Hahaha! I'm sure you'd have some if you dug a hole in the ground a plopped your 10 gal in there!! Or maybe just look around in your back yard hard enough. I saw turtles there all the time before I added my pond.

Goldfish Gel Food Recipes

Back to my old routine again! I just typed out my goldfish gel food recipe for those interested. Gold fish Gel Food Recipes. It's a lot of fun to make, but it's not a good food for bettas. It has too much plant matter and not enough protein as its intended for an omnivore not a carnivore.

Emergency Preparedness

In summer we have to worry about strong storms. In fall those of us on the eastern US have to worry about hurricanes, and we all have to worry about snowstorms in winter. So I guess there wouldn't be a best time to publish this article!

Either way, we want to consider our pets. Animals like dogs are easy to move in case of an evacuation. Fish are not. You need to have a plan with them.

Largest Tanks in the World

Another video post. A few weeks ago I found these gorgeous videos of the world largest tanks. These aren't private tanks, but tanks installed in public aquariums around the globe! Be sure to full screen them and watch them in the highest resolution. Enjoy!

Goldfish Salvation

Sorry for the long break in posts again. We've had a family tragedy in that we lost my grandfather last week. Luckily I dredged this out of the draft bin so I wouldn't leave you guys hanging too long.

Gold fish Salvation, artwork inspired by those chubby golden fishes.

Sorry for the belated posts. Life hasn't been too kind to me right now. But I have a happy little story about a goldfish in my post for today!

While I was sitting by it and trying to snap photographs of the butterflies that danced by, I noticed a white goldfish with a red splotch on his head, and he looked familiar.
