bubble eyed goldfish are a coldwater fish,you can feed flake,pellets,veg ie cucumber, peas,if you decide to get one please watch tank decor there eyes are very delicate....

I think you might need a bigger tank for a goldfish. Goldfish get big. And the bubble eyed ones get up to 5 inches (I think). But IDK. You might be able to get away with having just one.

Welcome to the forum!!

You'll need a bigger tank for that goldfish..

Keep the 10g as a QT tank, if you HAVE to have this type of fish..

welcome to ac!

goldfish need 20g for the first fish, 10g each thereafter, HOWEVER, if you have a good filter plus faithfully do a 50%-75% WC weekly one in a 10g is possible

Hey welcome to the AC!
glad your interested in these fish they are awesome! But make sure you have only smooth surfaces and no sharp Decors in your tank! you will pop their fluid filled sacks under their eyes! They are very sensitive and very suseptable scrapes and scratches and even sag when punctured...

Remember to keep the tank free of sharp and jaggesd edges!

ditto! almost forgot to add that, make sure for decor you keep stuff with soft edges like silk plants

...and keep in mind, that goldfish are schooling fish...one isn't a good idea...they need company...
