Greetings fellowmen!
Hello fellowmen.

I was refered to the forum by my brother who is also a member of the forum. I have 2 goldfish, feedme and freckles. I upgraded them to a 55g tank reciently. Feedme lived in a bowl and then a 5g tank years before I got him from a friend, and freckles lived in a small bowl for a long time. I got my 2 goldfish from someone who didn't want to care for them. They have been kept in less than ideal sized tanks, so I don't expect them to get alot bigger. Feedme is 5 3/4" and Freckles is about 2". I am not sure if they will outgrow the 55g tank, because of the years of stunted growth, but I can move them to a much bigger tank in afew years if need be. I have a filter rated for a 60g tank, but I plan to get another filter rated for a 60g tank in the near future.

I saw the message that says not to talk about aquariums, but I wouldn't really have anything to say if I didn't talk about my 2 goldfish. I don't think I have presented an issue (although you can PM me if something is wrong). I look foward to getting to know everyone on the forum. I have already heard about afew of you from my brother (good things only).'

Can't wait to meet some of you!:-)

Where's that message?? You can talk about aquariums all day (and night) here!
It's great that you joined TFK and how about a few pics of your goldies?? We all LOVE pics. ;-)

Oh here is the thread lol. My brother doesn't really have a good camera so I took some good pics of feedme. Oh, btw, BlackGoldfish is my brother so if he says anything weird please PM me (he can get carried away with topics).:-)

Anyway, here are some good pics of feedme!:-D

I told feedme to smile for the camera and this is what I got...
Smart goldfish.

Anyway, my brother said it was Ok to post some pics of his goldfish for him. He hasn't really had alot of free time, but hopefully (or I guess hopefully lol) he can be on it more. I did not get any good pics of that little freckles, because unlike feedme, freckles is camera-shy and hides in the back of the tank where I can't take a clear pic of the little guy.

Enjoy the pics!:-D
small fry,

LMAO! You really want us to snitch on him about his PMs? :crazy: You were so persistent in chat about this.:tongue:

They are skinny. Hope a variety of foods will fatten them up in no time. Clip green leafy vegetables round the clock for them to eat.

Thanks Lupin! My brother is busy today, but I will certainly pass on the message! Do you think they will grow much more? Feedme is at least 2 years old, do you think he will grow much more (I don't mean side-ways lol)? Maybe with a filter upgrade for double filtration the 2 will not out-grow the tank?

(btw, yes, my brother easily gets carried away with politics, and goverment stuff. Please don't "take advantage of that", he will not hesitate to talk about that stuff if he thinks I wont find out. He wont be offended by these statements because he knows what I am talking about.:-))

Lupin 02-28-2011 10:41 PM

I don't think they will grow anymore. They're already stunted.:sad:

No worries about me and your brother discussing politics. I can handle that. I happen to love arguing politics.:crazy:
