Default Goldfish Project!!!

I'm starting up a new goldfish project with my 20 gallon. I bought 10 new goldfish today, all large so they're more hardy, and have put them into the tank. They're all very curious and healthy. The main reason i got these goldfish though is because i feel like they are being under-estimated. First-time fish buyers will pass through these beautiful fish and go straight to the betta's or the guppies, minaly because they think that when there are about 30 fish or more in a tank then they aren't good to buy. When my mom and i were choosing which fish to buy, my mom continously insisted on buying the goldfish. To be honest i felt like a newbie when i was buying them (i couldn't show off my awesome intelligence about fish ). True, they are a little dirty and they poop way too much, but they are always beautiful in their own simplistic way.
10 gallon: Female Cambodian Betta, 2 cories
20 gallon: planning to put some livebearers
Outside Pond: empty for the winter

Default Re: Goldfish Project!!!

You have put far too many gold fish in your tank. Please take most of them back to the LFS. Research gold fish in general, then try to set up an evviroment that will be good for several small gold fish in such a small tank.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
