This is just wrong. There's no such thing as perfect. How would you assume it was perfect when there are lots of factors that interfere with the water parameters?

I'm still not going to recommend goldfish in a 10 gallons. It's way too small for a single goldfish.

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.

Oh ok, Musho. Now if only Kathryn is online, then she can offer to help you with the newts. She seems to be the only member here who keeps newts right now.

But I did not try to scold you on that goldfish issue. I was giving you some information you may need. In no way would I ever think you were torturing the goldfish. It is a common mistake which we usually have when we start the hobby but most of us want to avoid you from getting problems hence we correct most of the things you posted.:) Lol...Don't worry too much. There's no mauling needed. We correct the mistakes so you, guys, won't have a difficult time trying to solve the problems if ever they arise.:)

Have a good time.

im sorry im a bit jumpy from the last forum the moderators were nasty... i just get a bit frustrated when people tell me something already know. i dont like snapping at people but when someone is telling you something you have heard again and again and are already in the process of fixing the problem its a bit irritating. sorry for sounding angry or whatever... hope there are no hard feelings.

Nature... mmmmmm.

Oh, of course not.:) No hard feelings here either.:) I understand people are frustrated when they get turned off by the same replies from several people.:)

Lol...Not sure if you really want a tarantula escaping and running around your house.
