Can you keep Celestial Eye Fancy Goldfish with Common Gold Fish?
Yes, you can quite happily keep common comet goldfish with celestial eye fancy goldfish, as well as other cold water species. Celestial eye fancy goldfish are a slower swimming species, so care must be taken to ensure they are not out-competed for food by faster-swimming species. The growth rate may also differ, but this is often a result of being beaten to food by other, faster fish.
Celestial Eye goldfish have been selectively bred in Korea, China and Japan, and are a very friendly and active variety of goldfish. Bug Eye goldfish thrive in cold to temperate community aquaria. Slow swimmers, very conducive to a peaceful aquarium environment, Celestial Eye goldfish are ideal tankmates around smaller shoaling fish such as danios or white cloud mountain minnows.
