Ease of care
Easy. We recommend having at least 35 litres of water per Goldfish. A good filter is highly recommended as they like good water conditions and they are messy.
Flake and small Goldfish sinking pellets are best. High Protein fish food when they are breeding is best.
Community with other peaceful fancy goldfish and bottom feeders such as a Borneo Loach in cold water aquariums. They will eat live plants.
Moderate. They are egg layers and breed best when in groups.
They can live up to 10-15 Years in perfect conditions.
