Question about my Goldfishe(s)

Postby Bucki » Wed Sep 05, 2012 5:11 pm

Hi All

I hope I came to the right place for help.
Right ... I am not a fish-man (meaning, I have not much idea about fishes)
However, I recently purchased a whole unit fish tank, with heater, pump including 12 GoldFishe(s)

Anyway, I got it my room eventually ... and for some reason the fishes seem to stay together in a corner (most times)
and also they go to the top and make bubbles.

Please view the video: **Should be uploaded in next 10min **




Let me know what to do :(

Can I ask what size the tank is please ?

Are they common gold fish like the ones given away at fair grounds as prizes?

Fish tank is: 97cm Long x 38cm wide and about 50cm haigh
Do not think, its the size of the tank ...

They are goldfishes, and not give away.

what I ment with the fair ground is the ones they give away are common goldfish normally.

First off 10 goldfish in that size of tank is well over stocked as goldfish are massive waster produces.

Also you say heater gold fish should be kept in cold water (no heater)

if the fish at at the surface gasping it means you have no oxygen in the water.

This could be because you have them in warm water and not cold water and if you are not using the heater you need to pump air into the tank via a air stone etc.

As a rule of thumb goldfish need something like 10 gallons of water each you tank holds around 40 gallons but I my eyes goldfish should only be kept in ponds or massive fish tanks as they can grow 12" plus.

Have a read though this and it will double up on what I have said

Hi

The guy, where in bought it off said that he kept the heater on 28degree and maybr they r used to it by now?! However, i dont use the heater ... The water is room temperature .

Did u manage to look at the video?!

Yeh, currently, there is one pump making bubbles in the tank , the airstone is attached to it. I am also planning to make two pipes out of one (with a T junction) and hope this will be ok

Having said that, the pump filter (admit is not a big one either) also makes bubbles ... Should not that be enough?! I dnt think the water is too dirty cos i refilled tank 2 days ago.
