What do baby goldfish eat in a tank?
Unless the baby goldfish is fry size which means it cannot eat regular sized food as of yet (flakes or pellets) then yes, you can put small goldfish with large goldfish. While they may not necessarily eat the baby, there could be a concern with fin nipping, but as long as the smaller fish have a place to hide and feel safe, there shouldn't be an issue.
Well in ponds baby goldfish fry will survive by eating small microorganisms living in the pond. To compensate for a lack of these in a newly set-up breeding tank, goldfish hobbyist will instead feed the fry brine shrimp and home cultured Euphoria. They will do this until the goldfish fry are big enough to eat regular goldfish food.
No actually. When I got my baby goldfish, he was fine in a large glass tank with a filter, a bunch of colorful rocks, and a bunch of decorations. Just don't put he/she in a tank with goldfish that are older, bigger, or goldfish that ur new baby goldfish just doesn't know because, believe it or not, goldfish can be aggressive. They can also be very territorial. I hoped I helped alot. Ur Welcome. :)
You would need to put goldfish eggs in a separate tank, and yes, you may have to take the goldfish eggs out of the main tank where all the goldfish are, because the adult goldfish will eat the eggs. However, you can just cover the goldfish eggs in a plastic see-through box while being inside of the main tank if you don't want to take it out, just in case you may harm it, and…
Goldfish are not livebearers so they are never truly pregnant. If you think your goldfish is pregnant than she is just getting ready to spawn by becoming full of eggs. Unless there is a male goldfish present the eggs will be unfertilized and will not hatch into baby goldfish fry. Your female goldfish will soon lay her eggs, and if no further action is taken, she will then eat them. As for the small tank…
Goldfish are egg-spawners. If you want to breed them, you need: * two aquariums--a 20-gallon spawning tank, and a 10-gallon grow-out tank. Neither one should have gravel or a filter in it. * a male and a female goldfish, both at least three years old * baby goldfish food Put about three inches of water in the grow-out tank. Put the adult goldfish in the spawning tank. When the goldfish are ready to spawn, the…
depends on the size of the goldfish. with your tank, i'd say one baby goldfish. if your goldfish is bigger than, say, one inch, it DEFINITELY needs a bigger home. putting more than one tiny goldfish in such a small tank is a capital crime. the PETA folk suggest that such offenders be kept in a 6'x8' room with an open latrine to simulate what the goldfish feel.
Goldfish "spawn" they do not get pregnant because they are egg layers and the eggs are fertilised after they are released from the females body. Goldfish will eat their eggs if they can find them, so either the fertilised eggs or the goldfish should be removed once 'spawning' is completed if you wish to raise some of the young. BTW 1 goldfish spawning can produce many thousands of babys.
If eggs, or fry (baby fish) are left in the same tank as a parent, or any other goldfish for that matter before they are much more formed and able to eat regular sized goldfish food, they will be eaten. Even when an offspring is large enough for the main tank that the parents are in, they don't appear to show any parental behaviours like humans or other animals that care for their young.
