  • Tank malfunction, fish died, what now?

    Best answer: I’ve had a lot of success with feeder fantail goldfish believe it or not. I usually pick 3, a white with bright gold, a calico then whichever catches my eye for fun, gives a fun variety for everyone’s tastes.

    Best answer: I’ve had a lot of success with feeder fantail goldfish believe it or not. I usually pick 3, a white with bright gold, a calico then whichever catches my eye for fun, gives a fun variety for everyone’s tastes. When I get my little guys they are .04 to .19 centcs each, bargain prices. I keep them in a quarantine pail for 3 days to watch for stress and disease then I put them in my tank. There usually 1/2 to 3/4 inch at most and grow up to 5 inches in a few years. The oldest Goldie I had we named Fred, he was 19 years old when I sold him (too big for any of my tanks)

    I have purchased the big speedy goldfish but they usually don’t last mor hen s year or two, not sure if stress or something else. The smaller 5e fish the l9nger it seems to live as it adapts well to its environment.

    Not sure if the filter made the tank heat up, any chance it was a heater malfunction? I have fried a twnkmor two over the years, not enough ester on the Hester snd they mslfuncti9ned. Hard lesson learned. Also your fish may not have died from dise@se but stress heat, like others said, keep your filter, but try deactivating the charcoal (if applicable by shaking it hard then rinsing it thoroughly, this gets all the junk out and keeps the established bacteria started and you won’t hsvr to cycle for several days first.

    Also reuse your rock, just rinse it.... never use soap. Are you running an undergravel,or top filter? If undergravel snd it’s dirty best to break down the tank without dumping all the water - save a few gallons to start up the new tank. Instead of the usual blueish white water for 2 days it should look clear within 24 hours and be safe on day 3 for plants and fish.

    Good luck.

  • Can I get more goldfish in my 10 gallon tank?

    I have a 10 gallon tank and only one goldfish in it. She’s a big goldfish, but she seems very depressed. She literally just sits there floating in the same spot 24/7. I was thinking of getting maybe one or 2 other goldfish to keep her company. She used to live with a Dalmatian Molly and then once she died an albino Cory catfish, which is also deceased. I know 10 gallons is small for a goldfish, but trust me I’ve tried everything. I tried to refine her to someone with a 30 gallon tank, they haven’t contacted me back on the fish and I can’t get in touch with her. No pet stores in my area want her, and I can’t/won’t release her into the Wild bc that’s terrible for the environment. So I HAVE to keep her, despite my best efforts to give her a better tank. And since she’s so depressed I figured I’d add some friends for her. So, would it be a really bad idea to get another one or two goldfish, or does that sound better for the fish? If I’m gonna have her for 10-15 yrs, I’d like her to be happy and I might as well get her some friends that’ll live just as long. Any advice is welcome, thank you!!!

  • Best fish for warm water tank?

    Best answer: Bettas, fancy guppies, and discus do well in warm water, the latter being tricky to care for but can be stunningly beautiful. In fact it's argued that warm water (85) is a key to success along with good water quality.

  • Introducing new German Blue ram help?

    Best answer: German Blue rams just don't breed with each other like that. They get to choose who they want to pair off with and will go from there. You do not choose their mate for them. Get a few of them and let them do the choosing themselves. Then after that you will need a flat rock so the female can lay her eggs on it... show more
    Best answer: German Blue rams just don't breed with each other like that. They get to choose who they want to pair off with and will go from there. You do not choose their mate for them. Get a few of them and let them do the choosing themselves. Then after that you will need a flat rock so the female can lay her eggs on it and the male will then fertilize them with his sperm.

    More importantly, your pH will need to be at around 6 for them to even want to breed. Temperature may need to be raised to at around 81 to 82 degrees and held there until the courtship begins.

    When both are ready to breed the male will be extremely colorful and will initiate the breeding process. By this time the female GBR's belly will have turned a purplish/pink color. He will then begin cleaning the nesting area by fanning around it and once that's done... the female will swim to it and lay her eggs while he goes behind her to fertilize them.

    It may take several tries before they get it right, so you have to be extremely patient. Don't be surprised either if both eat all the eggs and start all over again in a few days.

    Your tank is a bit on the high stocking level.

I'm afraid if I add the ship before cycling, the good bacteria will not be able to reach a large portion of the gravel. Is this true? Should I wait to add the ship when cycling is complete then run the ship under cycled water? Or do I add the ship first? -Thanks!

    Best answer: Neons are schooling fish, You need no less then 6 , a larger school of 8-10 neons is important as they stress esilly They need no less then 20 gallons
    cory cats are shaoling and you should have no less then 5.
    dwarf cories can live in a 20 gallon, regulare larger species in a 30, pygmy cories could live in an expertly care for well established tank, but honestly, I wouldnt keep then in a 10 gallon,
    Ottos are sensitive wild coaght species. They need a shoal a 5 or more. the may not adjust to store bought foods, they NEED to be in an established tank with fairly heavy algae growth.

    3-6 same sex guppies fully stocks a ten gallon.

    Not many people would keep much of anything in a ten gallon. My hospital tank isnt even that small. The filters and heaters for tanks that small are not as good, and its just more difficult for them to work. And for you to keep things stable.

  • Can I put 3 female bettas in the same 10 gallon tank?

    Best answer: There wouldn't be enough territory for the females in a 10 gallon. For a group of female Bettas, you should have a 20 gallon or larger tank so each can carve out their own territory rather than fighting for the same territory with insufficient space to go around. Also, you need more females. With only 3, the... show more
    Best answer: There wouldn't be enough territory for the females in a 10 gallon. For a group of female Bettas, you should have a 20 gallon or larger tank so each can carve out their own territory rather than fighting for the same territory with insufficient space to go around. Also, you need more females. With only 3, the strongest will bully the weakest to death, and you'll end up with one. You should have at least 5 females to spread out the aggression. It also helps if there is a huge amount of decorations to break up sight lines, so they can't look across the tank and see each other easily. Out of sight can be out of mind for them. If possible, you should try to get a group of sisters that have grown up together, and they should all be the same size.

    Do keep in mind that even if you do everything right, you may have serious aggression to the point of injuries or death with female Bettas. So you'll need to keep a careful eye on everyone and be ready to rehouse the fish if necessary.

    And goldfish can NOT be living with tropical fish because tropical fish need temps at 75-78 degrees which is too hot for a goldfish.
