HI ...this might not be much help but a housemate of mine had a celestial and had to be really carefull feeding it as all the others got there 1st...however once it got to a fair size it would feed from his hand .......and be carefull of anything jagged in your tank as they can only see upwards..........obviously ..Ha Ha ..

what tank size do you have? Fancy Goldfish need at least 10 gallons for each one, preferably 20 gallons for the first one and ten for each next one.

Ok...i'm a bit worried. My goldfish have these little white things on their tails and the fins seem to be torn. I looked at a few other posts and it seem like they have ich and fin rot. I have a heater in the tank and it keeps the water temp between 74 and 76 degrees. I know for a betta you can raise the water temp to 86 for about a week, but can I do this with my goldfish? How do they get those kinds of diseases anyway?
Please help.

The white on the goldfish's tail is fin rot.
Here's a link for curing it:


Here's a link for the bubble popping:

Ruby, your bubble eye's eye sac will grow back but not as good as before.
