    I find that it is better to find a breeder and get/order from them. More expensive, since you almost always need shipping, but worth it in the long run.

    I have goldfish that eat almost every plant there is, and the tiny amount they don't eat, they enjoy ripping the leaves off of. The only plant I can grow is Anubias. I stick them with an elastic to a...

    Yes and yes. Goldfish breeders love using temperature to get the goldfish in the mood. That being said, when you do a water change, ensure that you aren't dropping the temperature too much. A rapid...

    Not to bring this thread back to life (zombie), but I've been gone for awhile, and so didn't get a chance to weigh in on this.

    Wen growth is tough, since genetics plays a huge part in the size and progression of the wen. If it finds food and isn't getting injured on items in the tank, all is well. Once it has trouble eating...

    Goldfish eat most plants, they rip out the plants they don't eat and they don't really clean algae, but they will interfere with glass cleaning fish or snails. Once the goldfish are large enough,...

    If the other fish are pocking, it might be worth trying to feed a little more (2-5% of body weight) or at least more frequently (4-5 times a day). Also, make sure you have quality food (hikari or new...

    Two eheim 2217s? That's a bit much. I only need 1 on my 90gal goldfish tank. For a 55 gal, one 2217 would be plenty. I would even go down to 2215. I run a 2213 on my 32gal. As long as you change your...

    Sounds normal enough, although it shouldn't be so afraid of you. The dorsal fin goes up and down all the time, but startled movements shouldn't be too frequent, since that would indicate flashing. If...
