Description

Pearlscale Goldfish

Pearlscale Goldfish are an odd-looking fish that live in coldwater aquariums happily with other Fancy Goldfish. They are golf ball shaped with prominent scales, this makes them popular in the trade as they are very different to other fish.

Just like most other varieties of goldfish, this fish is prolific at creating waste. You must take special considerations to maintain optimal water quality with regular maintenance. They will benefit from having plenty of space and water to stay healthy. In addition to a fine gravel bottom or well-rounded river rocks, the Pearl Scale Goldfish will appreciate hardy, cold water plants. Keep in mind that goldfish are diggers and will scatter the fine sand onto leaves, potentially damaging thin and less hardy plants. Like all fancy goldfish, maintaining water temperature above 18 degrees is recommended.

This listing is for an assorted selection of Pearlscale goldfish. You will be supplied with a random selection of orange, red, red/white, orange/white, orange/black colouring.
