• Why did my goldfish jump out of the tank?!?

    Last week I bought two goldfish. They seemed happy in their tank and I kept the water clean. I also have a filter and I place where they can hide. I don’t understand why one of them jumped out and sadly didn’t survive. Will my other fish be alone? Why did it jump?

  • Why is my sister annoyed that i use the betta bowl that she gave me for aquascaping? ( I'm 16)?

    Best answer: What a bizarre thing to be annoyed about when you are actually doing something interesting in life. Use the betta bowl for raising mini shrimps for feeding the betta.

  • Is it possible to temporarily house a common goldfish and a Black Moor Fantail goldfish together?

    Best answer: A few things you can do. 1. Get a 10-20 gallon storage tub and use that. 2. Treat the new common with a salt bath and add it to the 125 now.

    2. Treat the new common with a salt bath and add it to the 125 now.

    I had an oranda in a 40 gallon tank in a classroom once and someone added three common goldfish with no other place to separate them. They killed the oranda after about 10 days by constantly butting into it and harassing it.

    I'd never recommend keeping a fancy, especially one with compromised vision with a common wild type goldfish for any period of time after that. Some people do it I know, but I can't say I recommend it.

    Best answer: Yes goldfish are hardy and dont need a heater, so many people assume they are simple to care for.But the are some of the largest messiest fish available,

    Because they are hardy they should survive a fish in cycle. But the bigger the tank the better. even A large tub would be better then what you have. 10 liters is just much too small for fish. you will need no less the 75 liters, or a 20 gallon tank for one fancy goldfish. And a filter for double that.

    You need to add dechlorinator! fish can not tolerate chlorine, and you might also have chloramines, or heavy metals that need to be taken care of. so get a bottle of Seachums prime. It is concentrated, so it is a better value then it may seem.

    You will need to change 35% or so of the water once a week with a gravel cleaner. For the first 2 months, you should try to change it 2 times a week. Always add prime to the remaining water in the tank, or to the new water in the bucket before adding the water.

    And in case you saw the erlier post and were wondering, You can not remove chlorine by stirring the water! Goldfish need clean water! They do not thrive in dirty swamp water that a cow would swim in!

    My female betta had some white around her mouth so I bought some medicine at the store (Melafix fish first aid) and I gave her 9 drops of it everyday for three days. (It says a teaspoon was for 10 gallons so I dripped it into a teaspoon and counted the drops I counted 90 so then I divided by 10 to find out how many drops would be in a gallon-9) So after doing this my betta is not doing good at all she is on the ground breathing very heavy and she seems to have white and red patches by her mouth. I think she might die and I have no clue how to help her at this point.

  • We are getting goldfish and my 16 year old daughter just wants a single one. Will it get lonely?

    My daughter will be responsible for taking care of it too. No matter how much space or basic needs, it still won’t have socialization. All it will do is swim around and wait for the next feeding. Should I get an “only child” aka lone goldfish?

  • What fish and how many to put in a 16 gallon freshwater tank?

    Best answer: Amano Shrimp would make good algae eaters for that size of a tank. They are also good at gently cleaning a plant of algae without hurting the plant itself.

    Best answer: Amano Shrimp would make good algae eaters for that size of a tank. They are also good at gently cleaning a plant of algae without hurting the plant itself. Many bottom feeders won't do well with your substrate, but Amano Shrimp should be fine with it. They also have low bioloads and so you can comfortably have them in your tank. They will need to be fed, as they are such thorough algae eaters that they will quickly run out of algae to eat, so you can feed them sinking algae wafers or blanched vegetables such as Zucchini.

    Your tank size really only has room for one species of schooling fish. Some fish options include:

    One of the smaller species of Rasboras. They need at least 6 of their own kind. Mosquito Rasboras or Dwarf Rasboras would work well. They are colorful and fairly active, and are small enough that they won't overstock your tank or eat the Amano Shrimp.

    If your water is on the acidic side, you might also have good luck with Ember Tetras. These little guys also need at least 6 of their own kind. As long as the water is slightly acidic they aren't difficult to keep.

    If you keep the tank below 72 degrees, you could try White Cloud Mountain Minnows. These attractive fish are sub-tropical, so need temperatures of 60-71 degrees. They are a schooler that should have at least 6 of their own kind. These are extremely hardy fish.

    Beckford's Pencilfish are another option. These are mostly top dwellers. They need at least 6 of their own kind, and are quite hardy.

    If your pH is 7.0 or higher you could add in an ornamental snail, such as a Nerite Snail or Mystery Snail to add more variety to the community tank.

    Some low light, hardy plants:
    Java Fern, Anubias species, Cryptocoryne species, Marsilea, Bacopa species, most mosses, and Hygrophila species should work out well.
