Another hello, but from Spain
#1
An absolute beginner. I rescued some gold fish eggs from our pond and put then in an old tank. From the originals I have 7 and decided to get a small aquarium. I bought a 60l tank kit and put them in and have started to plant it. Some of the plants are not doing too well, I'll post a question elsewhere. The gold fish are an experiment. They will be evicted later back into the pond. I think I'm going to go down the cold water route but not yet finally decided. I'm looking forward to learning more from you gurus and hope I can contribute something.

Hello and welcome Mito Smile
Glad the goldies will be going back to the pond once they’ve grown, they get too big for most small tanks or suffer from stunted growth issues.
It is possible the goldies are eating the plants (they are known to Wink)

PS Annie is from Spain as well, wherever she’s hiding Big Grin

Hi and welcome.

How big have the babies got? As said above the plants may be getting eaten by the goldies. They are notorious for it.

Tell us more about your setup (or pictures, we like pictures) and we might be able to help.

Also glad to hear the babies will be going back into a pond. Far too many are kept in too small tanks so good on you Smile
