Guess wot! Carlo my dragon eye was missing today! wtf how does a fish go missing! Well it seems he jumped out and was hiding under the fishbowl leg for at LEAST 2 hours, he musta kamakazed. I was at work, lol I CANT BELIVE HE IS ALIVE. Michael did a bit of rescues, he wasn't breathing when he saw him in a pool of water so he prodded him and he jerked. Michael put him in the water and moved the water through his gills.....my clever hubby saved him xoxoxxo AMAZING Carlos is even eating................I hope he survives!!!!!Michael took water out of the bowl so hes not tempted to do it again, he is a little quite down the bottom of the tank hmmm :(.

    Amazing - takes a little creativity, smarts and some reaction and all things are possible.  Hope all is well.  Pat Michael on the back for me.

I have a black moor gold fish that is just over 10inches long and still appears to be growing. About 1 year ago I bought him a new tank but width wise I dont think it is wide enough although he seems happy. The length of the tank is approx 3ft long,he does have a companion who swims by his side always.Both fish are happy Im just worried the black moors will get bigger than the tank and if this happens I will have to find him a new home,something I dont want to do. Is it possible he will grow longer? I have hours of fun and relaxation just sitting watching them along with my husky pup.

    If a fish will fit in another fishes mouth - it will be considered food.

      I am interested in breeding gold fishes. I am from india i have bred them but I would like to know the feed for them without giving them live food.  Any other dry food and how to make them look plumpy and grow fast.  Hope to get some help from you as a hobbyist

      You really can't tell the difference with great accuracy.  However, when they reach maturity the male looks thinner than the female.  During breeding time, the male will get white sorta (looks like salt) prickles on his head and gills.  If it lays eggs, it is a female.

    I had 5 baby fantails. I've lost one.. I thought it had swim bladder by the time I returned back from the pet shop he was dead.. Now another is going the same! Just as I returned my black tip one started acting the same.. floating, not eating! I thought maybe fan rot? as he's had it 4 days!!! I've tried everything!!!! The shop said they r very small and I really shouldn't of been sold them this size! They r about 2cm full length.. My water is fine shop tested it also.. I've given peas and not fed for 2 days.. the salt thing I just don't even know what is causing the problem to fix it!!! The shop think it's as they r so young.. but all fish were once this young...

    Just got a fantail for my 17 month old, but everything I read says they are cold water fish and it is usually like 75 - 80 degrees in his room. I am wondering if that is ok.

    I have a Shubunkin who has all of a sudden gotten very fat. I'm not sure if this means eggs or constipated or ill. I have 2 other Shubunkins who are not at all like this. I'm quite concerned. Anyone have any suggestions?
