Freeze-Dried Bloodworms

Today I fed my fish freeze-dried bloodworms, their first time ever having them. They went NUTS! They love the stuff, now every time I open the lid they come up to see me, which is fantastic!

It was funny though, they're still adjusting and I wanted to try to feed them out of my hand...you could see the hesitation, but they were like screw it these are delicious!

A goldfish living with your cichids? COOL! :D

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

It's actually becoming quite funny to me, I think they're all living together that as the cichlids grow they still won't try to eat him. The Blood Parrot is about twice his size, so there is no reason for her not to eat the goldfish. The oscars are only slightly bigger, but don't even nibble. It makes for a really interesting tank when people look in and go, "Is that a goldfish!?"

Yeah, I'd love to see him go; especially if they eat him. But it isn't looking like it, and I can't just flush him. Nobody I know would want it, so he's just a part of the disfunctional family haha

You can't try flushing a fish. That is a step up to cruelty.
It's best that you give him another tank or back to the lfs.:) Or maybe I'd rather give him to a friend who has a pond.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

That's what I'm saying, lol. That's clearly not an option! He'll continue to live in the tank until nature takes its course!

I found out that my girlfriend's cousin wants a goldfish for her son, so I gave no delay to giving her my goldfish, goldfish bowl, fresh food, and some chemicals to dechlorinize the water!

Then my gf bought another Blood Parrot Cichlid, so I will have to change out 40% of the water one more time per week, but hey....she gave the go ahead for a big aquarium upgrade in a couple months :P
