothered the live ones but so far they haven’t.

    Upgrading the Goldie Tank

    I currently have 4 fancy goldfish in a 65 gallon tank. Everyone is happy and healthy and growing! They are getting so big they are starting to look a little crowded. So we’ve decided to upgrade their tank to a 125! I’m so excited! They will have so much more room! This is their current tank...

    “Baby” Luna

    She is the cutest thing! I love the way she “waddles” when she swims. And she has finally stopped hiding and gotten really curious and friendly.

    “Baby” Luna

    Once upon a time not very long ago we “rescued” a tiny little pearlscale goldfish from a little 1-2 gallon tank on a desk. She wasn’t very big at all. Teeny little thing. I was really afraid she was stunted. Well…she wasn’t. She has really grown! I’m going to have to stop calling her “baby”...

    Bully Goldfish

    I’ve noticed when I introduce a new Goldie the new one hides for a bit. It varies with the fish. My oranda, Nelson, hid for just a few days. My baby, Luna, hid for almost three weeks. I would say keep a close eye on them and make sure the new guy is eating and they will work it out. Your...

    Andy - before and after

    Since I posted Sigmund’s before and after I felt like I should post Andy’s as well. This is when we first brought him home (the end of March) and a couple weeks ago when I was just trying to feed him.

    60 Gallon Tank Goldfish vs tropical fish

    I currently have a 60 gallon with four fancy goldfish and it is the best! So full of personality! It’s like having four little aquatic puppies.
