friend_o_fish said:What kind of fish do you have? I have a 10 gallon tank that I raise feeder gold fish in. We raise them in pairs of two until they are about 5in long.We haven't lost a single fish to this day. Also to keep the glass Kleen we have a Plecstomus.
actually comets and commons aren't just varieties of eachother. they are each their own type of goldfish breed. commons have short stubby tails and fins and comets get longer fancier looking fins. not the same but are easily confused.. heartDebi said:I have comets, which is a variety (I believe) of the common goldfish. My biggest is about 30cm - he's huge and eating everything in the tank (weed). He is such a pig that we named him piggy. Two (yes that's his name) is about 25cm and Runt is 20cm. Two and Runt are quickly following suit with piggy and I am trying to find them new homes....
before I got into cichlids, I had what I was told were "lion head" goldfish ...they were all named after the lion king movie!! I use to look for the ones that EVERYONE called ugly, and bought them right up!! Then my entire tank got velvet disease...which I found out since then, was because I was majorly overstocked!! ...I miss those fish very much!!!!!!Peter243243 said:Which do you have?
Tell me if I missed anything.
