I have a lionhead named Blobby and i highly recommend them. Make sure that you choose one that appears very active when you buy it because it will probably be healthier and more entertaining!
these are nice pets to have and are generally good to have around the pond

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!
Mad Sad Bad Fish Owner
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.

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.
