I been interested in goldfish for some time. I have tried to put egg-shaped goldfish in my tank but they never worked out, so I'm trying a Comet goldfish. I really like him. I have always liked Comets so I'm trying one out. His name is Galaxy.
I have two common goldfish and one comet. I saved them from being a gourmet dinner, LOL. I enjoy watching them, they are great pets. They are pretty easy to care for, cheap, and usually are sold for feeder fish. but I think the common goldfish is one of the finest goldfish. I like your website it has great facts about goldfish and has great picures.=)
I have two common goldfish and a comet. I had them now for a couple of months now. They live in a 36 gallon tank with eclipse filter the are very happy. I always hate looking at goldfish when they get dumped into a small bowl. Most people think that goldfish are boring but they make great pets for kids and adults. Your website has great facts and pictures. Goldfish make a great pet for many reasons one of them are they do not reguire a lot of care.
I recently took in 3 young common/comet goldfish from being used as human consumption at a University in my area. During the short period I had them-I grew very attached to all 3. My betta chased them around a bit, but they all got along. I did just release them into a home-made pond at my Aunts house, so they can grow up to be big like their new friends in the pond. Although, I do think my betta is a tad bit lonely now. Anyway, if I ever get the chance again to save/rescue/adopt some goldfish....I would do it all over again. Thanks to Shellie who actually was the one who took the 3 fish out of the horrible enviroment.
Useful, easy to use, full of information and straight forward. Good pictures. an excellent site on fish
If taken proper care, Gold fish live longer than 20 years. Goldfish are cheap but their life is not worthless. Gold fish require a lot of space for growth and are messy creatures so consider giving them a big home or keep few in small tanks (rule of thumb 5 gallons per inch of fish). Be kind and provide them good home. I hope people treat thier fish like they want themself to be treated.
I love these little fish!They are so adorable.I rescued mine at the pet store, they sold them as food for other fish.they get along with my snail verry well,and are verry pleasant.
I got my goldfish at a fair about 8 years ago, and they are still going strong. they are so good together. they are beautiful animals.
Today I bought a medium sized comet and a medium sized blackmoor. I added them to my tank which was already home to a redcap and a shubunkin. My comet which is yet to be named is very crazy as he was jumping around in the bad desperate to be free. He/She is really slender and beautiful. I enjoy watching my 4 fishes swimming around.
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!
