  1. Question Does anyone know the breed?

    0 Not allowed!
    I bought a new fish for my aquarium today. At the store, it said "XL veiltail goldfish". Came home, and looked around the web, for the specific breed. I'm leaning towards a sort of lionhead. But I read on this site, that a pure white one, is very rare. Is "he" a white lionhead?

    Hope this is posted at the right forum, and that someone can help :) And that you can se the picture :)

    Looks like a "XL veiltail goldfish" to me. The proper name would be Carassius auratus but called veiltails.

    Oranda Goldfish. Hope you have a big tank! They also need a heater if you want them healthy -- water should be no less than 72˙F.

    Actually most goldfish like the water on the cold side, and while 72 is within their comfort zone, it's not necessary to keep it at no less than 72.

    This site says 65-78 degrees:

    It's common knowledge that goldfish are a cold water species, and keeping their tank temperature anywhere within the 65-75 degree range is fine.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
