Agreed, they look like goldfish to me.
You guys are killing me! I have pretty much given up on Taros.
It look's like you've done a great job on a budget. I also built mine on a budget, but I'm hoping to change things up again before too long.
So excited to see the finished product, keep it coming!
I'd bite! I may have to find some more space to grow them in though!
I would sink them personally, but keep in mind the tubs will be very heavy to pull up from the "depths" in the spring.
I LOVE taro, but opted to stay out of them this year. I have had them two of the last 3 years and only had one survive the winter indoors of all the ones I had. I'm thinking there has got to be a...
I thought mint as well, except the leaves don't look quite right, and the last photo in particular does not look anything like mint. Not only that, but you'd smell the minty freshness from time to...
I like the pattern as well. It does appear to be male to me. I would guess the fins having the black in them (I forget the technical term) would not be good for show standards, but I'd be interested...
I love the scalation, sorry I can't help with your question though.
Maybe needs more sun?
You can give me yours Gander...
I want one of those Lotus. Which variety?
Good to hear. Now you can watch these guys grow and learn about what they will look like when they're older and learn which to cull early on. I am still learning myself, and didn't have to cull any...
I know there are plenty that will, but I bought some seeds from China a year and a half ago and had several grow a very nice plant and runners by the end of last year. All of them died. I had one...
I have had no eggs yet this year, but had quite a few in August last year. I pulled as many out as I could and put them in a large 200 gallon IBC tank. It was a flock spawn, so I didn't expect much...
I'm still trying to determine what happened to my 4 plants this past winter. They seeds from China that I started and they had gotten really big by the end of the season last year. I was hoping to...
Yes they'll eat the eggs. I didn't leave that many in my pond after my flock spawn, but what was there fed them well for a day or two.
Awesome!!!, I just found a bunch on some weeds in my garden. They seem to be attracted particularly to these weeds, so I know where to find some! I have roses too, they haven't touched them this year.
I like the goldfish pond waterfall feature.
Very sorry to hear!
Cool, thanks guys, maybe it was just the cold then. I wasn't prepared for the spawn, so I didn't even have the water ready which means I had to fill up the tank with hose water which would have been...
I did not. I was under the impression it happened before the hatch.
So, as some of you may remember, I had a flock spawn last fall and have a few babies that actually hatched. I think for a couple of reasons, I lost the majority of them.
The first and most likely...
Dirt just up to the top of the pallets? I would be very interested to see this completed.
Anyone want to try this again? I can't volunteer to head it up, but would be interested in seeing if someone could put it together for us. :praying:
I'll buy...how much? :shrug:
Seriously though, I like it! It's a tropical/hardy cross?
I think with enough beds and plants in those beds you could completely filter the water with the beds. I've found with my experience that I still have to do water changes and I've even considered...
Looks like you could use some more breeding pools! :D:
Beautiful Africans and Discus!
Sorry to hear...I'd gladly give you some fish if I were close enough!
Couldn't get a good shot of the Acei, but here's a few of the others.
I have ended up going towards Malawis now. I had two pairs of Julie's and 3 of the 4 died on me. I'm not sure what happened. I now have Albino Zebras, Yellow Labs, Acei and a single Cobalt Blue...
Does anyone have development photos of Hariwake, Showa, doitsu and standard Sanke, and Ogon?
Do you have any pictures? Unfortunately I can't help with your question, but I have often wondered about them and didn't think they'd make the winters here.
Any updates on these fry?
Lots of factors play into that. First, number of fish, second, size of pond, third, filtration setup, fourth, frequency of water changes, fifth, water temps, sixth, length of growing season. I'm sure...
I would agree they are all "pond fish" except the slightly better Kohaku. What genes would you say the others have? I know they aren't great examples by any means, but I'm trying to help a newby...
1. doitsu showa
4. doitsu aka matsuba
5. gin rin kohaku
6. aka bekko
These are my best guesses. They will be good ones to learn with. You'll find very quickly...
