"goldfish-proofing" an aquarium
Hi guys! I’m super excited to announce the second ever Aquariadise giveaway.
I know you all love Marimo balls as much as I do, so I teamed up with The Shrimp Farm to give away three! They’re super easy to care for, look adorable and do well in almost every aquarium setup. And if you don’t have an aquarium (yet), don’t worry! They can also be kept in a bowl or vase.
To enter, you just have to be an Aquariadise subscriber. You can subscribe at the official giveaway post! If you’re already subscribed are automatically entered (I love you existing subscribers!). People who also reblog this post get an extra entry, so don’t forget to reblog.
Happy fishkeeping everyone! ♥

A fish at least partially out of water is another giant house pet.
Ansel says he might consider taking a previous napkin with a large kitten on it when he goes back to school next week, but that this one is just too weird.
TO ANY GOLDFISH KEEPERS IN THE TUMBLR FISH COMMUNITY:
I’m afraid that I have to rehome my ranchu, Scylla. At this point in my life, I’m not able to care for her.
She’s been living in a cycled 55 gallon tank with a SunSun 304B filter for about four months. I change 40 percent of the water weekly. She primarily eats Repashy soylent green, but she gets oatmeal and peas once a week. Unfortunately, she only hand feeds, but she’s not shy.
I’d prefer to give her to someone in the Bay Area, but I may pay for shipping if it seems like she’ll have a good home.
Signal boosting would be appreciated.
Aww I’d love to adopt her but I live across the globe. Someone go for it!
The Bean ft. Her Wen
Okay. I’m going to put this here because I’m getting really frustrated. So I have these two baby fantail goldfish living in a 29gal by themselves, and one of them just WILL NOT STOP GULPING AT THE SURFACE. She does it mostly after she eats and she just won’t stop. They have plenty of surface movement from the filter, and they have a long air stone, so I don’t think it’s an oxygen thing. Their water parameters are always ammonia: 0, Nitrite: 0, and Nitrate: 5-10, so I don’t think that’s it either. They eat pre-soaked sinking pellets as well as frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp once a week. I was given a suggestion to check her for anemia, but her gills look a healthy red/pink colour to me. She’s done this ever since I got her in June but I feel like it’s gotten worse lately. It’s seriously stressing me out. Does anyone have any ideas?
It could definitely be the food, you could try switching to gel food for a while!

What’s the selective advantage of having enormous, fluid-filled sacs under your eyes? None, really. Bubble eyes are a variety of goldfish whose mutation was selected for by breeders for enjoyment in an aquarium setting. These fish wouldn’t make it very long in the wild.
