Goldfish 911

We are experts in diagnosing the majority of issues that plague goldfish and Koi, however, we are also experts in bringing these fish back to good health. We leave it up you to take our advice and follow our instructions closely, but if you do, the reward is great. Compared to the average instructions found on goldfish care, our methods may seem strange. The proof is in the pudding

Excellent goldfish health depends on excellent water quality, and this is why we focus heavily on their care and maintenance. The theories we teach work with Mother Nature, instead of against her, as most information floating around about goldfish

The pet shop shelves are filled with various medications. Made up of dangerous chemicals, when used, they often push sick fish over the edge. In most cases the sick fish is suffering from poor feeding habits, improper maintenance or unhealthy water. Top these types of issues off with chemicals, and the prognosis is negative

Scroll through our many pages of posts and articles. Check out the books we offer that contain all of the information on our site. Learn everything you can about your goldfish and Koi by reading the 10 Steps to Goldfish Keeping

Check out shop. We sell organic remedies for just about anything that ails your fish. The remedies first started out as treatments and tonics we recommended on our old site. By demand, we started bottling them for your convenience, and now it’s become our passion. It’s our goal to put our remedies on the shelves of every pet shop, giving the consumer another option from the dangerous medications commonly sold

Dying goldfish

The goldfish and Koi industry have used and abused our fish by recommending chemically based products. The very products you believe are helping your fish are slowly killing them. Most fish that survive the nitrogen cycle will die from organ failure. Don’t let this happen to your fish

Don’t be a part of the problem by keeping your fish in an aquarium designed for tropical fish. If our fish are to thrive in captivity, we have to compromise with their set up. These fish we’ve been keeping in bowls came from the icy cold rivers in China. They may look fancy on the outside, however, on the inside, they’re still goldfish

Having no core body temperature, these cold blooded fish need cold water rich in minerals and oxygen

People buy goldfish because they have been led to believe they are cheap to keep. Clean the fish water when it looks dirty and feed the fish; simple. Goldfish are simple, however, the ecosystem you will need to create for them is complex. Goldfish make waste, and lots of it. Waste produces a dangerous toxin, ammonia. When ammonia is present beneficial bacteria form to feed on it, converting ammonia into nitrites, another dangerous toxin. When nitrites are present, another type of friendly bug forms to feed on it. These organisms convert nitrites into nitrates. Nitrates are the final toxin to be converted in what we call the nitrogen cycle

Help goldfish

Nitrate is a safe toxin in low amounts

Fish keepers refer to nitrates as the end result of the nitrogen cycle, however, this isn’t true. Algae forms to feed on nitrates when present, keeping levels safe for our fish. This plant is a nutritious and delicious food source, representing the end and the beginning of the nitrogen cycle

    You have pond pumps; right? I don’t know how long it’s been since you’ve experienced the cycling process, but it’s a misery. I have a couple of small ice chests; one for the fish; one for the pumps. Luckily my moves have been short distances, and I haven’t needed a cooling unit. I just chill the water before my departure

    One ice chest has a hole drilled in the top for the cords of the pumps

    In your case, because you’ll have only the one cooling unit, it will be necessary for the pumps and the fish to travel together. Beneficial bacteria can also be placed in dormancy just like our fish. You won’t have to perform water changes or feed the fish if the temps can be kept close to 45f

    The hole in the top of the container also helps the water breathe. Even though the fish will be dormant, they’ll still need small amounts of oxygen. We’ll discuss

    When does this move take place?

    The fact that you can’t get the emails from the archived site really REALLY sucks! You had a good thing going on … I think you still do, just that losing so many members affects the movement on the site… But I’m sure you’ll be up there in numbers again in no time 🙂

    As for the cooler, it goes down to 40F below ambient temp. It was 91F today so it would have gone down to about 50…

    I was considering a regular 48q cooler but i have no ac in my car and no way to maintain ice bottles to keep them cool. I figured with a thermometer i can keep an eye on the temp and unplug the unit if out gets too cold…

    Thanks for the kudos

    I would do a mass emailing except our old members are listed on our old site, and even though I’ve managed for us to keep the old forum as archives, there’s no way to send mass emails now, and for some reason the contact info doesn’t show up on the old member ID now. We’ll just have to hope that like you, they don’t forget us

    That’s quite a journey, but I’m glad to hear you’re taking the fish. Most folks start looking to rehome them as soon as they know they’re moving. Niles and Frazier. LOL

    How cold will the electric cooler get?

  4. nanu September 16, 2016 at 7:44 am

    By the way, could i bounce some questions off you regarding the move…lik what your thoughts are on an electric cooler for the fish vs 5 gal buckets…sine my fish are about 8-10 inches long now.

    Do you prefer i post this online?

    Heya Venus! Glad i was able to get through and that the site is still moving along. Have you considered standing a mass email to let everyone know the status? Just a thought…

    Niles and Frazier are well thank you! The book i printed from the old site when Daphne was dying has become my fishkeeping bible!

    We are setting up to move from FL to TX in a week. I was excited to see the instructions posted on the site!

    You guys have been a blessing!

    Nanu, it’s nice to see an old friend. Our website was being held hostage by a negligent host, but we’ve managed to move it over to a new server

    Most of our members have abandoned ship, and I can’t say as I blame them. The site was up and down for several months after being down during the reconstruction. Hopefully, our troubles are over; knock on wood lol

    Hope all is well with you and the fish

    Hi all… Just seeing if the site was active. Came by a couple of times but couldn’t log on. Hope everyone’s good 🙂 :bye:
