Okay sorry let me run down this clearer.
Roommate N1 son's goldfish died. Her sisters decided to replace the goldfish but Roomate N1 didn't want anymore fish. So it was dumped into a half gallon after it just wouldnt die "natrually". Roommate N2 tried to house the goldfish with her betta to very quick bad idea. So back into the half gallon where it sat about 2 weeks at most with barely anyone feeding it and absolutly no cleanings. Feeling sorry for the little guy
Roommate N2 dumped him into my 10gal with my 3 minnows. My bettas are house seperate because, yeah, it won't work out. Goldfish ruined my plans of housing minnows and betta together but oh well.
If I further confuse you, you can read the thread "This is SPARTA!"
As for the Water parameters I have no idea. I'm partly color blind making those test strips completely usless to me and I have no one to tell me what color they really are. But I do clean the tank every other week and change the filter. Do a bit of clean up here and there because the goldfish trashes the tank all the time.
Tempriture right now is a mite is about 65 we hit a cold snap here in CA.
Goldfishies diet, those grass looking like plants in my tank, the java fern, the roots of the water lilly before I reburried it, tetrafin flakes (trying to get rid of em), Omega One flakes for goldfishies. I occasionally drop nori (seaweed) in there but I only seen the minnows snach that up. But he also does eat what ever floats up from the bottem the minnows root up.
I just realized how much ---- that poor goldfish must eat.
