I have had my 4 Tin Foil Barbs for 6 months or so, and they have grown almost 6 inches! They are very hardy fish, good eaters, and fun tank mates. I currently have the barbs, 15 diamond tetras, a ropefish, 2 clown loaches, fiddler crab, and a pictus catfish in a 75 gallon tank. One additional note: these guys eat so much you have to be creative with their food to keep form going broke. I have a planted tank, and instead of throwing away plants that get too big, or any clippings i take from them, I feed them to the barbs. Also they love liver, which is really cheap at the supermarket. Cut up a beef liver into small squares, and throw them in the freezer. The barbs will love these.

I have 2 black moors and a goldfish in a tank together. I have had them for about a year now. The weirdest thing happened though. I had the two black moors first. Then I added a goldfish about the same size as them to the tank a few months later. Ever since then the black moors scales started changing colors and now one is completely gold, with only black around his eyes.(kinda looks like he has eyeliner on) Any way, they are great pets, they swim around a lot and are easy to care for.

My two gourami grew real fast and big in my small fish pond. In two years they grew from about 4 ins to more than 12 inches. They are really sociable and live harmoniously with the many ordinary koi fish and flower horns. I added another two small ones, and like wise they grew to the same sizes. They like the koi pellets, and occasionally I saw them jumping and nipping at leaves located just above the water.

I have 7 fantail goldfish and I think they are the best type of fish to have. And they all look so adorable!

I have a 35 gallon tank and have a nice Red and white Ryukin who went from the purchase size of medium to a nice 8 inches now!His buddies in the 35 gallon are a calico telescope named Big Eye and a calico pearlscale named Fatso. I also just bought a medium calico ryukin in my twenty gallon high tank, and his/her buddy is a nice all white with orange fins ryukin who is almost full size (6 inches now). I recommed the Ryukin goldfish not only because they are beautiful and peaceful, but they have alot of personality!

I have had up to 30 Comet goldfish at a time, and I love them! Contrary to popular belief, they live longer than a week. Ive had my feeder comets for a year, and they are still going strong! I do not believe they are a good beginner fish, because they require a lot of cleaning. they have fast metabolisms, so they are constantly eating and extricating. I have two undergravel filters and one power filter in my ten gallon tank, and that seems to be the minimum to keep the water clear for two weeks. Then I do a partial water change. There are currently ten small comets and shubun comets in there. I do not believe in keeping them in "goldfish bowls" either, unless you are willing to clean them out every other day! That would be hard on the fish, so I dont suggest it. Those of you who keep healthy goldfish, enjoy!
