    Yes, I was looking at this month's issue and I wish I could have it now. They have an article on the worst community fin nippers. :D But then again, they always have awesome articles.

    Go to the PFK site, click "subscribe" then "more info" and "international offers"
    62 pounds for a year, which is 13 issues I believe. Around $100. I think it's a pretty chunky magazine. They deliver it by airmail, but that cost might be included since it costs more than ordering in the UK. I might ask for a subscription for Christmas.

    I remember you saying you can't get PFK magazine shipped to the states?
    Yes you can. :D

    That's a good idea. If not, the neighbors do have a koi pond too, although it's kinda small and overstocked. Who knows what they feed their koi. Thanks for the idea. :)

    Thanks Izzy, that does put my mind at ease about feeding them that, and the temp has been staying around 65 F so it's not too cold to feed it either. I kinda like it better too. The poop stays together longer, making it easier to suck out. Now what to do with a bag of Fosters and Smith koi food and a jug of treats they won't eat . . .

    Hey Izzy, thanks for the report. You're right, the post did need to be in a different place. :)

    And in other news, I've given up trying to get Koichiro and Saiyo to eat floating food. It just floated until it sank and then it rotted. Sigh.

    You wrote on your page and I just saw this. Woops. That's pretty big! I'd just feel really bad if they lost the ability to swim. The pearscales would seem less likely to catch other fish on the other hand. Celestial pearl danios, zebra loaches and pearlscales :D I like it.

    Actually pearlscales can get softball sized! Goldfish growth is a combination of diet, water quality, and genetics. Also I don't think they can swim well either. They're not my favorite breed, so I don't know too much about them. A 70 gal would be a great goldfish tank! Goldies can live with other coolwater fish. I've seen people keep them with danio before. Most of the time, the danio are fast enough to outrun the fancies.

    I saw three adorable pearlscales at the LFS. As long as they didn't become these huge bubbles that can't swim that'd be cool. Can goldies live with other coldwater fish? If I get a job for the summer I could get a 70ish gallon for free. Would they eat tiny celestial danios?

    Just curious, do koi and goldies breed at random? Never heard anything about them breeding..
    I really want a 40 gallon, with 3 goldies, named Pascal, Parker and Penelope. I just imagined it one day, maybe it's a sign.
