    20 Gallon Angelfish?

    I recently have gotten a new 20 gallon fish tank. I am going to switch my 3 guppies, 3 white cloud minnows and 4 inch goldfish into the tank. I have always had a fascination with angelfish. I was wondering if I could put just one angel in the tank with the other fish I have. Is it possible...

    Fish Ideas For 20 Gallon

    Hi, I recently got a new 20 gallon tank. My hopes for this tank are to transfer my telescope goldfish, 3 guppies and 3 white cloud minnows into the tank. I would also like to either get new fish for the tank, or add more fish, like guppies and white cloud minnows. I was also thinking of another...

    Sick Goldfish

    about a week ago i noticed my fantail goldfish sitting at the bottom of the tank, i immediately did a 30% water change and until yesterday he seemed perfectly fine. Yesterday he was sitting at the bottom again. I did another water change and looked closely at him to see if there was any visible...

    5YO Goldfish w/ red spots on head

    I've had my Goldie in a 20-gallon tank in Alpharetta while I'm at vet school in Athens. I transferred her to her 55-gallon tank here in Athens today. She's been away from here for a few months now so I just noticed this on her head. A friend/"fish expert" thinks it's fungus. What do you guys...

    Injured Pearlscale Goldfish

    Hi, I've had 'Ping pong' for over a month and he has been a bit bullied by the other fish, but last night he was pretty badly attacked (do not know who the attacker was). His fins are shredded, he has a several cuts, a damaged gill and half his scales are either missing or badly damaged. (I'm...

    Goldfish problem

    Hello! I have 2 goldfish in a 30 gallon (I know, too small) tank. They are usually in the outdoors for 6-7 months in a semi-large pond. We have a small, 10 gallon tetra whisper running as the only filtration (besides plants). It was the only filter we had. Surprising, they haven't died yet. But...

    I need help not killing a pleco!

    So my friend wants me to get his almost foot long pleco so it can live with my 2 black moors. I also have a few mystery snails in the tank. I have a few problems to start with already. This fish has lived in almost complete isolation for most of its life because it was bullied so bad by other...

    Am I "over-chemicaling" my water?

    I have three goldfish in a forty gallon tank (Black Moore almost two years old, red cap oranda half a year old and a new Ryukin a few months old) and I'm afraid I may be putting too many chemicals in the water. I have Well water so I have no concern for chlorine, but I do get heavy metals. I...

    Black Moor Feeding Amount

    Hello! I bought my Black Moor from PetCo, and the employee told me to give it 3-4 pellets, once every day. I read online that you should feed it twice or three times a day, with food it can eat in 30 seconds. So, my question is, how much should I feed it each day? Thanks so much!

    Help! What to do about fumigation?

    Help! I have a 30 gallon tank with a goldfish and a pleco that I cannot move. My house needs to be fumigated for remotes. How do I protect my goldfish from the fumes? We just moved to this new house and I can't move the fish again or they'll die of stress.

    Help!!! Emergency Ammonia Problem!!!

    First off, I'd like to say I am already educated in general fish keeping and know about cycling the tank and everything now. My current problem comes from when I was not as educated. I was planning on getting a small above ground pond and decided to look up a good way to introduce the beneficial...

    Worrying about my goldfish.

    I have two fancy goldfish who I've placed into my 10g tank temporarily (they will be moving into a 50g tank within the next week). The tank has been properly cycled and all of the levels are showing up fine, but something is off. I just added them into this tank today. They have it all to...

    Goldfish Can't Swallow Food

    So a little while ago I bought a new goldfish. Quarantined him for 2 weeks, was doing great, eating well and was totally fine. After 2 weeks I put him in my 75 gal display tank (with other goldfish) and about a week later he started sitting at the bottom and when he'd eat he'd sit and chew on...

    Oranda with Dropsy - Is it time to Euthanize her?

    I went on vacation for a week, and when I came back, my oranda was showing some signs for what I believe to be dropsy. Her belly is really swollen and her scales are beginning to raise. One of her cheeks is really swollen and she's got a large swollen white spot around her eye. She has some...

    Can I place White Cloud Mountain minnows in a tank with shubunkin Goldies?

    I am upgrading my two small shubunkin goldfish to a 55 gallon planted aquarium and want to introduce another species of fish. I am thinking of adding a school of White Cloud Mountain minnows in as well after the goldfish go in, but have read that minnows are fin nippers. Does this apply to...

    My Goldfish died mysteriously?

    To begin, I am an inexperienced fish keeper. I have two goldfish (or had, now that one has died) in a ten gallon tank. One is a Shubunkin, and the other was a comet. My Ammonia is at 0, there are no live plants in the tank, and I have a filter. Before you yell at me for having two goldfish that...

    Goldfish gulping air - perfect water

    Just had a quick question. I have four fancy goldfish in a 75 gal. tank. After feeding two of them will gulp at the surface for a little while and the other two won't. The water parameters are absolutely perfect. 0 ammonia 0 nitrite and below 20 for nitrate. Ph is also in the correct range for...

    My goldfish died :(

    Forgive me if I'm doing this wrong, but I'm looking for some help/advice. My goldfish died today very unexpectedly. We won him (and 2 others) at a fair 5 years ago. He was a basic goldfish and was larger than the others. I have a 50 gallon tank with a canister filter and feed tetra flakes, pre...

    Black Moor looks like it's shedding its slim coat?

    So I don't know what's wrong with my black moor, if anything. I don't know if it's shedding its slime coat or what's going on, but my black moor looks like it has these white/clear splotches all over its body. Some days it looks worse than others. Some days he looks fine. I recently just changed...
