    I have tanks with corydoras and I love to watch them, they are so active! Hmm do the dwarf guaramis school? or are they like betta's where you can keep one male in the tank and then a bunch of peaceful schooling fish?

    Oh okay! yeah I havent seen panda goldfish until recently petco got them in near my school. I am looking for a stand. Hopefully a free one lol! Anywho, thanks for the info! I don't think I'll be keeping goldfish until I have a big enough tank. I kinda do wish they could be kept in smaller tanks, but after reading I'm pretty sure I wont own one for a while. I'll stick with my bettas. For a 30 , what non betta species do you think would be good? I want to have a nicely stocked tank.

    Okay. I just saw this species called panda goldfish? Omg they were adorable! Anyways hmm I think I may just back off the goldfish then. I love your koi pond. I really wish I could build one of those! My yard is way too small lol. What size a tank would you recommend for like 4 or 5 goldfish a 75 gal? After reading up I realize how terrible these fish have it. Being sold with bowls named after them. Ugh!

    Hey, I have a 29.9 gal tank, And I was wondering how many goldfish would you put in a tank that size if any at all. I'm just researching other species because I have a 29.9 gal that is sitting unused I may just grab a stand for it and set it up. I love your blog by the way it is awesome! I read it over a bunch of times.

    Curious, where did you read that dwarf gourami iridovirus is transferable between species? I've always thought that but someone on TFK said it's exclusive to dwarf gourami, as do a few websites. Not sure what to think right now.

    I found the most awesome pond/koi store! The guy is super knowledgeable and has a bunch of champion koi. He told me that I can't put fish directly into a galvanized steel tank because it'll leech metals. I have to coat it with some kind of special rubber first to make it inert. So as soon as I do that and let it set, I can fill it up! Yay!

    Sorry, busting in on your conversation. Just gotta say I love TFH. I just wish it wasn't so expensive to subscribe to. I subscribe to Aquarium Fish International 'cause I got a $5 deal on Amazon. Both are good but I like David Boruchowitz, the editor-in-chief of TFH. I have half of his books and his betta book helped me get off to the right start.
