Goldfish Koi chat is a place for lighthearted goldfish chat

Goldfish Koi chat is a place we can meet and chat about our goldfish. Goldfish keepers love talking about goldfish, however, our non goldfish keeper friends and family get tired of the topic. Here, we can go on and on without getting a sigh or an eye roll. The hobby quickly becomes an obsession. Some of us can’t get enough

We love our goldfish, and we want to learn everything about them, even so, we also enjoy telling someone about the water spill or the fish that hovers over the jets. Maybe we don’t carry photos of them in our wallets, but they’re always on our mind

We keep goldfish for different reasons, but when it comes down to it, we’re all passionate about our fish. Goldfish, just like our other pets develop personalities. The bashful goldfish hides when we have visitors, however, the outgoing goldfish is curious, and enjoys getting their attention

Goldfish bond to their tank mates as well as their keepers. They have a wide range of emotions

Thanksgiving dinner goldfish? Why not? With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we should give our goldfish and Koi a reason to be thankful. Pumpkin and sweet potato; a favorite and long time tradition served for dinner at Grandma's house in most of the US. Thanksgiving dinner goldfish is fun and easy to serve, and your fish love it Maybe your family buys frozen pie and use canned sweet potato, containing additional ingredients that aren't good for goldfish (or people either for that matter) but if you're cooking from scratch, save some for the fish. I just love a baked sweet potato, and so do my goldfish. Cut an end off before buttering, wrap it in plastic wrap, and stick it in the fridge. Feed it once a day for five days, and toss the remaining; just to be safe Thanksgiving dinner for our fish Pumpkin is a little more difficult. Canned pumpkin is too soft and clouds the water before the fish can eat it, but a fresh pumpkin is a different story Cut the pumpkin in half and remove by scraping the seeds from the core. Slice the pumpkin into two to three inch sections, and bake at 350 degrees until soft. After the pumpkin cools, scoop the meat away from the skin,. Toss the skin Before pureeing, save a chunk for the fish. Wrap five meals worth in plastic wrap and store in the fridge If you've never made a pumpkin pie from scratch, better find a good recipe before starting. Your family enjoy the pie and your efforts Cut both the pumpkin and or the potato into bite size pieces before serving to your good for you and the fish Thanksgiving dinner for our fish?

Goldfish House Cleaning

Koi Goldfish house cleaning should be a part of our weekly maintenance Just like the house you live in, your goldfish house gets cluttered and dirty over time. There's more to goldfish house cleaning than a water change. Even though you regularly vacuum the gravel and exchange water, grunge builds up, hiding under the items in your aquarium or pond When we vacuum our floors, the dust bunnies under the couch often go unnoticed, the gunk on top of the fridge forgotten and the ring around the tub left for another day. We all do it, and that's okay. There are more important things than having a perfectly clean home, but we also know that when our house is dirty, it can effect our health, and the same is true with our goldfish Goldfish house cleaning Make it a point to do a thorough cleaning in your fish house at least once a month. No, this doesn't mean performing a 100% water change. It means lift those decorations and vacuum beneath them. If they're hollow, rinse in steaming hot water to destroy any bad bacteria building up in the cavity; a favorite spot for bad bugs Koi house cleaning The roots of plants, real or fake are another favorite location for bad bugs. Pull your plants from the gravel or from their container and give them a dip in salt water. Real plants harboring bad bugs will wither and die in a short time, which leads to an unhealthy environment Goldfish house cleaning If you have pond pumps, lift the pump and gravel beneath it or move it a few inches A clean fish house is a healthy fish house you've heard it said, but don't over clean. Waste is the foundation of a natural ecosystem. One of the biggest mistakes goldfish keepers make is performing 100% water changes and cleaning their filters and pumps 10 Steps to Goldfish and Koi Keeping All rights Author: Brenda Rand
