I have a lion head. He was cute but he got aggressive and seems to have killed my fish. When I put other fish in with him he starts butting them.
I am thinking of getting a Lionhead Goldfish, because they are totally cute!! And chubby man...who ate all the pies!

I already have loads of fish but the Lionhead beats them all!! I have 3 mini~sharks, two sting rays (believe it or not!) 5 piranas and 6 tropical warm~water fish but my collection is steadily growing! My house is becoming over~run with fish now!
I personally love lionheads!! I have one now that I have had him (im assuming)for about 3 years. His name is Squeegy and he is extremely active. He has grown to about 5 inches long, and does not look like he is going to stop growing any time soon. I have noticed that he is quite fond of fresh peas, and is a pig when it comes to feeding time. I highly recommend this type of fish for anybody who loves goldfish. Lionheads are beautiful and they are funny to watch and raise.

I had beautiful lion head goldfish which died due to lack of oxygen. . . She was stunning to look and was always very active but today i forgot to check my aquarium before leaving to office and my air pump had stopped working. Some how male fish survived but my beautiful little jenny died:( i am feeling so sad for her. . . My bad:(
I HAVE 12 LIONHEADS AND 1 BLACK MOOR IN A 60 GAL. FISH TANK. THEY ARE FUN TO WATCH AND FEED. THEY WOULD SWIM ALL OVER THE PLACE AND SOMETIMES LOOK LIKE A SCHOOL TOGETHER. THEY LOVE TO KNOW THIEE SURRONDINGS. I HAVE 4 ORANGE OR RED, 4 BLACKS, AND 4 OTHER COLOR. THEY ARE STILL SMALL BUT FAT. THEIR HEADS ARE DEVELOPING TOO. THEY ARE NOT FOR BEGINNERS. I HAVE LOST 2 DUE TO ILLNESS, AND HEATED WATER.
