Yes, they are in the same family, in fact, goldfish are a type of carp.
Goldfish are best with goldfish. A molly and a goldfish have very different needs including the fact that a molly is a tropical fish
yes in fact i have a normal orange goldfish and a panda at home in my fish bowl
I know as a fact (from a book) that a goldfish only has a three-second memory. So I never expect my goldfish to recognize me as their owner! =)
No they do not. In fact, quite often goldfish eat the eggs before they can even hatch if they are together.
Goldfish can have many eggs. In fact, female goldfish are known to lay thousands of eggs. It's important to know before tarting to breed these kind of fish.
yes you can keep your comet goldfish in a goldfishpond.In fact having them in a pond is a good idea, as long as they are not subjected to herons and other predators, because this variety of goldfish gets very large: up to a foot! :)
The biggest goldfish that are on record are primarily single tailed fish due to the fact that they grow quite long rather than in girth compared to a fancy goldfish such as a fantail.
The oldest living goldfish in the world are Koi (singletail) most likely due to the fact that they are (normally) housed in large ponds. Although there are many fancy goldfish that live a long time, Koi surpass them in longevity.
It is a myth that goldfish have short term memories; in fact researchers from the Technion Institute of Technology in Israel were able to determine that goldfish can actually recall information for up to 5 months
Of course a goldfish can drown, they may live most of there life in water but that's like saying we cant suffercate because we live most of our lives on land so yes goldfish or in fact any fish can drown. when a goldfish drowns they die :/
I think it's KOI I have a friend who's is a really big koi lover. He is very adamant about the fact that koi are not goldfish!
Goldfish are available in more colors than just gold. In fact, there are goldfish that are colored yellow, red, bronze, blue and even black! What's more, some goldfish have a mixture of colors in their scales, with varying shades, hues, or colored shapes.
Yes, sand does very well in a goldfish tank. In fact, it helps goldfish break down food when sucked in with it. It also makes clean up much easier if you use a siphon or baster.
There are numerous differences not only in the type, body shape and even colours, but the fact that a goldfish is a freshwater fish, and a clownfish is a saltwater fish.
the whole idea of a pregnant goldfish being called a twit is a joke based on the fact that fish don't get pregnant. They lay eggs which are then fertilised by the male
No. Goldfish in fact are basically the fish that will get sick the SLOWEST because they are extremely hardy and have almost no requirements other than food and water.
I just read an article that said that it is because you have not changed water weekly as needed. My goldfish did that too. In fact I just learned how to treat it about 2 seconds ago.
Goldfish are best living with goldfish with the exception of weather (dojo) loaches, bristlenose plecos, or apple/mystery snails if you have the space.Guppies have different needs, not to mention the fact that they are a tropical fish & belong in warmer water.
Some common breeds of goldfish are: the Black Moor goldfish, the Ryunkin goldfish, the comet goldfish, the common goldfish, the Calico Fantail goldfish, the telescope eye goldfish, the bubble eye goldfish, the pearl scale goldfish and the Oranda goldfish.
Miley Cyrus does in fact have a single goldfish which she keeps in her childhood home.
Goldfish cannot live properly in a 5 gallon tank. Goldfish need 20 gallons for the first fish, and 10 gallons per additional fish after.It's not simply about their size potential, which is big, but the fact that they produce a lot of waste.Guppies and goldfish are not compatible as they have different water needs.
I know as a fact (from a book) that a goldfish only has a three-second memory. So I never expect my goldfish to recognize me as their owner! =) Despite popular opinion that goldfish have no memory it has been show in many studies they do have long term memories. It is generally accepted be around two week but some studies have shown it to be up to 11 months.
None; that would work for one betta fish, but not a goldfish.One goldfish needs 20 gallons alone, plus 10 gallons per additional fish (so 30 gallons for 2 goldfish).It's not just about their size potential, but the fact that they produce a high amount of waste.
Yes. The problem is simply that most people can't keep goldfish alive until sexual maturity because they are usually kept in tanks too small for them and they die young. A Fightn' Fact- Fancy goldfish: 1 Fish= 29+ Gallons 1-Tail Goldfish: 1 Fish= 55+ Gallons
