Ive had a bubble eye for a few years now. Her name is J lo because of her big booty. I have never had such a lazy but energetic fish before. She sleeps alot but once she smells food rushes to the top! I think shes very intersting since she floats butt up and sometimes swims upside down. she loves the micro bubbler and sometimes takes bites of air. It was an adoption fish I've grown to love.

I got my snail and then the next day it was dead. I don't understand why. I put one tablet in the tank, but he still didn't eat it. It climbed up the side and then the next morning he was dead. I think I'm going to go get another one. I just hope I won't kill that one.

I have a bubble eye and her name is little bub! shes so funny. I have had her for almost a year now. Shes a tough cookie and has survived longer than some of her past tank mates. Right now she is living with my Telescope eye Rick. Goldfish types like bubble eye and telsescope eye are the best types to be kept together because they both have poor vision due to their obstructions around there eyes. so they both will have an equal chance at finding their food and not be beaten to it by fish with "better" vision. So if you are thinking of getting a telescope or bubble eye fish, i would suggest keeping their list of potential tank mates selective. Your fish will be happier and healthier. Little bub and rick are the best of friends and do very well together, i am soon getting another bubble eye to add to the tank and hopefully they will all be good friends!

I once had 200 bubble eyed fish at once. They were all named individually, and loved equally. They somehow all started dying at the same time. They were all dead within a month of each other. To this day I still do not know why they died. :( I cried for days, and I still miss them. They were 3 years old, and beautiful. I miss them so much!

i got a bubble-eyed goldfish for my birthday when i turned 20. this was a few years ago but i still think about moby from time to time. he was one of the greatest pets i'd ever had. he sometimes reminded me of a dog because he would dig in his rocks and sit (yes, sit) in this little plastic tree i put in his bowl. he was always friendly and would come up to me when i would get near the bowl. i didn't know a fish could have so much personality. he was a trooper, too. he got ick and i thought that was the end. but i was able to save him which was awesome. when i moved back to the valley there were a few more bugs then the beach he was used to, then i left him at my gramma's one weekend and she changed his water and accidentally caused his death. i was so sad. they're delicate little fish but he was my buddy for about 6-7 months. rip moby.

I bought my bubble eye just yesterday. i called it chubby cheeks. to me they are just so cute and deserve a good life, if you are thinking of buying one make sure that you look into it and ask help from a specialist in these fish, for they are very sensitive and delicate, especially with there little sacks. if you do have one please take good care of it.

I've loved bubble-eyed for such a long time, finally have the technique for these delicate little fishies down. Amazingly, i've found bubble-eyed fish to be highly social little beings and need other BUBBLE-EYED fish to interact with or they get depressed. The more you have in one tank, the happier they all are. I have a tank with 4 and they are the silliest and happiest looking ive ever had. Also, bigger fish just trouble them more because it's already hard enough for them to get food without bullies stealing it from them. They should be the biggest or same size as the biggest fish in the tank. Finally...the biggest problem, the doom of many bubble-eyed: the filter-intake! First of all, bubble-eyed are shy and like to hide in plants alot; hence, do not place hidden in some plants. Also, most importantly, cover it with a piece of NYLON (do not use tape, it may poison the water) nylon will not obstruct water flow and in case the bubble-eyed gets a cheek in the filter, it is soft enough and thick enough to relatively leave him unharmed, maybe a little bloodshot cheek. I am not an expert and this is only based on my experience, but i have had 6 bubble-eyed in my life and some lasted days, some months, some years and i just wanted to share my expierences and know how hard it is to take care of these delicate clowns!

I just got my new fish the day before yesterday: 3 goldfish and a bubble-eyed fish. But today i saw him stuck in the filter! I got him off and aside from a little redness and swelling and sideways swimming he was fine. But then his tail-fins got stuck in the bubbilator intake and got shredded!! I had to honorably discharge him in the toilet. I need a way to keep the filter intakes covered so they still take in water but not my poor bubbly!
