The best thing to do would be to go to a place that sells the fish. They would be able to tell you.

Ideal pH levels are slightly alkaline, between 7.2 and 7.6 Temperature should be 74. Your hardness should be between 11 and 22 (measured in German degrees, as most tests do, this translates to 200-400 ppm). Nothing I have read has concrete answers on dissolved oxygen unfortunately, all they say is that goldfish need a lot of it. Making sure you have good water movement (NOT a bubbler, but actual movement, such as from powerheads and some types of filter) will contribute to high oxygen levels, as will plants that are broader-leafed (so your goldies don't eat them). Hope this helps!

Shuttle breeding is a technique for growing a crop which involves growing two successive plantings a year- one in the summer season in a location where growing conditions are favorable and the then moving the plants to another location during the winter season to a new location where winter conditions are favorable to plant growth. This makes the growing process faster.

I believe you mean water temperature i have never readed anything about that but i say water temp 23 celcius ?? if its not im still willing to receive the right temperature at my email
