It isn't a swimming upside down floating action, rather it's a full on food-seeking, backflips, very controlled swimming. Both my fish are still absolutely fine and dandy. Yaaayy!!
I've kept a black bubble eye for over 18 months. his sac have never gave him a problem. when they are young they look clumsy but with age they learn speed is needed to catch the flakes before the faster fishes. i agree they do get infection easily but a very friendly fish, loves eating.
I just got a Bubble Eyed Goldfish today, and I have never had one before; so, I don't know for sure how great a pet they are. In the past though, I have had TONS of different types of freshwater goldfish including the Black Moor, Fantails, ext. So far, she is doing excellent with the other fishes in the tank.
I have had goldfish for a few months now - they are beautiful fish with real character. However I would not recommend these fish for beginners as their bubbles are so delicate. If you do decide to buy one of these fish, PLEASE make sure your filter intake is covered with nylon so they do not get their bubbles sucked in and deflated. Also, sharp decorations and rocks should not be present. If possible keep these fish only with other bubble-eyes or celestial goldfish as they have a hard time competing for food. Although it may be cute to see your fish swimming on it's back, this is a sign of poor water quality or incorrect diet so please make sure you do your homework before buying any fish. Bubble-eyes can live for up to 15 years (and over!) so please make sure you research and provide the best possible environment for your fish.
We've had our Bubble Eye(Cheeks) along with some regular goldfish, a koi, a betta, and a sucker fish for about 2 months now. They've all gotten along swimmingly! We pretty much jumped right into the "fish tank" thing, but I've had no problems with Cheeks. I did however, notice that one of his sacs is deflated! Not sure how it happened, but from reading the comments left on this site, I have nothing to worry about! But, I just had to say that as a beginner set of fish, they are excellent! I recommend Bubble Eyes!
I today found out that our little bubble eye fish was stuck to the filter. It took a lot for me to pull the little guy off and he is still alive and swimming around like normal so I think he is gonna be ok (I hope so). His little bubble was deflated but I noticed its getting a little bigger again, I hope he'll be okay. They are such cute little fish.
I Have a bubble eye fish (Daisy) and a feeder fish (Flounder). they get along VERY well. I had Daisy first. I originally had two bubble eyed fish but one died so I wanted her to have a companion, thats when I got Flounder. Daisy swims on her back a whole lot then when its feeding time she does these cute little flips eating the food while Flounder is zipping around the tank eating his. they are a lot of fun to watch. when Daisy first started swimming on her back I thought she was dead the first time I saw her, but now I get worried when I see her upright too long. Its been going on for about 6 months now, love the fish!
I've had one for about 1 and a half months. one of the other fish i have is a feeder fish and he keeps attackin my bubble eye so we replaced him with a different feeder fish. what I didn't expect was for the new fish to do the same thing. so now the first one somehow popped one of the bubbles. so I recommend not to mix feeder fish with a bubble eye for the reasons above.
Been keeping bubble eyes for several months, about half a year. Originally had 2, but one died from flipover despite all attempts to help it, even the other fish tried to console it. After the last filter died we decided to get a new one, however the bubble somehow got into the filter through the 3 milimeter tall slits. we eventualy pulled him out but the sac seems damaged and he can't move his eye, there may also be limited small bleeding. As a note, this is a warning for owners of bubble eyes, if you have a filter make sure it's not too powerful, or it will damage the fish.
i have a bubble eyed gold fish as my brother gave me him just before christmas. its fun to watch swimming around with his big bubbly cheeks! i wonder how long i can keep him alive hmmmm! well ill have to wait n see BUBBLE FISH ROCK WHOOOOOO!
