do you have a black background on your tank?
Second of my butterfly telescope fry. This darling, also nameless, hasn’t changed much, if any, since it arrived. It’s sweet as can be and hanging in there, but has gained no weight in a month. I may need to try something else to get some weight on it… I hope it’s just a very slow grower.
weight .002 kg
Frozen brine shrimp was a big help when getting my moor to fatten up a bit!
Blotch and Cranberry! I figured, why not take weights and get close ups of these beauties too. :)
Calico colors are so sooo pretty. man. I probably should have thought to take weights when they first got here, but ah well.
Blotch weight 9g
Cranberry weight 8g

hi!! thank you for your concern but those are actually not tropical fish <3 they are freshwater goldfish and they are easy breezy at a cool 62 <3
I’m sorry to break it to you but if those are goldfish then there is an even bigger problem! This tank is not nearly big enough to keep goldfish in; single tailed goldfish are actually pond fish and fancies need around 20 gallons per fish with heavy filtration. Please rehome these goldies as soon as possible, as they will get growth deformities and ammonia poisoning in a tank this size. Many of people with a pond are willing to adopt a few goldfish, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find them a new home.
this is why we can’t have nice things
goldfish are plant murderers
ugh seriously I try to do nice things for them and decorate their tank for Easter and how do they thank me??
BY RUINING EVERYTHING
Haha oh gosh, such a familiar sight!
For eight months, our Firefly has been laying on the bottom of the tank with swim bladder disorder. He ate and pooped, but could not swim. After trying every remedy I could find, Today i made him his own flotation device, and it is working wonderfully. Once again he can move around the tank and play with his buddy ‘Peaches”- Imgur
It’s a pity that goldfish is just going to have a big wound where the device is touching it within a week. Also that it’s pretty stunted and the tank doesn’t look suitable for the single tail in the background at all. Not really good news unfortunately :/
