You might try that and talk to them awhile. I even put an ad on craigslist but the people who answered me were not including the info I wanted (how long their pond had been setup, filtration, other fish, etc). The guy I ended up giving the two fish to was very kind (he even brought a bucket with a portable air pump) so I feel good about my decision.

Goldfish sure are misunderstood though. I got a ton of goldfish when I was young and we had no idea how big they actually got or how much ammonia they produce. Even with my one oranda now ammonia can build up quickly but I have lots of filtration :3

With comets... they just get so big and need so much room to swim it's hard to keep them in a house aquarium. The rounder types are a little easier. Oranda can get big but mine seems happy in his temporary home(hoping to move up to a 30ish soon).

Lol, fishyfish, I had something similar happen. After I found that my 5 gallon was leaking, I transferred those plants into my 20 gallon. Due to the leaking, all of my plants started dying, so I had to float them in an attempt to do a last second rescue. Well, it worked. Anyways, where I'm getting at with this, is one day I walked into my room and this bristlenose pleco managed to get to the top and make it onto one of the plants. My boyfriend and I laughed so hard. I love how plecos are what even made him interested in my tanks to begin with. >.>;

I wants a rubberlip tooooo.
Eh, most other species just don't appeal to me. I seem to only like bettas and bottom dwellers. And snails.

I wanted so bad to get a bristlenose, but the pet stores in my area were just not working for me :P No ablino!!! I want a brown or black one :P


Hey, are rubberlips supposed to be spotted? I'm reading some more about them and I keep reading stripes?

Rubberlips and bristlenoses are different. Bristlenoses tend to be dark and spotted unless they're albino. Rubberlips tend to be grayish with some dark striping.

Kitty, beautiful barbs. The female looks quite eggy.

Tiki, haha. I seem to gravitate toward the nocturnal fish that I never see or the big aggressive fish that I don't have room for.
