Ok, well yesterday I bought a new Algae Eater named Kabob that the pet store owner suggested I buy. When I first put him in the tank he hit behind the filter and didn't come out for a day... but now he swims with my fish all of the time and doesn't eat algae! I mean, what's up with this? Why can't he be a "normal" algae eater and eat algae!! I have loads of it that needs to be eaten!
Yes, I have the sinking pellets... they love them! I don't have a hard time with Tally, just Mollie! Since Mollie hasn't eaten as much as the others, she hasn't grown as fast and she looks like a tiny baby and all the others are getting to be very big!
Okies! Well everyone I have been away from the boards for a little bit... so there's some updates I have to tell ya'll! Ok, well for my birthday I am getting a 20 gallon tank for my 5 goldfish. 5 goldfish? I thought there was only 4! Well, not anymore!! A couple of weeks ago I added a beautiful butterfly tailed blue scale Oranda named Blue to my tank! He is a baby and still extremely cute, he looks exactly like Lindsay's James but he's a baby! All of my goldfish have grown atleast an inch since I last posted, so they're starting to get pretty big. And yes, none of them died yet! Ok, now on with the story!
My two goldfish Mollie and Tally have been experiencing problems with eating aka they haven't eaten in days because they can't fight for food as well as my other 3. Tally is easily hand fed, but she still can't aim 100% accuratly for the food and it drops out of my hand and the others eat it. Mollie... she just doesn't eat at all and just goes on the bottom and searches through rocks and tries to find food but she never does. So, I decided to separate them from my tank for a little into my hospital tank which is 1 gallon. Was this a right move?
Re: Golden Sinkers (a food just for fancy goldfish)
I have those and my goldfish absolutly love them! I brake them into 4 peices because mine are really big and they're just a little smaller than a dime so I break them up and my fish love them. I recently bought a blue scale Oranda named Blue and he loves them and eats them all of the time... so your pellets are fine :)
