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.
