Goldfish are best with goldfish, but you can have weather (dojo)

loaches, or bristlenose plecos, or even apple or mystery


While there may be a number of varied opinions on this, and some

fish keepers may have had lucky success with other typically

incompatible fish in their tank, this is not the standard or proper


There are quite a few species of coldwater fish that can live

alongside Goldfish. There are Golden Orfe, Blue Dace, Rudd and

several species of catfish too. Check with your local pet shop what

coldwater species they have available on their lists.
