Next project will be setting up firstly my 10 gal. tank and then creating a small corner pond with fountain. Small projects, big dreams!
Never put Gurami with Goldfish, unless you plan on teaching 'Goldie' brail! And, whoever came up with the name 'Angel-fish' for a fish like that, they are soooo sneaky.
Guppy, Goldfish (fantail, calico, comet, red-cap, moor), Koi, Gurami, Tin-foil, Red-fin shark, Angel.
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
