I’m shocked by how much Mocha, my chocolate Oranda, has grown and changed in just three months.
Well atleast someone’s surprised to see me 😂 #goldfish #lol #goodmorning #nofilter #aquarium #fish
I’m personally a huge fan of simple aquarium setups; I’m actually planning on restarting my 5 gallon unheated crayfish tank now that I’ve moved because it doesn’t require much attention but still looks lovely with the right plants! If you’re interested in a similar setup, have a look at this article to find out which plants you can use.
You can find the article here!
I know a lot of you also keep cherry shrimp and plant bowls, so don’t forget to check out the new Aquariadise article!
Shit yes good picture of charlie
Petree checking out my new fish I bought yesterday. A black more name E.T. and two fantail goldfish ( no name yet).
Hi! It’s great to see you’re keeping your goldfish in a filtered aquarium and not a bowl, but if you’re planning to keep them in there for extended periods of time it’s unfortunately still too small. Fancy goldfish like your moor and fantails require about 20 gallons per fish, which would mean 50-60 gallons for the three of them. If you keep them in here their growth will unfortunately become stunted and they might even die from ammonia poisoning. The filter and water volume is simply not enough to handle their waste. They also grow very big (some up to the size of a tennis ball!) and need more swimming room.
Please upgrade them as soon as possible and do lots of water changes in the meantime, or return them to the store and get fish that are more suitable for life in smaller setups. For more info on fancy goldfish keeping, you could check out this fancy goldfish caresheet!
Good luck, if you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Meet Quasimodo, the newest addition to my family!
He’s missing an eye and is a lil disabled, so I got him for free. I consider it a rescue because he was otherwise considered “not valuable” or “trash”, which he is certainly not! Hopefully with the right amount of love and care, he’ll get better.
What a cutie! He looks like he just needs lots of food and clean water to turn into a very impressive fish. Good luck! :)
Ok so my plan was to put them in a big bin I had, but that got cracked somehow. So I have to make due with this.
Unfortunately, I can’t afford a pond now or in the future, as much as I would LOVE to keep these guys.
So I’m taking the healthiest ones in to my work to be sold as PETS. It’s not ideal, I know, but it’s better than dying in a dumpster.
Also unfortunately, about 20 were dead in the bag when I got them. The remainder are in really rough shape and may not pull through. As it stands, in this condition, I cannot take them into work.
So for now I’ll care for them to the best of my ability.
IF ANYBODY IN RHODE ISLAND HAS A POND OR STOCK TANK AND CAN TAKE THEM PLEASE SEND ME AN ASK. I’d love to re home them that way but I know it is unlikely.
