I've seen a fish mope when its mate dies, and I've split up pairs to give the female a rest only to have the male go nuts with seemed excitement to have his female return to their tank again. What if there was something to it? You would be doing a good thing for all of them, really you will!!
I have mine in a 75 gallon and it's way too small for her! She needs a pond desperately but I need something deeper than 3 feet for wintering over and protection from raccoons. (I have heard that males grow what looks to be a bubble like appearance on their gill plates, females do not)
You can always start again with something tropical in the 29.
Well I also have a 20 gallon with tropicals. I'd think a 75 is plenty... :) I've never seen a raccoon so I'm not sure if we have them? I had 4 goldfish a tally, gave one to a pond, and the other one, my biggest male, who was white! Got stuck in a log decoration and when I got him out, he swallowed too much air, and I had to break his fins because they got stuck in that log, and his back was all red ;( it was really sad. I just harried him in a paper towel. Needless to say that log has been removed.
I mean a lot of people say that it's 20 gallons for one Goldie and 10 for every additional. Hmm... Sent from Petguide.com Free App
