the kids would love a clown fish and i love the puffer fish and the sea horses are really sweet but i just dont feel i would be able to get the mix right of salt to water ratio.

did u float the bag in the tank for about half an hour before u releasted them in to tank.its really odd cos gold fish are really hardy.if u want u can tell me about your tank set up and what happened to the fish before they died eg did they have any white spots and i could try to help you keep happy healthy gold fish.

yip i floated the bag for 30 mins, i got oxygen tablets and i didnt over do them either kept to what it said on the box and rinsed the stones about half a dozen times before putting them in, i didnt over feed
they didnt have white spots on them but some of them had white stuff on them but it was more like sheet over them not spots, i followed the intructions word for word for every thing still no joy, yet my sister has had the same gold fish for 7 years now, i didnt know they could live that long so i dont know what im doing wrong

did u use white spot treatment cos sometimes it looks more like a white sheet than a spot.when u have floated the bag for half an hour try mixing some of your tank water with the water in the bag leave for another half an hour then put the fish and the water into tank.put weekly clean drops into the water this removes the toxics out of the water between cleans if u dont have a filter.some cold water fish dont like the water straight after its been cleaned out cos its to cold so its best to leave water to get to room temp before putting them back.my black moor used to float on his side if the water was to cold so now he is happy cos he lives in my tropical tank so he never gets cold he has had white spot as its called four times and ive cured him everytime but sadly last time he had it he lost the sight in one eye but he still happly swims round my tank.hope this helps if not ill think what else i can do to help.

i had the the drops to clean the water and some drops for when they were ill, i got them off the man at the pet shop when i told him about the white stuff on them, when i had to clean the tank out i used to put water in our spare tank the night before so it wouldnt be too cold for them,
i tell ya im cursed, im never to own a fish or it will perrish

I don't blame you for not trying again Flossy.
Goldfish usually are a very hardy fish.

Ahhh so not everything expires under your touch!
That's good to hear!

My brother had a rat (one of many that we had) when we were kids...his name was Sugarplum apple pie.
Sugar for short.
