Gratiot Passed

I think its just too hot in this apartment for goldfish. The water checked out but poor little fry guy just didn't make it. He was fine when I went off to work. The experiment will restart in California. :) Until then, be safe, be happy and rest easy little friend

Ypsi is no longer with us

Ypsilanti didnt make it through my work shift. He was gone when I came home. Im sad but not surprised, he was very stressed and hiding a lot. plus he was a feeder from an unhealthy batch. So hopefully from now on its just Gratiot, which really is better for the experiment. That tiny little fry is happy as a clam though!

Tank Upgrade and Bad Choices :)

Ok, first things first, Tiny's name is now Gratiot! Yay! (Grat-chiot) Gratiot now had a friend, Ypsilanti! Bad choice? maybe. I dont need another common, but I couldnt just leave this guy:

He's superunique looking, and about 1.5 inches long, so you can see how tiny Gratiot really is

Things are looking good on the fish front!

Not Much to Report

Tiny is doing well, though he needs a real name. He's eating and growing. I'll post pictures soon. Water parameters look good, and I got him a little castle! :) So things are going well

Two Spot is gone

Tiny is still strong though. But the larger one with two spots passes today. He had been hiding today, and his belly looks odd, even in the healthy looking pictures. But the little guy is super healthy! Its also been crazy amounts of hot... bummer. Tiny needs a real name! Any ideas?

Day Three

Hello all! So the babies are already starting to grow! I don't think I mentioned before, but the one with 2 spots and the longer tail was *just* bigger then the one spot and short tail. They are getting friendly-er as well! Im going to be increasing their feeding schedual, from 2X a day to 3-4 is I can swing it.

I'm getting advise on moving from my old beloved forum Koko's Goldfish World. If you ever have goldfish questions their the people!

Day Two- All is well

The little guys are swimming around and seem happy. I am feeding API goldfish because I got it for free at work. He he! When they get larger I plan on switching them to a Hikari formula unless someone has a better suggestion. So not much exciting :) By the way, my goldies are the size of this little pig toy.

Day Two pictures!

What can you get for $0.13?

I know the answer to this whole experiment, but I want people to see, first hand what happens to feeder fish who don't get fed. All of us has prolly flushed thousands of these poor little guys over the years as failed carnival pets, bowl obsessions and what ever else. Of course this is a terrible time for me, as Im about to move cross country, but we'll also see how goldfish travel! :) So here are my little guys, assuming they live.

Their about half an inch long today. They are currently in a 3 gallon critter keeper with a Tetra 3i. When we move they will be moved into a much bigger tank :) Lets see what happens!
