His water hasn't been changed since Saturday. Hopefully all is well when we go get him today. I'm glad to have him come home finally.

On my way home with a fish. I'm assuming my fighter died and they replaced him so I wouldn't notice because otherwise he has magically re-grown his fins and the burns have gone away since I saw him last.... This isn't the same fish I've been fighting to save.

So, I walked in to find my 10 gallon spewing water onto the floor. I quickly got the water line below the leak and threw towels onto the floor. I started filling up the 20 gallon for Daiquiri (the goldfish) and guess what doesn't hold water. So poor Daiquiri has been reduced to a 1 gallon bowl until I can get more silicone to reseal the tanks. I stole a Java Fern from my betta tank to put in with her to help with water but she will be getting 150-200% WC a day now. She seems to be enjoying the bowl, regardless of the huge elephant decoration that's siliconed in taking up a lot of swimming room. I wouldn't have taken her home if I knew she would have to go in this bowl.

Ricky, at night the temp in our room (the only place the bowl can go) drops to about 65F, will she be okay? It's 75 in here during the day. I don't have any heaters small enough for the bowl and my husband just worked a 25 hour week so she's kinda stuck heaterless. /:

Get yourself a cheap rubber maid tub... a 30 gallon one will work in a pinch until you can fix the tank...
that water temp shouldn't bother the goldie..mine live outside all winter under the ice...

We can't get a tub right now. We have one but upon inspecting it, there's a crack in one of the corners. /: I'm glad the temp won't bother her. She's very active and looks healthy other than a white spot on her tail but it looks like an imperfection rather than a disease. My husband won't let me name her Daiquiri (I'm 7 months pregnant and DYING for one) so he insisted he name her. (Oh dear) I have to say, when I get a tank fixed in going to miss her being on my nightstand. She's so cute!

as a fathrer of 4 I speak from experience...tell your husband that because you are carrying his child.. he should give you what you want ... so if you can't have the real thing(Daiquiri).. at least let you name the fish

I learned a long....long time ago.. pregneant women are NOT to be triffled with!

glad you have a plan for the fish... did the original owners "fess up" yet to what really transpired?

I can't even have one after she's born because we're feeding naturally.

The fish keeps swimming around, sifting the sand and such, then she will sit on the bottom or the plant and not move for 5 minutes or so. Then she's back up swimming again. I know it's not water quality, she's been in the bowl for an hour. Could it be oxygen issues? Should I put her in with the mollies living in the 10 gallon? I'm not worried about the mollies, they are being used to cycle. There is at least a filter on the 10 gallon and about 5-6 gallons of water in it after the spill.

I went ahead and moved her to the ten gallon. She started to stop breathing for way too long periods. I'm working on reselling the 20 right now.

She's in the 20 now. The "leak" was water my friend spilled. -rolls eyes- never trust someone else to do your work.
