    Hi we got this fish over a year ago from a carnival and are wondering what type of fish it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A common goldfish, most likely.

    is living with other fresh water fish in an aquarium so could it be a goldfish? We thought goldfish couldn’t live with other fish.

    When we first got the fish, it was much smaller and greenish gold. As he grew he got a black stripe on its back and once it grew to the size it is now, it lost the stripe. Thank you for the welcome as well.

    It's definitely a goldfish as far as I can tell. Common goldfish aren't usually reccomended to be kept with other fish due to their huge eventual size (over a foot long) and their ideal water temperature which is lower than most other fish. They're really more of a pond fish for these reasons, though they can be kept indoors if the aquarium is big enough.
