Do anyone else's goldfish play follow the leader? Wherever my comet goes my other two are waddling behind him. It's absolutely adorable.

I agree with Kithy. A single bristlenose in a 55 gal is just fine.

That's the shoaling behaviour of goldfish. Most people don't realize how social they are. My koi do the same thing. It's soo cute to watch.

I'm so impatient on getting this 75 gallon started. Alas, bills need to be paid and I'll only have a certain amount left over to purchase a few things each paycheck. Next paycheck I'm getting the heater, thermometer and a tube of silicone. Do I really have to scrap every little piece of silicone out? Can I leave the difficult pieces in the edges of the walls?

It's been FOREVER since I've had those adorable pudgy goldies.

You seriously want to grow it? Get a good light hood and leave it on 8 to 10 hours a day. It also blooms hugely with phosphates added.

Yeah. They all make it look so flippin easy. I think whomever had the tank before me was going to redo the silicone. 95% of the silicone on the sides were gone. What was on there, was wedged into very inside of the corners.

I'm sure you've heard but DO NOT stick the razor in between the panes of glass. Will ruin the whole tank. When you run your fingers along it you want to only feel glass.
I missed a spot, and when we went over it with the new stuff, it would not stay on, it repelled away from any dry silicone. So we just caked on a huge amount. Good thing it was on the bottom so you don't see it. xD
