Re: Lucky goldfish fry. #32
I would love to pop some pics on to show you my tidgy babies but apart from them being tiny they are also very nimble when it comes to shooting off into the elodea. As soon as they get a little bigger i will have another go at getting a decent pic.

Re: Please help blood patches on beloved goldfish #34
Hi welcome to FK.

When you added ?new bits? to your filter I assume you mean the media! If so did you change all of it in one go, or did you change 50% to keep the bacteria colony?

Have a look at the second link under my signature strip on the life expectancy of fish; if your fish are three years old they should be touching 5? now.

Tank size and filter capacity is everything with goldies, they are loveable fascinating creatures but are unfortunately the biggest poop makers going which is why they need uba filtration, unfortunately the sting rays are sadly lacking when it comes to goldies.

The test kit advised by Ella already is an essential piece of kit for any fish keeper so I suggest investing in one. The problem with your fish is very likely down to water quality/filtration.

Re: New babies in the 180 #39
Oh how sweet are they.. can we have some more pics V?

Oh and welcome to the cold side brace yourself though, you will spend much of your time replanting and trying to save the plants your goldies miss..which wont be many.

Re: new pond gone wrong #40
So, if im reading this right your hole was dug, liner put in then concrete? was the concrete just for the edging stones or has your mate covered the whole of the liner?
