    Pond Fry!

    XD You spoke too soon, Shawn! He ended up getting out of the fry net I set up and now he's loose in the minnows pond! He'll have to take care of himself now, the little dude. I believe his chances are better than they were in the goldfish pond, but he can still get eaten.

    Pond Fry!

    He/She's beautiful and I'm sure you'll take excellent care of the little one!
  4. Bleh, it's sad that there are so many health hardships going on! I'm sorry guys! 😧 I wish you the best of luck. As for Mayra, I miss her too. She could be a grumpkin, but she was fun with her videos and experiments and whining about regular goldfish! I just like knowing I can check up on here from time to time and see how people are doing, share any photos of I've got them!

    Pond Fry!

    I found a pond Fry! Inne cute? He's just a little "regular goldfish," most likely an orange and white hibuna. Maybe he'll end up a shubie or a comet, though!
  6. Sorry to hear of your troubles
  7. Understand completely!
  8. Myra doesn't think forums of any kind will survive. She might be correct on that point, but if I had a crystal ball, I'd have bought Apple shares with my pocket money - who knows the future!?? Wish I did. I would personally like to apologise for my absence - wife is not well and is not getting any better, nor going to get any better. Been really busy. Hospital appointments and visits. Wish Myra would return - I completely understand that she was making a huge effort, with posts and new photos when others were not making the same effort (in the beginning) - when we were brand new, We have unfortunately lost more than we have gained along the way, as far as I can see, me included, due to issues.... If we are still around, we still have a chance, but unfortunately life and life issues surpass membership on the forum, as I, Walt, Ginger and others have discovered. Come back when you can is the best any of us can do? But... We ARE still here, but (my old drum) content, and fresh content is the best thing "we" could have. I am so sorry that I have not been around so much.....
  9. Last posting I found was around May
  10. Sorry to hear she is no longer active, she has a lot of knowledge to share on the subject of goldfish, good advice on health

    Aww

    HA!!!!! I'm glad your daughter didn't suffer to much damage to her head when you weren't careful! LUCKILY little kids bounce back quicker then adults with bumps on the head and other things.... and hes, Haidyn won this round of "who can get to sleep faster"...it's fun though because after i woke up a few minutes later, H was sound asleep...luckily she sleeps like a rock so bringing her to her crib and putting her in it was no problem at all!...Noah was NEVER a good sleeper at 5 months old...Haidyn on the other hand.....i'm sure if she wanted to she could sleep through a tornado siren....
  12. I believe she abandoned the forum around February.
  13. Thanks for the ideas, the babies seem to be "bastards", some with single tails, some with tri fin tails, none look like calicos at this point. they now look to be 1 to 2 inches in size, mixed in size, but all look healthy. Time will tell as to what they turn out to be. An off subject question, where is Myra?

    Aww

    Maybe you are a bit biased, but that is a mother's right! My mum and dad left after a week's visit this morning. I grew up with dogs and they loved their dogs, the ones I grew up with. But they would talk to MY dog, but rarely interact. Truth is, only we love our children and dogs the way we do, everyone else just tolerates our "friends"? From the photo though, I reckon the child won - Mum fell asleep sooner! But well done - I got into big trouble once, when my first daughter was handed to me, to mind in the morning, when the wife went for a shower. In my defense, I was not fully awake (at all), but i have never lived down the fact that Grace landed on the floor, and I was still unaware that she was with me! I was asleep in the bed, the baby on the floor asleep (or perhaps unconscious) when she came out of the en-suite. Fortunately Grace seems to have no significant after effects ( 1st year finished at University), but if only she could learn to switch off lights and turn off taps........ Perhaps that is my failure to prevent her drop onto a (very padded) carpet?
  15. Ash, would you please start a new topic on this issue - I think folks will see and find it quicker.
  16. My advice would be to stock it lightly, so you need not do maintenance often. Either the goldfish babies or some new goldfish, preferably single-tails so they are hardier.

    surprise!

    Glad to hear it
  18. The microphone doesn't hear me correctly .... She wasn't gulping maybe once every 45 sec. when I found her floating at the top of the tank shes better but she won't eat
  19. Help I think my fish has the septicemia I have her in a 2 gallon bucket and rotating when fresh bucket everyday and have given her the erythromycin and she seems to do it be doing a lot better but now she's not eating this is day 2 her nitrate and ammonia levels were very high the person at the fish store told me give the erythromycin and aquarium salt yesterday she eight about three peas and then in the evening I gave her some fish food but she seems to have not eaten any of it when I changed her to the fresh tank today I'm wondering what food I should put in their peas or fish breaks she wasn't gossiping when I had first found her she was laying on her side at the top of the tank I thought you was dead and after I administer the medicine yesterday she is finally right side up and can swim around in the bowl but she's not eating I don't know what to do

    Soon to start up a second 55 gallon

    I love my goldfish of course but they don't play well with other fish. Maybe you'd like to start a community tank? I've been planning my nonexistent next tank and filling it with neon tetras, synodontis lucipinnis (they look like little sharks!) and a betta. With 55 gallons you wouldn't need to have someone do frequent water changes if you keep it lightly stocked and put some plants in there. Even 1 or 2 goldfish would likely need more water changes as they get bigger. Planning a new tank is fun! Hope you're able to regain your mobility and get the new tank up and running!

    You could do betta fish??????? do the same gender of betta fish not kill each other?? but then again, can a betta or 2 betta live in a 55 gallon??? my first fish was a betta and he lived in a 10 gallon aquarium with just a couple plants (fake) and some aquarium gravel,.. so i have no idea if you can do betta in a bigger size aquarium and since betta fish are low maintenance, it wouldn't require you to walk a lot so you save your energy for when you actually need it!
  23. Thanks the comments are welcome, and a good idea. I still do not know if I will regain much more mobility than I have at present. I was told that the home health nurse and PT lady both thought I might never walk again by any way or form. So at least I can get around with the walker at present. But that translates into having some one else do all the heavy lifting, etc. I will keep the rods in my back forever, so say the Dr and his team

    I agree with @jnifer, this would probably be a good tank to put the babies in to let them hopefully grow to their full potential.
  25. I think you said you have some goldfish babies too ? Maybe they could be put in it??
  26. As I improve in mobility, my plan is to clean out and restart my second 55 gallon tank. I am open to suggestions as to what to put in the tank as far as freshwater fish. Shall I go with a few more goldfish, or something entirely different. Ideas please
