Hello! Hmm, what to say, what to say. Factoids? My name is Nora and I joined for some advice on the potential recovery of my eight-year-old comet goldfish, who may or may not be on his way out... :'( Whether the ever-so-creatively named Goldy pulls through or not, I'm planning on setting up a tank to breed some guppies. A family friend did that many moons ago and apparently it was quite fun and he ended up with some interestingly coloured fish. I'm very, very new to fish raising, I've had the same remarkably hardy fish for eight years, but that's the only fish I've ever had. Everyone else on here seems to have posted a million things about their fish, so I'll give you some little facties about mine. As I've said, I own an eight-year-old comet goldfish named Goldy, I know because I got it around my birthday when it was just a wee 28 cent feeder fish, the theory being that it would be a rather short-term venture. No. This fish has been alive and well up until very recently, and had just been moved to a twenty gallon tank last week, although it's currently living in the ten gallon because it's sick and the general consensus is that the new water is the problem, though it had been stressed out before. I also had a Plecko, but it was returned to the pet store last night because that's the other possible cause of the illness.
