i have 7 fishes. 2 black moors (1 adult and one around 1.5' long) i have a pleco, a fancy fantail, 1 Shubunkin, the problem i see is that i also have 2 common goldfish with those other which as u can see are fancy goldfish, would it be a good idea to get rid of those common goldfish? i have noticed they eat most of the food and dont let the others eat as much. thanks

all because they Hog, dont euthuanize them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep them!! feed the others with a baster if you have to! use sinking food so they all get a fair chance.

If you don't want them, find some one who does. It's not really fair to a pet to euthanize it because you don't want it any more.

I honestly think you should keep the golds but move them to their own space if they are hogging the food for one a two they should not be kept in a heated tank...Here is a link with info on goldfish to another site I am a member on http://z10.invisionfree.com/WWFA/index.php?showforum=33
