Hahahah. Look up bronze goldfish. That's a colour I like. I think I could only find fantails in that colour. We'll see. But I'm inching closer and closer to getting my goldies.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

OHOH I think I found a pic of what you drew in you tank pic? Here, there are several pics there but you can see the one with the wood meandering across? I think its a smaller tank, but it has some bright fish in it?

No music at the gym is very awkward. It was also only me, Matt and less than 5 other people working out in the whole gym!! lol

I. Still. Have. Snails. Get to work, loaches! They're all over the blinking place! No food until you eat the snails!

Olympia, what will you do with the buffaloheads if you put goldies in there?

Hahaha no Olympia, I just used that pic as a reference for the colors? not for the fish. I just found that pic looking at the filters that site sells, lol.

I thought the tank looked similar to the one you wanted, and it had some flashy fish, er bight colored fish in it and I think still looks good. get it?

If the tank you wanted looked like the one in the pic. Your goldfish would look good in it too, well if you got goldfish instead....

Poor Sakura, lol. Its been less than 24 hrs? Perhaps they were full, and well they are new too...

And you made me lol again, thanks...good timing.

just looked up some pics, what kind did you get? the horseface one is cute.. oh I like the dojo too, cute

At times, the loach will lie on its side when there are insufficient hiding places, giving the impression that it is sick; this behavior is normal.
Hmm and they are supposed to eat all your snails? and they are bottom dwellers? sorry, Im so new to all this.

Olympia, you can try it. Since buffaloheads are bottom dwellers and goldies aren't, it could work. What did Izzy say temp-wise for the mix?

Thanks, Aahnay. :)

EDIT: I got dwarf chain loaches, scientific name sidthimunki botia. I do have dojo loaches in a different tank though. I love them. They're very active and cute but they dig up the plastic plants every day.

Izzy said.. remove 9 congo tetra + ctenopoma (ctenopoma can be added later if bioload is okay). Leaves me with 2 bichir, 3 ropes, 2-5 buffalo heads, the syno, the knife, possible African butterflies. She said that fancy goldfish should be kept at 70-80F so the temperature is fine. Was planning for the tank to stay at 75F.
Want ryukin the most, I think.
