    Giving Up On Goldfish

    I think I give up on trying to keep goldfish in a community setting. My first (and last) goldfish was just placed into qt, and I am hoping he makes it through the night. If he does I will wait until he is back to full health and donate him to a friend with a pond in their garage. Two of the...

    Goldfish Alone or Pair?

    Right now I have a 90 gallon unheated tank, sits between 67.9 and 69.8, throughout the day. I only stocked it 3 days ago with a pair of young red cap oranda goldfish, 3 dojo loaches, and a dozen white cloud mountain minnows.

    Fine Bubble Airstone

    So, I was doing some online shopping for my upcoming goldfish tank. I have decided on substrate, decorations, and plants. I have my airpump, but now I need an airstone. I know the goldfish need more oxygen, which means I need more gas exchange, which I believe means I need finer bubbles...

    Plant suggestions for low-light outdoor pond

    Title says most of it. I have a 300l goldfish pond, lightly stocked (3 fish) and under shade most of the time. The water is quite cold due to its outdoor setting and lack of heating, so I need plants that will withstand and thrive in these conditions. What species would work?

    So I am setting up an 80 gallon for goldfish. I was thinking I wanted 5 goldfish, with some tank mates. What are my options? Ph around 7.4 and hardness tends toward 110 ppm. It would be an unheated tank, so think 68 to 70 °F. I was thinking 3 Hoplo catfish and a BN Pleco.
