  • Why won't these really big Koi eat.?

    My friend gave me 3 huge-28" Koi. The will not eat and I've had them for 3 days. They do seem to graze the bottom though. Are some big Koi just not good eaters????

  • Do you have any tips for switching my goldfish from flakes to pellets?

    it was hard for me to give the correct amount of goldfish flakes so I switched to goldfish pellets. I am paranoid though that my fish isn't recognizing it as food and isn't eating it. I am feeding my comet goldfish, and while I know that doesn't sound big, I do care about him and want the best for him.... show more

  • When will people stop doing these things to their fish ?

    Best answer: Unfortunately improper care is an issue with all pets. There will always be people who don't care or didn't bother to research or get info from people who have no idea what they are talking about (like most people who work at pet stores).

    Hello, I got my two Young sons two beta fish, a beautiful red one and a beautiful blue one. We named them Spiderman and Captain America (both female.)they got along great. I have a 2 gallon tank with gravel, fake plants, a light, filter and heater. I fed them pellets (orange and green if it matters). They were happy and swam around happily.. I honestly took care of them. Fed them once a day and cleaned their tank/filter every Sunday, never missed a week. (I've had them 2 months) it's my birthday weekend so I cleaned their tank a bit early on Thursday because I wouldn't have time this weekend.. sigh.. Two days ago I found Spiderman belly up next to the filter. She was dead. I took her out and disposed of her, her beautiful red color has faded over the last week to whitish-yellow. It was very sad. I kept an eye on captain America and she seemed to be happy and healthy.. Then tonight I went to feed her and I didn't see her.. I reluctantly turn the tank to the back side of the filter... And she was dead also. I am sorry but I want to know what I did wrong.. I wish I could've had these fish for a really long time. Any help will be appreciated. Also. The water was always very slightly warmer than room temperature when I let them in the tank and they always ate their food. I didn't change processes for cleaning their tank at all for the last 2 months. I just don't understand... Also kids never touched or fed them. I have the food put away where they can't reach.

  • Do you like to fish?

    Best answer: No I don't enjoy torturing animals for fun. Though I do accept fishing as a source of food. But that can be done more or less ethically. Torturing animals for fun and then releasing them is pretty unethical in my opinion. Not many people are in favor of catch and release deer hunting, imagine dragging Bambi... show more
    Best answer: No I don't enjoy torturing animals for fun. Though I do accept fishing as a source of food. But that can be done more or less ethically. Torturing animals for fun and then releasing them is pretty unethical in my opinion. Not many people are in favor of catch and release deer hunting, imagine dragging Bambi through the woods with a hook in its mouth just for fun. Not many places would allow that. We discriminate against fish simply because they don't have fur (really!).

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mtTrZJ8... I had won my fish during the fair and so far has done okay, he ate some of his food but there seems to be missing scales. one side okay amount together and the other small scattered no scale places. The part that extend out for the gills to open both sides are white circles. We believe it's just coloring but i don't know. But the main part is has just staying in one part of the bowl is it just cause it's getting cold? I really don't wanna take him outside yet, just cause that's how my other fish died. (Ps. No this isn't his forever home. I've got half a barrel we use outside (good sized) and in old aquarium in a storage building.)

    Put them in a cooler to keep the temperature more stable.

    Find out if the ph in your new house is diferent, Acclimate the fish for at least 90 minutes to adjust.
    Add bits of new water to the bags while the float untill the bags are at least 75% full of new water and the rest is their old water.

    You should add stress coat anytime you handle a fish. But I might wate to add it to the new tank.

  • Is a 95L (25 gallon) tank big enough for 5 comet goldfish?

    I know people will yell at me and what not so please don't. I'm trying to make it better. I have a tank where I let my turtle and 2 goldfish live together. They were fine with each other until a few month later..My turtle try to eat them. I found their fin rip and such so I immediately move them to my glofish tank. At first they are all fine, however, a few days ago I find one of my glofish fin ripped up like he got on in a fight and he died. It is possible that my goldfish is killing them? Is there anything I can do or should I just remove the goldfish?

  • Is my goldfish lonely?

    I have a single fancy goldfish in a 29 gallon tank by himself (with the exception of a snail). Is he lonely? Should I get a second one or will that only stress him out?

  • Can I feed my bluegill meat?

    Best answer: The big problem is that is not very digestible, and easy to over feed and pollute the tank. Plus the fish might not get a balanced diet, mostly a pellet or flake because it's more vegetable matter. Just feed very small amounts and it's fine. I'd use cooked though.

    I'd use cooked though.

    And shrimp or squid would be better, but still, small amounts.

    Worms, like earthworm or butterworms, not mealworms, would be even better.
    If you do feed mealworms, crush their heads before feeding; live ones will possibly kill your fish by eating their way out.

  • How long can Minnows and Corys survive without food.?

    Hi I’m off for a short break from Monday to Friday and was wondering if it’s ok to leave my fish for 4 days without food? If it was for any longer, then I would purchase an automatic feeder, but not too sure if I need to for only 4 days. Thanks for your help.
