I just got two fantail goldfish. Their names are Phil COllins, and Harold. I'm keeping both of them in a 4L tank but I don't think that's big enough, so I think I'll get a bigger tank. They're so cute, and getting used to living in their new home so quickly. Harold is white with an orange spot on his head, and Phil Collins is orange with a white tummy. =D
I loves my goldfishies.

I have three fantail goldfishes and 1 weather loach. I feed them twice a day at 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. I always show them the fish food can and they get happy. I taught the biggest one (it is about 3 inches long) a trick with it. I hold a flake on top of the water and he jumps out of the water and gets it. When I feed them they are always at the top of the aquarium. The small and medium size goldfish are changing colors. The small one is turning red and the medium one is turning white. The weather loach always steals food from the goldfishes mouths.

I have one exotic named "Jessie" and one plecostomus "Heckle". They are 2.5 yrs. old now. They play tag all day long and dig in the stones at night. Sometimes the pleco will pick up a stone swim over the top of the air skeleton and bomb it with the stone, causing it to fall over. Jessie has now caught on to the game and is doing the same things Heckle does. These breeds of fish are very intelligent.

Unfortunately i lost a fantastic goldfish named george a couple of months ago. he was about a year old. I was very very upset, but today my fiance's mother bought me the most beautiful Fantail. I cant think of a name though. Maybe Mariah. I am so happy to have another fish in my life.
