    I never knew they needed so much veggies! Thank you.

    Oh okay that makes sense. So by feeding them veggies, their overall protein intake isn't 34%, just the pellet part. How often should goldfish be fed veggies?

    Well I looked into NLS goldfish formula, but it looks like it's meat based like the betta formula, and isn't goldfish food supposed to have under 30% protein? The goldfish formula has 34%, which is only 3 percent less than the betta formula...

    Hello koimaiden, I was just wondering... What are the best commercially prepared goldfish pellets?

    My mom went way back when she was in college but no one else in the family has. And hahaha, yeah, it's not a stereotype. You should hear my mom. Even though she never lived in Minnesota, ohmigosh, she still has the accent. "Ohhh ya!" Since my mom's health is not very good, I don't think we'll go anytime soon but someday I'd like to. I know my extremely Swedish brother would like to go. Then again, maybe he has. He doesn't tell us things. o.O Me, since I'm adopted, not quite so much but I'd still like to see the countryside.

    Let's see. Her dad came from Sweden when he was 8 and lived in Minnesota, then they came to CA and became rice farmers. Uhm, she says his family is from Guttenberg and something that begins with L and vaguely sounds like "lin-chipping." Southern Sweden, she says.

    Ooh! Overseas! Where are you going?

    Someone on here told me water lettuce is illegal. I think water hyacinth is on its way because a while ago the news did a piece about water hyacinth choking the waterways in the Sacramento Delta.

    That's interesting that Japanese breeders have soft water. Hmm . . . that's interesting. All this time I thought my hose water was really hard. Thank goodness Sparky doesn't care what his water is, as long as it's clean. Nice, easy-care Sparky. :D

    Hopefully going to get more water hyacinth to help with the nitrates. Oh these fish of ours, how they love to make us fret.

    The hose water is KH 8, I believe, and GH 11. It's weird because all the water testing strips say that is very hard and yet a plant book says it's soft. Have you ever heard of using montmorillonite clay to provide minerals for koi? Wondering if I should get some when I order the Koi Kastle from Fosters and Smith.
