my name is rebecca and i love my little fantails so much. i had a tank of 10 goldfish, fancy and comets. i had to seperate the fancy from the comets. i dont care what anyone says fancy tails need to be with fancy tails because compared to other goldies these are the gentle ones, slow unbothered little guys, i didnt know that comets would kill my fancy tails. so i thought, i love them dearly, and went out and bought them a special tank. the one survivor from the whole ordeal is now with 2 new fancy tails living happy AND not in FEAR :) good luck and kisses to everyones little fishys :D

Am very new to keeping fish, my wife is the expert. Set up a tank with everything, pump oxyginating weed etc. Started with 4 Fantails but now down to 2, they had a fin rot problem. The two Im left with are fine though. The pet shop said don't put them with other goldfish as they would bite their tails. but they are now in a much larger tank than at first, with 4 run of the mill goldfish, the smallest at least twice the size of the others, and its not a problem. In fact the others love chasing their tails for fun and playing follow the leader.

my name is paul wiiliams and my fantail is posiedon. yes i know its rather odd to name a fish however, posiedon is very special to me as he has helped me become very relaxed when needed most. see, i have heart problems and posiedon knows this,for, somehow, he swims very near to the glass whenever i have had a heart attack and only when i have one. otherwise he mainly stays near to the back. it is possible for a fish and his or her owner to communicate through some weird sense.

I spent $69.00 on my Fantail Goldfish. It was well worth it. My goldfish makes me happy when I am down.
