Comments Plants added only a few months ago. Please excuse the breeding net. I'm trying to grow out a handful of floating plants in the better lighting of this tank, and the goldfish keeps eating them. Update! Removed the fake plants and changed to pool filter sand. Onion plants not doing too well, but everything else is great.

Goldfish are social, so you may want to consider putting her in a larger tank with other goldies. That tank is gorgeous, though!

Nice to know ya Squid. Your fish is cool, and so's the tank. Way to go. People are so used to seeing stunted little goldfish. I have seen a moor almost a foot long. About the size of a smallish cat.

Glad you like it, Puffer! Sadly, her tankmate passed away from a tumor a few months ago, and I'm waiting until I move to set up a 40 breeder for her and any new friends. Thanks, Gold Finger! Like I said, I was very excited to see your planted goldfish tank post. They tend to have such a bad reputation, I'm always glad to find other goldie enthusiasts.
