Gave Up Keeping Fancy Goldfish


I had 3 of them in a 55 gallon tank and they all seem to suffer from swim bladder issues at some point.

I love them but the obviously chunky artificial bodies due to breeding have caused them to have mishaped swim bladders. I have downgraded and only keep 1 betta in a 5 gallon tank and it’s just so much better not to have to deal with the swim bladder stuff.

I hope someday I can get a pond and keep some single tailed goldfish as the bodies of the fish are as nature intended to be.

Anyone else try to keep fancy goldfish and succeed?

75g Discus Tank

Ive had my fancies for about 4 ish months now. I got them as juvies and they are all good. They aren’t the strongest swimmers though.
