I LOVE MY BUBBLE EYE GOLDFISH IS SO PEACEFUL AND CUTE. I JUST FEEL BAD ABOUT HIM BECAUSE HIS EYE SACS WILL SOON MAKE HIM UNABLE TO SWIM. HOWEVER I HOPE HE ENJOYS SWIMING NOW BEFORE IT HAPPENS.

hi there i love bubble eye gold fish when i went into walmart, i saw one little bubble guy all alone.i fell in love with him. hes white and so cute his name is bubble but. now hes got a sore so i have been putting med it fix to help him. my orange one is called tropica. i love him too. he got caught in a filter the other day and i hope he will be ok.if your bubble guy has a hard time eating, get those sinking granulars. they are food that sinks to the bottom and the fish eat it. i love my bubble fish and dont want to lose them. they really got cute personalities on them and i am really attached to them. wish i could just pet them. the only place that sells them here is walmart. no pet stores, very rare here.

Lydia, to be honest swimming upsidedown is a sign of swim-bladder disease. It is NOT fatal, but I reccomend treatment.

Lee, You can get either flakes or frozen foods, both of these sink to bottom quite fast

My experience with Bubble-eyes is that the bubble does grow back after being deflated. Typically, it will turn black as a sign that it is healing.

Our bubble eye (Nemo) lives in our pond. He has gotten his bubble stuck in the string algae several times this year. The first time I had to just cut the string it was so tightly wrapped. His bubble turned black and then deflated. It is now back to normal, just a few weeks later and he is as cute as ever.

I love bubble eye fish too but I got a bigger problem then getting his bubble stuck in the filter. It stuck twice, shrunk until not seen and then it grew back. But alas, it grew back twice the size. So my bubble eye is very healthy but the sacs have since grown so big that he cannot see properly. He cannot even breathe properly as the sacs keep obstructing his mouth, and most importantly, the sacs are too heavy for him. He can hardly swim and that means he has no strength to swim up for food. Guys, really appreciate if anyone out there got a remedy. I love my bubble eye and do not want him to die like that.

I never thought that I would be interested in goldfish because I had only ever had tropical fish in my two foot tank but when all of my tropical fish died due to fungus ( which they caught from the pet shop we bought them from only the day before) we went up to our local nursery to see what fish they supplied and then I saw the Bubble eyed goldfish I fell in love with them instantly and bought one to start of with we named it Bubbles (I know how original.)We have had bubbles for a month now and we are going to get two more to keep bubbles company. We love Bubble to bits because he has so much character and you need to look after them a bit more then the average gold fish.

I never thought I would be into fish but when I saw the bubble-eye I fell in love. They are the funniest little fishies, who would have thought that fish could be so entertaining? I could watch their swimming style and the way they rub their little bubbly cheeks against each other every now and then, for hours on end.
I think it is really cool that their eyes are at the front of their face and that they can look straight out at you from the tank.

These fish have personality plus. I have two and they are called Cherry (short for Cherub) and Cooky, because he is. Cooky is cool because he swims upside down in the tank scanning the gravel... Amazing!!
