Well if I was a hungry goldfish I'd eat everything I could fit my mouth on lol... But yea I think they're not omnivores in the sense that they eat meat as in animal protein or muscle protein? I don't know lol.
They will eat fish if small enough to catch ans slow enough. Guppies should be mixed in with goldfish because goldfish are coldwater and guppies are tropical. There not much I will recommend putting in goldfish tank... Also goldfish in wild are like vacuum eating any bug and plant that's gets in there way so that's why they are consider omnivores. If had to choose what side the lean more too I will say bugs/worms.yasha said:So there more of a bug/worm and plant eater not really a fish eater tho right? Do they eat fish in the wild and if I were to put a guppy with a full sized fancy goldfish would it hunt and eat the guppy or just eat it if its in its face? I guess I should have new as I know they eat worms Idk why I wasn't thinking of that fact.
You guys are really good with the info and help.

Lets stop while we are ahead before a mod comes lol... About that goldfish food what are you going to end up getting?Dom90 said:Lol I said want but it probably won't happen... Plus the wife says I'm not allowed to have any fish that requires live fish as a diet... She thinks it's animal cruelty and I kinda have to agree.
So your getting yourself some paradigm fish food too?Dom90 said:I have an Aussie also, purebred had since she was just 8 weeks old.. We feed our dogs the Merrick grain free, different flavor with every other bag. So I want to feed my fish the best too, it's worth it and it only costs a few dollars more, for both dog and fish food.
Both look like amazings dogsyasha said:I know were off topic but I think the topic is mostly done and is it ok if I say its ok in my thread? lol
My boy I had at about 8 months I believe someone lived in a apartment that couldn't have dogs and still got him. Had to give him up after the land owner fond out. hes around 5 now and the aussie mix is around 2.
Pleasure. It's hard at times with all the marketing hype behind products and yes I well understand it can get somewhat costly but the way I look at it is I was given the responsibility to be a fishkeeper and in all due respect, they deserve the best that we can do within our means. With what I feed my stock I've never had issues but I also got mine from a high quality breeder from back east who also fed the same as me.yasha said:Thank you both.
