Snap happy

A few pics of my fish. They don't hold still and smile.
My water is a little cloudy as I cleaned and moved the tank around today. It should clear up with a few pwc's.

That's a lot of goldfish....Especially comets and commons. They get a foot long you know. Even fancy gold fish can approach 8 inches. I had a 14" shubunkin before he died of old age... ):

Beautiful tank! I really like the stones that you used! They don't overcrowd your tank and flow nicely w/ your plants!

I know very little about Goldfish, so I have no comment in regards to overstocking. They look healthy and happy though!

Thanks. Yeah my tank is way overstocked but I'm only new at looking after fish and so far have managed to do just about everything wrong.

Didn't cycle the tank, overstocked and didn't research my fish before we got them.

Only lost 2gold fish so far.
Still don't have a test kit but waiting for payday and ill get one.
Got the LFS to check my water the other day.
Ph spot on 7.0
Ammonia - 1.00ppm - daily major wc for 3 days so far.
Kh - a bit unstable but got a booster.

Fingers crossed I think the rest should make it ok.

It happens, Jayjsizzle. The worst thing you could do at this point is get discouraged. A lot of people make mistakes in the beginning... I know I did! lol I'm sure that once you complete your cycle, your fishes will appreciate your dedication to them and reward you with many years of enjoyment!

As far as the fish that will eventually outgrow your tank, perhaps you can rehome them, or if they were a recent purchase, return them to your LFS?

I guess that answered my question whether you were going to rehome them or not. lol

You must really be fond of your fishes to get another tank in order to keep them. Best of luck!
