    Tank is way to small. Shubunkins will get large.  Also not a good mix with danios.

    Ok. What will happen if I mix Shubunkin with Danio? Actually I have 2 aquariums, the other one is full of guppies. Sorry for the late reply :)
  • Jeremy Roche - 2013-01-12
    The Shubunkin will more then likely start attacking the danios.  They also produce a large amount of ammonia make the condition hard for the danios to handle.  Goldfish are best to keep with goldfish.

    ok. Thanks :)

recently my cousin gave me an oranda goldfish about 3' long, its flowing fins and tails all being nipped short by a parrot fish and an oscar,(i was mad when i heard that he had kept the poor goldfish with those totally incompatible fish,but the damage was already done!). now it has minimum fins, though it can swim about quite well. it has become friendly with my other goldfishes as well. i feed them flake foods,frozen blood worms and dried tube worms .my question is will its tail and fins grow back? it was originally a cross breed of veiltail and oranda and it had a beautiful flowing tail.

    The tail fin should grow back, as long as the caudal peduncle (tail base) has not been damaged. It may not be as decorative as it was before however, you'll have to wait and see on that.

    Could be constipated.  Try some epsom salt and frozen peas.

I just bought a large oranda, I think he is about 2 years or older. He is about 5.5 inches and has a large wen. His wen covers his eyes and as much food as I have givin him I am concerned he isn't able to see the food and isn't eating. Any suggestions ? I'm using goldfish flakes. -thanks! :)

    What size tank? Filtration?  You may want to have the water tested, a local pet shop will normally do it for you if a water sample if brought in.  Was the tank cycled before adding the fish?  Air stone in tank?

I noticed that my redcap was missing it's eyes...what a shock. There are only 5 fish in my 55 gallon tank. The other fish 1 Moor 1 Khoi and 2 bottom dwellers are all fine. Is it a internal parasite, I'm stunned.

    Could have been a bottom dweller.  What do you have?
  • Roy - 2012-12-30
    It is not very advisable to keep koi carp with gold fishes although some people say it is safe. if koi is not fed properly they will eat up gold fish eye. Eye will not be missing until it is severe fungal / parasitic infection.

My black moor goldfish is beginning to develop gold markings. In fact it has more gold than black colouring on its body. There is a second black moor in the tank and it doesn't seem to have the same problem. Can anyone tell me why this change of colour.

    That is totally normal.  Black is not a real stable color with goldfish.

I just purchased 2 calico goldfish to put in my 50 gal tank. I have 2 black moores in there also,but they keep picking on the calicos, easpecially the littler one. They chase it by its tail. Is there a reason or are they playing?

    Keep an eye on them and see if it gets worse or if their fins start looking torn up. You may want to put some floating plants and some ground decorations to help give them places to hide. If it gets worse you may want to separate the fish.
