new here. wanted to say hello!
« on: September 20, 2011, 05:52:14 PM »

hi everybody

i am new to the site. although i have been reading this forum for about the past week. i was originally going to do a tank with some of the smaller predators from the amazon. Wimple Piranhas to be exact. after a lot of thought ranging from piranha, cichlid, eels, etc i ended up deciding on goldfish! the reason being is i love the look and personalities they develop. anyway, i will give stats on my tank below. i will be posting and reading a lot more on this site as time goes on! Smiley


1.75 inch black oranda
2.25 inch calico fantail
2.5 inch trinidad pleco
36 gallon bow front tank
aqua clear 50 power filter & aqueon 30
200 watt heater set to 68 (room rarely goes below 70 so it is usually off)
whisper 40 air pump & 4 inch round air stone buried in substrate
40 pounds of natural river pebbles and various large smooth skipping stones
marimo moss, edgeria dense and anubis nana (the goldfish like to eat the edgeria!)
several pieces of mopani would

any concerns or questions do not hesitate to let me know! i am new to goldfish keeping!

Greetings sashimi! Isn't it amazing that so many people are attracted to the goldfish by their personality? Sometimes it doesn't even matter what they look like (even though they are all so beautiful) you just love them for who they are. <3

Welcome!
Goldfish are great, aren't they?  We couldn't get our goldfish right away, so the guy at the pet store tried to talk us into other fish.  We looked, but decided to wait for more goldies to come in.  Best decision we ever made!  We've had the eldest for almost two years now.
