Photo Caption:My wonderful common goldfish. I have them in a 75 Gallon with four dojo loaches. To regular dojos and 2 gold. The goldfish are about 3 years old. Once on the fourth of July the power went out here and it was over 100 dg according to the thermometer on the goldfish tank because the air conditioner was not working. So I got a straw and blew bubbles till I passed out in my room from 12-3 am and constantly got big bags of what ice was left over in the freezer and put them in the tank to do my best to save the goldfish. After the first day and night I went to buy a battery operated air pump and the rest survived. I lost 7 fish to that black out and 2 goldfish. These are the remaining two. And now they are nice happy and big! thanks
About Yourself: I have been in the hobby of aquariums and such my whole life so about 25 years. I used to work in a LFS and am very learned on the subject. I even make green water. ;-) I have had every major kind of tank and now just like to dabble it's funny I just purchased a brand spakin new 75 for my two feeder goldies. How bad is that? I have 8 tanks.
