Oh dear. Just uhh tell her to watch for signs of disease. Most pet store goldfish come riddled with all kinds of nasties including gill flukes, ich, internal parasites, and finrot. That coupled with the stress of the poor living environment might be the death of both fish. You're fighting an uphill battle, and I wish you the best.

She was thinking about getting rid of the desk and getting a corner tank and stand. I think she wants the 36 gallon one? it was a weird number of gallons, don't remember how many exactly but it was bigger then 20.

The new fishie looks to be doing rather well. It has really colored up over the past 3 weeks and now its even sporting a mustache and it constantly foll

The new fishie looks to be doing rather well. It has really colored up over the past 3 weeks and now its even sporting a mustache and it constantly follows the big guy around all the time.

Conditions are not ideal, but for the little guy - it's better then a petco tank...and things are a little better. I put some live floating plants in there and do WC's every few days. And that is my Bubbler...

Maybe if you contribute a bit to the new tank it'll help?
36 gallons is actually a good size for two fantails- gasp. Just hope that that doesn't make her think she can get more.
Must say, that mustache is adorable!
