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.
I have never heard of a "Pond Rocket Goldfish" and I can find no listing for such an animal in any fish reference book. That fact suggests to me that someone has made up name for a fish they didn't know how to identify. If the fish is a basic goldfish shape and has a tail that is very long (about half to one body length) it is probably a "Comet"
well, an educated guess would be that the latter would chase the corpse of the dead goldfish around until it realized that the goldfish its chasing is acually really just a dead corpse. then, once this fact was realized, the (alive) goldfish would most likely eat the dead goldfish, and that wouldn't be good now would it? so you should probably, most likely try to maybe keep all of your goldfish alive and swimming, not…
You have had your goldfish for about 3 years and none of them have gotten pregnant why are they always hungry?
After 60+years of keepng fish I have never seen a goldfish 'throw-up'. In actual fact I believe it is physically impossible for a goldfish or any other fish to 'throw-up' -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you mean that you've seen a goldfish spit out food. Then goldfish sort of do that from time to time. I myself do not know the cause but it could be just be caused by getting stuck (especially with flake food because it…
Yes, you can train goldfish. Goldfish are extremely intelligent animals and are able to learn a wide range of tricks! If you are thinking about training your goldfish you might want to look on you-tube and try to find a tutorial for training goldfish. It really annoys me that people say goldfish are unable to be trained because they have a memory of 5 minutes, when in actual fact, many goldfish have been trained and…
Goldfish are very lovable because they often get attached to a particular owner that they see on a day to day basis. They most likely stare through the glass when you watch them or feed them, because they view you as some sort of "bringer of life". In fact, most fish do this, so it's not just goldfish.
Of course goldfish can live in a planted tank! In fact, I think it is even better for them. Live plants in an aquarium usually make a healthier environment. Sometimes you will notice that the goldfish might nip at the live plants (my goldfish ate a bite out of a leaf and then wouldn't eat it again) but don't worry, unless the plant is poisonous (which I doubt) the extra greens won't do any harm…
Anatomically there is very little difference between them. The main difference that matters for keeping these fish in aquariums is the temperature. Goldfish prefer temperatures in the 65F-70F, whereas tropicals require temperatures between 77F-82F generally. This fact stems from the goldfish being from a temperate region (colder) and tropicals are from the tropics, where it is warmer.
Cherry red shrimp (Neocaridina heteropoda) are tropical in their requirements and should be kept between 65F and 75F. Goldfish are coldwater fish and should be kept around 55F to 65F. That makes them incompatible as far as water conditions goes. Add to that the fact that goldfish will eat shrimps and rip off their legs, then you will understand that it is not recommended to house Cherry red shrimps with any kind of goldfish.
Goldfish are not livebearers so they do not become "pregnant" exactly. If you want her to have living young she will have to be around a male goldfish who is showing breeding "tubercules" so he can fertilize the eggs she lays. The eggs will stick to decorations. Goldfish do not care for their young at all- in fact they eat them! So if you want the baby goldfish to survive you will have to move…
No, goldfish do not need to be exposed to sunlight, in fact direct sunlight can be harmful to goldfish because if exposed for a long period of time it may heat up the tank to a potentially harmful temperature. Besides, there is no need for sunlight in an aquarium since the average aquarium light works just as well and has the same benefits of being exposed to sunlight.
Comet goldfish need at least 30 gallons each because of the type of fish they are (single tail), the fact that they can grow extremely long, and they produce a lot of waste. A fancy goldfish (fatter with more tails) need 20 gallons for just one fish, so either way, your 1 gallon tank cannot hold any goldfish at all.
Goldfish may live more than 100 years but that is not common (the world record is 44 years), but most household goldfish generally live only six to eight years, due to the fact that they are being kept in captivity. They will live less than that if kept in bad or stressful conditions like bowls and dirty water. 6 years 8 months
Assuming that the conditions of both the tank and wild are survivable, goldfish will tend to survive longer outdoors. Goldfish in general are quite durable, so living outside alone isn't an issue. In the wild, they aren't affected by the growth restrictions that tanks often cause. Goldfish also don't have very many natural predators in most places, so they can become both huge and numerous. In fact, goldfish and koi populations in some places have…
