I love my two goldfish. I named them Patches and Bubbles. Patches is mostly white with a bit of red and Bubbles is the complete opposite!

my family has got 3 fantails and the best thing about them is that you get to chouse what color, shape and size, THEY ROCK!
I added a fantail to my Kindergarten classroom and the children just love it!! Of course they had to name it Nemo :)
i have a rat, 2 betta, and a frog. And, people say goldfish are the easiest pets to care for, but whenever i get one it always dies... And i dont know what im doing wrong.
Hey I just got them for 99cents. They were on sale and they rock. I did not know much about them but this site gave me information.
I bought a fantail goldfish and he was great but a feeder fish that I had gotten as a gift was sick and ended up dieing taking my precious "Eagle" with her. I was so mad. I went to the local Petco where the diseased fish was bought and I discovered that half the fish were dead and floating in the tanks. Nobody knew anything, I took it upon myself to become my own fish expert and now I don't listen to anything those Petco people say. Ask your local pet store what days their new fish come in and try to make your buy then. But what can I say, fantails rock!
Fan tails are the cocker spaniels of the fish world. Cute, fluffy, and really dumb. They will eat ANYTHING. Mine "mooch" by coming to the edge of the tank and wiggling around until they're fed. They can get pretty aggressive during the AM feeding. I've put them alone in their own tank without other fish, primarily because they've grown so large. Watch the ammonia levels, they can get out of control in a short time.
I have three fantails, one is really big and two smaller ones. i also have i normal goldfish, a bottom feeder, and two snails. today i had to use tweesers to pull the bottom feeder from my biggest fantails mouth. i was told that wouldn't happen but it truely did, and i feed them quite alot so they were NOT starving. the amazing thing, both the bottom feeder and the fantail are still alive. the bottom feeder is tailless the poor thing but alive and the big fantail looks as if he will be fine. (i had to pull him out because the fantail couldn't swalllow it and couldn't breath)!
im a mysterious guy,i got 8 fantails and 2 died. im sad, but the other ones make me so happy. i love my fantails
