Ease of care
Easy. We recommend having at least 30 litres of water per Goldfish. A lot of waste is produced so an adequate filter and pump are needed. They do eat plants so you can use plastic plants instead, for decoration. They must never be kept in unfiltered tanks.
Flake & sinking pellets are best. High Protein fish food when they are breeding. Sinking Pellets are best to help prevent swim bladder issues.
Community with other peaceful Fancy Goldfish & bottom feeders such as a Borneo Loach in cold water tanks.

Moderate. They are egg layers and breed best when in groups as they are very social.
They can live up to 10-15 Years in perfect conditions.
