    Well, 1 of my goldies is stunted. It is the only store bought fish I have. In 1 year, it has not grown past 4 inches, while the other 3 have grown from 3 inches to beyond 6 inches, in the same time....

    For fancy goldfish, you could have 5, provided you knew exactly how big they were going to get. Common fantails and moors tend to be a bit bigger than lionheads and pearlscales, for example. For the...

    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,...

    I know many breeders who winterize their fancy goldfish, bringing their water temperature down quite a lot. I keep my fancies at room temperature, so about 68F. You could bring it down to 60F without...

    Yes, it is so hard to say. I've almost never encountered store bought goldfish that weren't "small" - How much of that is genetics (A), and how much is stunting (B)? Either A or B, or A and B, will...

    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...

    Your ranchu is small for that age. At 2 years old, it should be 5-6 inches. Mine are 18 months old, and just past 6 inches. My demekin is also 18 months old and just past 7 inches.

    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...

    I'm always torn about feeder goldfish and what advice to follow. Before I get into that, let's answer a few questions.

    1- Yes, a feeder is the same as a common goldfish. Comets are a different...

    It is hard to say... it sounds like your fish is waking up from sleep... but for my fish, that is only at night. It could be flashing, but since it's in an established tank, it is doubtful. Do they...

    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...

    There are only 2 things I can think of that can cause this kind of change: either the nitrates are too high or this is a precursor to a flipover disorder.

    That's an oranda. It's like a fantail, except it does have a small wen. Might be genetic, but it also might need some more food. Hard to say. It's the third most common fancy goldfish after black...

    Goldfish sleep the same way regular fish do. They float, about an inch above the bottom. They twitch a little if you come near, but should be fairly calm.
