    Yesterday my friend bought a gold fish from nearest pet shop and the store guy sold it as a comet but this one seems like Shubunkin for me. Me and my friend keep arguing about that today. Somebody please confirm the breed.

    Open Abscess on Goldfish

    Around 5 years ago I rescued these 3 goldfish. They were super tiny, and in that time I’ve upgraded them from a 2 gallon tank, to 10, 29, and now 60. I’m running a Fluval fx4 on the tank. I do weekly or large bi-weekly water changes. I always considered them to be thriving as they continue to...

    Any idea what this is?

    Hi guys. I have a 4.5 year old goldfish and just noticed this weird spot on his side. I’m having a hard time telling what it is. My first thought was he just injured a scale but the more I look at it the more I’m not so sure. Is it a cut? Infected? A parasite? A tumor? How do I find out? He’s...

    My Goldfish

    I bought this tank & light for $50, I am trusting this home will be enough for at least a year before needing larger quarters. This is a 40-45 gallon tank. I regimes goldfish from 2 gallon tank, previously in a cut crystal bowl of 1 gallon.

    Fancy Goldfish Poo

    Hi, I have had my two pearlscale goldfish in my 120 litre tank for about 6 months now, and I just cannot get the filters to collect the poo. The problem is with fancy goldfish is that they cant swim well, so heavy flow is not possible as they would not be able to swim against it. I already have...
