I have a goldfish named Bubbles and he is a very good fish, and it`s
a pleasure to have him. He is a chubby goldfish and makes me laugh so
hard I cough! One time I woke up, looked at his tank and he was staring at me! It creeped me out! Bubbles is very well and still makes me laugh.

I have two fantails I have had for over 2 years now, named Frick and Frack. I have recently bought them a new 29 gallon home with new rocks, plants, etc. They are obviously so happy with their much larger home (they moved from a 10 gallon) and play in the bubbler whenever it is daylight. I will sometimes sneak in in the middle of the night and turn on a night light to watch them snooze. I can watch them for hours, and enjoy them more than TV after a long day at work.

I had a beautiful fantail goldfish not too long ago. Jamal was the cutest fish Ive ever had! He was white with orange spots. Jamal would swim upside down sometimes. He got along with all the fish in my tank. But, his was bestest buddy was my other common goldfish, named Sadam. After Jamal passed away, Sadam became so sad. But, no worries! I'm getting Sadam more fantail friends.

I have two Gold Fantail Goldfish. One is all gold and one is gold but with the tips of all the fins are colored in black. They are certainly beautiful and friendly with the Tetras and Koi I have swimming with them.

I've had three lovely fantail fish ever since my 17th birthday - a gift from my best friend. The first of them is named Futa. He's of an orange-red color with black tipped fins and cheeks, something that I found extremely rare. His little partner is Iori, a dusty gold, white, and black beauty with a few soft white spots. Both Iori and Futa are fiercely loyal to each other. They even rub up against one another in greeting! So cute! The third is Mako, named so because he looks like a shark. His tail is not cut like the other goldfish, making him unique.
Recently I've bought another fish. Small with an orange back and white face, I have decided to name him Shuma. He's a little wary of his bigger friends, but I think he won't be once he's older. Such a beautiful bunch I have!

My stepmom bought two fantails for my sister's birthday almost four years ago (four in October) and we named them Goldeen and No-nee. No-ee is all orangey-gold and has this huge tail that Goldeen used to hide under. Goldeen was about an even mixture of orange and white, and looked just like the pokemon! Sadly though, about two years ago, Goldeen got a stange disease all over her scales and tail, and ended up dying. No-nee was so sweet, it would push Goldeen up to the top of the tank when it was time to eat, because Goldeen wouldn't move much or swim around. She'd just it there and lie still. No-nee always gave her support and help but nothing anyone did helped, and Goldeen died one morning before my sister went to school. No-nee was so sad for such a long time, but we decided to wait to get another fish so my sister could recover from her loss. Thankfully No-nee didn't die, even though it had the disease too, but a milder version than Goldeen had. It grew much bigger since it had the tank to itself, doubled in size. A year and a half ago, we got Seaking for my sister. It, like Goldeen, looks just like its namesake pokemon. Today after I was cleaning the house after college, I noticed that No-nee's eyes look weird. From the side they look completely clear, and head-on, they look... vacant, or empty, like all the black pigment is gone. I think my beloved fish is going blind! Seaking is always closeby, and almost leads No-nee around the tank. I hope my disease surviving fish won't lose it's sight after the fight it put up!

Goldfish are amoung my favorite fish to own. I have owned several in the past 20 years. Despite what most people think, goldfish can live to be quite old if they are taken care of properly. Just recently I had my oldest goldfish die. She was about 10 years old. I was only able to get her to spawn once though, but it was fun, as I now have many of her babies swimming in my tanks!
